About me

Jon has been a strong advocate for his clients in the areas of Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury, since joining the firm in 1998. In 2005, Washington Law Magazine's extremely competitive Rising Stars program recognized Jon as one of the state's brightest young lawyers in the field of workers' compensation. He has also been honored with the chairmanship of the Washington State Bar Association's Trial Advocacy Program for three consecutive years, helping dozens of young attorneys gain experience representing clients in the courtroom. A member of the Washington State Bar Association, the King County Bar Association, Washington State Trial Lawyers Association, and National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives, he received his J.D. from Seattle University in 1998. In addition to a passion for personal injury law, Jon enjoys an active outdoor lifestyle with his wife and four children.

  • Steven L Shaw

    Jon's great. He's personable and tough, if that's even possible. I've watched him in action at trial, and he is a rare talent when it comes to connecting with others in the courtroom. A tireless advocate with a wealth of experience and knowledge about Workers Compensation, Disability, and Personal Injury cases.
