He represents injured workers in claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Defense Base Act, as well as in personal injury lawsuits. He has served as lead trial and lead appellate attorney on numerous Longshore and DBA cases across the country.
In addition to his practice, Jon is an award-winning legal blogger. His new blog, the Longshore & DBA Review, is the highly-anticipated follow-up to Navigable Waters.
Jon also speaks at professional conferences and contributes scholarly articles on legal developments important to the Longshore community.
