The people behind our success

Jason Argos

founder & trial counsel

About Jason

Jason graduated from Red Mountain High School in Mesa, Arizona in 2004 and thereafter attended The University of Arizona. During his freshman year at Arizona, Jason walked onto the football team as a Quarterback. In 2008, he graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Communications. Following graduation, he moved back to Southern California and earned his J.D. from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego.

While in Law School, Jason worked as a certified legal intern for the Appeals, Writs and Trials Division of the California State Attorney General’s Office, where he conducted legal research and wrote appellate briefs for the Fourth Appellate District. He also performed five oral arguments in the Fourth District of the California Courts of Appeal. Prior to the Attorney General’s Office, Jason worked as a legal intern for the Tort Litigation Division of the Office of the County Counsel for San Diego County, where he assisted with compliance, discovery and oral argument preparation for Ninth Circuit hearings. Jason was also on the dean’s list and served as the President of the Moot Court Honor Society. He competed in the Cardozo Entertainment Law Moot Court Competition as well as the American College of Trial Lawyers Moot Court Competition.

Jason graduated from Thomas Jefferson a semester early, passed the February 2011 Bar Exam, and began working as a litigation associate for Reback, McAndrews, Kjar, Warford & Stockalper on June 1, 2011. Jason worked for RMKWS for almost five years to the day before joining a large civil litigation practice in Downtown Los Angeles at Sedgwick LLP. Unhappy with the big firm life, on a fortuitous day in November 2016, Jason called a plaintiff’s attorney that he had a tried a case against the year prior. That attorney was Sean Burke. Unbeknownst to Jason at the time, his phone call to Mr. Burke that day would forever alter his career trajectory and life.

In January of 2017, Jason joined the Law Offices of Sean M. Burke, an exclusive plaintiff’s only medical malpractice firm. While working for Mr. Burke, Jason served as lead or co-lead trial counsel on over a half dozen trials and arbitrations. In 2019, Mr. Burke made Mr. Argos his law partner, which led to the formation of Burke | Argos, Trial Attorneys.

In 2022, after Mr. Burke announced his plans to become a full-time mediator, the time came for Jason to open his own law firm in pursuit of becoming one of the top medical malpractice firms in the State of California. 

Jason is admitted to practice before all courts in California and Minnesota. He is extremely active in the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) and the Minnesota Association of Justice. Jason is also an active member of the Board of Directors for the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association (OCTLA), and will be president of this organization in 2030.
