Jason Whiting

Personal Injury Lawyer

Jason is a trial lawyer who fights for the rights of injured people and their families across southwest Virginia. He has successfully tried dozens of cases to both juries and judges across the Commonwealth and has negotiated hundreds of personal injury settlements. Jason knows firsthand that the insurance companies hire skilled trial lawyers to save insurance dollars—he was one such lawyer before joining Skolrood Law Firm.

Before attending law school, Jason was a claims adjuster for a prominent auto insurer. Jason’s experience working for “the other side” gives him special insight into their tactics and makes him uniquely capable to serve as your personal injury attorney, fighting for your right to a fair recovery. Jason’s reputation for never shying away from the courtroom ensures that his clients’ claims are taken seriously from the start.

“I see myself as a counselor-at-law first, an attorney-at-law second—I fully engage with my clients to understand their unique circumstances before recommending a course of legal action that is truly best for them and their families.”

Jason earned his law degree from Washington & Lee, and his undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh. He is a combat veteran who served eight years in the Marines, including deployments in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom as an infantryman.

Jason’s work ethic was forged not only through military service but from working several labor-intensive jobs as a forklift operator, construction laborer, and commercial fisherman in Alaska. When Jason is not practicing law, he is training for his next marathon or spending time with his wife and two sons.

Ask Jason

Q: If we cannot get a fair settlement from the insurance company, will my case be filed in Circuit Court or General District Court?
A: General District Court cases (in front of a judge, not a jury) can now be filed for up to $50,000 (up from $25,000), so many clients will be better served in GDC these days.  Other clients will still need to file in Circuit Court to obtain full and fair compensation for their injuries and lost wages. At Skolrood, we take the time to fully discuss venue options with you because they differ not only in financial rewards, but also in terms of their efficiency and the stress involved in filing.
