About Me

I graduated from the UW in 1977 and practiced accouting in Seattle, WA before heading off to law school.  I am an inactive CPA.  I attended the Universtity of San Francisco School of Law and worked for a large law firm in SF during my second and third years of law school. After graduating, I returned to Seattle to practice with my father, Carl Jonson, and my brother Mike.  My father is no longer with us but Mike and I carry on the family tradition. We are third generation lawyers and we take the business very seriously.  We have client relationships that date back to when my father started practicing law in Seattle after WWII.  We have been involved in real estate development and in owing and managing commercial properties. We presently own, manage and have our office in an office building at First and Cedar in the Belltown area of downtown Seattle.  When not working and devoting time to my family, I play competitive golf at the senior lelvel.


I am a general counsel to municipal, for profit and non-profit corporations and attend many board meetings every month. I also do transactional work in the areas noted.
