Jason Hickman, Compton & Duling

Chances are, if you ask someone in Prince William County if they know Jason Hickman, Compton & Duling’s Managing Partner, the answer is going to be yes.  Jason is currently, or has recently been, on the Board of no fewer than six local organizations, including the Chairman of the Board of Regents for Leadership Prince William, the President of the Prince William County Regional Board of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, the President of the Lake Ridge Rotary Club, and a Board Member for the Hylton Performing Arts Center, the Hispanic Organization for Leadership and Action (HOLA), and active involvement with several other community groups, including the Prince William Bar Association, Trinity Episcopal Church, the International Code Council, and the Prince William Chamber of Commerce.

Hickman also manages the administration of the law firm, and recently won the SmartCEO Cornerstone Award for his work at the firm and in his community.  When asked what advice he would give to other business owners, Jason said: “Volunteer in organizations whose mission is part of your passion. Be an example of leadership for your children. Have positive interactions with everyone you meet. Strive to make a difference for one person every day.”

Everyone seems to know Jason, whether through his work for them as clients or through his tireless representation on community boards and in local events.  Jason joined the firm in 2006, and his wife Sarah Pitkin’s family has owned the local Pitkin’s ACE Hardware stores on Dale Boulevard and on Route 234 for decades.   Jason’s practice began as a litigation practice, and over time has become a more business and land-use oriented practice, representing business owners in their day-to-day needs, as well as in larger merger and acquisition issues, and representing developers and property owners in their zoning and land use matters.

“Working with business owners and property developers in Prince William County gives me a broad range of opportunities to help my clients grow their businesses, which in turn brings growth and economic benefits to our community,” Hickman said.

Jason works closely with Compton & Duling’s Land Planner, Sherman Patrick, to provide a whole scale approach to zoning and land use issues, combining Sherman’s depth and background knowledge in zoning matters with Jason’s legal representation before both the County and the courts on land use issues.

“Sherman and I enjoy the challenge of bringing our clients’ zoning matters before the County and working with County staff and the Board of Supervisors to achieve excellent solutions for our clients’ land use needs.”
