Jason owns WARDS LAWYERSPC, a full-service, eight-lawyer firm in the City of Kawartha Lakes (Lindsay), Ontario.

He practices litigation generally, including civil/commercial, family law, estates and employment law. Jason articled with Siskinds (London), before practicing civil litigation at (the former) Ogilvy Renault, Toronto. After unsuccessfully running in the 2003 Ontario provincial election (Liberal candidate), he and his family relocated from Toronto to Lindsay, Ontario, his hometown, where he started his law firm. Shortly afterwards, his wife, Karissa, left her position as a business lawyer at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt, Toronto, to join Jason to build their own firm, which today is one of the largest firms in the area.

Since becoming a lawyer in 2000, Jason has appeared and argued trials and cases in all of the Ontario Courts, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, the (former) Ontario Municipal Board and other tribunals and administrative bodies. He has also represented the Public Guardian and Trustee, including being appointed by the Superior Court as “section 3 counsel”, representing incapable and vulnerable people. Jason has also been a faculty speaker for continuing legal education for Ontario lawyers, including most recently at the Law Society of Ontario’s Six-Minute Estates Lawyer conference. He often writes legal articles, blogs and, currently, his article about the law of dead bodies and human remains is being published by a prominent legal journal.
