“Practicing law allows me to do all the things I love: reading, writing, competing and most of all… helping people.”

Jon was admitted to practice law in 2004. After three years of working at Crawford Law Firm he joined Hartung and Schroeder as an associate in 2007. Growing up the son of a college basketball coach, his early law career included work in racing and gaming, NCAA rules and regulations, professional sports and politics. At Hartung & Schroeder, he chose to take a different path with his law career. His caseload often includes matters pertaining to business, family law, civil litigation, criminal matters and mediation. Regardless of the type of case, he believes in helping clients find common ground as they work toward resolution.

In addition to general business law, Jon works with start-ups and new businesses on corporate structure and organization. He provides ongoing counsel to established businesses on a wide range of issues.

Jon attended the University of Kansas on an academic scholarship and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and English literature. He went on to graduate from Drake University Law School with high honors. He competed on Moot Court teams and worked on the Drake Law Review as the articles editor.
