About Jesse Haskins
Jesse loves food. Food books like The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan inspired him to hang his virtual shingle to support local food systems. These books show the importance of truth and reputation in building more sustainable food systems. Now, Jesse dedicates his practice to sustainable agriculture, and to all those who seek truth. Jesse’s dedication fuels what his clients recognize as “great industry insight” and “prompt follow through.” In his six years as a government attorney, Jesse represented the State of Florida in matters of reputation and food policy. As assistant attorney general for the State of Florida, Jesse fought to remove false liens filed against judges, state officers, and employees. Jesse also served as assistant general counsel for the Florida Department of Financial Services, where he handled matters relating to workers’ compensation compliance and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). His experience representing the government puts Jesse’s clients in a strong position to flourish in spite of government regulations, to manage risks, to thrive, and to fight for truth.
His favorite ingredient is tahini.
