Jonathan Lester Robert Drewes

About me

  Jonathan L. R. Drewes founded Drewes Law, PLLC in 2008 after representing lenders and insurance companies such as Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., U.S. Bank, N.A., and Citicorp Leasing, Inc., among many others.  Jon focuses his practice toward civil litigation: the art of motion practice and presenting legal arguments in the courtroom. In November 2012, Jon represented a homeowner in a foreclosure dispute in oral argument in front of the Minnesota Supreme Court, and won. This is one of only a handful of cases the Minnesota Supreme Court has reviewed on foreclosure over the past century.

  • Paul H. Weig

    Jonathan Drewes is a tremendous lawyer. His heart is in the right place and he is ready to fight for his clients' cause. Before I came to work with him, I watched him take hard cases and win important victories. His advocacy before the Minnesota Supreme Court in the Ruiz case was responsible for a huge victory for homeowners facing foreclosure. There are quite a few lawyers around who are as smart as Jonathan, but few who can match his creativity and tenacity.
