Jonathon Carlson joins Tschetter Sulzer as an experienced trial attorney. Prior to joining the Firm, he primarily practiced juvenile, criminal, and domestic relations law. In 2013, Jonathon was nominated for and awarded Jefferson County’s prestigious George Holley Outstanding Young LawyerAward. His experience with litigation involving family law provides him with the skills and knowledge to artfully negotiate agreements and issues between landlords and tenants, which makes him a valuable asset to both the ‘TS’ Team and the Firm’s clients.
Growing up in Michigan as the oldest of three boys, Jonathon was unwittingly honing his mediation and litigation skills from a young age. He recognized his passion for the law while attending the University of Arizona where he graduated Cum Laude with a BA degree in Political Science. He returned to his home state to attend Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Michigan where he became a Dean’s Scholar. During law school, Jonathon interned with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Division and also with one of the Wayne County Criminal Division Judges. Additionally, throughout much of his law school graduate studies, he law-clerked at a private law practice. In combination, these valuable experiences provided him with the important insight into the difference a good attorney can make to in the lives of his clients. This insight instilled in him a core commitment to always aggressively advocate for his clients and to consistently pursue ways to hone his legal skill set.
The Firm’s legal team, as well as our clients, benefit from Jonathon’s years of experience negotiating intense, personal legal conflicts under pressure in difficult situations. When asked what led him to join the ‘TS’ team, Jonathon said, “I like the variety of challenges to my legal abilities that the Firm offers. I don’t want to be a lawyer who just sits in an office dispensing legal advice for five days per week. I love meeting with clients and the challenge of dealing with the diversity of legal issues that ‘TS’ clients deal with, as well as going to court in a different county every day. The bottom line is that I get a lot of personal satisfaction from helping clients prevail in legal actions that help and protect their business.”
When he’s not in court or at the office working with clients, Jonathon enjoys spending time in the outdoors hiking, camping, and enjoying an assortment of winter sports with his wife, Danielle. You can often catch him hitting the slopes at Winter Park, mixing it up with both skis and snowboard.
