Jason Cerbone

Attorney in Savannah, GA
The Oxfords shined. The power suit tailored. The man slim, strong and professional. His name? Jason Cerbone. Standing before the testifying police officer, Jason looked the part: a winning attorney. More importantly, he acted like one. After all, this was cross-examination: Jason's specialty. Since Jason knew the arrest procedure hadn't been followed in this DUI arrest, he needed to get the officer to admit it. But that's never easy. So patiently, persistently, Jason played a game of cat-and-mouse. In question after question, he calmly brought the policeman toward the goal. And within minutes, the officer admitted his violation without even realizing it! That's the power of cross-examination. It's the difference between winning and losing a DUI case, between acquittal and conviction. The policeman may have never known he destroyed the prosecution's case, but the judge certainly did. And when Jason motioned Judge Gnaan to dismiss the DUI charges against Marty King, the judge complied. Yet another case. Yet another win. Even as a child, Jason dreamed of becoming the first-class trial lawyer he is today. The challenge was in realizing that dream. So Jason started early. With a lawyer father, a court-reporter mother, and a District Attorney uncle, Jason has always had Law in his blood. But natural ability was never enough for Jason Cerbone. He sought excellence. Even as a kid, Jason would accompany his father to criminal court. Listening carefully, he learned all he could about the art of courtroom success. In this time, Jason learned a valuable lesson: clients have to feel as if they are part of their own success. A client's happiness is of utmost importance, especially in DUI cases. That's why Jason treats his clients as friends, not just business contacts. Because when you're working for a friend, Jason says, it's even more exhilarating to beat those DUI charges. After graduating from Benedictine Military School, Jason went to the University of Georgia where he majored in criminal justice and political science. There, he was named a Presidential Scholar and received Deans List recognition for his studies. In 2006, he graduated from Mississippi College School of Law and has been practicing criminal law, specializing in DUI cases, ever since. Some attorneys ease into practice; Jason jumped in headlong. Within his first seven months, he had handled nearly 70 criminal law cases, all of them felonies. He also achieved a major win in a high-profile rape trial. As an integral part of the criminal defense team, Jason learned the power of an aggressive defense when he and his partners succeeded in pulling off a hung jury, even though the odds were stacked against them. Jason has never stopped learning. Early on, he worked for Terry Jackson and Michael Schiavone. Later, he worked for the Eastern Judicial Circuit Public Defender Office. There, Jason trained with Michael Edwards, whom he describes as among the most talented criminal lawyers he has ever seen. He also worked at Brooks Law Firm and Calhoun, Cerbone & Sapp. Dedicating himself, Jason worked to master advanced techniques in cross-examination. Jason has amassed countless wins in his time as a top-ranked criminal lawyer. He knows firsthand that the expert criminal attorney the one willing to lay it all on the line can expect to beat even the most intimidating criminal charges. Take Steven A., who both stayed out of jail and kept his driving privileges after Jason achieved dismissals in 7 out of 10 misdemeanor charges! Or look at another client whose public indecency charge could have sent him back to prison had Jason not fought to have it dismissed for lack of probable cause. Or take the domestic battery charge that Jason convinced a judge to dismiss in Garden City. Or think of the criminal trespassing charge that was promptly dismissed after one of Jason's expert defenses. This is the kind of thing that Jason Cerbone has accomplished time and time again in his career. It's also the kind of thing Jason can and will do for you. All in all, Jason's commitment to a client's defense is wholly unparalleled. You will that kind of commitment anywhere else. Diligently, Jason Cerbone is ever working to master the most cutting edge trial techniques, especially those that achieve success in Georgia DUI cases. But most of all, Jason is simply determined beyond all measure. He will move heaven and earth to win for his clients. That's what they deserve, so that's what he delivers. High School Diploma, Benedictine Military School, 1997.

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

    Anonymity

    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
