“I didn’t think it could ever happen to me...I’m glad Jared was there when it did.”
- Neil Magny, UFC Top Contender

Jared is a lawyer who doesn’t measure the value of people in 6 minute intervals of time.  As a client you have his cell phone number and he speaks with you when you call at night or over the weekends.  He doesn’t charge you for travel time, when he takes you to lunch, or anything else that doesn’t require the truest work of an attorney.  Jared invests in long term relationships with his clients and measures the value of his services the same way they do.

Jared is an attorney with the SJJ Law Firm focused on litigating the many intricacies of insurance, business, contracts and government regulatory matters as he currently represents clients in opposition with various insurance companies, businesses, and governments.  
“Jared is in the top 1% of lawyers I have had in my courtroom.”
- Judge Carlos Rodrigues

“It’s simple, without Jared, I would no longer be in business.”
- Coach Chris McLeod

Jared realized his enthusiasm for the courtroom at university, as president of the college’s allocation committee while successfully arguing against other colleges before the Senate.  While in law school, Jared became able to practice as a lawyer when he was admitted into a selective program.  Before graduating law school, he had already completed many adversarial hearings on behalf of his clients.  He made the Dean’s List and received a best advocate award for moot court. 

“He handled everything so politely with them until it was the right time to be aggressive.”
- David Berkowitz

Jared has worked as an Assistant Public Defender in South Florida.  Relentlessly advocating for his clients through all manner of hearings, motions and trials, Jared has helped hundreds of people go back to where they belong- home with their families.  He has been a lead and partner trial-attorney in all levels of felony, misdemeanor and juvenile felony offenses and moved forward with those experiences into litigating civil matters.   
Jared came into the civil practice of law armed with lessons and skills stemming from the representation of people perpetually in danger of losing their liberty, freedom, and the respect of their community.  Over time, his civil client list has included

  • Darden Restaurants
  • Amerisure Insurance 
  • T.H.E. Ins. Comp.
  • Peninsula Ins. Comp. 
  • Gallagher Basset Ins.
  • Citizens Insurance

Whether it’s as a defense attorney or as a plaintiffs’ one, Jared is with SJJ Law to more exclusively pursue claims against insurance companies.
Theoretically, the insurance company was designed to reimburse, protect and bring an injured person/business back to where they were before they were injured and/or before something they owned was destroyed.  This does not always occur.  The mainstay of Jared’s legal practice is representing people and businesses who have been, or may be, treated unjustly by the insurance company.  Insurance law can be complicated and bring forth an array of difficulties, aggressive defense attorneys and disagreeable insurance company employees.  You deserve to be treated fairly by a insurance company and it is not unreasonable to expect them to always do the right thing.  Jared dedicates his abilities, personal growth, and time, to ensure they do.  SJJ Law Firm- finally, lawyers who gets it! 
Jared currently dedicates his free time to be with family, to help people within the community fairly receive an access to justice, and he has spent most of his life teaching and training in combative sports.
