Attorney Jason M. Jabar
Personal Injury, Civil Litigation
Jason grew up in Waterville where he was an All-State Football and Basketball star. He attended Colby College, where he captained the basketball team and earned All-New England honors in football. After graduating from Colby, Jason attended the University of Maine School of Law in Portland where he graduated cum laude. During law school, Jason gained experience representing large corporations like Bath Iron Works at the firm of Monaghan Leahy in Portland. He also completed an internship for the Kennebec County District Attorney’s office. After law school, Jason worked in the Appellate Division of Unum Insurance Company. In 2001, Jason left Unum for private practice and he has been representing Mainers ever since at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC.
Jason trained under his father, current Maine Supreme Court Justice Joseph Jabar and former law partner and current Maine Superior Court Justice Michaela Murphy. Jason currently serves on the Board of Governors for the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Jason has extensive court room experience, handling hundreds of civil and criminal cases, including two criminal homicide cases. He has fought in over one hundred contested trials, including several jury trials. In Jason’s first personal injury jury trial, he obtained a $148,000 jury verdict for his injured client after a four-day trial against one of the state’s top insurance defense attorneys. In that case, the opposing insurance company offered nothing to settle. He also obtained verdicts of $406,000, $311,000, and $175,000 for his clients, all in cases where the opposing parties offered nothing to settle. Jason has helped recover tens of millions of dollars for his clients in personal injury settlements and judgments, including a $3.9 million settlement.
Jason defeated Aetna’s New York City lawyers in a hard-fought battle in federal court, to reinstate his client’s long-term disability benefits. In January 2013, Jason was given the prestigious “Top 40 Under 40” label at the National Trial Lawyers Association Summit in Miami. In 2018, 2019 and 2020, Jason was named to the “Super Lawyers” list by the reputable Super Lawyers Magazine in the field of personal injury. He has received a “superb” rating of 10 on Avvo. Because of his strong experience and reputation in personal injury law, other Maine attorneys regularly refer personal injury cases to Jason.
Jason is married with four young children. When not working, he is active coaching youth football and basketball, and enjoying time with his family.
Call a lawyer who won’t back down
If you were hurt in a Maine car accident, Jason is ready to help. He knows the impact an injury can have on victims and their families. The medical expenses add up quickly and can soon become overwhelming. If you can’t work, there is less money coming in. Many families have trouble paying the bills during this difficult time.
Recovering financial compensation can be difficult. The negligent driver who caused your accident may deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies are supposed to help, but they are only interested in maximizing their profits. They may question the extent of your injuries or blame you for causing the accident -- anything to try to pay you as little as possible.
Jason has been helping the injured fight back against the insurance companies for decades. He investigates your accident to get the facts, then builds a strong case that insurance companies can’t ignore. He is often able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that meets your need.
