Notable Experience

When he joined Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore in 2011, Jason brought a wide range of experience that perfectly complements the firm’s steadfast dedication to protecting the rights of the injured individual. That broad experience provides Jason with a honed ability to vigorously and effectively litigate various complex issues for clients.

Jason represents plaintiffs in claims involving wrongful death, medical negligence, legal malpractice, car accidents, products liability and premises liability. Prior to joining the firm, he defended corporations in premises liability and products liability claims.

His experience representing corporations gave Jason a valuable perspective and insight on the behavior and tactics of corporate defendants – an insight he now wields as extra ammunition in his aggressive legal battles exclusively on behalf of injured plaintiffs.

Jason also served as a trial attorney for the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice, through the Attorney General’s Honors Program. While with the Antitrust Division, he was dedicated to protecting the rights of victims, which led him to his life’s calling: to protect the rights of plaintiffs who have suffered unforeseen tragedy through no fault of their own.

Jason has the background, passion, and tenacity not only to fight for but to achieve justice for the firm’s injured clients.

Jason is active in several legal organizations and has served for a number of years on the Board of Directors for both the Hillsborough County Bar Association and Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association. Jason earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of Florida and, later, his Juris Doctorate and Masters in Business Administration from Stetson University College of Law, where he graduated with honors.

Born and raised in Tampa, Jason lives with his wife Trisha and their three sons.
