Jason Thomas proudly served as a Sergeant in the United States Army. He watched his comrades return home from overseas with service-related injuries and illnesses. Often their battle was just beginning, as they fought the VA for the benefits they earned. The struggle they endured inspired Jason to work in Veteran’s advocacy, helping to appeal VA decisions and obtain better ratings for his clients.
“In an ideal world, this type of work wouldn’t be necessary. I see it as a service to Veterans for what they’ve done and gone through.”
Veteran’s advocacy law is personal for Jason. After his own father developed service-related cancer following military operations in Vietnam, Jason wrote the letter that secured his benefits. The Veteran-centered culture at Berry Law was the deciding factor that led him to the firm.
“Everybody I talk to is genuinely interested in and very in tune with Veterans’ issues.”
Jason was recognized with an Army Commendation Medal for his meritorious service in Iraq, as well as an Army Achievement Medal for outstanding training. During law school, he was a recipient of a CALI Award for Excellence, an honor bestowed on the highest scoring law student in his or her class.
Jason earned his Juris Doctor from Creighton University School of Law, where he was a member of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity. He has been heavily involved over the years in civic causes and nonprofit organizations, including Omaha’s arts and entertainment scene.
