Jason’s role as an attorney is to solve his clients’ problems in the most efficient, cost effective manner. Although he is a trial attorney — and takes pride in his trial victories — from the outset of a matter Jason seeks to determine the best strategy for his client and their business regardless of whether that best strategy includes litigation. Whether a problem can be resolved by a simple phone call or if it requires a month-long jury trial, Jason is prepared to meet his clients’ needs and expectations while being sensitive to the realities of the time and expense of litigation.
In the past, Jason has successfully resolved his clients’ problems through negotiation and/or mediation—skills that Jason developed as a participant in the Harvard Mediation Program and Harvard Program on Negotiation, and that Jason has continued to develop through the hundreds of cases that he has successfully negotiated to a good result for his clients. Jason has also resolved his clients’ problems through successful motions for summary judgment, in obtaining verdicts for his clients at trial, in obtaining favorable decisions on appeal, and in arbitration. Whatever the problem his client may be faced with, Jason is prepared to fight for his client’s interests and find the best possible resolution.
Jason’s practice focuses on commercial litigation and he has significant experience in construction disputes, collections, partnership disputes, mechanic’s liens, non-compete disputes, trade secret litigation, and real estate litigation. Jason has handled cases all over the State of Utah in both federal and state courts. Jason also has significant experience litigating adversary proceedings in the Utah bankruptcy courts.
Before joining Marshall Olson & Hull, Jason was elected a shareholder at one of Utah’s finest law firms.
