Jason graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a Bachelor's degree in Economics in 1996, and earned his Juris Doctorate degree from Georgetown University in 2000, where he was named to the Dean's List, and was the recipient of the Greenfield Trial Practice Award.

Upon graduation from Georgetown, Jason joined the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office in Miami, Florida, as an Assistant State Attorney. During Jason's tenure as a prosecutor, he tried approximately forty jury trials to verdict as lead counsel, and more than fifty bench trials, prosecuting such violent crimes as murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, sexual battery, and narcotics trafficking. Jason also argued on numerous occasions before the various Florida Appellate Courts and was specially appointed by Executive Order of the Governor to represent the state of Florida in conflict situations.

Jason has been recognized as an Ohio Super Lawyer by Law and Politics Magazine, and repeatedly has been identified in Best Lawyers in America for Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability Law.
