A school known for having an exemplary litigation program giving students a solid understanding of the courtroom. During his time there, Mr. Jones earned himself a second academic scholarship and pursued his specialization in Litigation (courtroom practice).

He was so successful in the Litigation program that he was chosen to represent his law school at the American Trial Lawyers Association (A.T.L.A.) competition that takes place in Southern California.

Attorney Jones continues to remain highly dedicated to every case and situation he takes on; always striving to achieve the best possible results for his clients.

Training in Court
