Best of the best in the Northwest
This was my first time needing a lawyer and I couldn't have found a more perfectly suited match for my case. Jason went above and beyond to make sure I got what I wanted and was able to significantly reduce the sentence down from what they originally gave me. I personally, will never put myself into that situation where I was in before, to even need a lawyer but I strongly recommend others partner with him if that's what you need. His prices are extremely fair and cheaper than what you'd get elsewhere, and he puts in double the effort to get you the most fair sentence possible.

Jason provided an extremely effective and thorough representation
Jason represented my son in a criminal defense case in 2013. Jason was very effective in navigating us through every plausible option for us to consider in my son's defense. He thought of virtually every possibility and made tactical moves to avoid them. The "victim's" family attempted to misrepresent damages resulting in the prosecutor actually filing a felony against my son, and while we all knew it was unfounded and made us extremely concerned, Jason was cool, calm and collected through the process of exposing all this and getting the charged reduced back to a misdemeanor. I have worked with people my entire professional career and have come to be able to read personal characteristics very well. Jason is a smart, caring and savvy individual that we could not recommend strongly enough.

I highly recommend Jason
Jason was very helpful in getting my case dismissed as quickly and easily as possible. He always conducts himself in a professional yet approachable manner that lets you know you're taken care of. I would recommend Jason to anyone in search of legal council.

Highly recommend Jason
Jason is an outstanding attourney. He is straight forward, always well prepared, and responsive. He won a difficult case for us and could see in the courtroom he is deeply knowledgable in the law and respected by the court judge on his knowledge of court procedures and the professional manner he handled our case and arguments. Jason is excellent on cross examination and his ability to identify inconsistencies in the opposition testimony and insightful closing arguments turned the outcome in our favor. Also he is just a great guy to work with as a client. Efficient and passionate about the case.
