About Me


Jason Lee Van Dyke, son of Daniel and Susan, grew up in the Detroit-area suburb of Troy, Michigan.  In his early life he was active in the Boy Scouts (earning the rank of Eagle Scout in 1995) and as a trombone and baritone player in his school bands.  He graduated from Lutheran High School Northwest in 1998 and matriculated to Michigan State University later that year.  At Michigan State University he became well known for political activism, and during the middle of his junior year, transferred to the University of Dallas.  Majoring in Politics, he was a member of the University of Dallas moot court team and was the editor of a student newspaper.  He graduated with a bachelor of arts in December of 2003.


 


Mr. Van Dyke attended law school at Stetson University College of Law starting in the spring of 2004.  At Stetson, he was highly involved in Stetson’s world renowned trial advocacy program and, at graduation, was one of only a handful of students to be awarded the school’s certificate of concentration in advocacy.  As assisted many local attorneys in the drafting of pleadings, motions, and written discovery as a law clerk during his second and third years.  Additionally, he was an active volunteer in the Pinellas County Teen Court program serving as an advisor and judge on many occasions.  For his service to Pinellas County’s Teen Court he was awarded Stetson’s William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award when he obtained his Juris Doctor in December of 2006.


 


Being one of only a few students who took the bar exam before graduating from law school, Mr. Van Dyke was admitted to practice law in Texas in February of 2007 and began work for a Dallas-based factoring company (Langbert Financial, Inc.) serving as its general counsel until November of 2009.  At that time, he became general counsel for a Plano debt collection agency, Haller, Harlan & Taylor, where he remained until April of 2011.  Mr. Van Dyke is now in private practices and focuses primarily on commercial litigation, credit repair, and criminal defense.  In addition to the States of Texas and Colorado, Mr. Van Dyke is licensed to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, the U.S District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western districts of Texas, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.


 


Mr. Van Dyke lives in Crossroads, Texas, is thirty four years of age, has no children, and is not married.  Outside the practice of law he enjoys competitive shooting, hunting, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, smoking cigars, and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle.  He is a member of the Treasurer of the alumni housing corporation of the Delta Phi chapter of Theta Chi fraternity.
