Jason B. Aamodt has 20 years of environmental law experience yet he hasn't lost his personal approach. Long case timelines mean clients become like family, with meetings often starting with coffee and ending with hugs. This uncompromising service began when Jason was nine and his family's farm was lost to the three-mile island nuclear incident. Like Alan Kuehner and other advocates who helped restore what was lost, Jason pledged to make a difference in peoples' lives and in our planet.
Jason focuses on both environmental litigation & Indian trust law, where he notably settled the fifth largest ever Indian trust accounting case. Along with helping land-owners remedy their property from pollution, Jason represents tribes on a wide range of issues, including contract review, facilitating business relationships, natural resource protection, and land & financial trust matters. Other accomplishments include him receiving a National Law Journal top-25 jury verdict (2013), certifying the first class action in Oklahoma based on an air dispersion model, and establishing a new cause of action against the United States for Indian Tribes.
As an author, Jason loves writing about his on-going scientific study, including publications on sustainable development and energy use.* Jason also helps raise up the next practicing generation at the University of Tulsa College of Law, lecturing on subjects of International Environmental Law, Water Law, Natural Resource Law, Corporate & Sustainable Responsibility, and International Environmental Law. When Jason was a student, many years ago, earning his Juris Doctorate at TU, he got his start in Indian law when his Dean helped him connect with the Coopopa tribe.
When resting, one can find Jason building his locally-sourced nano-brewery in Norfolk, Arkansas. Otherwise, he's outdoors, as Jason explains, "I am an unreconstructed fisherman, hunter and hiker. If you cannot find me, check the hunting seasons. If there is no hunting season, then check the water level on the Norfork tail water. If it’s not low, I'm walking about somewhere my cell phone won't get reception."
