Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.
Jack has years of experience litigating complex, high-stakes cases where there are millions or even billions of dollars on the line. Even under these pressures, Jack remains cool and grounded during the most heated and stressful cases. His broad range of experience includes defending the United States in large civil suits in federal courts across the country, such as two bellwether suits brought by residents of Greater New Orleans for flood damages incurred in Hurricane Katrina. Jack has handled cases across a wide area of subject matters—large-scale flooding, engineering, law enforcement, personal injury, and corporate losses.
Across varied disputes, whether at the national or local scale, Jack brings his creative, multi-dimensional approach to every problem. His appreciation of every dispute is not limited to its nuts and bolts. He understands more than just the applicable legal frame work and he has a firm grasp of its practical impact on a client’s interests.
But that’s not all. Jack is also very experienced in:
- Settlement negotiation
- Trial litigation
In his former life, Jack was:
- A trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Division, Torts Branch
- A law clerk for the Maine Supreme Judicial Court
- Staffer for the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs

Spending time in the great outdoors running, cycling, or telemark skiing, and off seeking adventures with his wife and children.
