Jason A. Greenberg was told from a young age that he should be an attorney. He founded the firm from his parent’s basement with no clients, but a simple belief that he could find people who shared his vision that attorneys could help their clients and fight the fights that are necessary.
These fights play out in the courtrooms of New York against the billion-dollar insurance industry, which collects your premiums for years and then acts as if you are a criminal when you are the victim of an accident and need the coverage that you spent years paying for.
Unlike many lawyers who put their name and face on a website, Jason has actually picked hundreds of juries in over twenty different Courts. In his career, spanning over four decades, Jason has tried a variety of challenging cases and taken multiple verdicts.
Many of the verdicts that the juries returned in favor of Jason’s clients exceeded the limits of the insurance companies’ coverage.
This forced the insurance carrier to truly be held accountable for their refusal to resolve a case on conditions that are fair to the injured person, not then the insurance company.
Jason has also handled appeals, oral arguments, motions, depositions and every conceivable Courtroom experience.
He is a tireless advocate who cares greatly about helping his clients.
Before founding the modern JAG Law Group, Jason’s skills were in such demand that he was doing trials for over twenty different law firms who needed his skills.
