Meet Our Associate Attorney
Jason R. Jones, J.D.
Jason is an associate attorney at Loftin & Loftin who focuses on issues of Property Law as they arise in estate planning, estate litigation, real property, and civil litigation. In addition to transactional work and litigation, Jason has lectured domestically and internationally on Property Law issues at academic conferences and CLE programs.
If he could give clients one free piece of advice it would be this: “Knowing what is enough is wealth.”
A North Carolina native with deep roots in Wake and Johnston counties, Jason attended NC State for undergraduate studies in Philosophy, English, and History, then continued on to UNC Chapel Hill for Law School. He may still be found in Raleigh from time to time volunteering in the White Memorial Presbyterian Church’s Brass Ensemble, of which he has been an active member since 2006.
At UNC Law Jason began focusing on Property Law issues under the tutelage of Professor John V. Orth, whom Jason enjoyed the pleasure of serving as a Research Assistant for many years, and is proud to still call a friend and mentor today. Jason also served as Research Assistant to Professor Gene R. Nichol, Pro Bono Director Sylvia Novinsky, and the Hon. J. Matthew Martin. During law school Jason worked at the North Carolina Supreme Court, the UNC Poverty Center, Judicial District 15B’s Guardian ad Litem Program, and the UNC Cancer Project. In his spare time he instructed swim lessons, indoor cycling, and rock climbing.
Jason began working at Loftin & Loftin, PA during his final year of Law School, making formal appearances under the 3rd Year Practice Rule. The first non-Loftin hired by the firm, Jason met John D. Loftin in law school while taking his Federal Indian Law course. Jason was quickly taken by John being the most human lawyer he’d ever met (while John was taken by a modern youth who actually knew who William James was).
When not at the office Jason enjoys spending time with his wife and dogs, and, as time allows, stealing away to the mountains to climb.
