The Law Firm of Douglas G Jackson and I had an almost 4 years Social Security Disability case in which the Firm worked endlessly to win my case. The Firm worked with the same effort before and after the numerous denials. The Firm never gave up until we finally obtain a favorable decision. I highly recommend The Law Firm of Douglas G Jackson to handle your case.

Settled my case successfully, but i found it to be a waste of money on limp representation. I do not feel that anyone was aggressively on my side.

My wife and I used this firm to represent us against plaintiff's insurance company. The lawyer assigned to us negotiated a reasonable settlement, and the case was closed. We will use this law firm in the future should we need legal representation in similar matters, and will recommend it to everyone who asks for a lawyer recommendation.

Without Doug and David, I would have had to find a new career. These guys are those guardian angels when you need them most. I was in a bad situation in my business and I thought I was getting pushed out of my industry by getting sued by a large firm. The Law Firm of Douglas G. Jackson knows corporate law and knows how to overcome the Goliath in the situation. David and Doug took the time to personally walk me through what was going to happen and followed that up with executing their plan.

My experience with this Law Firm was fantastic! They were excellent at getting things done and keeping me informed along the way. If you are in need of their services I highly recommend them. Everyone at the firm treated me like a friend and not just a client. And they were able to do what I needed in a little over a year. Did I mention I had tried to do the same thing on my own for over a decade with no success. I highly recommend Doug and his team!

Douglas Jackson expertly guided us through a tricky and confusing situation of fraud with a car dealership. He was proactive, insightful and knowledgeable during a difficult time that had blindsided us. Without his legal expertise and follow through, we would not have had the good result we ended up with. If you need a reliable legal advisor and advocate, look no further than Doug. He will do everything in his power to ensure that the good guy wins!

This law firm wouldn’t even give me a free or paid consultation, because they think I’m the poor little black girl looking for a handout not knowing I'm a local business ownerI answered the intake questions and the one that asked if I could afford a retainer fee… I answered no that I couldn’t afford it, but I wrote in the extra notes area that the retainer fee was in question because I needed to know if to pay the retainer fee or get my car fixed. Just because i said I couldn’t afford it… I mean I can’t afford this high rent but I still pay it… I never said I couldn’t pay it and I have the money for the retainer fee, so I had to leave this review because my notes on the intake were not discussed and I never got to talk to a person and I was referred to this company from another legal company that I’m familiar with whom doesn't handle my case. Me being a business owner…I would never ignore a client with out consulting with them verbally…. Or judge and underestimate a person that was in question about a question… I was undecided about my answer so I put no and left notes… thank you for your lack of judgement against me…really appreciate it!!!

His genuine compassion for people shines through, creating a sense of trust and camaraderie that is rare to find. St. Pete is a better community with Doug Jackson.

Doug and his team are amazing. They take fantastic care of my family and our legal needs. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Doug and his team to anyone seeking legal counsel.
Like any bad, first time Client, I came to Doug and his team in a rush to get a logo registered with the US PTO. Doug and his team understood the urgency of my request and with a few days had the application completed and a registration number so I could move forward. Subsequent issues and phone calls were dealt with immediately. Very happy with the service from Doug and his team. I would recommend the firm to any small business looking to navigate the legal paperwork to start a business.

In my line of business (medical), I have had to use attorneys for one reason or the other, and Douglas Jackson has by far superseded my expectations. He is truly knowledgeable, very approachable, and very professional.What I love the most about his service is that I can use his expertise for all aspects of my business from contract reviews, to creating new contracts for buying new equipment, for legal documents for my clients, for review of my lease. It is my "one stop shop" for attorney. He is always available. His team (employees) are well trained and take their time to listen to you.As a small business owner, I am in the best hands with Douglas Jackson! Thank you for securing and protecting my practice.

My friend is a neighbor of Mr. Jackson's and suggested I contact him for help with a problem I had with the title on a piece of property I inherited through a trust. Mr. Jackson spoke with me about the situation and was able to quickly identify the issue and formulate a plan to get it resolved and at what I considered a very reasonable fee. The rest of the team I worked with were also polite, knowledgeable and made the process easy to understand and get taken care of. I would recommend this law firm to anyone needing assistance with trusts and estates.

Mr. Jackson is an awesome attorney! A very respectful man with the expertise and experience to do the best job that anyone could possibly do for you. I am a veteran and was referred to him by a good friend that works with Mr. Jackson on helping veterans with difficult cases. I truly believe that this law firm provided me with the best outcome that anyone could have. This awesome team will leave no stone unturned in figuring out the best approach to winning your case. I am so grateful to have had the privilege of hiring Mr. Jackson for my veteran’s benefits. I believe that surrounding yourself with the right people is one of the most important steps you can do to win your case. Mr. Jackson without a doubt is one of those people you need on your side. Thank you Mr. Jackson & staff!
