Attorney Jason Beardsley was born and raised in the Northeastern Corner of Pennsylvania. Prior to returning to practice law in his hometown of Montrose and the surrounding area, Jason was a McKelvey Scholar at Slippery Rock University located in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, and he attended Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in Cleveland, Ohio.

        While Jason has many characteristics that he values in himself, the characteristic he values most is his dedication to zealously—and relentlessly— fighting to make the law work for his clients.


During law school, Jason was a Student Clinician in his school’s Employment Law Clinic. While there, Jason gained hands on experience in litigation by, among other things, representing clients in employment discrimination and unemployment matters. Jason’s cases involved unemployment hearings, administrative appeals, and discrimination charges and mediation before the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (“EEOC”). Based on his outstanding work and dedication to his clients, Jason was named the “2011-2012 Outstanding Clinical Student of the Year,” an award presented by The Clinical Legal Education Association.


Following taking the Pennsylvania Bar Exam in July of 2012, Attorney Beardsley worked for Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Attorney Ernest D. Preate, Jr. During his time with Attorney Preate, Attorney Beardsley was exposed to a broad array of legal issues and problems, greatly augmenting his experience with Criminal Law, Family Law, and General Civil Litigation.


Attorney Beardsley’s practice based in Susquehanna County, Wyoming County, Bradford County, Lackawanna County, and the surrounding counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania now focuses on various areas of Employment Law, Family Law, Criminal Law, and General Civil Litigation at both the State and Federal Levels.

Intelligent, Honest, Bulldog
No nonsense, brutally honest and unrelenting in his pursuit of justice. His intelligence is unmatched, his tenacity is unlike any I've seen. He can take your information if honest with him, figure out a plan the same day and you can count on it being so, and will not waiver. Met him outside of the legal arena and then used his services and that's where the bulldog came in. All business. Locally, this man can not be equalled in his profession. Will be using him again very soon.

Very dependable, and knowledgeable of the law
Jason is a team player if you are truthful and don't play games with him. He is trustworthy and does represent the best interest of his clients. He can only work with what he is given by the client. He is a fighter and knows his work, if he is unsure he researches the facts. I feel he is one the most honest attorney's I have worked with. I recommend him highly.

Hardworking and dependable
I went to Jason to file a criminal matter this past summer. He was very attentive to the specific needs of my issue. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Although, at times it was difficult to get a hold of him he always made sure to get back to me either later in the evening or the next day. He also gave me his cell phone number so I can could call him after hours if I had any questions. He was very dependable and aggressive when it came time for trial. I would recommend him to anyone that needs to deal with any criminal matter.

Really cares about the client and the outcome
I am from Lackawanna County and got referred to Attorney Beardsley through a friend. I was seeking a divorce from my husband due to infidelity. The Lackawanna County attorneys either didn't want to take my case because I didn't have any upfront money or never returned my phone calls. Attorney Beardsley was quick to answer my calls and seemed very knowledgeable with the proceedings of the case. I was also allowed to make payments which helped me out greatly. I would highly recommend him for any type of legal action.

I retained Jason after i was unable to get in touch with the lawyer that I normally use. I got in a dispute with my wife and I was charged with Aggravated Assault (a felony), Terroristic Threats, and Simple assault. My wife made up some serious allegations against me that I had pointed a gun at her, that I had knocked her head through a wall, and that I had threatened to kill her. My bail was set at $500.000 and I was taken to jail. Within forty eight hours Jason had my bail reduced and I was able to be released from jail. The following Tuesday I had my preliminary hearing and Jason was able to negotiate a deal that resolved all my charges with a disorderly conduct. Before Jason became involved in the case, I was facing serious Jail time, he got me a deal where I got probation and will have a minimal impact on my future. He really came through for me. I would highly recommend him for any criminal charges that you may be facing.

No Nonsense! You get what you pay for-THE BEST!
We hired Jason for our son's criminal case. We went to several other attorneys and did not feel comfortable. Jason made us feel at ease and listened. We hired him. It was no nonsense. He didn't jerk us around and told us the truth. You might not hear what you want but at least you get the truth. He argued with the DA and the charges were dismissed at the preliminary hearing stage. My son was released from the county jail (as he should have) and life goes on. He wasn't cheap but we got what we paid for.

Jason is well worth the phone call. He is very proficient in his legal knowledge, as well as keeping clients up to date on their respective cases. He works for the best interest of his clients, and I would highly recommend him to anyone facing criminal/civil situations.

Great to Work With!
Jason Beardsley is by far the best attorney that I have ever hired here in North East PA. Jason is upfront and honest. He will take the time to fully understand and research your problem. If you’re looking for a top level competent attorney that will treat you fairly look no further.

Jason is one of the best attorneys that I have used. He is very knowledgable, is well prepared, and will give 100% of his time and effort fighting for you.

The best lawyer in town
Jason was great to work with. He made time to meet with me immediately, and showed me that he was willing to do whatever it would take to resolve the matter at hand. Very knowledgable, friendly, organized and precise. He did exactly what he said he was going to and kept me updated thruout the whole process. It was a result of a negative situation that I found Jason but on the positive side I now feel tht I have a lawyer and a friend that I can turn to for a wide aray of leagle advice.

Best in town!!!
Jason was very persistent and very professional. He fought hard to get the outcome i desired and wouldn't take no for an answer! One of the best things was his price, lowest cost in town! Grade A lawyer and one heck of a guy!

Terrible, lazy, money hungry, unprofessional
The worst lawyer yet the most expensive attorney I've ever had. Hes in it for the money and that's it. He's the talk of the county jail, infamous for screwing his clients over. There's absolutely no way these reviews are real. Disgusting
Posted by anonymous | May 1, 2015
This man does not represent his client's best interest. He only responds if backed into a corner and forced to. Get everything in writing since his story about what he can do changes from day to day or even hour to hour. He worked with the opposition instead of being "aggressive" as he advertises. This child custody case was a roller coaster nightmare. He even admitted it was confusing when it required a change of venue. Other overheard conversations convinced us we weren't the only ones having these issues. Look for other counsel who will be more trustworthy and responsive as we're doing now.

Response from Jason Beardsley July 28, 2015
I delivered this client the result that I told her that I would deliver from day one. I am not sure why she was dissatisfied. Despite what this client said, I am always truthful with my clients even if it results in having to tell them things they do not want to hear.

"If you’re looking for the best private practitioner in Northeast Pennsylvania, look no further. Gritty, tenacious, dedicated, and prepared. Attorney Beardsley hails from a small town and this makes him client oriented. He is an advocate for the “little guy.” He gives personal attention to every case and will fight for you no matter what. If you’re looking for a private attorney to suit any legal need he is your man. State, federal, trial or appellate cases, no matter the case at hand he has you covered."
Child custody Attorney | May 19
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I've worked on several cases against Attorney Beardsley in the last few years and I have to be honest, he is an excellent advocate. I would also define him as being honest and honorable, fair minded and guided not only by his client's needs but also by an ingrained sense of decency and a desire to achieve the right, fair result. I respect his ability and admire him as both a friend and a well-prepared, very bright adversary."
