Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Nicole B Chafetz

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Especially if you are involved in dependency litigation as a parent. As a former assistant attorney general for the State of Washington, he knows all the in's and out's of dependency law, which is a very esoteric area of legal practice: there are very few attorneys with more than a handful of cases under their belts. I do know about Jonathan's suspension and endorse him despite it. He is an extraordinary lawyer, his clients adore him, and he has never once dropped a legal ball.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in WA, 2010


    This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Jonathan’s comment: “With all due respect to AVVO, and there is very little for their rating system, this suspension was not law related but related to my personal life. I am more than happy to discuss.”
