Too often lawyers use the phrases, “trial lawyer” or “litigator” to describe themselves, despite the fact that they rarely if ever actually try a case; that is not the case with Jonathan Little. Jon has been practicing law since 2007, when he began working as a law clerk in the County Attorney’s Office in Flagstaff, Arizona. Jon began his personal law practice focusing on criminal defense in 2007 as well. Since 2007 Jon has tried numerous jury trial for offenses ranging from cock fighting to murder, as well as civil juries in jurisdictions from coast to coast.
In 2008 Jon left the County Attorney’s office and moved to Indianapolis to pursue cases for athletes that had been molested by coaches in various United States Olympic Committee regulated sports. Jon’s work on behalf of sexual abuse victims has been featured in various media outlets from 20/20 to the New York Times. In 2010 due directly to Jon’s advocacy they United States Olympic Committee founded its first “Safe Sport Program”. Additionally Jon served as a lawyer for the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders in 2016.
Today Jon’s practice is still focused on litigation that will lead to trial. Jon believes that publicizing corporate and governmental abuse is one of the few remedies regular citizens have in today’s society.
