About the firm

JPA Law Firm, PLLC, is a law firm committed to being responsive, efficient, and effective to best serve its clients. The firm focuses its practice on the area of Family Law.

A Responsive Lawyer

Are you tired of hiring professionals who are never around when you have a question? As your attorney I will always be responsive to your needs and questions. You will not be kept in the dark when it comes to the progress of your legal case.

An Efficient Lawyer

It is my belief that the client should not have to pay for a professional's inefficiencies. Clients are paying for a service and not for an attorney to learn while on the job. While there is always a learning curve when it comes to the law, clients should not have to bear the brunt of the cost. As your attorney I will always work to serve you in the most efficient way possible.

An Effective Lawyer

At the end of the day, you want an attorney that is effective. Whether it is in negotiations or trials, clients need attorneys that are effective which means obtaining the results most sought by the client. In my opinion, that involves having the advocacy and negotiation skills necessary to convince others to see things your way. As your attorney I will be dedicated to doing the work necessary to achieve the most favorable results for you.
Bio
About Jesse Philippe-Auguste, Esq.
Mr. Jesse Philippe-Auguste, Esq., attended Salmon P. Chase College of Law. While at Chase, Jesse excelled in advocacy and achieved numerous accolades, most notably finishing as a top three finalist in the school's Moot Court competition for first-year law students, competing as a member of the Black Law Students Association Mock Trial Team, the National Mock Trial Team, and the National Moot Court Board. While competing with the National Mock Trial Team, his team finished among the top 10 law schools in the country in the prestigious South Texas College of Law Mock Trial Challenge.

While in law school, Jesse was very active. In addition to being a member of competition teams, he also held several leadership roles. He was twice voted by his peers to serve as Secretary of the Student Bar Association and President of the Black Law Student Association. Additionally, Jesse clerked with prestigious law firms, a Fortune 500 company, and was named to the Dean's List all while working part-time at the law school library. Finally, Jesse volunteered at the Uncontested Divorce Clinic, a program sponsored by Chase College of Law and the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati. There he assisted and represented those with low economic means with filing divorce.

Jesse demonstrated a knack for litigation long before law school. While in high school at Miami Killian Senior High School, Jesse took part in a mock trial during a legal oriented elective course. Jesse's interest in law continued when he attended Florida State University. While in college, Jesse was very active with Phi Alpha Delta, a Pre-Law fraternity, where he successfully competed in numerous Mock Trial competitions and served as Mock Trial Chair. When competing, Jesse won multiple "Best Attorney" awards and at a young age demonstrated strong advocacy skills.

As an attorney, Jesse has argued before courts in the 11th and 17th Circuits. He has also written appellate briefs for matters in the 2nd and 5th District Courts of Appeals.

Jesse can serve as a tremendous asset to clients. He brings a tireless work ethic and a strong desire to help others.
