About Jonathan

Learn Jonathan’s areas of practice.

I fight insurnace companies to get money for injured people. I also fight with the government and businesses that are careless and hurt people.

I've successfully handled nearly every type of personal injury case including automobile cases, trucking cases, premises liability cases, medical malpractice cases, product liability cases, intentional tort, cases against governments, municipalities, school districts and other public entities, nursing home cases and elder abuse, sexual assault cases, toxic exposure, food poisoning cases, unfair trade practices, employment discrimination and harassment, wrongful death, bicycle and pedestrian injury cases, cruise ship and airline cases.

I've represented individuals against the largest corporations, including international hotel chains, airlines, and government entities from the City of Los Angeles to the United States of America. I've also handle cases in state court, federal court, and in a tribal court involving an Indian Casino. I've handed cases in other states including federal court in Hawaii and state court in Montana.

Amazing personal injury attorney
Jonathan is smart, knowledgeable, responsive, caring and goes above and beyond to be helpful. I consulted with him about my car accident case and he told me exactly how to deal with the other side's insurance company. I am an attorney myself and am a hard grader- I highly recommend him. He easily stands out from the rest.

I would use him again
Jonathan Howell took my case when the other driver tried to blame me for the car accident and the police didn't know who to believe. My car insurance didn't help. He helped me find a doctor and talked to me throughout the case and told me what was going on. We settled for a fair amount before the trial.

I'm glad that jonathan Howell was my attorney when I had my accident
When I was injured, I ad absolutely no experience with doctors, surgeons, let alone my legal rights or what to expect. Fortunately I had an attorney who took the time to prepare me for the long battles on the legal front, so that I could focus on healing my knee back to 100%. He was very upfront about the long path ahead of me to both heal my knee and receive my compensation. He made sure that I was getting the correct treatments, and in the end, I received compensation that exceeded my expectations. when I would become stressed about the case during the lengthy process, he calmly kept me assured that everything was being taken care of. he also kept me aware of the process as t was happening. Hopefully, I won't suffer another injury on a sidewalk accident, but if I ever do, Jonathan will be my very first call.

Venice CA accident
I contacted Pocrass & De Los Reyes LLP regarding an accident where I was hit by a SUV and I was on a bike. I had heard Jim Pocrass was good with these cases and that many times they blame the person on the bike so that those cases can be difficult. I met with Jonathan Howell who became my attorney. Right away I was pleased with his honest, frank manner and he always informed me of all options while at the same time he left the decisions clearly with me. I was very, very well looked after. I called many times with questions or concerns about the case and he always answered them and listened clearly. I was medically treated and have since made full recovery, the award was fair and justice was served. We did of course win the case which did not have to go to court. I can't thank Jonathan Howell enough!

Represented me in bicycle v auto injury
Jonathan, and everyone at Pocrass, handled my case superbly. From the first meeting he communicated clearly about the process, the options and the outcomes. He clearly explained each step of the process and helped me be prepared for deposition, mediation, etc. I trusted his judgment, and was happy with the eventual settlement. I would absolutely recommend Jonathan for any case, but especially to fellow cyclists, as he showed a real understanding of the sometimes unique problems of cycling on the road.

Endorse Jonathan
Car accident Attorney | Jan 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Jonathan is amazing--as an attorney he is skilled, compassionate, knowledgeable and takes the stress of dealing with insurance companies and opposing lawyers off of you shoulders completely. He is an amazing negotiator--but when it is time to fight--he fights hard for his clients. He knows personal injury so well that he can get payments for a case that other attorneys think is useless. I trust Jonathon--and that is hard to say about lawyers in general--but I trust him completely and he has never disappointed. His results for his clients speak for themselves."
