As a leader of the firms highly experienced Litigation and Real Property Teams, Jason uses his team's collective knowledge, experience, and expertise to protect the firm's clients from litigation and liability whenever possible. When litigation cannot be avoided, Jason takes a firm but practical approach to defending the client's interests to promote the best possible result for the client as a whole, rather than focusing solely on the legal result. It takes the kind of real-world experience Jason acquired outside of the practice of law to understand the difference, and truly do what is best for a client.

Jason is a Kalamazoo native, with an international upbringing. He was raised speaking English and Italian, and later studied French and Japanese. Jason attended and graduated cum laude from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he earned the Certificate of Merit in Property Law. Jason began his law career when he prosecuted his first jury trial in the spring of 2011. Thereafter, Jason went on to serve a county prosecutor, three circuit court judges, a large Kalamazoo law firm, and as a partner in a smaller firm before founding Herbert Machnik Law Firm together with his partner, Ben Herbert.

Throughout his business and legal careers Jason gained extensive experience handling the broad needs of his clients in practical areas as well as legal areas, such as Litigation, Real Estate, Employment, and Trademarks. Jason is also certified as a mediator. Now as the leader of legal teams, he and his teams are adaptable to the unique needs of each client and circumstance to provide the best solution for each client beyond what a single individual can provide.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
