A litigator and skilled courtroom advocate for his clients, Jason Kent tackles cases ranging from simple contract disputes to complex, high-value litigation matters with a common-sense approach honed by years of real-world experience. His ability to quickly assess and distill issues to their fundamentals creates exceptional value for his clients.
Prior to law school, Jason learned about contracts and labor disputes first-hand as a union representative for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, Div. 301, in Virginia. Before becoming a lawyer, he worked many years as a freight locomotive engineer, a career that taught him to think logically: “On a freight train, you need to think two miles ahead and two miles behind,” he observes, a skill that now serves him well as a litigator.
Jason joined Mountain Dearborn in 2021 as an Associate after a brief stint as a solo practitioner. During law school, he interned in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island with the Honorable John J. McConnell, Jr., and in the office of former Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III, serving citizens of the Massachusetts Fourth Congressional District. He completed his legal studies in a semester-in-practice externship in the Rhode Island Superior Court with the Honorable Richard A. Licht. He also holds the rare distinction of figuring out a way to take, and pass, the bar exam before graduating from law school.
In his spare time, Jason enjoys time with his family attending soccer games, walking his two Labrador retrievers, and working on antique German machinery.
