Jason is an employee benefits attorney working exclusively for employers and benefits consultants.  He has spent over a decade simplifying and explaining the tax code and other complex retirement plan law. 
Jason works closely with clients to design new and restated plan documents, amendments and ancillary documents for both tax-qualified retirement (401(k), profit sharing, pension, cash balance) and non-qualified (executive compensation) plans. He also advises on fiduciary obligations to retirement plans and monitors new legislation and regulatory guidance from the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor to help clients avoid violations of the tax code and ERISA. When a violation occurs, Jason counsels clients on the practical and legal options available, with the goal of keeping client costs to a minimum while protecting plan assets.   
Jason currently serves as a board member on the Western Pension and Benefits Council. Outside of work and volunteering, he enjoys snowboarding, drinking local IPAs, camping and spending time with his daughter. He recently began taking drum lessons and would like to learn to fly fish.
