Jason R. Johns is an experienced attorney who has been licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 2004. Jason has represented clients at both the trial court and appellate court levels. He represents individuals and businesses throughout Western Pennsylvania.
Jason focuses on four main areas of law:
Estate Planning: While nobody wants to think about death or disability, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Jason can assist with proper estate planning to put you in charge of your finances and potentially spare your loved ones the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or become disabled.
Elder Law and Medicaid Planning: While the golden years are supposed to be filled with the joys of retirement, grandchildren, and travel, they are seldom enjoyed without various other complexities that individuals encounter as they age including deteriorating health, financial concerns, and family disputes. To meet these challenges, Jason has the experience to counsel you regarding business succession planning, asset protection, Medicaid planning and Veterans’ benefits. Jason will work diligently to make sure the seniors he represents are protected and continue to enjoy a high quality of life as they age.
Family Law: Family ties are thought to be the most private and enduring relationships in society. As most can attest, however, these relationships are rarely free from conflict. When domestic issues cannot be solved within the home, family law seeks to restore order and provide a fair resolution for all parties involved. When legal action is necessary to resolve familial matters, it is essential that you entrust your most private matters to a compassionate and knowledgeable family law attorney. Jason has extensive practice in Family law and the wisdom to serve as a good listener, confidant, and advocate for all his clients during their most difficult times.
Bankruptcy: The decision to file for bankruptcy is often one of the hardest choices that a person has to make in his or her lifetime. Poor planning can often make the process even harder. It goes without saying that filing for bankruptcy should generally be a last resort and should only be done when all other methods of satisfying one’s financial obligations have been exhausted. However, if your situation has become so severe that you are in danger of foreclosure, garnished wages, or repossessions, or are facing debts that you are unable to repay, putting off the inevitable can have devastating consequences. Procrastination can cost you your car, your wages, and even your home. Filing your case in a timely fashion can spare you these losses. If you are currently facing one or more of these issues, bankruptcy may be the best and most logical way to get a fresh start on your financial start. Jason has over sixteen years’ experience practicing bankruptcy law and the knowledge to assess how filing bankruptcy can impact your individual situation.
Jason graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 2004 where he competed in both the Appellate Moot Court and Trial Moot Court competitions. He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Columbia University in 2001, majoring in Urban Studies and competed on both the Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field teams. He continues his association with Columbia University by volunteering to conduct admissions interviews for prospective students.
