Minneapolis, MN divorce attorney Jonathan J. Fogel has extensive experience handling divorces involving complex marital estates, spousal maintenance, custody, and post decree matters. After a decade of practice, he founded his own law firm so that he could provide a "team" approach to Minnesota family law for his clients by offering a network of professionals that can assist with issues ranging from finances to counseling. Jonathan writes articles and provides lectures on a variety of topics including divorce, custody, child support, spousal maintenance, paternity and other issues related to family law. He has appeared on local television as a family law expert, and has been on several local and national radio talk shows.
Jonathan strongly believes the job of a family law attorney is to provide expert legal advice as well as the necessary tools to transition into the next stage of life.
As the host of myTalk 107.1's Family Affairs radio show, Jonathan educated the public on family law and answered questions live on the air. Jonathan also wrote and published the book Preparing for Divorce While Happily Married; Tips from a Divorce Lawyer which offers insight into the process of divorce. He also publishes his articles on HuffingtonPost.com.
Jonathan is also a Qualified Rule 114 Neutral.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Reprimand/probation means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. The State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Jonathan’s comment: “This reprimand resulted from the behavior of a former employee of the law firm.”
