When you need "Major" results for your consumer bankruptcy matters, Jason is there to serve.
Jason handles Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 consumer bankruptcy matters on behalf of large, national financial institutions as well as local credit unions. As a bankruptcy litigator, he represents his clients in adversary proceedings to dispute the dischargeability of certain debts, including fraudulent activity, luxury goods purchased prior to filing bankruptcy, and student loans.
When bankruptcy department managers and collection managers come to Jason, they are looking for a dedicated team player that can ultimately help them reduce losses caused by accounts that wind up in bankruptcy. They need someone who will respond to all of their questions in a timely and efficient manner, and in a way they can easily understand (sans legalese). Jason fits the bill in more ways than one.
His keen attention to detail is certainly noteworthy. He once had a client refer a file where – unbeknownst to them – the proof of claim deadline had already passed. While most would have passed it off and closed the file, Jason took it upon himself to thoroughly review the bankruptcy filings to determine if this truly was a dead end. In doing so, he uncovered a key detail: the debtor had listed a former address for the creditor, preventing his client from receiving the notice in a timely fashion. This was an important piece of information because it allowed Jason to file a motion to allow the claim, showing good cause for the delay. By uncovering this small detail, Jason was able to collect 100% of his client’s claim – resulting in more than $20,000 in recoveries.
Jason is a Major in the U.S. Army Reserve and is a decorated Veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan; first as an administrative law attorney with the Multi-National Corps Iraq Headquarters at Camp Victory, and later as a contract and fiscal law attorney with the 645th Regional Support Group at Kandahar Airfield. He is married with two daughters, and he enjoys starting and ending his day by listening to podcasts during his commute.
