Meet Jonah Wolfson, Esq., a Miami native with a rich and diverse background. Raised in the vibrant city of Miami, Florida, Jonah's journey in education began locally, attending high school in his hometown. Subsequently, he ventured to Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, where he majored in English. During his college years, Jonah took on an extraordinary experience by working on a commercial fishing boat in Gloucester, Massachusetts, to support his studies financially. After graduating from Boston College, he embarked on a soul-enriching journey, spending nearly five months hiking the scenic Appalachian Trail. This adventure provided him with valuable life lessons and shaped his character profoundly. His next endeavor led him to pursue a legal education at Chicago-Kent College of Law. During his time in law school, Jonah interned at the Cook County Office of the Public Defender, honing his skills and trying numerous cases to verdict. It was in Chicago where he also found love and met his now-wife, Andrea. After completing his legal studies, Jonah returned to his roots in Florida, passing the bar exam on his first attempt. Since then, he has been passionately practicing personal injury law, representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants in various complex tort cases, such as wrongful death, car accidents, motorcycles, slip and fall, negligent security, medical malpractice, and legal malpractice. However, his true calling lies in advocating for the rights of victims of negligence, and he has exclusively represented Plaintiffs who have suffered due to others' negligence since 2005. Before dedicating himself to Plaintiff representation, Jonah gained valuable experience at Valle, Craig, Sioli, and Lynott, PA, where he worked as a litigation attorney, handling insurance defense cases for over three years. Beyond his legal career, Jonah is deeply committed to public service. In 2007, he was elected to the Miami Beach City Commission, where he took on various leadership roles, including chairing the Land Use, Finance, Flooding, and Sustainability Committees. Moreover, he spearheaded the "Let Miami Beach Decide" campaign, which successfully opposed a mega development on public land through strategic petition gathering efforts and litigation. Jonah's passion for public service extends to representing victims of overdevelopment, such as condo associations or residents, reinforcing his dedication to advocating for those in need.
