Jonathan (aka “The Chosen Lawyer”) was called to the Ontario Bar in 2002, graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2001 and completed his Bachelor of Business Administration at The Schulich School of Business (York University) in 1998. In addition to being a Partner at Kormans LLP, Jonathan’s journey in law started as an Associate with a large Bay Street law firm, as well as enjoying a secondment working in-house at Tim Hortons (TDL Group) for almost a year!
Jonathan was an Instructor with OREA, teaching the Real Property Law course to future realtors in Ontario. The Chosen Lawyer is a sought-after lecturer at seminars, team meetings and conferences—often speaking to groups including realtors and mortgage brokers on a variety of legal topics including real estate, corporate/commercial and wills/estates law. He also speaks on non-legal topics including Organization, Productivity, Motivation, Work/Life Balance and Mindfulness. Jonathan adopts a zen-like approach to the practice of law and shares his real-life experience with others in order to help them achieve success and happiness!

Before entering the legal field, Jonathan chose to study business as he envisioned having a background in all aspects of business (including accounting, economics, finance, marketing and HR) would prove to be very useful as a lawyer—in understanding and communicating with business clients on their respective businesses and industries. Jonathan has a diverse client base, including many first-time home purchasers, residential clients (purchases, sales, refinances, assignment transactions), corporate/commercial clients (real estate transactions, leases, incorporations, shareholder agreements), as well as assisting clients with preparing wills and powers of attorney.
When he is not in the office or in front of a computer, Jonathan can either be found in the gym, boxing ring, learning a new recipe in the kitchen or on a yoga mat. Jonathan has competed with UFE (Ultimate Fitness Events) and is a double medal winner in the physique category! Jonathan is also an avid animal lover and can usually be found with his trusted pal Ollie (Shih-tzu dog) by his side.
