Attorney Jordan L. Donaldson built Donaldson Law with one mission in mind: To operate a law firm that is 100% focused on client relationships and geared toward performing legal work with a high level of skill, proficiency, and meticulous care. Clients trust Jordan to listen to their needs and to deliver expert, objective advice. He is deeply passionate about the law and the legal system, and dedicated to serving his clients as an effective counselor.
Before starting his career as an attorney, Jordan’s passions for hobbyist programming and problem solving led him to start a successful Information Technology firm. For six years, Jordan worked with clients ranging from local small business owners to one of the largest law firms in America. Jordan’s past experience with managing complex technical projects for a wide variety of clients gives him unique perspective and insight in his law practice. Jordan is fluent in numerous programming languages, and most recently has focused his efforts on creating web applications which use Rails to deliver data to AngularJS via REST APIs.
In his spare time, Jordan enjoys reading, cooking out, drinking good Scotch, playing guitar, and watching Formula 1, College Football, and Premier League Soccer.
Jordan graduated cum laude from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Real Estate. He attended all four years on a full academic scholarship and received Dean’s List honors recognition during multiple semesters. He graduated at the top of his class in the FSU College of Business’ highly-ranked Real Estate Program and shortly thereafter received the professor-nominated Real Estate Graduate of the Year Award for overall academic performance. During his time at FSU, Jordan was active in the College of Business’ Real Estate Society.
Jordan went on to graduate from the Florida State University College of Law, where he was awarded the WP & Erin Shelley Academic Scholarship and again received Dean’s List honors recognition on multiple occasions. During law school, he was invited to join the Phi Delta Phi Honors Fraternity and was active in the school’s Student Bar Association. Jordan’s upper-level law school studies focused on all aspects of business, estate planning, and intellectual property law in addition to general civil trial practice. He focused his upper-level research and writing on copyright law inefficiencies and reform.
