In that role, Jason had a front-row seat to some of the most widely publicized cases of the decade.

Upon completing his undergraduate studies at Columbia University, Jason served as a Special Assistant at the New York State Department of Financial Services, where he investigated LIBOR manipulation by several large banks. The investigation ended with a historic settlement, earning a much-needed windfall for the state's coffers. In law school, Jason spent his first-year summer at the New York County District Attorney's Office assisting in the investigation and prosecution of felony drug crimes. He got his first taste of plaintiff's work as a summer associate at the New York-based civil rights firm of Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady, LLP. There, he participated in a range of civil rights cases, from helping an undocumented minor secure legal status to investigating a wrongful murder conviction.

He went on to Columbia Law School, where he joined the Environmental Law Clinic and the Columbia Journal of Law and Social Problems, receiving his Juris Doctor in May 2018.
