Professional Experience

Upon graduating from law school, Jason worked for The Honorable Robbie M. Barr in Miami, FL. Following his employment with Judge Barr, Jason worked for a series of highly regarded law firms in Miami, focusing his practice at each firm on complex commercial litigation. Early in his career, Jason spent nearly two years working with a team of attorneys representing the Successor Trustee of Southeast Banking Corporation — sister entity to Southeast Bank, N.A., the largest bank in the State of Florida at the time of its demise in 1991 — in liquidating the bank’s assets and administering the claims being prosecuted by the bank’s estate. Ultimately, nearly $360 Million was recovered and distributed to the bank’s creditors.
