After a career in the medical field, Jade decided to join forces with his brother, Tom, to provide legal help to those who have suffered personal injury and workers' compensation claims. In 2013, Jade started working with Tom at a large injury law firm as a litigation specialist.
Being the determined person that he is, Jade decided to pursue his law studies at Mitchell Hamline School of Law while maintaining a full-time job. Jade worked tirelessly for many years and was able to successfully balance his full-time job with his studies. Jade attended night classes and studied for long hours in order to keep up with his course load. Jade was able to complete his law degree one year early due to his dedication and hard work.
In 2019, Jade and Tom opened Askeroth Law Group which has now merged with Claggett & Sykes. Joining Claggett & Sykes has allowed Jade to expand his services and provide even more help to those in need.

In 2019, Jade’s son was born with a permanent physical disability. Jade has witnessed the daily challenges that his son faces. This has inspired Jade to be an advocate for those with disabilities.

When he’s not in the office, you can find Jade spending time outdoors with his wife and son- he loves the mountains, fly fishing, and a good baseball game. A great problem solver, Jade is known to always have a weekend home improvement project.
