About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.

Jason Wright has been licensed to practice law in Texas since 2012. While the practice of law was a second career for him—Jason instantly knew being an attorney was the right calling. Jason’s passion and dedication to the practice of family law was evident in law school as he worked in the family law clinic for low-income families.

Jason focuses on divorce, as well as complex child custody and property matters. While the vast majority of family law cases are resolved through mediation or informal settlement agreements—Jason is not afraid to fight for his client’s position in the courtroom. Jason’s ability to personally empathize with his client’s as they experience the various emotional ups and downs of a family law case is what separates him from many of his peers—and what his client’s find invaluable.

In addition to practicing family law, Jason also finds satisfaction helping students, parents, and teachers who are facing the uphill battle of challenging a school principal, administrator or ISD policy. Jason has successfully represented clients from every ISD in the Austin area with issues ranging from IEP enforcement, ARD representation, DAEP placement, bullying, and general grievances and appeals. Jason finds a great deal of satisfaction helping “the little man” prevail against aggressive and unreasonable school districts.

Born and raised in Ft. Worth, Jason came to Austin in 1994 and pretty much hasn’t left. After deciding to attend law school, he returned to Ft. Worth to attend Texas Wesleyan School of Law. While in law school, Jason was active in the Student Bar Association on both a school and regional level. He was elected the Executive Lieutenant Governor of the 13th Circuit and awarded the ABA Silver Key (highest award a Circuit can bestow to a student). In addition, Jason was the founder of the Texas Wesleyan Journal of Real Property Law. Since passing the bar, Jason continues his involvement with the Austin Bar Association, Williamson County Bar Association, and the Texas Family Law Section of the State Bar.

Jason is also very active in Scouting. Jason is an Eagle Scout, Vigil Honor, and Silver Beaver recipient who has served in almost every leadership role throughout his Scouting career. In addition to serving as an Executive Board Member, Jason currently Jason serves as the Chairman for the Longhorn Council Aquatic School Committee where he oversees and directs a week-long leadership/instructor & lifeguard program for Scouts ages 13-17.

Jason also donates his time and legal knowledge to assist The Volunteer Legal Services of Travis County by running a pro-bono divorce clinic for low-income families. Because of his efforts, Jason was named a Judge Susan Covington Pro-Bono Award Honoree from 2016-2018 and is also a member of Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas.

When he’s not volunteering or working, Jason enjoys playing golf and racquetball as well as spending time with his beautiful wife and two children.

Excellent attorney
I first spoke with Jason when my previous attorney wasn't cutting it. My ex was keeping our son from me, and Jason hit the ground running. At every step of my case he was available to answer questions I had, give advice, and would make sure I understood what to expect. He only made promises that he knew he could keep. If I had to do this all over again, I would hire Jason from the start. 10/10 attorney.

Exceptional Service and Results
Words can’t describe high level of service Jason has provided for my custody case. These days it’s almost inconceivable that a father get custody of their child. I didn’t have very much faith going in the system or court going into the process but Jason did a great job managing my expectations throughout the ebbs and flows. My daughter is the highest priority in my life and I’m so proud to say with Jason’s help I get the chance to be the father she deserves. Jason is a consummate professional who understands family law with a passion for results. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jason’s service to anyone in need he is the epitome of what a family lawyer should be. If you are in need of real results and even if the deck seems stacked against you and your case call Jason, he cares about his clients and he gets results.

Completely Confident in Recommending Jason Wright
Jason came recommended to me during a very turbulent and confusing time in my life. If you’re reading this and wondering where to turn; I suggest giving Jason a call. From the first phone call to the final signing of my divorce papers, Jason was communicative, proactive, helpful and kind. I didn’t feel like “just a case” I felt heard. He’s pugnacious without temper, controlled, calm and collected. I always felt like things were being handled in a methodical and efficient way- which was greatly appreciated and relieving. I could tell Jason went above and beyond with me, and I know each case is different and the client’s need vary but that’s another attribute about Jason I valued- his ability to be flex and tailor his style a bit to what my case required. I interviewed other lawyers before ultimately deciding Jason would do the very best job for me with my divorce and I’m so glad I went with my gut. I’m 100% confident Jason was the right choice.

Outstanding
I was referred to Jason by another attorney I had worked with in the past. Jason was responsive, timely, and effective. He listened to what I wanted and was honest about what he thought was reasonable as well as what he thought was going too far. He was extremely knowledgeable and helped me understand my rights and explained my legal documents. His fees are fair and he always kept me updated on my bill. He was great to work with and if I should ever need an attorney again (hopefully not) I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Jason.

Caring and Committed: Our Attorney for LIfe
Mr. Wright truly exemplifies the honest, honorable, and sincere lawyer that some believe only exists on TV or film. Although the negative stereotypes that haunt the law profession are most likely the result of a few bad apples, it was nice to have a lawyer that was from the absolute beginning of our relationship so clearly good and authentic. Mr. Wright assisted us when we were the victims of another's greed and ill will. If it hadn't been for his relentless attention to the details of our case, my family would have been hurt beyond measure. Mr. Wright's professionalism is unmatched, his heart is good, and he will be our attorney for life. We can't recommend him enough.

Child Custody Resolution
Mr. Wright was very personable and helped me make the tough decisions needed in a child custody case. He is a dedicated father himself, and understands how to speak to his clients with his heart. Mr. Wright is also experienced legally, but it was his personality that helped get me through my situation.

Jason Wright, trustworthy, honest and realistic
Jason Wright helped guide me through a difficult divorce case. He was supportive, direct, and very trustworthy. I felt that Jason always gave me his attention and is very detailed oriented. He was realistic and willing to hear me out with questions and concerns. I would strongly endorse Jason Wright to anyone who needs help and guidance during a divorce. He made me feel protected, and helped me hold my head high during tough times.

Excellent representation for stay-at-home-parent
I found Mr. Wright by way of a friend who had been represented by the same firm during his divorce. As a long time stay at home dad who had returned to the workforce, I was anxious about how my time spent away from my career would affect my access to my children. It took only a consultation for Mr. Wright to understand my concerns and my hoped for outcomes. Mr. Wright took his time and explained each step of this arduous process to my satisfaction and understanding. After months of working through the process, I came away with all of my desired outcomes in place. I had the access to my kids that I desired and I was able to ensure they would get to grow up in the only home they had ever known. Mr. Wright was never confused nor dismissive of the complexities involved in my case, where the traditional child care-giver roles were reversed. It is because of his guidance and support that I am enjoying peaceful time with my children as often as I dared hope.

fair, firm, honest, supportive, empathetic, helpful
Throughout the process of working on my case, Jason Wright was professional, honest, supportive and helpful. He promptly returned phone calls and responded to emails, often offering more information than I had asked as to alleviate additional concerns I may develop, i.e. "what if...". Jason was very patient with me as I asked several questions and he addressed each one of my questions and concerns with a very helpful and guiding tone. During emotional times, Jason was both steadfast, empathetic while helping me work through my feelings, reassuring me of the process and how to move forward to handle my case. Jason helped me see the bigger picture, but was undoubtedly firmly representing my interests. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and the representation Jason Wright offered me.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Jason Wright is an excellent, first-class attorney. I first met him as my opposing counsel on a extremely contested divorce, and he was able to handle the case in a timely, efficient, and honest matter. I now know that when I see Jason's name on the other side, my opposing counsel is going to be reasonable and straight-forward to work with, which saves both of the parties' time, money, and emotional distress, while still being a zealous advocate for his clients. Jason does a great job representing his clients' interests and being a straight-shooter on setting clients' expectations. Jason's main focus is not just generating attorney's fees, he absolutely takes the time to carefully consider all the options and what would be in each client's- and the children's- best interest.
