Edward D. Jointer
Ed Jointer brings real-world experience and understanding for his clients at Quinones and Associates, PLLC. He uses his unique perspective and background in the handling of complex criminal and corporate cases.
Born on the South Side of Chicago, Ed is a gun-violence survivor who was shot while standing outside his Chicago-area high school. Even after losing his mother at a young age, Ed managed to put himself through California State University, San Bernardino, all while raising a younger sibling.
Ed went on to earn his Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law, which is where he met Quinones & Associates founder Letitia Quinones-Hollins. He began his legal career as an intern with Quinones & Associates, where he has since become an Associate Attorney.
Ed has a passion for trial work, and it shows. His filings have been praised for their quality and thoroughness, so much so that one federal judge used one of Mr. Jointer’s sentencing memorandums as a bench-brief example in his courtroom.
Mr. Jointer currently serves as the board president for the Collective Action for Youth, formerly known as the Harris County Youth Collective, an organization dedicated to helping juveniles who are in both foster care and the juvenile justice system. He is also a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
