I was born in the mountains outside of Wolf Creek in rural Josephine County. I grew up in Ashland and am a proud graduate of Ashland Middle School and Ashland High School.
I left the Rogue Valley for college and law school at the University of Oregon. After law school, I worked as a judicial law clerk at the Oregon Court of Appeals for the Honorable Ellen Rosenblum, who is now the Attorney General for the State of Oregon. I then took a job at the state public defender's office, where I represented hundreds of criminal defendants and further sharpened my legal skills. I loved my job, but I always missed Southern Oregon.
I created Morningstar Legal Arts for two reasons: I wanted to provide excellent legal representation in Ashland and the Rogue Valley, and I wanted to come back home.
There are some great lawyers in this state, but Ashland is a unique and special place that deserves a truly local option. If you or a loved one are in need of a compassionate and effective legal advocate, please contact my office at 541.482.2533 or Jonah@MorningstarLegalArts.com
