About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.

After graduating from Colby College, Jason attended University of Maine School of Law in Portland where he graduated cum laude. During law school, Jason gained experience representing large corporations such as Bath Iron Works at the firm of Monaghan Leahy in Portland. He also completed an internship for the Kennebec County District Attorney’s office. After law school, Jason worked in the Appellate Division of Unum Insurance Company. In 2001, Jason left Unum for private practice and he has been representing Maine people ever since.

After joining private practice, Jason trained under his father, former attorney and current Maine Supreme Court Justice Joseph Jabar and former law partner and current Maine Superior Court Justice Michaela Murphy. Jason currently serves on the Board of Governors for the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Jason has handled hundreds of cases, including 2 criminal homicide cases. He has fought in over one hundred contested trials, including several jury trials. In Jason’s first personal injury jury trial, he obtained a $ 148,000 jury verdict for his injured client after a 4-day trial. In that case, the opposing insurance company offered nothing to settle. Jason has also obtained Court Judgments of $406,000, $311,000, and $175,000 for his clients, both in cases where the opposing party offered nothing to settle.

Jason recently defeated Aetna’s New York City lawyers in a hard fought battle in Federal Court to reinstate his client’s long term disability benefits. In January, 2013, Jason was given the prestigious “Top 40 Under 40” label at the National Trial Lawyers Association Summit in Miami. Jason has helped his clients recover over 10 million dollars in settlements and judgments for their injuries, and he is experienced in both state and federal courts. He has experience in various types of litigation with focus on personal injury law. Because of his strong experience and reputation in personal injury law, other Maine attorneys regularly refer personal injury cases to Jason.

Highly Recommended!
Jason took the time to meet with me regarding my accident, listened to what I had to say, and assisted with little to no effort on my part. He and his team kept me updated throughout the process and set realistic expectations.

Forget Joe, attorney Jason Jabar is the only call you need to make.
One true measure of satisfaction of a product or service is the question would I buy / use it again? Attorney Jason Jabar? ABSOLUTELY!! When the work began, we worked with Jason's Paralegal, Vickie. Vickie routinely demonstrated both skill and compassion during this phase of the “process”. Vickie quickly established an environment of confidence by her availability and timely response to any inquiry. Jason followed up with routine availability to answer any question and address any concern that we had. And it was not in industry speak, all explained in layman terms. Throughout the process we felt extremely confident that we were in good hands. Highly recommended. If any legal service is required for us in the future, Jason Jabar will be the first and only phone call that we will make. Thank you Jason, thank you Vickie!!

Professional and Knowledgeable as well as kind from start to finish
After I was involved in a car accident last May I was scattered and overwhelmed and a mess. From the first meeting with Jason I knew that he was not only knowledgeable but driven. He was up front with cost and expectations in how he would work with me on my case. Jason clearly communicated with me while he was working on my case and when challenges came up he went after them and got me exactly what I felt my case was worth...almost to the dollar. With that being said he was also honest when I came in a bit high on what I was asking and clearly stated with his experience with my kind of case what it would be worth. I think that is so important while working with an attorney as that cuts down the time that you are waiting to get it resolved. Jason is a kind and soft spoken confident man who carries himself in a professional manner. Some attorney's present with a "used car salesman" kind of vibe. That to me is obnoxious and usually means that trust is lost right away and at least for me when I see attorney's like that on TV or reporting on something....it's an instant eye roll and thinking that they just want to get as much out of me as they can, not for me. Regardless of what kind of need you have for an attorney this is the one that you want to work with. I am a strong personality and at times was very naggy with Jason and impatient as things in my personal life were chaotic and that spilled over into our conversations. He was always direct as well as respectful and very patient with me. Lastly...the staff that is supporting an attorney I feel is equally as important as they are the ones on the front lines and can really set the tone when there are clerical things that come up. Jason's paralegal was SUCH a hard worker. My paperwork was flooding in and needing to go out for demands etc around the Christmas season and when she was also on vacation. She came back and took many of my calls and emails and stayed on top of her part of it so that Jason had what he needed to be able to move my case forward. Communication was always prompt and informative...usually she responded to me within a few hours via email and at most a day with my phone calls. The front office staff was also very helpful when I came in to sign documents and always had paperwork ready for me, a smile on their face and I felt cared for while things were very stressful in my life. The Waterville office is beautiful and in a historic building...almost feels like you are walking into a room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The waiting area is comfortable and just the right size to feel intimate and professional. When we need the assistance of an attorney we want to feel like we have a team behind us and that is EXACTLY how I felt from start to finish. Choose attorney Jason Jaber and you will feel that same support through the legal challenge you are going through.

Motorcycle accident with personal injury
Jason was very attentive to our son after his accident. He met us at the hospital and many times at our home. He formed a bond with all of us...he worked diligently for two years, fought on my son's behalf and was able to get us a worthy settlement without going to court. We greatly appreciate all Jason has done for our family during this most difficult time.

Automobile accident with personal injury
Having worked in the legal field for many years, I have worked with many attorneys and their staff in varying situations. I was very happy with all aspects of Attorney Jabar's service. He even came to our home to meet with us when I was recovering and couldn't leave the house. He was very straight forward and open, and he and his staff always respond to my questions and inquiries fully and quickly. I am very satisfied with the settlement I received and would highly recommend Jason to anyone.

A beast
Our case never reached a courtroom. Mr. Jabar fought and rejected unacceptable settlement offers with facts and case law, resulting in the fair, favorable settlement we were entitled to.

Excellent Lawyer
Jason was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. He was able to get me a great settlement, more than expected! Always kept me in the loop and up to date on the progress of the case. He is truly a hard working, excellent lawyer.

Professional and more important, a decent human being
Jason helped me with a settlement after a truck ran a red light and totaled my SUV. He was honest and fair, and definitely worked at getting me the best settlement possible while still keeping my expectations real. I feel that I received a fair amount and I would not have gotten that without Jason and his talented team. Being able to pay off my medical bills and replace my SUV meant a lot to my family and me.

Sensitive and very helpful
I was the victim of a hit-and-run driver with multiple physical injuries. Jason worked closely with me to ensure I received the full settlement from my insurance company to which I was entitled. He was knowledgeable, diligent and a great communicator. I recommend him very highly.

Above and beyond
Jason represented me in a very difficult case in which he was making life changing decisions for me and my family almost weekly. He negotiated obstacles in our way with extensive research and proven knowledge. He went above and beyond the call of duty. Do not for one second hesitate to have him represent you. It was the best decision I ever made.

Excellent experience
I was t-boned at an intersection, totaling my car. Left with wrist and ear injuries and mounting bills, I turned to Jason for help. He was very thorough and explained the process every step of the way. No question was too simple for me to ask, and they were answered and explained in a timely manner. I recommend Jason to anyone that is looking for a competent attorney.

Wrongful Death Case-Motor Vehicle
Jason Jabar was very motivated to get things done. He took on a very complicated situation that lasted almost 2 years with no money down. He prepared and mailed all necessary documents, while communicating with special courts out of state. Just to give you an idea of the complications the police report implicated the pedestrian was at fault and the driver did nothing wrong. Even after that he remained positive and discovered key factors that could not be denied. He always returned my calls or emails asap or by the end of the day guaranteed. Jason Jabar is a excellent lawyer.

Relationship: Co-worker
"I endorse this lawyer. I have practiced law in the same community as Jason since he started his career. Two years ago, I was honored when I was invited to become a partner in his firm. I have watched Jason win verdicts and settlements in cases that most lawyers wouldn't take due to complexity, difficult proof or questionable liability. Jason wins these cases on a regular basis. He is most certainly one of the best personal injury attorneys in the state and a lawyer that won't back down when the insurance carriers dig in their heals."
Personal injury Attorney | Jun 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've had many cases against Jason over the years, and I also have served as a mediator in cases where Jason is representing an injured Mainer. His ability to think on his feet in any circumstance, his attention to detail, and his tireless work ethic allow him to obtain results that other attorneys simply cannot achieve."
