About Jason

Learn Jason’s areas of practice.

Seattle Attorney Jason Amala has devoted his law practice to representing individuals and businesses who have been victimized by others. His clients and cases span a diverse range, from pro bono representation of elderly tenants, to representing employees and consumers injured by defective products, to numerous multi-million dollar settlements for victims of childhood sexual abuse.  Jason primarily practices in state and federal trial court, but has also obtained favorable decisions from the Washington Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Washington.

Jason was raised in Salem, Oregon, but moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington Honors College. After graduating with distinction, Jason enrolled in the Seattle University School of Law, where he graduated second in his class, earned top honors in ten of his law school courses, received the Faculty Scholar Award at graduation, and was twice elected president of the student body.

Although Jason tries to make the world a better place through his legal practice, he also gives back to the community through different charitable organizations.  He has been a Board member of the Just Cauz Foundation since 2005, a non-profit that raises money for charities who focus on children, and he and his wife, Tamara, recently began volunteering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  In their remaining time, Jason and Tamara can be found camping in the summer and skiing in the winter.
