JACKSONVILLE, FL—Jimerson Birr is pleased to announce that Ponte Vedra-based real estate attorney Hunter Faulkner joined the firm as partner effective January 11, 2021 further expanding the capabilities of its Real Estate Development, Sales and Leasing Industry Team.
Faulkner focuses on representing buyers and sellers in contract negotiations for the acquisition, sale and finance of both residential and commercial real estate throughout Northeast Florida. His practice also includes land use law, estate planning and corporate law.
Jimerson Birr has successfully represented developers, investors, landowners, builders, lenders, property managers, commercial tenants, and other entities connected with the real estate sector since its founding in 2009. Beyond litigating matters related to real estate development, sales and leasing, the firm has completed hundreds of real estate transactions through the years. The addition of Faulkner signals the expansion of the firm’s services to include high-end residential closings.
For the last two years, Jimerson Birr has been recognized as one of the Best Law Firms in America in the area of Real Estate, and a number of the firm’s attorneys have individually received distinctions for the highest levels of professionalism and technical skill.
“The complexities of real estate transactions and litigation require experienced attorneys to ensure smooth closing,” said managing partner Charles B. Jimerson. “Adding Hunter’s expertise to our team will buttress our representation of clients involved in sophisticated real estate matters, whether commercial or residential. His military background helped him form a service-oriented mindset that enables him to push through challenges associated with large transactions and get the deal done under intense pressure. The breadth of Hunter’s will is often the determination of his clients’ success.”
A United States Navy Veteran, Faulkner earned his Juris Doctor with honors from the University of Miami after graduating summa cum laude from the University of North Florida in 2011 with a B.A. in Political Science and a Minor in History.

“With its well-rounded view of all economic and business factors that influence it, Jimerson Birr understands the real estate market like few other firms,” Faulkner said. “The opportunity to augment that perspective and build upon their existing reputation for excellence made great sense to me, and I look forward to growing my practice here.”
