Jason moved to Washington when he was 2 years old. Since then, he is proud to call Western Washington his home. Upon graduation from Western Washington University in 1997 he took some time off from school and drove a truck delivering clothing around the Pacific Northwest. In 1998, Jason enrolled in the University of California at Davis School of Law. After graduating in 2001, he moved back to the Seattle area and began his legal career.
Jason's first job as a lawyer was prosecuting DUIs, crimes of domestic violence for the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. After a brief stop at the Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office he went to work for the Skagit County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. At Skagit County for another 3+ years, Jason tried dozens of cases from DUIs, Domestic Violence Assaults, up to Sex Crimes and Vehicular Homicide. In December of 2005, Jason opened up a practice with his friend, Ron Costeck, that specializes in criminal defense.
Mr. Powers practices in Skagit, Shohomish, Island, San Juan and Whatcom counties. Occasionally, he will take a case elsewhere in the state. Jason also practices in the municipal courts of Mount Vernon, Burlington, Marysville, Bellingham, Anacortes, Sedro Woolley, Blaine and Lynnwood. His legal philosophy is too prepare each case as if it were going to trial to insure his client's rights are thoroughly protected.
Jason taught Rules of Evidence, Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure to students at the Skagit Valley College and various law enforcement academies. When Jason is not practicing law, he is rebuilding something around the house, reading or traveling.
