Jamieson is recognized as a leader in the areas of land use and zoning, alcoholic beverage licensing, compliance and disciplinary actions, government relations, and business and personal-injury litigation, both for the defense and for the plaintiff. He is licensed to represent clients in California, Michigan and Wisconsin, and has extensive experience working with all sizes of companies, from Fortune 100 publicly-traded corporations to stand-alone businesses.

Mr. Jamieson is admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the U.S. Federal Claims Court, and the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Central and Southern Districts of California. He is also a member of the Intertribal Court of Southern California.

Mr. Jamieson is rated AV® Preeminent with Martindale-Hubbell; a designation reserved for lawyers of the highest legal ability and outstanding legal ethics. His peers have voted him one of Best Lawyers® in America and rated him 10/10 on AVVO. Mr. Jamieson has also been honored by SuperLawyer as the top 1% of lawyers in Land Use/Zoning for each of the last 15 years. The National Association of Licensing and Compliance Professionals (NALCP) has recognized and honored Mr. Jamieson for his ongoing and exceptional commitment to his clients, awarding him the Most Valuable Associate Member Award in 2018.


Mr. Jamieson is also an active thought leader in the legal community.

For over three decades, SSJLaw has prevailed in thousands of matters for its clients before Administrative Law Judges, ABC Appeals Boards, Superior Courts, Federal District Courts, Courts of Appeal, and the California State Supreme Court. Of particular note, SSJLaw obtained a unanimous decision by the California Supreme Court which determined that the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) violated the constitutionally-protected rights of alcoholic beverage retailers.
