Innovative Problem Solver
Jonathan is a man of his word and a very skilled lawyer. He is very busy and “in demand.” That is perhaps his only downfall, although understandable for excellent representation at affordable rates. Jonathan helped us to negotiate a better settlement for our business, and he is fair and honorable above all else.
