Prior to law school he graduated with honors and awards from University of California, Santa Barbara. While in Santa Barbara his interest in the law manifested following volunteer work for California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc. – a non-profit program that provides free legal service to California’s rural poor. He now has a diverse practice focusing on areas such as business law, commercial litigation, construction, employment, entertainment and intellectual property.
Since 2005, Jason has formed and/or reorganized nearly 100 businesses, processed dozens of trademarks and obtained numerous favorable results – whether plaintiff or defense – given he has helped clients recover nearly $30,000,000 and avert millions more. In 2012 Jason received the "40 Under 40 Award" by Sacramento Business Journal and in 2013 was selected as a "Northern California Rising Star" by Superlawyers Magazine.
