I contacted the J.D. Smith Law firm for representation due to an MVA. Jamila Taylor worked for JD at the time. JD handed my case to Jamila (training purposes I'm sure) as she did not have any experience in personal injury claims. Jamila did not indicate to me she would receive 40% (plus fees) of the settlement money as we prepared for trial. Jamila did not provide options other than pursuing trial or mediation because she would not have made as much money! In addition, Jamila Taylor did not make a third party payment as promised and well documented to LNI. There is now a third party lien on my personal property due to her greed and dishonesty. Jamila Taylor is an inexperienced/unethical/unprofessional personal injury attorney who continues to practice law! I recommend one does not contact this attorney.

Jamila displayed vitality, diligence, responsibility, and honesty in helping me to settle my personal injury case. These are the qualities that represent a good lawyer. She kept me abreast on what was going on with my case, and answered all of my questions when I was confused. With her knowledge in conjunction with her efforts, I received a very satisfying settlement. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help in settling their personal injury case.

As a former prosecutor, Jamila brings a unique perspective to criminal cases because she knows what the prosecution’s obstacles are and can use them to your advantage. She knows which litigation tactics work and which ones don’t, so she won’t waste your time or money. She is also a very experienced trial attorney and is a zealous and smart advocate for her criminal defense clients. Most importantly, Jamila is a very caring attorney who will take the time to explain legal concepts in a way that make sense to you. I highly recommend Jamila as a criminal defense attorney. She is tenacious, caring and thoughtful.
