Defending individual liberty and Constitutional rights is not just Jason’s job, it is his raison d’être. As the leader of Binnall Law Group’s civil litigation practice, Jason Greaves fights for his clients to protect their civil rights. He is an experienced trial lawyer and uses that to his advantage when taking on Big Law and their teams of litigators who rarely see the inside of a courtroom.
Whether protecting the reputation of his clients from baseless slander and libel, or defending their First Amendment rights from a defamation lawsuit, Jason and the team at Binnall Law Group focus on aggressively preparing the case for trial, and if possible, making use of anti-SLAPP laws (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation) to put an early end to frivolous cases and recover attorney’s fees for his clients.
In 2010, Jason left his prior career in Finance to attend George Mason University School of Law (now the Antonin Scalia Law School) to make a difference for individuals, not just an institution. From early in his legal career, Jason quickly accumulated a rare combination of jury trial and litigation experience, taking the lead on a wide variety of cases. From there, he shifted to insurance defense, where he represented individual policyholders, gaining even more trial experience, and earning a reputation of success for his clients.
In the aftermath of 2020, having witnessed the unprecedented devastation of small businesses by government overreach, curtailments on free speech by media and tech companies, and the unequal treatment of Americans under the law based on their religious and political affiliations, Jason decided to join Binnall Law Group. Here, he puts his skills to use in service of individual liberty.
Jason’s varied experience includes defamation, Title IX gender discrimination and due process claims against universities, business litigation, and construction defect. Jason has defended complex personal injury actions, including traumatic brain injury, wrongful death, commercial trucking accidents, and premises liability.
Jason grew up in San Jose, California, and then Miami, Florida, and has lived in Northern Virginia since 2006. Outside of legal practice, Jason spends his time with his wife and daughter and loves working with his hands, home improvement projects, barbequing, and target shooting at the range.
Jason is licensed to practice law in Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Texas.
