About Jonathan

Learn Jonathan’s areas of practice.

          Life has taught me there is no substitute for empathy, experience, and hard work in the fight for the rights of the client.  Upon entering private practice, I surrounded myself with a tightly knit group of trial attorneys with over 200 years of combined legal experience. Since then, I have dedicated my career to achieving favorable results for each and every one of my clients. 

          In every case I handle, I strive to develop a personal relationship with my client so that I can fully understand the ramifications of their legal issues on their every day lives.   This knowledge creates a profound sense of duty to my clients and their interests.

          Before creating the McAllister Law Firm, I spent most of my legal career in public service, working for both the Saint Louis County Prosecutors office and the Saint Louis County Public Defenders office.  Not only have these experiences allowed me to cultivate healthy relationships with a variety of prosecutors and judges, they have also provided me with a unique perspective that enables me to aggressively and effectively pursue justice and truth for all of my clients. 

          At the McAllister Law Firm, our mission is the Combining and applying of all these principals to the fullest of our abilities to make things right for each and every client.

Works hard even for small claims
Jon was super helpful in helping me getting my small claim resolved quickly for its full value. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is unsure if they were wronged, or uncertain about whether a small claim is worth pursuing.

Very good for being a fresh Attorney at Law
Jonathan is a very good and upstanding attorney in my view. My son was in an accident after medical cost and everything he waled away with about 6200.00. Jonathan kept look and found a way to come up with another 11,000.00 so yes I think he did a FINE job for us. If I ever need a personal injury lawyer again the only person I will call in the McAllister Law. THANK YOU Jonathan.

easy to talk to and no B.S.!!!
I met Jon through a mutal friend and we set the appointment. When we met I felt very comfortable and relaxed I was able to talk to him about my issue and he told me my options. He didn't try to sugar coat it to get more money out of me (unlike other lawyers). He did everything he said he was going to do in the time frame we agreed upon with no suprise fees!!! I'll recommend him to everyone!

Great Lawyer one that stands out !!!
I was in the process of being unlawfully or lawfully sued, I called Mr. McAllister and he explained to me what was going on. He was very professional and VERY knowledgeable. He kept me up to date throughout the whole proceedings and didn't make any false promises or mislead me in anyway. Both Mr. McAllister and his staff were excellent, I would highly recommend them to anyone and yes by the way we won our case !!!!!!!

Not the best first impression.
I taking back by the way I was treated when I walk into the law firm to meet Jonathan Mc Allister. First he was late for our scheduled appointment. His assistant took me in a meeting room and asked up front for cash even though I haven't met Jonathan in the flesh yet. I politely insisted that I meet the attorney first. Johnathan finally walks in the room and before I could get a word in, he tells me (I want to start by saying I charge $250 an hr.) then he inquired about my case. As I began to explain, I was cut off by Jonathan as he told me that he wants to file countersuits. I had organized a file with evidence that I wanted to show him but I was CONSTANTLY cut off in mid sentences and I could never get a word in. He did not listen to any of my grievances or even had a clue why I was there. He understood the topic and ran from there. He talked so fast and seem so uninterested in what I had to say. I came off as he didn't need my business at all and I was wasting his time. I excused myself and declined any further talk. He walked me to the door in such a dismissive way and said (Bye). I'm happy to say that I have an attorney that listened to me and is well prepared to help me with my landlord issues. If any one have the same experience as I did with Jonathan McAllister, please consult another attorney so that you may see the difference in treatment. Good kid but not the best attorney.
