A native of Atlanta, Jonathan attended Northside High School before enrolling at Tulane University in New Orleans. After graduation Jonathan remained in New Orleans to attend Tulane Law School, where he graduated in 1986.
After graduation from law school, Jonathan returned to Atlanta and joined a small personal injury litigation firm from 1986 through 1987.
In 1988, Jonathan joined a colleague and formed the law firm of Galler & Ginsberg, which began as a two attorney operation and within fifteen years, grew to a 25 person business with four lawyers. As the managing attorney for the firm’s bankruptcy practice, Jonathan saw his firm grow into one of the 10 largest consumer bankruptcy firm in the state. Also during this time Jonathan added Social Security disability to his practice, and participated in the rapid growth of that practice area as well.at Tulane University, and subsequently Tulane University College of Law. After graduation from law school, Jonathan joined a busy civil litigation firm that handled both personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.
Ginsberg Law Offices reflects Jodi and Jonathan’s vision of a boutique law firm that offers personalized, attentive service to our clients. Instead of a high volume practice that employs dozens of secretaries and paralegals, Ginsberg Law is almost entirely attorney driven.
If you have questions about Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 in Atlanta, or if you have done your research and you are prepared to move forward, please feel free to contact Ginsberg Law Offices at 770-393-4985.
When I joined Ginsberg Law Offices as an of counsel attorney, I felt the immediate impact I had on people’s lives with the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases that I was involved with and filed. I am very satisfied with our bankruptcy practice. We see people who need immediate help with dire financial and personal situations. With my directed advice, I am able to resolve clients’ immediate problems. In many cases, I am able to put clients on a path towards financial wholeness that they might have never experienced before.
I see my role as a bankruptcy attorney as more than just filing a petition. As your lawyer, I serve as both your attorney as as your counselor. This means that I will listen to you and treat you with the same respect and consideration that I would expect if I was meeting a lawyer. I know that you have most likely never been in a bankruptcy lawyer’s office and that the whole process can be overwhelming. Because of this, I will stand with you every step of the way as we walk through this process together. I will offer guidance and advice so you will have the tools to make an informed decision about this life-changing event.
I manage all of my bankruptcy cases, whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, closely and personally. When you call my office, I will respond directly to you. My clients come in with urgent problems, and I am usually able to offer both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy alternatives. Offering my clients solutions to seemingly impossible situations is extremely rewarding.
My background in public service makes me well suited to be a bankruptcy attorney and advocate on behalf of debtors. I earned my Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Georgia State University College of Law. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Columbia University and a Master of Public Administration and Public Policy from New York University. My professional experience includes government relations and public policy work. I also have extensive experience in the practice of Immigration Law. While in law school, I was Associate Editor Lead Articles for the Georgia State University Law Review and co-founder of the Immigration Law Society. My note, The Illegal Immigration Reform & Immigrant Responsibility Act’s One-Year Filing Deadline on Applications for Asylum: The Narrow Interpretation and Application of Exceptions to the Filing Deadline, 22 Ga. St. U. L. Rev. 463 (2005), was published.
I am a member in good standing of the State Bar of Georgia, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and the Superior Court of Fulton County.
I am grateful that many of my former clients have taken the time to review me on AVVO.com. Here is a recent review:
