Biography

Jason Burress is a 7th generation Texan who earned his law degree from SMU School of Law. After law school, Jason worked for a prominent Texas based law firm managing hundreds of high-stakes cases involving personal injury and wrongful death with millions of dollars at risk.

Since founding Burress Law PLLC in 2008, Jason’s practice has shifted from defending insurance companies and product manufacturers to representing people who are injured or have lost loved ones due to someone else’s negligence. Jason dedicates his practice to helping serious personal injury victims of catastrophic 18 wheeler crashes, motorcycle wrecks and car crashes as well as victims of drunk drivers and dangerous or defective products.
