Knowing the law is not enough for Jack; his strength as a litigator is in his curiosity about the underlying subject matter of a case. Jack gives himself an in-depth working knowledge of the subject matter with every case, even if that means pouring through medical text books, performing hands-on inspections of locomotives, analyzing detailed financial documents, or researching expert databases to give himself the edge when preparing evidence for trial. Jack understands that lawsuits do not exist in a vacuum and involve complicated underlying facts that, as an advocate, one must gain a mastery of to be able to convincingly argue to a jury.

As a member of the firm’s Construction Service Group, Jack partners with clients to resolve breach of contract issues, work towards risk mitigation, indemnity disputes, and insurance liability matters. He focuses his practice on construction litigation, contract and real estate disputes, business litigation, property loss and personal injury.

Prior to joining Amundsen Davis, Jack worked as a plaintiff’s attorney, which gives him valuable insight to the motivations, strategies, and goals of his opposition now. As a workers’ compensation attorney, Jack has handled several hundred cases through resolution via trial, favorable settlements, and on appeal. 

Jack now advises employers on best practices to avoid and mitigate workers’ compensation claims. He teaches OSHA classes at the Construction Safety Institute, and regularly provides lectures for contractors associations.

Jack is the host of Litigation Nation, Amundsen Davis’ flagship weekly podcast that recaps the most interesting legal news and developments.
