Jared Ahern was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Jared went straight through all of his schooling without any breaks. Why? Because Jared has always known this was what he was meant to do. Jared worked full time through all of his schooling, graduated with multiple degrees, and graduated with honors.
After high school in Ahwatukee, he attended Barrett, the Honor’s college, at Arizona State University, where he received two degrees in Political Science and Business Legal Studies. The Fall after he completed his undergraduate studies, he began law school at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
While in law school, Jared was a part of the school’s Lodestar Mediation Clinic where he focused heavily on alternative dispute resolution strategies. Jared then clerked for a civil litigation firm for a year where he spent most of his time involved in motion practice and arbitration. Jared’s work at that firm assisted in the settlement of claims totaling over $1 million.
After passing the bar exam and receiving his license, Jared quickly transitioned into criminal defense. He worked at a small defense firm focusing heavily on DUI defense and other vehicular crimes. Jared left that firm after several years and joined the team at DM Cantor. Once Jared started at DM Cantor he made an immediate impact on the firm’s trial team. He focuses primarily on vehicular and blue collar criminal defense.
Jared married his high school sweet heart while he was in law school. Jared enjoys playing golf and soccer on the weekends, and spends as much time as he can traveling.
