Jason Ingraham obtained his undergraduate degree from Emory University in 1999. He worked in the legal field as a clerk until law school and then attended Georgia State University College of Law in downtown Atlanta. While at Georgia State, Jason was honored to be a recipient of the Governor’s Intern scholarship for a summer internship after his first year of law school. After his second year, Jason received a scholarship from P.I.L.A., Georgia State’s Public Interest Law Association, to work for the Legal Aid Society in the Manhattan Family Court in New York, New York. During his third year of law school he was elected to serve as the president of P.I.L.A. and served for a year in that position.
After graduating from law school in 2004, Jason dedicated his career to criminal defense. He started off as a public defender in Fulton County in the largest public defender’s office in Georgia. He remained a Fulton public defender until 2007 when there was an opening in the DeKalb County public defender’s office. In DeKalb County he represented people in both state court and superior court, gaining experience with both misdemeanors and felonies. Jason has represented people who were charged with a wide variety of crimes from loitering, shoplifting and DUI to murder, rape and arson. No matter what the charge, he has used his legal skills to help people out any way that he can. Whether it is having a jury trial, or getting the best possible plea deal, Jason prepared hundreds of cases in state court and hundreds more in superior court.
Jury trials are the most complex and intense aspect of the legal system. It requires skillfully navigating the courtroom to show that a client is innocent. Jason’s trial experience sets him apart from many other lawyers. His first trial was an Armed Robbery case in which his client was wrongly charged with using a gun to steal from a gas station. His client was acquitted after he convinced the jury that it was not his client who was robbing the store on video. This was a case where the client was facing the possibility of a life sentence, but was released because he had a lawyer he could trust. Jason went on to have jury trials in several more armed robbery cases, drug cases, domestic violence cases, as well as property cases such as theft, burglary and criminal damage to property.
Now in private practice, Jason has taken all of that experience and has fine-tuned it to represent a select number of clients. As a public defender, Jason routinely had case loads of two hundred to three hundred open cases. Now, he is able to take a smaller number of cases and focus more attention on each client and their specific case. He believes that personal attention to clients and their cases is the necessary foundation for the successful representation of anyone charged with a crime.
It is this level of personal attention and commitment to each case that sets The Ingraham Law Firm apart. Your case is the most important thing on your mind, it should be important to your attorney too.
