Jason R. Carpenter

Founding Attorney

The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter represents clients in the Central Pennsylvania counties around Harrisburg, including Dauphin, York, Lancaster, and Huntington. Attorney Carpenter considers his practice to what he calls a "Main Street" law office. While focused mostly on divorce, custody, and criminal matters, he always tells his clients to come to him first and "if I cannot do it, I know who can." His aim is to become his client's attorney for life, not just for one specific legal action.

Having graduated from Widener University Delaware Law School, he decided to become an attorney with the mindset that he could change the face of modern legal services. He has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and knew he could provide the best service to his clients if he could do it his way rather than follow the traditional law firm business model. Most clients hate being nickel and dimed for contacting their attorney and Attorney Carpenter does not like watching a clock while trying to solve your legal issue. While he does offer traditional hourly billing upon client's request. Attorney Carpenter will provide an estimate and one price for his service. The old ways of being practicing law are dead, and The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter is at the forefront of new legal technologies and ways of making your experience as a client the best it can be.

Attorney Carpenter believes the most important aspect of being an excellent attorney is making clients secure and reassured about their situation. "They know they've got someone in their corner," he says. Although he lets his client know from the beginning that most criminal cases end in a plea deal instead of going to trial, Jason is never afraid to fight for his clients when it comes to advocacy in the courtroom. His mentality is that "when I put on the suit and tie, I feel like a Roman gladiator, or Iron Man getting ready for combat." While never spoiling for a fight, this firm's motto is "Every Client Matters," which is sacred to him. He focuses on easing his client's worries as well as solving their legal issue. "I am not the type of attorney to run up fees, roll the dice with your life, and then walk away saying ‘ho hum.' I love to fight, but I will not play with your life."

One aspect of his firm that he takes exceptional pride in goes beyond handling typical cases and common legal problems such as divorce, DUI, and estate planning. The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter also practices veterans disability claims. Coming from a military family handling such cases is where a true passion for legal justice lies in the heart of Attorney Carpenter's firm. Helping our veterans receive their VA benefit is a cornerstone of the practice and we are one the few firms in Pennsylvania handling VA benefits claims.
