Jason Borntreger


Jason brings to the firm years of legal experience in business, real estate, contract, and education litigation, matters often disputed in family law cases. Complex divorces typically involve nuanced issues such as the valuation and transfer of corporate shares and real estate, interpretation and enforcement of contracts, and children’s educational rights, subject matters which Jason has practiced extensively for the past decade. Jason has captained litigation ranging from miniscule to mammoth--from multimillion-dollar suits with statewide effects, to hyper-technical real estate and transactional matters, to back-alley rumbles over the rights of real people and real families. Throughout, the mantra has never changed: Learn, prepare, and fight to win.

Jason prides himself on his meticulous preparation and exceptional written advocacy, skills which have earned him success both in and out of the courtroom. Jason provides his clients with easy to understand legal explanations, and takes great joy in guiding clients through the difficult problems inherent in many family law matters.

Prior to practicing law, Jason grew up in a family of farmers, tradespeople and voracious readers. A native of rural Illinois, Jason spent his youth rooted in farmlands, construction sites and factories of the Midwest, all enlightened by the power of education and the written word. To that end, Jason's practice is influenced by beliefs in not only the power of hard work and efficiency, but in integrity, curiosity, and the eternal pursuit of personal growth.

After graduating from Valparaiso University and the Florida State University College of Law, Jason dedicated himself to a decade of public service, throwing himself into anything that a given public agency or pro bono group would allow. Beyond the practice of law, Jason is warmly dedicated to his family, pets and adopted home in Tallahassee. He and Rachel are ardent supporters of the local art and music community, both personally and through the firm, and Jason himself is an enthusiastic outdoorsman, woodworker and musician.

A longtime member of the local legal community, Jason serves or has previously served in capacities that include:

Is Borntreger Law Right For You?

As a child of divorce herself, Rachel understands firsthand how divorce can impact children. Divorce doesn’t have to damage a child. In fact, Rachel’s blended family was vital in growing the person she is today: while her mother and father taught her diplomacy and self-advocacy, her stepparents taught her kindness and compassion. She wants her client’s children to have the same experience, by helping reduce spousal conflict and empowering clients to begin anew in a positive direction.

Solution-driven and analytical in nature, Rachel applies her legal and financial background to find real, working solutions for clients. More than your lawyer, Rachel brings a collective of practical, legal, and emotional skillsets to your side.
