Meet Your Attorney

Jason Sawyer

Attorney at Law

Throughout his career, Jason has worked hard to help his clients navigate a justice system that defines people by their poor decisions while ignoring the socioeconomic circumstances that lead them down the wrong path in the first place. Attorney Sawyer excels at what he does because he brings more than just skill, knowledge, and experience to the table. He is truly passionate about making a difference by helping others overcome and move forward in the face of a machine that strives to punish as opposed to rehabilitate.

Don’t Let a Mistake
Derail Your Future

“I believe my clients are good people who have made poor decisions. Life is complicated, and, sometimes, mistakes are made. A poor choice does not define you, nor should it define the rest of your life.”

—Jason Sawyer
