Partner, C.O.O., Florida Entrepreneur Law, P.A.

During my service to the Business Law Section over the past three years I have witnessed firsthand Jon’s dedication to our profession with the utmost passion, sincerity and discernment that can only come with years of experience as a practicing attorney. I hope that you will take a moment to review his credentials as I know he will be an amazing Florida Bar member, if elected, and one that will effectuate change specific to increasing diversity and inclusion for minorities, women, and the LGBT community. He has my vote. I hope you’ll give him the chance to earn yours.

Suzanne Bogdan, Esq.
Managing Partner of Fisher Phillips

John is an exceptional and highly skilled attorney. I have gotten to know him over the last few years through his volunteer work at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. He is the Chairman of the Government Affairs Committee and serves on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors. He is insightful, asks the right questions, gives excellent advice and always presents a balanced perspective. I think he will serve the Florida Bar well.

Stuart F. Cohen, Esq.
Partner, Conroy Simberg

I have known Jon personally and professionally for nearly ten years. He is an exceptional lawyer with a knack for identifying and resolving the key issues in every case in which we have worked together. I am confident that these skills will continue to serve him well and enable him to be a tremendous asset to the Board.

David M. Adelstein, Esq.
Kirwin Norris

Jon is the hardest working attorney that I know. He exudes professionalism, honesty, class, and a top notch work ethic. He is a true problem solver when dealing with complex business disputes and a great resource.
