Jamie Halscott, the Managing Partner at Halscott Megaro PA, focuses exclusively on criminal and civil appeals. Shortly after he began practicing law, Jaime couldn't help but notice that criminal defendants were at the mercy of a criminal justice system that often failed to protect their rights.
Whether the defendant was put in the way of a rogue prosecutor, a judge that failed to understand the law or a defense lawyer who failed to uphold their duties, Jaime knew that there had to be a way to seek justice. As a result, Jaime set out to change the lives of those who have already been convicted.
He quickly understood that most individuals who were trying to navigate the appellate process were at a tremendous disadvantage. As an appellate lawyer, Jaime dedicates his time to educating clients throughout the process of filing an appeal and providing the counsel that this clients deserve.
