His trials have involved multi-million-dollar contract disputes, large personal injury suits, employment discrimination, and business and real estate disputes.

Jason also has a robust appellate practice. Jason clerked for the Honorable Timothy M. Tymkvoich of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and has been a member of the Tenth Circuit’s Criminal Justice Act panel for more than a decade. He has argued in front of the Tenth Circuit and the Colorado Court of Appeals nearly a dozen times and has several published cases including Protocols v.

Jason focuses on his clients’ best interests in helping them resolve complex problems or getting just compensation for wrongs committed against them. As a trial lawyer, Jason knows the risks, stresses, and strategies of trial. He strives to help his clients by avoiding litigation when possible. He knows litigation is never easy, but sometimes necessary, so he is not afraid to go to trial. Jason enjoys the practice of law and considers it a profession, not just a business.
