Excellent Referral
Despite my misfortune of being struck by a car while riding my bicycle last year, I feel very fortunate to have had Jason and his paralegal, Heather, on my side during my recovery. I faced costly emergency and other medical bills soon after the incident and dreaded the time-consuming effort of arguing with insurance companies as well as potentially losing money as a result of an accident. My employer spoke highly of Jason, and I understand why. He and his staff were cordial, professional, and responsive during every step of my case. It was a great support knowing his staff was working on my personal injury claim and and answering my financial questions while I resumed a normal lifestyle without that added burden. I am so grateful for the help of Jason and his office, and would recommend anyone to consult their personal injury needs with him.

I was so impressed with my entire case. Mr. Reese always kept me informed of every detail of my case. I alway's trusted everything he told me about the steps of my case. I never once had to call for an update. If you need a dedicated attorney I would suggest you call his firm. Plus we won our suit.

Personal Injury Case
The following items characterize Mr. Reese... 1. He was able to envision each step in the case prior to it happening, creating an environment that allowed us to best prepare our position in advance 2. His demeanor and approach commanded the respect of the opposition's attorneys, the arbitrators, and other authorities 3. He is incredibly intuitive when it comes to the law and identifying the best strategy to pursue 4. I am so glad that he was able to represent me and my case 5. He is a very genuine person and a good listener

Excellent Atorney!
Jason was a wonderful attorney when my husband was involved in an automobile acc ident. My husband was working when the accident happened,which made the case more complicated. Jason took care of us and our case from all angles while keeping us informed. I would reccomend Jason Reese to anyone needing an attorney that cares.

Personal Injury Case
Jason Reese represented me when I was struck(as a pedestrian) by a vehicle backing up in the wrong lane in a parking lot. I had a near-amputation of my right foot. Letting Jason handle our case was extremely helpful in letting me worry about healing, not how to pay medical bills. He pursued settlements from the driver's insurance, as well as my own insurance company. Jason kept us informed as to how the case was going and asked for our input when needed. After the final settlement, he actually sent us another check that came from negotiation with the hospital. We couldn't have had finer representation!

Review of Jason Reese
Jason Reese was a very caring attorney for us when we needed his services. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had as we went through the process with him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Works hard for you understand your frustration.
My son was hit while boarding a school bus. Jason wasn't pushy and his staff was so compassionate. I felt like they were family. I was worried and frustrated, and they overlooked how I took it out on them. I would encourage anyone to contact Jason and his staff, they work hard for you and your family.

Personal Injury
My husband had a medical malpractice suit. We ask Jason Reese to represent us. He and his firm were very efficient and kept us well informed as to what was happening. His staff were very kind and helpful also. The end results were successful. Not only is Mr. Reese great at his job, but he also very kind. If I needed his assistance again, there would not be any question, he would be the one.
