Jamie Ross is a former defense attorney who became an Assistant district attorney on Law & Order from 1996 to 1998.

All that is known about Ross' early life is that she grew up with four brothers. She attended Columbia University, although whether she went to law school there or only received her undergraduate degree from that school is uncertain. Ross was married to fellow attorney Neil Gorton and has a young daughter named Katie.

Ross spent five years working as a criminal defense attorney, with her husband's firm, Gordon and Steinhart. She was an excellent defense attorney, getting acquittals in 7 out of 8 homicide cases she argued. Ross left her husband's firm to join the DA's office as an ADA. Although McCoy vehemently opposed it at first, after only six months, she began working closely with him at Adam Schiff's insistence. She soon developed an amicable relationship with McCoy.

After her marriage ended she was forced to fight for custody of her daughter and quit for a job with more flexible hours (L&O: "Turnaround", "Showtime"). She became a defense attorney once more and actually went up against McCoy twice.

She was in favor of the death penalty (L&O: "Causa Mortis") but is not in favor of the death penalty anymore (L&O: "Justice").
