Jason also maintains an active public interest practice. He recently filed amicus briefs in the Sixth and Eleventh Circuits on behalf of national medical associations in cases of great constitutional importance. A federal district court appointed him lead counsel in a federal civil rights case, an engagement that resolved favorably for his client by way of confidential settlement. Jason also represents defendants in federal criminal matters under the Criminal Justice Act and has represented numerous ex-offenders as lead counsel in prisoner reentry-related litigation.

In 2021, Jason was selected as a “New Leader of the Bar” by New Jersey Law Journal, which recognized attorneys under the age of 40 who have left an indelible mark on the legal community and bring both notable achievements and outstanding potential to the table.

When not actively litigating, Jason serves as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School where he teaches litigation skills courses including deposition practice and trial advocacy. A frequent lecturer and writer, he regularly presents continuing education courses and authors law review articles, invited essays, and book chapters.

Prior to joining Fried Frank, Jason practiced at a boutique litigation firm.
