Volusia County Sex Crime Defense Lawyer and Family Law Attorney
Our Approach is Summed Up by Our Motto
Our firm's motto is borrowed from the Batman film series: "I seek the means to fight injustice, to turn fear against those who prey on the fearful". Bruce Wayne
This motto resonates because Batman has no super powers. Instead, he relies on his wits, knowledge and preparation. When you need assistance in fighting the good fight against police officers and prosecutors who may fail to safeguard your rights, we will be there.
An Experienced Trial Attorney and Aggressive Advocate
Few criminal and family lawyers in the DeLand area can match the varied experience of the Law Office of Tammy Jaques, P.A.
For several years, Ms. Jaques served as a probation officer. Following this position she worked as a prosecutor handling the most serious of cases at both the appellate and trial level. After years of service in the prosecutor's office, Ms. Jaques left prosecution work and ventured to the other side, that of criminal defense. Ms. Jaques' personal situation is unique. She is married to a police officer that serves as a Sergeant for the Investigative Division as well as a member of the SWAT team. While the pair used to work on the same side, they now find themselves on opposite sides of the law. When asked how she was able to make that change from being a fierce prosecutor to defense attorney, she insists that her job is the same: to ensure that others follow the law. The difference is, now she makes sure that the police officers, the prosecutors, and the judges follow the laws.
Gaining the Experience Needed to Ensure a Fair Trial and Effective Defense
No amount of diligence can compensate for lack of experience. Ms. Jaques is committed to aggressive advocacy and brings unparalleled qualifications to your case:
- She was the lead felony trial attorney in the DeLand State Attorney's Office.
