A seasoned employment law and civil litigation attorney in the Indianapolis area, Jason has practiced law since 2003. He’s handled multiple federal jury trials in the Northern and Southern District of Indiana Courts and represented clients at the EEOC, MSPB, SEAC and ICRC, as well as Indiana State Courts, and local government bodies and boards.
He’s a DePauw University graduate, with a degree in Philosophy, who grew up in New Castle, Indiana. A third generation small business owner, he follows in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Jason lives in Indianapolis with his wife, two daughters, and one son.
After earning his law degree at Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, Jason spent the first seven years of his career as an attorney at Hostetter & O’Hara in Brownsburg, practicing general civil litigation before federal and state courts. In 2010, Jason began focusing his practice exclusively on defending the rights of employees who faced discrimination and unlawful employment actions with John H. Haskin & Associates (formerly Haskin & LaRue). In 2016, Jason founded Cleveland Lehner Cassidy with his two partners, Meghan and Chris, to follow their shared vision of how to best help their fellow Hoosiers and to continue the fight for the rights of employees.
You will not meet a bigger Indianapolis Colts fanatic, with his love for Hoosier basketball ticking in as a close second. Jason also enjoys running, regularly participating in local marathons and half marathons, and joins his family in running the Drumstick Dash each year. Aside from his devotion to the Horse (and his wife and kids, of course) Jason also enjoys jamming out to live music and watching Quentin Tarantino movies.
