B. Elaine Jones
B. Elaine Jones is a native Floridian, born and raised in the Tampa Bay Area. She has over 26 years of experience in the legal profession. What sets Elaine apart from other lawyers is her absolute love of the law. She has a proven track record and is a self-motivated, driven and extremely competent litigator who wins for the client with compassionate, accurate and zealous representation.
Elaine having earned an Associate degree as a legal assistant, worked in a Tampa law firm as a paralegal for four years before deciding to go to law school. That experience has given her the passion and confidence in her chosen career.
After practicing successfully as a solo practitioner and owner of her own law firm for 25 years in the Tampa Bay area concentrating primarily on marital/family law, Elaine moved to the Jacksonville area in late 2020 taking a position at local law firm doing guardianship and family law. Elaine joined Kenny Leigh & Associates in December of 2021. Now she doesn’t worry about the business side of running a law firm, which frees up her time so she can devote it to attending to clients and their needs, putting them first and foremost.
Elaine is happily married and enjoys spending time with her spouse and their four-legged fur baby. She is an avid sports buff enjoying baseball, football and basketball and easily could have been a sports announcer with the knowledge she has about sports. Elaine loves sports, and particularly baseball and she is an avid Tampa Bay Ray fan. Prior to relocating to Jacksonville, she was attending at least 50 games a year. Elaine has coached little league baseball and softball and enjoys teaching kids the game. Elaine also loves walking the dog and taking long walks on the beach. She plays golf when she can and loves all genres of music.
Elaine’s clients were predominantly men, even before she began working for the “Men Only Law Firm”. Elaine has long believed that men do not get treated equally when it comes to family law matters and is proud to work for a firm that recognizes this. Her clients credit her with incredible personal attention and a “Can Do” spirit with a full grasp of the ins and outs of the law. She truly is a gifted attorney who puts the client first and has earned the respect of opposing attorneys and Judges in the courtroom. Martindale-Hubbell which is a website that rates attorneys based on the opinions of other attorneys and Judges has rated B. Elaine Jones as AV preeminent which is the highest ranking that can be achieved. Elaine’s joining Kenny Leigh & Associates with her vast experience and background in family law, makes her a valuable asset to the firm.
