Jason W. Poore joined Ross Feller Casey in February 2021 and focuses his practice on representing clients who suffered catastrophic injuries due to medical malpractice, hospital negligence, defective products, and dangerous premises.
Poore assisted founding partner Robert Ross in obtaining an $18 million recovery on behalf of a child in a case involving a birth injury causing neurologic disabilities.
Before joining Ross Feller Casey, Poore was a partner at a leading regional defense firm where he concentrated on complex medical malpractice actions, construction defect cases, and general litigation matters.
Poore is very involved in the Philadelphia legal community. He served on the Executive Committee of the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association (PBA) and is the creator and chair of the PBA Youth Courts Committee. Youth Courts are student-run disciplinary courts that provide restorative punishments as an alternative to suspension for minor school infractions.
He also served on the Advisory Committee of the Joint State Government Commission, which issued a report on the use and effects of Youth Courts in the education and juvenile justice systems, and their potential implementation across Pennsylvania.
Poore is a prior Board Member and Co-Chair of the Events Committee of The Spruce Foundation, which provides grants to Philadelphia non-profits working to empower at-risk youth.
Poore earned his undergraduate degree cum laude from the University of Delaware, and his law degree from Temple Law School, also cum laude.
He is a member of the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania bar associations and is licensed to practice in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania, and the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
