In this role, Jared served as the county’s Chief Legal Officer, overseeing the work of 55 attorneys, six special investigators and 24 staff spread across five bureaus. Nassau is the second largest county in New York by population outside of New York City, with an annual operating budget of more than $3 billion.

He also served as lead strategist and negotiator in the resolution of a 14-year-long fair housing lawsuit. Jared served as a Harris Beach partner from 2014 to 2017 before accepting appointment as Nassau County Attorney.
Jared is the third new attorney to join the Harris Beach Long Island office this year as the firm expands to meet demand for legal and professional services related to project development, health care compliance, commercial litigation and other matters. The other new attorneys include partner Roy Breitenbach, leader of the Harris Beach Health Care Industry Team; and senior counsel Daniel Hallak, member of the health care and business and commercial litigation teams.
