The newest trial lawyer at Hare Wynn is driven by a very personal story. Jonathan’s mother was a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against a pharmaceutical manufacturer after sustaining injuries that could have resulted in her having less time to spend with her children and grandchildren. That story serves as a daily reminder to Jonathan. He realizes that he doesn’t just serve clients. He never forgets that his clients are really mothers, fathers, children and grandchildren–and they need a strong advocate to help them achieve the justice they deserve. He realizes the work he does can make a tremendous difference in their lives and he works hard every day to honor the trust they put in him.
A lifelong resident of Kentucky, Jonathan understands and respects his fellow Kentuckians. He works to ease their fears by creating a road map of their case so that they can feel more comfortable with the process.
Jonathan grew up in Morehead, Kentucky. He obtained his undergraduate degree in philosophy from Morehead State University in 2011, before going on to earn his Juris Doctor from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 2014.
Jonathan met his wife, Meredith, in law school where the two were classmates. When he is not working, Jonathan can usually be found in the kitchen or in front of the grill, cooking for family and friends. He also enjoys golfing and river bank fishing in his spare time.
