Jason has litigated complex and catastrophic cases his entire career on behalf of thousands of individuals who were killed or catastrophically injured, obtaining justice for his clients by holding the wrongdoers accountable for their harmful conduct.
At Keller Postman, Jason represents individuals in various state and federal courts across the country, with a primary focus on defective product liability matters involving wrongful deaths and catastrophic injuries. He has tried to verdict and settled many cases, resulting in tens of millions of dollars in recovery for his clients throughout his career. Jason is also listed as a 2021 and 2022 Minnesota Super Lawyers Rising Star, honored for outstanding professional achievement and attaining a high degree of peer recognition.
Before joining Keller Postman, Jason was an associate at Robins Kaplan LLP in Minneapolis, where he litigated on behalf of many individuals who were hurt or killed by defective products. Notably, Jason was involved in litigating various Multi-District Litigations, including the Taxotere, ED Drugs, Abilify, Johnson & Johnson Talc Baby Powder, Stryker Hips, and Opioids cases. He coordinated litigations across the country against the sellers and makers of keyboard dusting sprays on behalf of individuals who were injured or killed when another driver crashed into them after “huffing” the spray while driving.
Recently, due to Jason’s creative and novel legal analysis and arguments, the Minnesota Supreme Court determined that child protection workers are no longer protected by court-created immunities. Now the courthouse doors are open to children and their families who were killed or harmed because the child protection workers failed to reasonably protect abused and neglected children.
Jason earned his law degree from Mitchell Hamline Law School, where he was an editor of the Mitchell Hamline Law Review. He graduated from Florida State University, where he studied business finance.
