Jason Halle

Jason Halle was born in Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

After spending a few days in the Big Apple he was whisked out to Long Island where he grew up two blocks from the Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy. Jason’s dad was a patent attorney and his mother was a homemaker. It was a beautiful place to grow up.

When Jason was 17, he moved to his own apartment on East 54 Street in Manhattan.

Jason has lived in many cities in the U. S. including; Philadelphia, Marlton (New Jersey), Scottsdale, Paradise Valley (Arizona), San Francisco, West Hollywood, San Diego and Wilton Manors, Florida, a small city right next to Fort Lauderdale. Jason presently lives in Pompano Beach, Florida, the next city north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Jason Halle had a very eclectic education. He was interested in computer science and attended classes at Hunter College, New York University and at Rutgers University, Camden Campus when he lived in South Jersey. While Jason was living in New York City he wanted to learn more about graphic arts and advertising so he took classes at the Parsons School of Design.

Jason is presently preoccupied with a lawsuit involving his brother Peter Halle since November of 2011. It’s an incredibly stressful situation.

Jason is also writing about the Florida Justice system. The last several years he has spent time in Court as a Pro Se litigant trying to collect an inheritance his father left him. The experience has given him insights that are totally alarming and need to be addressed by the residents of Florida. Basically, if you are not rich and represented, this system is stacked against you.

Recently an investigation has been launched into the Probate Court in Palm Beach. This gives me hope that maybe some of the horrible situations that are taking place each day will be addressed.

Jason expected to find Justice in our Courts and at the Florida Bar Association. Jason has found it a very illusive concept.

My social studies teacher taught me we are all equal in the eyes of the law. The Palm Beach Court has taught me that this is definitely not true.

Jason has had a wonderful life partner for the last 36 years.

  1. Jason, I wish you all the best in your fight. It sickens me that one brother can treat another in this way. It may be tough at the moment but Right is on your side. Never give up, never give in. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

    • Stuart, thank you for your words of encouragement. I am feeling pretty down right now. I know if I keep doing the next right think I will survive this. You are a beautiful person and I appreciate your prayers.

  2. I wish you all the best in this endeavor. But i have a couple of comments. I do not understand the need to include the fact that you are Jewish in the proceedings. If you are Jewish, then so is your brother, correct? If you include it due to the consideration of influencing opinions, the same would be for your brother, correct? Also, try as I can, I really cannot see anywhere that you have detailed the reason(s) your brother initially denied the funds to you, and then continued to do so. Other than making up excuses, what basis for not giving you the money did he use? Was your father’s will not specific as to the distribution of funds? It would seem to me that it should be clear, the last will and testament would state “..$250,000 to Jason Halle upon my death..” etc. Just a couple of comments. Lastly, since funds for additional legal expenses are important, do you have a crowd funding site??

    • David, thank you for all the wonderful feedback. There never was a reason that my brother gave as to why he would not distribute the money. That is one of the serious problems with this case. He and his attorneys mostly kept ignoring my requests, spent almost a quarter of a million dollars in legal fees and got the case dismissed after one of his attorneys lied in court. (I will be putting up a new post later today that will explain this better).

      Yes, there was a legal document drawn up by a Florida Attorney (Ronald Siegel, Esq. of Boca Raton, Florida). It clearly stated that the Trust was to be distributed OUTRIGHTLY (meaning immediately) upon the death of my mother. She passed away on August 15, 2007. That document was filed with the court and never challenged by my brother.

      Maybe I was wrong to introduce the fact that I am Jewish. But your other assumptions are wrong. My brother converted to become a member of the Roman Catholic Church which he used to attend regularly in Washington, DC. I do not believe he is proud of his Jewish background or that he lets people know about it. The Judge and the lawyers that he hired to represent him are all non-Jews. I believed that the fact that I was proud to be a Jew and have my Jewish partner accompany me to court created even further bias against me. Maybe I’m paranoid, but I don’t think so.

      I’d appreciate it if you could send me some guidence on how to set up a crowd funding site. jason@jasonhalle.com

      Thanks, Jason
