  • Eric Todd Fingerhut

    Jason is one of the best litigators I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has great instincts, loves case strategy and is methodical and passionate about his craft. He is highly successful as well. In the four plus years we worked together at Howrey he never lost a case. He is a tireless worker, a loyal colleague and a man of significant integrity. He also has a really funny sense of humor.
