    I previously worked for Jonn as an associate attorney, and have more recently had the experience of working alongside him as a fellow health care lawyer. Based on these ineractions, I'd say that Jonn’s abilities as a mentor are eclipsed only by his common sense approach to the practice of health law, which in my opinion, is unmatched in the Central Florida community. Jonn is direct, organized, and efficient. As a client, you will find Jonn both engaging and available. As an opposing counsel, you will find him courteous and humble. Jonn is always willing to extend advice to his colleagues, and does not hesitate to offer an opinion, or support, to other lawyers navigating the heavily-regulated world of health care. Jonn is a tremendous lawyer, and a true standout in the health care legal community.
