About Me

Prior to entering the legal profession, Jonathan enjoyed a twenty year career as a development engineer, working for telecommunications companies including Cisco, Alcatel Network Systems, and Codem Systems. Jonathan also developed systems and software as a defense contractor and spent two years developing electronic music software. His broad technical background allows him to grasp intricate technical ideas quickly for application within a legal framework, effectively bridging the communication gap between technical and legal concepts.
