Jacksonville, in Onslow County, is the principle city of the Jacksonville metropolitan area. The average age in Jacksonville is the lowest of any city in the United States: 22.9 years old and over 1/3rd of its population is between the ages of 18 to 24. The young population can be attributed largely to the location of several marine branches located in the city. The bases may also be the reason why there are about 70% more males than females in Jacksonville.
Lawyers in Jacksonville can be found in many fields of law. Jacksonville attorneys are familiar with divorce law, criminal defense, DUI/DWI, personal injury, bankruptcy, criminal law, family law, wills & trusts and many other fields. It is important that a Jacksonville resident pairs themselves with an attorney who is qualified in their field.
