An Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer passionate about representing injured workers in Georgia
Jason is a passionate and knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer. He joined Gerber & Holder Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in August 2018. Having previously defended insurance companies and employers, he brings unique knowledge and skill when it comes to negotiating for the best possible outcome for injured workers. He is a board-certified, licensed Georgia attorney.
Jason attended Purdue University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in History, Political Science & Pre-Law. After spending two years in the hospitality industry, he earned a second bachelor’s degree from Ball State University in History, Philosophy, & Legal Studies in Business. At Ball State, he was awarded the Presidential Scholarship of Merit, was one of eight students to graduate with Academic Honors in Writing and graduated cum laude.
For law school, Jason moved down to Macon, Georgia to attend Mercer University Walter F. George School of Law and received his J.D. in 2014. While at Mercer, he was a student member of several academic groups including the American Bar Association, Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International Second Amendment Society, and the Sports & Entertainment Law Society. He also was awarded the Faculty Scholarship of Merit.
Jason began his career working as a law clerk and eventually Associate Attorney at law firms in Macon and Lawrenceville, GA defending the interests of employers and representing insurance carriers in premises liability and negligence cases.
However, after years of working for businesses and insurers, he realized that something was missing. He wanted to feel fulfilled in his career by knowing he was helping people, which is why he ultimately decided to switch sides and move to Atlanta to represent injured workers instead.
Jason is a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the American Bar Association. He has also been admitted to the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
Jason was born and raised outside St. Louis, Missouri. When not fighting for the rights of injured workers, he loves spending time with his wife, Kiley, and two dogs. He and his family are active in their church and enjoy woodworking, hunting, Georgia football, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
