Jason Wesoky is a top-notch trial attorney with nearly 15 years’ experience handling a wide range of litigation matters, including multi-million-dollar contract disputes, personal injury suits, federal and state appeals, class actions, employment disputes, landlord-tenant cases, and construction defect cases.  Mr. Wesoky focuses on his clients’ best interests in helping them resolve complex problems or getting just compensation for wrongs committed against them. He has appeared before several Colorado district courts, the U.S. District Courts for Colorado, California, and Minnesota, the San Diego Northern District Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.  Mr. Wesoky has presented oral argument at various courts of appeals, including in the Tenth Circuit where he obtained reversal of the trial court’s decision in Protocols v. Leavitt, et al., 549 F. 3d 1294 (10th Cir. 2008). Mr. Wesoky is also a member of the Tenth Circuit’s Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel, where he handles criminal appeals for indigent persons. As a member of the panel, he successfully petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari. The Court granted the writ and vacated the ruling of the Tenth Circuit in Kittredge v. U.S.

As a trial lawyer, Mr. Wesoky knows the risks, stresses, and strategies of trial. He strives to help his clients, knowing that litigation is never easy, but sometimes necessary. He is not afraid to go to trial and averages four or more jury trials per year. Mr. Wesoky believes that safety is vital and he often selects cases based on the failure of someone to abide by basic, common-sense rules.

A Magna Cum Laude graduate of The Catholic University of America Law School in Washington, D.C., Mr. Wesoky has spent most of his career in private practice in Colorado and Maryland. He enjoys the practice of law and considers it a profession, not just a business.
