On multiple occasions, he has been honored as a Super Lawyer/Top 100 for Virginia and received the Top Lawyers award for Coastal Virginia Magazine and CoVaBIZ.

Jonathan is active in the community through the Chesapeake Rotary Club, an organization that supports the local community through annual service projects and fundraisers for various local charities. He is an active member and recently served as the Club’s President for the 2020-2021 year. Some of the local events he has helped manage include the Chesapeake Wine Fest, the Chesapeake Spring Art Festival, Coats for Kids and the Rotary Christmas Parade. While the main charter of Rotary International is to end Polio, the local chapter also focuses on the local community. These local events help make a difference to the citizens in Chesapeake, VA.
