Since then, Mr. Jones has represented thousands of citizens accused of every type of criminal charge at both the State and Federal levels. Mr. Jones has enjoyed protecting his clients from looming government sanctions, no matter how big or small the case, ranging from simple Municipal Ordinance violations, like an “Open Container” charge, to driving offenses, including D.U.I., to drug possession and trafficking cases, to violent offenses, including Battery, Assault, and Robbery, to Sex Crimes, to complicated “White Collar” offenses, like Racketeering and Fraud, all the way to 1st Degree and Capital Murders.
