Jason represented me for DUI diversion violation. Essentially I messed up big time and got a second whilst I was meant to behaving myself. Bonehead move on my part. He was able to handle both cases with a fair degree of ingenuity and achieve an outcome that allowed me to keep my employment and get on with my life. He tells it straight and provides all the information to enable you to improve your standing prior to Court. He is a great guy and kept my mind at ease which helped me immensely in getting through this.

Jason and his staff saved my life there are no words to describe the efforts of these people.. I can't imagine where I would be if it wasn't for them... I was screwing up my life with drugs and had gotten myself in a place where my life was going nowhere. Because of him, I got into treatment rather than going to prison and have since turned my life around... I have my son twice a week, live in a nice apartment and am going to meetings and treatment four days a week. I have a full time job and can afford to live.. I am finally looking at life and my future with optimism.. Thanks Jason I owe you everything....

When it comes to professionalism, you can rely on Jason Short
Always courteous, very attentive to details, sharp and well known in court
When I found out that Jason was a district attorney and then open its own practice as an attorney
it gave me a sense of " this guy knowns the inside out" of the justice system
I was right. He handle my case in two different county at once and thanks to Jason I did not spent a day in jail. Trust me, my wife is so happy to have me home every night. My regards to you Jason

After retiring and in the process of moving from Washington State to Oregon I had one of the most frightening experiences at the hands of our State Trooper’s. In an effort to minimize as much as possible the need for a moving van, I elected to drive my 2 seat very small car at least 1 to 2 times a week, retrieving anything I believed was of value to me. Upon my return on this last trip, and after being notified by our realtor that she intended on bringing people through the house that very weekend, I had a moral responsibility and a safety issue to remove as many firearms from my home in Washington State as possible.
What I didn’t know nor did I expect, was how the Oregon State Trooper’s would view this, although I followed the Oregon State’s law on how to transport firearms through the state, once stopped, they chose to slant everything as though I was a common criminal! This event caused me to seriously question law enforcement here in Oregon, and although I had served as a reserve police officer in the past and took an oath to serve, preserve and uphold the law, this was not being done!
Jason Short was recommended to me because he had successfully defended other clients who were unfairly accused of an unlawful firearm’s offense. I was charged with 2 counts, one involving my firearms, and the other was nothing more than a trumped-up charge that is too complex to detail here. To begin with, Jason’s opening statement was excellent, concise as he provided the truth about the events that lead to my being stopped, and then arrested. I couldn’t have asked for more!
During the trial the DA called 4 witnesses and I was the only witness for my defense. Jason calmly took apart each witnesses account of what occurred and flustered each one to the point where they would look over at the DA in fear that they may have answered incorrectly. He then questioned me about details, and the real events that would later exonerate me of all the charges. Even when I was cross examined, the truth and how Jason presented it in his closing statement is what each juror took with them while deliberating for 2 hours, not the exaggerated, embellished and otherwise lies the DA was trying to get them to believe.
I pray that I never find myself in this situation again! However, should the need arise, Jason Short who so eloquently and thoroughly presented my case in such detail all the while taking apart each of the DA’s witnesses account of what happened, I wouldn’t hesitate calling on Jason again for his superb work defending me.

Having to find a defense attorney is never a pleasant experience, but luckily I was able to find Short Law Group. I was looking at a measure 11 offence of attempted murder that was latter changed to two counts of assault in the second degree, but with the support and devotion given to my case by Mr. Short along those whom work beside him I was found not guilty of all charges at trial for reasons of self-defense. Never ones over the year that it took my case to go to trail did Mr. Short try to get me to take a plea bargain I didn’t want or did I ever feel work wasn’t being done. The time that was put into my case was way beyond what I paid for, communication never fell to the wayside, and Mr. Shorts knowledge and experience really shines through in the court room. It’s for these reasons and more I feel confident in recommending Short Law Group to anyone.

When you need a lawyer like your Dr. you want to trust them and hope they have your best interest at heart.......not Jason. Jason will say he has the connections and not to worry, everything will be fine. Well my situation did not turn out fine, in fact it turned out worse than we expected and it totally changed my life.

Jason put me at ease and i had the utmost confidence going in. I achieved through him the best possible outcome. He is easy to believe in and for good reason. His knowlege and skill is at a higher level, no fancy dan here, .. he is for real. his level of professionalism and courtesy served Me well. We went up againstand a skilled and hard working D.A., a professinal career officer that is a drug recognition expert, and achieved a verdict of not guilty on all counts. Worth the money at twice the cost.

Jason is very professional and I feel that he knows his way around the court room. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good lawyer and who wants the best possible outcome.

Dealing with legal issues can be very trying on a person and Jason helped me not to feel at ease about what was happening, he was even able to get me a better deal than we had originally talked about for my charges. Great guy, even better attorney.
