Professional Background

For the past twelve years, Jared has devoted his practice to aviation-related matters, a significant part of that work having focused on insurance defense and catastrophic personal injury cases. He has successfully defended domestic companies, airports and privatized air traffic control towers in matters ranging from product liability, property damage, commercial disputes, breach of contract and personal injury.

He also frequently provides his clients with valuable advice on effective strategies for communicating with the FAA, like how (and whether) one should respond to a FAA issued Letter of Investigation (LOI).

He also provides advice and support for every aspect of your aviation business needs. Such experience has involved drafting and negotiating aircraft sales agreements, aircraft rental agreements, aircraft management agreements, and dry and wet lease agreements, which he has performed for Part 141 flight schools, charter operations, other corporate aircraft owners and individual owners.
