  • Travis David Stearns

    Jason is one of the top legal minds in Washington. He has a deep understanding of the law and works diligently on behalf of his clients. His strengths extend to trial and appellate work. I have had the pleasure of attending arguments that he has had in the Washington Supreme Court and have always been impressed.

  • Sharon Jean Blackford

    Jason is an excellent attorney. I worked with Jason for six and a half years at the Washington Appellate Project; during that time, I came to rely on Jason's in-depth knowledge of the law, his ability to analyze difficult issues, and his sound judgment. Jason communicates honestly and effectively with everyone, from Supreme Court Justices to incarcerated clients. In the years since we worked together, I have continued to consult Jason on professional matters and his advice has been of great value to me.I have great respect for Jason and endorse him wholeheartedly.
