An analytical thinker with broad background in litigation, creditors’ rights, and contracts, Jason is a knowledgeable and experienced advocate for a wide range of firm clients. Before joining Stuart + Branigin, Jason represented public and private companies in commercial disputes and bankruptcy matters, and served as a county prosecutor.

The core of his practice is in resolving contract disputes on behalf of privately held companies and individuals. Jason’s experience ranges from business ownership and management conflicts to consumer protection defense to property and home construction disputes. He is typically able to resolve disputes before a case must be tried through either mediation or private negotiation; however, as a former prosecutor with substantial courtroom experience, he is also equipped to represent clients at trial or arbitration.

Jason’s contract litigation experience also helps him to guide Indiana businesses navigating a variety of commercial agreements. He provides ongoing counsel to a diversified industrial manufacturer assisting the in-house counsel and interacting with procurement executives to review and negotiate contracts with many domestic and international suppliers.

Firm clients also turn to Jason for representation in creditors’ rights and bankruptcy-related matters. His experience representing lenders, businesses and individuals in Chapter 7, 11, and 13 and bankruptcy litigation matters – and background in management and finance – enable him to identify efficient strategies to recover and preserve assets. Beyond creditors’ rights issues, he also works with banks and credit unions on commercial loan documentation matters.

In addition to his client commitments, Jason serves the Lafayette community as a board director of the Long Center for the Performing Arts and Home with Hope.
