Jansen has dedicated his professional life to representing individuals navigate the complex legal system that is a part of everyday life. He is committed to seeking full compensation and justice for his valued clients through a combination of authoritative legal knowledge, diligence for the task at hand, and a determination to see justice afforded to those who would otherwise be denied legal satisfaction. Jansen has an uncompromising "clients-first" approach in handling the cases that he tackles

If you're seeking Jansen's counsel, chances are good that you or a loved one are navigating very difficult circumstances. With this in mind, Jansen treats each case as distinct; both because the details of no two cases are alike, but also because he realizes that your situation requires a level of commitment equal to the wrongs you have faced or the difficult circumstances that you are experiencing. Our solemn promise to you is that we will never treat your case as anything less than the matter of grave importance that it is, and Jansen will fight to secure your case the outcome it deserves.

Jansen’s career in law didn’t start in law school. Prior to attending law school, Jansen served as a Deputy Circuit Clerk with the Pearl River County Circuit Clerk’s Office from 2011 to 2015 where he worked closely with attorneys, judges, and citizens to ensure that the court system moved efficiently. He then went on to serve as Chief Deputy Chancery Clerk in Pearl River County in 2016 before leaving to attend law school.

Jansen received his B.A. in political science, with honors, from the University of Southern Mississippi. He then enrolled at Tulane University Law School and earned his juris doctorate degree in 2019. While at Tulane, Jansen served as the Managing and Symposium editor of the Tulane Law Review, as a student attorney with the Tulane Criminal Justice Clinic, and as a student prosecutor with the District Attorney’s Office for Mississippi’s 2nd Circuit Court District in Gulfport and Bay St. Louis. In 2017, Jansen began a two year stint with the County and Youth Court of Pearl River County, where he served as a law clerk to the sitting trial court judge.  

In 2019, Jansen was elected to the Mississippi House of Representatives, representing the citizens of Pearl River and Lamar Counties. As the youngest serving member of the Mississippi Legislature, Jansen serves on the House Judiciary B, Agriculture, Transportation, County Affairs, and the Youth and Family Affairs Committees.

Jansen is currently the appointed Municipal Court Public Defender for the City of Poplarville and the Public Defender for Lunacy Court in Pearl River County, Mississippi. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Mississippi Bar Association, the Pearl River County Bar Association, and the Federalist Society. He’s admitted to all state and federal courts in the state of Mississippi and is ready to fight for you.
