• Jon was part of a two-man team that received a unanimous jury verdict in a five-week trial in Houston federal court. They represented an oil operating company against its insurer for breach of contract and violations of the Texas Prompt Payment of Claims Act. Jon conducted voir dire, examined witnesses, and drafted multiple trial and post-trial motions and briefs. The oil operating company received $25.4 million in damages and $6.25 million in attorneys’ fees and costs after appeals to the Fifth Circuit were exhausted.

• Jon obtained a dismissal for a client who had been sued in a bankruptcy adversary proceeding for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Jon then successfully briefed and argued this case on appeal to the 8th Circuit B.A.P., which ruled in favor of his client.

• Jon litigated a multi-million dollar tort, bankruptcy, and adversary proceeding in the state and federal courts of New York and the Delaware bankruptcy court, saving his client tens of millions of dollars sought in a clawback action.

• Jon defended a restaurateur in a breach of contract lawsuit resulting in all claims against his client being dismissed at no cost.

• Jon obtained a termination of a client’s proposed debarment by the Defense Logistics Agency in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

• Jon’s client had been sued in Texas and an injunction taken against him, even though the client lived and conducted business in Tennessee.  Jon had the entire case against his client, including the injunction, dismissed with prejudice.

• Jon was part of a two-man team who tried a divorce case on behalf of Wife, in which the judge ordered that the Husband’s company be fully awarded to Wife.

• Jon obtained a six-figure settlement for a woman injured in a slip-and-fall in Dallas County, Texas.
