As a result, Jesse has been able to identify fraudulent or improper conduct and move swiftly to file suit on behalf of individuals and corporations to protect and recover significant investments that were deemed lost or diminished.

Education & Experience

Jesse earned his Bachelor of Accountancy and Juris Doctorate from the University of Mississippi. He was decorated with numerous accolades and awards for his academic leadership and play on the Rebel football team. After graduating from Ole Miss, Jesse signed and played as a defensive end for the Baltimore Ravens before injuries sidelined his football career and sent him on his path to law school.

After graduating from law school, Jesse was offered positions with two of the most successful plaintiff firms in the country. However, Jesse decided to take a different route which has ultimately brought him full-circle back to a practice that is primarily focused on representing plaintiffs.

Jesse began his legal career at one of the largest and most prestigious defense firms in the Southeast: Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz. As a lawyer in Baker Donelson's litigation sector, Jesse learned under and litigated with several of the most respected litigators in the South. This experience was invaluable, and Jesse credits his time at Baker Donelson to much of his success.
