    Jason is very knowledgeable, not just in regards to the law, but also with all aspects of the criminal system. He is at home in the courtroom.

    I have had the opportunity to see Mr. Reid fight for his clients when I was a prosecutor assigned against him. I can honestly say that he works very hard for all of his clients. Anyone would be lucky to have Mr. Reid in their corner.
