Jonathan recently joined the firm as a technology law attorney. He concentrates his practice primarily in cybersecurity, information privacy/security, software licensing, and government contracting. He is licensed in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
Before joining Vandeventer Black, Jonathan practiced as an attorney primarily in state government. While in state government, he helped develop New Hampshire’s strategic plan to address cybercrime. He has also worked as a consultant to provide strategic planning for the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task forces throughout the country. Most recently he was an attorney for New Hampshire’s largest state agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, where he represented the Department in all matters related to procurement and contracting and was responsible for overseeing its centralized contracting unit. His background in state government and project management gives him unique insight and experience in procurements and contracting, including complex information technology contracts, software development projects, information privacy and security issues, health care law, and federal grants.
An experienced litigator, Jonathan spent the first years of his career in criminal law, both as a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney. He was an adjunct instructor at the New Hampshire Police Standards and Training Academy and has provided instruction to law enforcement officers on various subjects including courtroom testimony regarding computer forensics, criminal law, motor vehicle law, and search and seizure. He has significant courtroom experience and has argued before the New Hampshire Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Presently, Jonathan teaches business law online for Southern New Hampshire University and has taught courses on constitutional law, criminal law, critical thinking, and has lectured on identity theft, cyber security and computer forensics.
Jonathan is originally from New Jersey, and attended Rutgers University where he received his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and was a George H. Cook Scholar. He attended the University of New Hampshire Law School and lived in New Hampshire for over 25 years before moving to Norfolk. In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys sailing, kayaking, and hiking.
