Professional Biography


Jonathan routinely represents clients in general business and commercial litigation, including contract and insurance disputes, complex litigation, and defending consumer class actions and other consumer-protection litigation. Through his work with financial services companies, he has ample experience defending suits brought under federal and state consumer protection statutes. He practices in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts in Georgia and across the Southeast. In addition, he routinely assists clients with issues involving real estate property, including title issues, title clearance, property valuation, landlord-tenant, and ownership disputes.

Jonathan also provides regulatory and business advice to clients. He assists all types of financial services companies, including mortgage originators, mortgage servicers, debt collectors, and personal lenders, with all facets of their business operations. He regularly reviews contracts and offers solutions to clients. In addition, he helps craft policies and procedures, contracts, and operations forms. He also advises clients on compliance issues to avoid regulatory scrutiny and litigation.

Jonathan's areas of focus include assisting clients with issues arising under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). He has handled a number of FCRA cases for clients throughout Georgia and the Southeast, but his representation does not end with the litigation. For every case, he also performs a post-litigation and root cause analysis to ensure that all credit reporting issues have been resolved to prevent repeat disputes. In addition, Jonathan assists clients with identifying and correcting weaknesses in their policies and procedures to ensure that future litigation is minimized. He also assists clients with credit reporting issues and pre-litigation disputes.

In addition to his legal practice, Jonathan is a board member of Paws Atlanta, Georgia's oldest no-kill animal shelter.
