Jason Hones

Partner/Director

He has worked in the legal industry since 1993 and was admitted to practice in 2002. Prior to law Jason worked in the building industry as a carpenter and project manager.

Jason’s practical experience is backed by his specialised planning, environmental and local government experience and knowledge. He regularly appears in the Land & Environment Court and Court of Appeal on a diverse range of issues including Class 1 development appeals, valuation and compensation matters, land contamination, Class 4 civil proceedings and class 5 criminal prosecutions. He currently has a number of local Councils as his clients as well as a broad array of private developers.

Jason has strengths in both negotiation and advocacy. He has an extensive knowledge of planning and environmental law, which, when coupled with his ability to think outside of the square ensures he achieves remarkable, and the best, results for his clients.

When not using his best endeavours to achieve his client’s desires, Jason’s thoughts turn to his other passion, snow skiing. Whether here, or overseas, Jason scours the globe for the best “double black” runs to test his ailing knees.
