BIO

Jason is a Board Certified Business Bankruptcy attorney that concentrates his practice on Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases and complex bankruptcy litigation. While in law school and for a time after graduation Jason practiced in the creditor’s rights area for many of the large financial institutions. Later Jason decided to use his knowledge of the creditor’s side for the Debtor’s advantage and switched sides. Now he concentrates his practice on helping businesses and individuals reorganize. Jason is often called upon as a Chapter 11 consultant when other debtor or creditor attorneys run into Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases.
