Jason P. Hungerford


Jason’s path to becoming a lawyer started while working as an audio/visual consultant during trials. Captivated by the process and challenges of the law, he attended law school, where he excelled in the areas of writing and analysis.

Clients and colleagues appreciate Jason’s ability to distill complex ideas and convert them into practical resolutions and persuasive arguments. He displays sound judgment and shines in the areas of appellate work and brief writing.

At home, you’ll find Jason chasing his two boys and planning date-nights with his wife. Originally from warmer climates, Jason and his family love Minnesota and all it has to offer—especially the local pizza, beer, and ice cream, and the Vikings.
