No. 1 Rising Star | Federal & State Criminal Defense | Professional License Defense
Life and legal experience give Jonathan Rose a unique perspective on his clients’ problems, as well as the legal issues facing them. Jonathan attended college at Western Kentucky University, graduating magna cum laude. He went on to attend the University of Miami School of Law, graduating cum laude. During college and law school, Jonathan served in the Marine Corps Reserve for six years in infantry and ANGLICO units, attaining the rank of Sergeant and being twice decorated.
After law school, Jonathan was an assistant state attorney in Orange and Osceola counties, prosecuting a wide variety of crimes. After three years, Jonathan practiced in complex civil litigation, representing numerous Fortune 500 companies and other institutional clients. But while this experience was invaluable to honing his skills, he returned to his passion – the courtroom – and began defending the rights of those whose lives and careers are threatened by the government.
Jonathan’s practice has evolved to include a nationwide federal criminal practice, white collar defense, and a general criminal practice. Jonathan’s cases have run the proverbial gamut, representing clients accused of embezzlement, money laundering, wire, mail, tax, and securities fraud, drug trafficking, sex crimes, and violent crimes. This breadth of experience has allowed him to work with nationally recognized experts in firearms forensics, psychiatry, and sex offenses.
Jonathan also applies his legal acumen to the defense of Florida’s lawyers, doctors, and nurses facing administrative complaints. Jonathan has successfully represented professionals charged with various forms of misconduct, including unlicensed practice, impaired practice, sexual misconduct, criminal charges arising from the performance of their professional duties, as well as a host of other allegations.
Jonathan has developed a reputation, as stated by a colleague, as an “…excellent lawyer. Professional. Yet aggressive. Very focused and tries to think outside the box.” It is this reputation that has earned Jonathan Martindale Hubbell’s highest possible rating, AV, for legal acumen and ethical conduct. This rating is bestowed on less than five percent of all lawyers. Jonathan has also been selected as member of the National Trial Lawyers Top 100.
Jonathan is a passionate advocate who firmly believes in the rights bestowed upon us by the United States and Florida constitutions. In essence, we all have a right to a defense if we are accused of a crime or some other misconduct. Jonathan believes in not only a defense, but a zealous, determined effort. “It is the essence of a lawyer’s duty to do everything possible to improve a client’s position within the bounds of the law and ethics – to leave no stone unturned. And that is what I do.”
