Prior to joining MichieHamlett, Jason served as a judicial extern for the Honorable M.

He has been building on these early, formative experiences and is included in the Best Lawyers in America, 2020 edition, and was named a Virginia Rising Star in Super Lawyers from 2013 through 2019.
Jason regularly serves the legal community by presenting and organizing Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars on difficult topics such as parental alienation, business valuations in divorce, and best practices for family lawyers.

Jason enjoys the reputation that he’s earned as a pragmatic counselor to his clients as they navigate a difficult and uncertain period of their lives.
He earned his undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and his J.D. from University of Richmond School of Law, both with top honors. Jason is a native of Virginia, married with two young girls, and enjoys spending time with his family.
