I represent people and small businesses harmed by insurance companies and other wrongdoers. That’s it. There is, of course, more to my story.


Once I moved to Seattle, my work concentrated on insurance bad faith litigation, especially under commercial property, homeowners, and CGL policies. I also continued handling various civil litigation matters, ranging from construction defect litigation to toxic tort cases (pollution, asbestos).


After too long on the wrong side, trying different firms, and practicing in two states, I changed sides and started liking being a lawyer. Now, I apply my years of insurance coverage and litigation experience in service of real people harmed by insurance companies and others. I focus on a small number of compelling cases, including insurance bad faith, medical negligence, employment discrimination, personal injury, and consumer protection matters, in order to give my clients the best service.

If you would like more information about my practice, please take a moment to look around my website, and you are always welcome to contact me.

Excellent & Thoughtful
Jason thought of everything that I would need after being struck by a vehicle. He had a really great plan on how to cover all aspects of my recovery and future needs. I found a real friend with Jason and will recommend him anytime.

I highly recommend Jason
Jason represented me in a difficult dispute with my employer, which is a very large company. The dispute could have resulted in lengthy litigation. Jason helped me resolve the matter quickly, while keeping my job. My job has been important to me for many years, and I was terrified about losing it. I appreciated Jason’s guidance, honestly, and client-centered advice. I would recommend him to anyone!

Great Employment Law Representation
Prior employer withheld pay and 401k monies. They claimed a bunch owed to them and I ended up with a bunch to me. He will fight for you and win.
