Saar attended high school in Anaheim and after graduating attended the University of Southern California with a major in Political Science and a minor in Cinema television. Saar graduated USC with honors,cum laude, and was also awarded with the prestigious Outstanding Senior Recognition award from USC. While growing up in Orange County, Saar decided early on to pursue practicing law as a family friend attorney sparked his interest.

After accepting a partial scholarship to Southwestern University School of Law, Saar graduated near the top of his class, excelling in both the Interscholastic Trial Advocacy program, and as the notes and comments editor for the Journal of Law and Trade in the Americas. While at Southwestern, Saar received the American Jurisprudence Book Award and the CALI Excellence for the Future award, both recognizing the highest marks obtainable in two of his classes. While competing on the interscholastic trial advocacy team, Saar received several awards as an outstanding advocate in competition throughout the United States. Shortly after graduating from Southwestern Law school and taking the California bar examination, Saar decided to move to Chicago Illinois and practice law in the Windy City.

After a few years of bitter cold, and despite obtaining his license to practice law in Illinois, Saar decided to move back to be near his parents and siblings in California. Upon his return, Saar worked for a renowned bankruptcy and litigation firm as an attorney practicing real estate and trustee litigation in federal court, representing trustees in bankruptcy. Shortly thereafter, Saar moved to a firm that represented victims of asbestos exposure. It was during this time that Saar found his true passion for helping those who could not help themselves. Saar truly enjoyed the opportunity to fight for injured individuals against large multinational corporations, with great success. In 2004, Saar was a member of a trial team that obtained a $36 million jury verdict later named the 48th largest verdict in the United States for 2004.

In 2008, Saar joined forces with Jason Cohn, a longtime friend and fraternity brother to start Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. It was at that time that the duo decided to create a firm that would not accept simply being “good.” Jason and Saar were determined to be great: great lawyers, great listeners and obtaining great results. Today, and every day, Jason and Saar continue to strive for greatness; our clients deserve nothing less.
