Jonathan D. Porter is a rising star in family law, and has quickly established himself as an authority in bankruptcy issues. Jon is a Senior Associate Attorney and heads up the Firm’s law and motion practice, one of the most active in the State. Jon’s strong interest in family law comes from witnessing people not getting a fair shake in our State’s domestic courts.  Jon has coined the phrase “courteously aggressive” when describing how he thinks an attorney should represent his or her client. Jon is well traveled, speaks Japanese, and can tell you best hole-in-the-wall Sushi places to eat should you ever find yourself in Tokyo.
