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.

*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).
