Jesse Okiror is the 2017 Vice-President of the J.L. Turner Legal Association, and the founder of a software startup that has developed a pioneering practice management tool for lawyers and law firms. Operating in stealth mode while it builds on its initial innovation and perfects its product, Jesse’s company will launch publicly in Spring 2018.
Before starting his company, Jesse worked for Bell Nunnally & Martin LLP and Brewer Attorneys & Counselors. At those firms, Jesse represented Fortune 500 corporations, small businesses, startups, high net worth individuals, and professionals in complex commercial litigation. Jesse’s clients spanned all industries across the globe, including technology companies, manufacturers, retailers, contractors, telecommunications providers, insurers and hospitality providers.
Jesse has also devoted significant time to pro bono cases, particularly disputes involving significant public policy issues. For example, in 2014, Jesse represented a group of minority voters seeking fair representation on their local school board under the Voting Rights Act, in a case filed in the Northern District of Texas. As lead counsel for the plaintiffs, Jesse obtained a highly-publicized judgment for his clients. Shortly after, Texas Lawyer recognized Jesse as its “Litigator of the Week,” based on his successful representation in the complex case involving issues of both local and national importance.
Jesse is a 2008 graduate of the George Washington University Law School.
