James K. Jackson, J.D.
James “Jayme” Jackson was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and raised in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. Jayme is a third generation graduate of North Carolina State University (Bachelor of Arts Political Science - 1998) and thereafter attended law school at the Walter F. George School of Law (Juris Doctor - 2001) at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
While in high school and college Jayme participated in numerous varsity sports and amateur athletics. He also worked part-time including working the swing shift at his hometown paper mill over summers and Christmas breaks, work experience that has proven amazingly valuable in all areas of his life.
While in law school, Jayme worked with the personal injury and bankruptcy firm of Grist & Brock in Macon. He spent a summer interning with the Halifax County District Attorney’s Office and a summer interning as a summer associate with Bass, Bryant & Fanney in Raleigh. Upon graduation from law school in 2001, Jayme returned to Raleigh for good by taking a fulltime job with the general practice firm of Bass, Bryant & Fanney. Jayme has since spent his legal career in the Wake County Courthouse and courtrooms trying cases, brokering plea agreements and interacting with prosecutors, judges, witnesses and other lawyers.
After the retirement of BBF firm patriarch Gerald Bass, Jayme became a founding partner in the startup firm of Fanney & Jackson, P.C. At Fanney & Jackson Jayme and all the lawyers in the firm focused their representation solely on assisting people charged with crimes in Wake County, North Carolina, mostly Driving While Impaired (DWI). At Fanney & Jackson, Jayme learned the intricacies of trying Driving While Impaired cases. The experience has proven rewarding and very valuable as Jayme provides progressive, top-notch representation to those charged with Driving While Impaired.
Jayme traveled to Atlanta, Georgia in 2006 to become certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Training by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA). This is the same class many law enforcement officers take in order to become proficient in administering Field Sobriety Tests to suspected impaired drivers. Jayme regularly participates in similar Continuing Legal Education classes focused on criminal and DWI defense so that he can stay on the cutting edge of his field.
Jayme has almost entirely focused his practice since graduating from law school on representing criminal defendants charged in the greater Wake County area, including Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Fuqua-Varina, Holly Springs, Wake Forest, Rolesville, and Garner.
Jayme most enjoys the aspect of his law practice that allows him to help people who are troubled with conflict so that they can get through one of life’s more imposing hurdles. He enjoys meeting and spending time with his clients knowing that with the proper assistance better days are certainly ahead of them. He takes pride in making sure his clients are well-informed, and he always makes himself available to answer their questions and address their concerns.
Jayme currently serves as Pro Bono Legal Services Coordinator for the Healing Place of Wake County. In that role, Jayme provides legal services to clients of the Healing Place who have taken substantial steps to overcome addiction-related issues. The Healing Place of Wake County is a phenomenal community outreach to homeless Wake County citizens who are dealing with addiction and the problems it causes. Jayme also teaches classes at N.C. State for Southlight’s Alcohol and Drug Diversion program to educate college students about their legal rights, the dangers of addiction, and the lingering problems and harm associated with criminal legal trouble.
Jayme is excited to bring his years of trial and courtroom experience to Western Wake Law Group. Jayme initiated the startup of the Raleigh Office of Western Wake Law Group (link) on January 1, 2011.
Jayme is married with one son, Oliver. The Jacksons are members of First Presbyterian Church in Raleigh. Jayme most enjoys spending time with his wife and son, supporting N.C. State Wolfpack athletics (Go Pack!), hunting and fishing with family and friends, and visiting with family at Lake Gaston and Manteo, N.C.
