About Me

I am a driven professional, taking the lead when opportunity presents itself. I am goal oriented, open to sharing ideas and developing strategies for the optimization of all interests involved. My professional goal is always to assist parties in achieving the best outcome available for the most concerns involved. Above all, ethics and dare I say morality must be taken into account.


When mediating, I use many different tools and techniques as not every mediation will follow the same track as a another. A good mediator must not only follow the changes which occur in the process but assist the parties in finding a unified direction towards settlement. I guess that you could define me as a "transformative" mediator, in that my techniques will change and adapt to fit the needs of the parties. I draw on a lifetime of experiences and education to find commonality with the concerns and needs of the parties to enable me to empower them with the ability to collectively decide the how the situation should be resolved.


When managing others or subordinates, I garner respect by working with those whom I manage to enforce the fact that I do understand their positions and more importantly, their organizational value. Multifaceted and intelligent, I understand that one person cannot do everything but a good executive and manager should know how to do everything. Furthermore, it is important to understand the level of activity and role of each of the systems which make the whole of any enterprise.

    I highly endorse this lawyer. I witnessed Jonathan at an annual conference of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals - and was overjoyed to meet another lawyer who is the antithesis of those "bad lawyer" jokes. His experience, compassion, background and very presence made me proud to be a member of this profession. His service as a Mediator exemplifies excellence. Jerome Allan Landau

  • Michael Thomas Reese

    Jonathan is a very skilled, experienced and energetic mediator. He has mediated hundreds, if not thousands, of cases for me over the years and I have continued to go back to him because he gets results.
