Attorney Jason M. Hatfield Cares About Every Aspect Of Your Case

I spent a number of years working in large law firms, handling high-profile personal injury lawsuits — including product liability, class action, toxic torts and environmental law cases. However, I wanted a more personal connection with those I was helping, and I established my own law firm in Fayetteville, the Law Office of Jason M. Hatfield, P.A., in order to provide a higher level of care to each of my clients.

“Jason is very professional and on top of everything. He helped me so much and I would use him again whenever I should need legal assistance again. I have recommended him to others several times.” — As submitted to lawyers.com

From your first meeting with me, I take the time to understand every detail of your case and work closely with you so that I can personally guide you through the legal process. Throughout your claim, I will address every question you have so that you understand your options and can make informed decisions.

Experience. Dedication. Compassion.

I have over 20 years of legal experience assisting victims throughout Northwest Arkansas, handling all types of injury claims. Additionally, I understand many of the medical details others do not because of my background in pre-medicine microbiology. I will ensure that you get the treatment and benefits you need to heal and move forward with your life.
