Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death Lawyer Serving Indiana

Jason has been repeatedly recognized by his peers as one the best lawyers in Indiana. His recognition began in 2003 when the Indiana State Bar Association named him "Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year." In 2005, Jason was named "Forty Under Forty" by the Indianapolis Business Journal as one the most dynamic business and community leaders in the Indianapolis metro area. From 2004-2018, Jason has been repeatedly named an Indiana Super Lawyer; and recognized by attorneys throughout the State as a lawyer in the top 5% of his practice areas as published in Indianapolis Monthly and Super Lawyers Magazine. More recently, Jason was named a Fellow by the Indiana Bar Foundation, and in 2013, named "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" by The National Trial Lawyers. He is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and has an Avvo Rating of 10.0 Superb as a Medical Malpractice Attorney. From 2016 to 2018, Jason's peers voted him a Top 50 Super Lawyer for the State of Indiana.

Jason handles high-stakes personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice cases. He has obtained numerous verdicts or settlements in excess of $1,000,000 for his clients. These include several settlements in which the defendant required a confidentiality agreement, a settlement of $6,620,000 on behalf of an injured construction worker, $18,000,000 in an explosion case, and dozens of maximum 7-figure recoveries for patients in medical malpractice claims. For instance, Jason recently obtained a $1.1 million jury verdict in Richmond, Indiana on behalf of a mother that lost her baby due to malpractice. The defense never made any settlement offers but ended up paying the full verdict, plus significant pre-judgment interest.
