SOLUTION FOCUSED LEGAL THINKING

The firm’s founding partners, all classmates at the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University, came from successful, thriving practices. But we wanted more.

Jones, Steele & Booth, (JSB) was founded on the belief that there is a better way. There is a better way to approach clients, a better way to manage cases and  a better way to maximize results.

Our lawyers have successfully defended clients in court and out-of-court. Careful preparation, creative critical thinking, employing the most up-to-date technology available in the legal field, and expert execution of legal strategies are the hallmarks of our attorneys’ approach to practicing law.

This approach embodies JSB’s founding principal: There is a better way to get better results. With that goal in mind, JSB strives daily to advance every facet of our practice. We are proud of the results that we have reached for our clients and plan on continuing our record of success. At JSB every day is a good day to find a better way.
