J. Gaines and the Soul Attorneys is a Canadian pop R&B band formed in 1994 in Quebec City as the Soul Attorneys, which at the time consisted of Jacques Gaines, Eric Filto and Mathieu Dandurand.

Active under their original moniker between 1995 and 1999, they achieved some success in Canada and abroad, touring with Celine Dion, signing with Sony Records,[1] and releasing two Canadian top-10 singles, "These Are the Days", "See The People", and "So They Say".

In 2000, after Eric Filto left the band, Jacques Gaines added his own name to the band's title, and released the commercially successful album Another Day, produced by Aldo Nova.

Jacques Gaines released a French-language, self-titled solo album in 2004, and a solo English-language album, Four, in 2007. The first single is "These Things". He currently lives in Quebec City, in charge of advertising at the Quebec circus school (l'École de Cirque de Québec).
