In his professional career, Jason has experience as an executive, a director of business development, a director of operations, a business consultant, a sales representative, a retail manager, and an accounting technician. After working as an Accounting Technician at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jason accepted a business consulting position with one of the nation’s largest non-profit animal-related organizations. In short order, Jason was promoted through various positions, ultimately becoming the highest ranking employee of a multi-million dollar corporation. In this role, Jason managed dozens of employees including a call center, a marketing department, an information technology department, and a sales department. Jason negotiated partnerships with multi-national corporations, managed the creation, launch, and distribution of several successful products, and contributed to a national effort to standardize microchip technology.
It was these experiences that inspired Jason to attend law school. His regular interactions with lawyers and law firms exposed him to a gaping hole in the legal community. He found that most business lawyers were great at identifying legal risks and restating the law, but only had a superficial understanding of the intricacies of the business world. A lawyer with deep business experience in marketing, operations, and sales would be better suited to serve the legal needs of business clients. A business-person turned lawyer can provide expert legal advice in the context of the client’s business. A lawyer with hands on experience can more effectively understand the difficult issues that face business owners. This is what Jason Miller and Miller & Monroe bring to the table.
