Adams and Reese LLP
Jamie W. Olinto joined Adams and Reese in 2013 as an Associate following the firm’s expansion into Jacksonville. Practicing law since 2010, she focuses her practices in the areas of business and commercial litigation, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights.
Jamie represents banks and financial institutions, creditors in bankruptcy cases, medical providers in litigation issues, and employers in civil theft, breaches of non-compete agreements, and related causes of action.
Jamie’s legal achievements and representative experience include:
In 2010, Jamie obtained her J.D., cum laude, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where she received awards for receiving the highest grade in her Tort and Advanced Bankruptcy classes and externed for Judge Glenn, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Middle District of Florida. She was also selected to The Order of the Coif, an honorary scholastic society that invites law students in the top 10 percent of their graduating class. Jamie received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, cum laude, from the University of Florida, in 2006, where she was active in student government and a member of Florida Blue Key.
In the community, Jamie serves as the Governance Chair of the Board of Directors of Girls Inc. of Jacksonville, following her membership in the inaugural class of Girls Inc. Rising Leader Society, an organization established to serve as an auxiliary branch to the Board. Nationwide, Girls Inc. offers programs on science, math and technology, health, economic and financial literacy, sports skills, leadership and advocacy for girls ages 5 to 18 years old throughout the United States and Canada. Jamie is also an active member of the Jacksonville Bankruptcy Bar Association and the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation.
Among the people Jamie admires are people who find a way to meld their passion in life with their work so that work becomes more of a hobby than a "job." Jamie said she has seen many examples of this in the legal profession, as well as in many of her clients who have started their own companies. A great public example is Steve Jobs – as he said, "Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life."
