Clients describe Jack Jarrett as an “outstanding attorney.” One client noted, he “fought vigorously for me, always kept me up to date, and provided great advice when it came time to make decisions.”

Jack’s cases have involved a wide variety of employment issues, including discrimination, hostile work environment, retaliation, overtime and minimum wage claims, security clearance revocation, breach of contract, and qui tam claims under the False Claims Act. Jack has obtained favorable jury verdicts and substantial settlements for clients at various stages of negotiation, litigation, and appeals.

Among his notable cases, Jack is most proud of a settlement he negotiated in a gender discrimination lawsuit brought by a woman who had been underpaid by a defense contractor and then fired and replaced with a less experienced man. Opposing counsel dismissively questioned the client’s decision to reject a settlement offer during EEOC mediation, and loudly claimed the company would never offer more. However, after filing a lawsuit and defeating a dispositive motion, the case settled for six figures and nearly six times the offer at mediation.

While in law school, Jack was a member of the Law Review, where his note was selected for publication. He was also a member of the Trial Advocacy Board and his team finished second in the New York City Regional Labor and Employment Trial Advocacy Competition. After law school, Jack worked for a firm representing private and public sector employees in the DC area.

Jack is licensed to practice law in Virginia*, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

*Admitted to practice only in Virginia. Practicing in the District of Columbia under the direct supervision of Alan Lescht, a member of the DC Bar, pursuant to DC Court of Appeals Rule 49(c)(8).

I dealt with Alan and Jack for an extended period in 2017 involving a somewhat complex federal employment situation.

Jack is a very talented and outstanding attorney! We were up against some high ranking military officials and when other attorneys may not take on a case of this stature, Jack stepped in and fought vigorously for me. He always kept me up-to-date regarding what was happening with my case and always provided me with great advice when it came to me making decisions. In the end, I won my case, we settled out of court and I was very pleased with the settlement package Jack negotiated for me. I was in awe with Jack’s talent… amazing! I will not hesitate to use his services again if needed in the future. I highly recommend hiring this talented attorney if you require legal services. Jack is a young shining star in the legal world!
