Divorce is difficult. I help my client’s navigate and transition through the process.
Jason Wright has been licensed to practice law in Texas since 2012. While the practice of law was a second career for him—Jason instantly knew being an attorney was the right calling. Jason’s passion and dedication to the practice of family law was evident in law school as he worked in the family law clinic for low-income families.
Jason focuses on divorce, as well as complex child custody and property matters. While the vast majority of family law cases are resolved through mediation or informal settlement agreements, Jason is not afraid to fight for his client’s position in the courtroom. Jason’s ability to personally empathize with his clients as they experience the various emotional ups and downs of a family law case is what separates him from many of his peers—and what his clients find invaluable.
Born and raised in Ft. Worth, Jason came to Austin in 1994 and pretty much hasn’t left. After deciding to attend law school, he returned to Ft. Worth to attend Texas Wesleyan School of Law. While in law school, Jason was active in the Student Bar Association on both a school and regional level. He was elected the Executive Lieutenant Governor of the 13th Circuit and awarded the ABA Silver Key (highest award a Circuit can bestow to a student). In addition, Jason was the founder of the Texas Wesleyan Journal of Real Property Law. Since passing the bar, Jason continues his involvement with the Austin Bar Association, Williamson County Bar Association, and the Texas Family Law Section of the State Bar.
Jason is also very active in Scouting. Jason is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor recipient and has served in almost every leadership role throughout his Scouting career. Currently, Jason serves as the Chairman for the Longhorn Council Aquatic School Committee where he oversees and directs a week-long leadership/instructor & lifeguard program for Scouts ages 13-17.
Jason also donates his time and legal knowledge to assist The Volunteer Legal Services of Travis County by running a pro-bono divorce clinic for low-income families. Because of his efforts, Jason was a 2016 Judge Susan Covington Pro-Bono Award Honoree and is also a member of Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas.
When he’s not volunteering or working, Jason enjoys playing golf and racquetball as well as spending time with his beautiful wife and two children.
