Jason P. Dollard – Intolerant of Negligence
Jason Dollard may be the newest member of the Schwed team, but he certainly is not a newcomer to personal injury. For almost 15 years, Jason has focused on personal injury litigation, representing those who have been victimized by the negligence of others in cases that range from automobile accidents and premises liability to medical practice and wrongful death.
There is no doubt where Jason stands and what he won’t tolerate. In his words, “My goal is to help the injured and their families…and get them the recovery they are entitled to because of the negligent acts of others.”
A native of the Washington, DC, area, Jason graduated from Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts degree and he then pursued a law degree at Nova Southeastern University. Following a short stint back in DC after his first year of law school, Jason realized his future was in South Florida, and he completed law school, passed the Florida Bar in 2003 and then established his own practice in Delray Beach in 2005.
There he became an active member of the community, serving on the Chamber of Commerce and Police Advisory Boards, chairing the Code Enforcement Board for a term of one year, and sponsoring several charity events and youth sports teams. Jason was instrumental in helping to establish the very successful Young Professionals Association of Delray (YPAD), being one of several members who recommended to the Chamber Board that involving young professionals in the Chamber would enhance the Delray business community.
After operating his own practice, in 2012 Jason went on to be Of Council for a well-known Palm Beach Law Firm before joining Schwed, Adams & McGinley in mid-2018. Along the way, Jason has been recognized several times for his litigation skills; he was named a rising star by the prestigious Super Lawyers magazine five years in a row.
An avid golfer (when his schedule allows), Jason is a current board member of the Palm Beach County Golf Association since 2012.
While Jason is passionate about his work, it’s when talking about his two-year-old daughter, Emerson, and his wife, Marisa, that he truly lights up. And it is because of his own family, he is driven even more to succeed on behalf of the families he fights for every day.
