Jonathan joined the Connors Morgan team as an Associate Attorney in June of 2019. He graduated magna cum laude and holds his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Law from Western Carolina University and his law degree from Elon University School of Law. He concentrates his practice in the areas of general business, contract-drafting, and commercial real estate, representing both buyers and sellers in land and asset purchase transactions. Jonathan is near completion of his Master of Business Administration degree and enjoys advising his clients as to both the legal and transactional implications of their business decisions.
While in law school, Jonathan performed his legal residency at Carruthers & Roth, PA, a highly-respected firm in Greensboro, where he collaborated with a team of over thirty attorneys on cases varying from complex business litigation to estate planning and administration. He participated in Elon’s Small Business and Entrepreneurship Clinic where he retained low-income clients at no cost and assisted them in forming the companies of their dreams, obtaining trademarks and copyrights to protect their work, and in drafting a variation of client contracts. Jonathan spent the latter portion of his legal education as a law clerk at The Carroll Companies, working closely with General Counsel in drafting and negotiating multi-million dollar contracts for the purchase of land, construction of multi-family homes, and the opening of the company’s first-ever franchised hotel in downtown Greensboro.
