    Jonathan and I studied International Media & Entertainment Law together in London. He was a very astute law student, so it is no surprise he grew into the role of a very skilled attorney. He can be trusted to provide a thorough analysis of complex legal issues in a variety of areas. He is a well-rounded attorney who knows when to settle and when to zealously litigate. Additionally, he conducts himself with integrity and displays genuine reverence for clients, Counsel and the law.
