Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Jason T. Brown, of The JTB Law Group, LLC has achieved the highest possible Peer Review rating from Martindale Hubbell. For more than 130 years, people have relied on the Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent® rating while searching for an attorneys. The AV Preeminent® rating is the highest possible rating for an attorney for both ethical standards and legal ability. This rating represents the pinnacle of professional excellence. It is achieved only after an attorney has been reviewed and recommended by their peers - members of the bar and the judiciary.
“I am very much honored to receive the AV Preeminent Rating,” Attorney Brown stated. “It’s been quite a year. We’ve been working hard for people’s rights, and the real recognition is when we make a recovery for our clients, but to be honored for our work is always special.” It has been quite a 12 month period for Mr. Brown, who was also featured in New York and New Jersey Top Rated Lawyers and invited to be featured in the Time Magazine Nationwide Employment Law Leaders. Before entering private practice, Jason T. Brown was a well respected Special Agent and Legal Advisor with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and handled many high profile cases.
The focus of the work of The JTB Law Group, LLC is to remedy injustices, specifically those that happen to a group of people in the class action or mass tort context. Certain class actions that the JTB Law Group, LLC litigate are the collective rights of employees who are shorted on their pay through a variety of unscrupulous employer techniques. “We’ve seen it all,” Counselor Brown stated, “From employees having to work off the clock, to being paid straight time instead of overtime, to being misclassified as “salaried” even though the law says you have to pay overtime. Certain positions we have addressed lately are mud loggers who are paid a day rate, companies who fail to calculate overtime properly, and others that are making their workers work off the books and sign phony time sheets to receive their pay. No matter what the problem is we provide advice to the employees to inform them of their rights.” The cases may last years or may be resolved in a few months. Attorney Brown points out, “Oftentimes, the cases we file involve fee shifters and we make good faith efforts to resolve the matter early, as the statute provides the defendant pay our fee. Sometimes, the harder they fight, the harder the fall.”
The mass tort cases are when multiple people are injured by the same product and Mr. Brown likes to view himself as a pioneer in birth control litigation. He filed the first battery of cases against the makers of Nuvaring for what he alleged was a product which caused a disproportionate amount of blood clots. Similarly, Mr. Brown has helped many women with their cases against Bayer for the use of Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella and Gianvi alleging it caused embolic events like deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms, heart attacks, stroke, blindness and death. “As a Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Gianvi, DVT, PE, stroke, death, blindness] Yasmin lawyer, I still believe that there is no need for these new generation products, when the earlier generations were safer.” Other products Mr. Brown is handling or investigating include asbestos injuries like mesothelioma, transvaginal mesh revision surgery, alleged Da Vinci Robot injuries, and metal on metal hip revisions.
