Jonah always knew he wanted to make a positive change in his community.

Jonah initially thought he might follow in his mother’s footsteps as an English teacher, but decided he could also make a lasting impact on people’s lives as an attorney.

Active during law school in the Student Bar Association, Jonah made sure he fought for an equitable distribution of seats on the board that sufficiently included diverse students. He also worked to ensure that the school would not increase tuition and that key professors were retained.

Jonah became interested in product liability work because he realizes the degrees of risk involved in being an inventor and innovator. His goal is to be an effective counselor who can help the entrepreneurial process along.
