    My name is Jason Ross. I’m an employment lawyer here at the firm. I’ve been here for six or seven years. I do all types of employment lawsuits and related matters and consulting – from your wrongful termination up to your nation or statewide class action wage and hour issues. I would say clients come to me because they appreciate the honesty and integrity that I have in the approach. They appreciate the practical philosophy that I have in providing them advice. They want powerful advice and representation that’s result driven, but is cost-efficient. And we keep that in mind at all time.
