About Jonathan

Learn Jonathan’s areas of practice.

Jonathan King is a passionate and skilled attorney. Jon loves pouring his energy into helping people most in need find hope and justice.

Jon began his legal career representing large corporations, first at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and then at Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher. Dissatisfied representing corporate interests, Jon switched course. He worked as a criminal defense lawyer for many years, where he gained extensive trial experience, before switching to personal injury law.

For the past seven years, Jon has represented injured people against insurance companies and corporations, trying numerous cases to verdict. For Jon, representing injured people is about helping them get fair and just compensation for what was taken from them.

But just as importantly, it’s about holding insurance companies and other corporate wrongdoers accountable for their actions. To do this, you must be willing to fight on principle, and Jon is. This means being willing to take cases to trial, air the dirty laundry, and allow jurors to use their life experience and common sense to see through defense-lawyer smokescreens to hold insurance companies accountable.

Jon relishes a principled fight. He was trained at two of the most rigorous trial-skill development programs in the country: the National Criminal Defense College and Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College.

Experienced & Hard-Working - Gets Results
I was in a car accident back in 2019, and the driver who hit me was uninsured. I have had 2 previous back surgeries, and this car accident is now causing me to have a 3rd. I contacted Jonathan and he took my case. He not only helped me to get a significant settlement with the uninsured driver (which he did not have to do since this was a case through City Court) but he was able to secure a significant settlement for me through my own insurance company. Jonathan always kept in touch with me and was wonderful about answering my questions. He was always super responsive to my emails and phone calls. Jonathan worked hard and was able to secure a settlement for me in a surprisingly short time frame. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone. He is hardworking, knowledgeable, and very kind and understanding. I would definitely hire him again if I needed an attorney.

Measured and thoughtful
About a year and a half ago I was hit by a drunk driver and sustained some pretty serious and potentially life-altering injuries. I had a number of phone consultations with lawyers throughout the state (prioritizing competence over geographic proximity). A number of other lawyers I spoke to sounded perfectly competent, but Jon struck me as particularly thoughtful, measured, and precise in his thinking. So I ultimately chose him and am glad I did. All I can say is that my initial impression of Jon was pretty on point. He is measured and patient in his approach to litigation, which (I think) is an absolutely crucial attribute of a personal injury lawyer, where there is the temptation to get a bit overly aggressive with the opposition and signal impatience, which then might lead to easier, quicker--but ultimately smaller settlements. Point being, Jon is cerebral, patient, and plays the long game. Further, and maybe most importantly, his ability to formulate strong and well-researched arguments is top-notch. My case was a bit complicated, with a number of moving parts and policies. But throughout the year-or-so process, Jon went up against the legal departments of two big insurance companies, putting forward arguments that were strong enough to get both to fully capitulate (even in a case that was as anything but cut-and-dried as mine was). There was, however, one negative point with Jon I should mention in fairness. In the little of a year long period I worked with Jon, there was a two-to-three week period where for the life of me I could not get a hold of him. I left numerous voicemails, messages with the secretary, etc, but no luck. After writing an email to him him he promptly responded and explained that he was in the midst of a court-proceeding which was pretty much all-consuming. As demanding as they are, I understood and held nothing against him. (I even debate whether I should include this in my review, but hey, full disclosure.) And after that two/three week lapse of communication he was super prompt in getting back to me and keeping in touch. All in all, being the tough grader that I am, I'd give Jon a 9.5/10....meaning he's a mere half-point away from being a flawless and ideal attorney to have on your side. I would not only recommend, but *urge* any friend or family to hire Jon.

The Go To Attorney
The world is often ugly and unfair when you have been injured by someone else. Facing the huge Goliath insurance companies and corporations alone is not the answer. Jonathan King is. He has the experience, resources and connections that an injured individual needs to make it through the maze of the personal injury legal system. Jonathan comes from a family of law, representing those who could not do so themselves. One of the few, he stands up for the little guy and represents them with vigor, passion and technique. He handled my personal injury case with integrity, honesty and energy. Jonathan was knowledgeable about the actual worth of my case and the hurdles we would face. His knowledge of the players and places in the personal injury game was impressive. In the end, we did come out on top due to his diligence and expertise. If you think you may have a case, Jonathan is the first person you want to review your possibilities.

Best attorney ever!!
Jon is the real deal and I'm so glad he was my attorney. He truly cared about me and my case, which was very important to me. Once we got to court, I was even more thankful to have Jon. Jon is very good in court and he blew the opposing attorney out of the water. I couldn’t be happier with the results of my case

I had the pleasure of having Jonathan King as my attorney. When I first met him I felt comfortable with him and it was easy to build a rapport. Jonathan was ethical at all times. He asked thorough and pertinent questions. He is able to communicate effectively and I felt I could share my information openly and honestly with Jonathan. He answered my questions with experience, knowledge, and understanding. He gave me stategic advice, was prompt and courteous when returning my phone calls, and had an open line of communication with me. I feel he truly cares for individuals and fought on my behalf.
