Jackson Schmidt

Founding Member

A founding member of PCS, Jackson Schmidt specializes in real estate litigation, commercial litigation and complex tort litigation. He began his legal career as a Judicial Clerk in the Washington Court of Appeals. In 1989, he joined the law firm of Gordon Thomas Honeywell where he became a partner in 1992.

After earning an M.A. in Film Communication and Theatre Arts, Jackson received a J.D. with high distinction, Order of the Coif, from the University of Iowa, where he also served as Associate Editor of the Iowa Law Review from 1986-87. Since he took a somewhat sideways approach to the legal profession, Jackson also has an M.A. in English Literature from Southern Illinois University and a B.A. from Wabash College. He is a member of the King County and Washington State Bar Associations.

He has been a board member of the Pike Place Market Foundation since 1992 and served as co-president from 1995-99.  He has been a council member of the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority since 2004 and served as council chair from 2005-09.  He has been a member of the Mt. Baker Community Club since 1993 and was president from 1995-99.

Jackson occasionally shares his office with a pair of standard poodles who specialize in napping and gnawing and apparently advise him on matters of canine litigation.
