Jason Williams is running for DA in Orleans Parish. Jason is a native of Uptown New Orleans, graduated from the prestigious Woodward Academy in College Park, GA – formerly the Georgia Military Academy – and entered Tulane University where he earned a full football scholarship before matriculating to Tulane Law School. While at Tulane Law School, he was presented with the prestigious Order of Barristers honor and he began practicing law at Criminal District Court through the law school’s clinic program, even though still a student.
After graduation in 1997, Williams worked with the law firms of Gertler, Gertler, Vincent, and Plotkin, and Spears & Spears, but within two years, he started his own practice and quickly gained a reputation as one of the fiercest trial attorneys in the City of New Orleans. After winning a series of high profile criminal cases, Williams was appointed to serve as a State court Judge at Criminal District Court by the Louisiana Supreme Court, making him the youngest district judge in the City’s history. After his tenure as Judge, Williams returned to his vigorous practice of handling a variety of high profile cases in state and federal courts.
Year after year, Williams’ tireless efforts on behalf of the accused resulted in wins for clients that a less determined advocate would have certainly attempted to plead out. His ability to take and win “unwinnable” criminal cases continued to result in not guilty verdicts in many highly publicized trials. Williams also worked to exonerate and free the wrongfully convicted through his pro-bono work with the Innocence Project, including State v. Greg Bright and State v. Earl Truvier. In addition, Williams also served on the Louisiana State Indigent defender Board’s Director Selection Committee and has also worked as a Professor at Tulane Law School.
