BIO
Founding attorney Jonathan A. Sorkowitz has extensive litigation experience in commercial disputes, insurance coverage, class action matters, antitrust, professional liability, and a wide array of other substantive areas.  Jon formed his own practice in 2020 after a successful career at several esteemed law firms to focus on representing plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes litigation matters, both in business disputes and from the plaintiff’s side.  Jon frequently works in partnership with other attorneys through co-counsel agreements, allowing him to tap in to his network of expert attorneys to provide his clients the best possible representation. He is admitted to practice in New York and Arizona.
