Palliative Care – 1/18/2023
January 18 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 amFree
Welcome to CCSP/Palliative Care Grand Rounds
The Palliative Care and Comprehensive Cancer Support Programs (CCSP) co-organize weekly presentations on the care of seriously ill patients and their families, including individuals living with cancer, relevant to interdisciplinary clinicians. Individual topics address pain and symptom management, communication approaches with patients and families, strategies to facilitate coping and support, quality improvement and research in these disciplines.
Jason D. Jones, MD, FAAFP
Estate Planning (Read: Preventative Medicine)
Jones Collaborative Estates was created from Jason’s experience-born desire to help families preserve money and relationships by avoiding estate lawsuits. The proverb “knowing what is enough is wealth” is instructive in these cases because without defining what is enough, human tendency is that nothing ever will be enough. Unresolved issues of “enough” (enough money, enough control, enough closure, enough justice) underlie almost every dispute.
What is enough for you?
Prior Work History
Jason spent his first 6 years in practice as a “civil litigator” (non-criminal lawsuits). His cases involved negotiating, litigating, and appealing cases in the fields of estates, personal injury, employment law, insurance law, and civil rights. While in law school (UNC) Jason served as research assistant to John V. Orth and interned at the North Carolina Supreme Court (Justice Paul Newby). Jason also worked for several years assisting in the development of the UNC Cancer Pro Bono Project, a free legal services clinic providing estate planning documents to oncology patients at UNC.
Jason is admitted to practice in all North Carolina state, federal and tribal courts (as well as the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit). He is an active member of the North Carolina Civil Collaborative Law Association and the Estate Planning and Fiduciary Law section of the North Carolina Bar Association (where he serves on the Legislative Committee). Jason also serves as Vice Chair to the 18th Judicial District’s Mentor Committee. Jason has been a lecturer and manuscript author for the National Business Institute for many years, teaching on dozens of occasions to attorneys, paralegals, and CPAs regarding issues of estate, trust and probate related law.
Jason is honored to hold of counsel status at both McCuiston Law Offices, PLLC in Cary, North Carolina as well as Galbraith Law in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Jason’s role at these firms exposes him to mentorship from more experienced attorneys (see below) in matters including tax, high net worth planning, and business transaction work.
Personal & Community Involvement
Jason graduated from UNC Chapel Hill School of Law and completed his undergraduate studies at NC State (Philosophy, English, History). Jason grew up in Raleigh and has lived in Orange County since 2011. Outside the office he can often be found piloting the family canoe with wife, sons, and dogs, or playing in various Triangle and Triad church music ensembles (French horn). In his 20’s Jason was an avid rock climber, triathlete, and bike tourist; while he doesn’t do those activities at the same level anymore, he enjoys dabbling in all of them as time allows.
The School of Medicine of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
