Jonathan M. Sterling is a partner at Saretsky Hart Michaels & Gould PC.

Jonathan is a Southern California native and dedicated UCLA Bruin at heart. While attending UCLA as music major, Jonathan played the euphonium (described by some as the least known instrument in the Western Hemisphere) and his stint as a euphonist for the Bruin Marching Band was unrivaled in duration. After losing a coin toss to the beautiful Michigan native who would later become his wife and mother of his two strikingly handsome sons, Jonathan traded the sunny skies of Los Angeles for the beautiful seasons of the Midwest, graduating from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. While in law school, Jonathan interned for the Honorable Bernard Friedman, Chief Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan and the Honorable Steven Rhodes, Chief Bankruptcy Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan and the presiding Judge for the city of Detroit’s historic bankruptcy. Notably, Jonathan is likely the only attorney in America to have let a Federal Court Judge’s dog run into a crowded courtroom and yelp like bloody murder who lives to tell about it.
