A Different Approach
“We’re all part of that entity that keeps the ship going.” – Jonathan W. McConnell
Jonathan W. McConnell, founding attorney at the McConnell Law Firm, believes it is his job to protect individuals and ensure their rights when everyone turns their back. “Helping people is my passion,” said Jon. “Not only do we fix the issue, but hopefully put them in a good position so that life can go on and they don’t have to come back to us.”
“I realized, this guy is innocent,” said criminal defense attorney Jonathan W. McConnell. “He wanted someone to fight for him because he was innocent!” In January 2015, the McConnell Law Firm founder met a man wrongly accused of rape. Jon spent the next year heavily investigating the case, utilizing private investigators, medical experts and even an anonymous letter to form the defense that resulted in the dismissal of charges. “Had I been dependent on a public defender, there’s zero doubt in my mind that I’d be in prison right now,” said Saber Hossinei. “Jon cares so much. He’s not my friend, he’s my big brother.”
