As a counselor to Pacific Northwest and national employers, Jared helps his clients achieve productive relationships with union represented workforces and negotiate quality labor agreements. He strives to provide his clients with practical advice on complying with the intricate and overlapping network of federal, state and local employment laws.

Jared provides counsel to public and private employers, with a special emphasis on health care and senior living. He understands that employers want to manage employees and comply with labor and employment laws in a way that is consistent with their goals and operational needs, and they want to work to reduce their risk of liability. He applies these principles every day when negotiating labor agreements, addressing disputes and providing advice on a wide variety of complex laws and regulations from anti-discrimination and harassment to navigating the network of laws regulating employee leave, accommodation of disabilities, and drug use and drug testing in the workplace.

Jared received his law degree from Harvard Law School and was a clerk for The Honorable Jerome Farris of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. Prior to practicing law, Jared received his degree in Human Biology from Stanford University and engaged in genetic research concerning human evolution and complex diseases.
