Jonathan’s skills include representing the financial services industry in a wide variety of securities and insurance related cases.
Jonathan is a partner at Saretsky Hart Michaels + Gould PC. Jonathan is a Southern California native and dedicated UCLA Bruin at heart. 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.
For more than a decade now, Jonathan has honed his skills representing the financial services industry in a wide variety of securities and insurance related cases across the country in state and federal courts and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrations and regulatory matters. Jonathan also regularly advises clients with respect to issues with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), FINRA and state regulators. Closer to home, Jonathan handles civil and probate litigation matters throughout the State of Michigan. Jonathan prides himself on his ability to fix problems and clean up messes. He loves the thrill of each new case and making himself an expert in the subject matter.
