Jonathan Gilbert was born and raised in Orlando, Florida and is a graduate of Winter Park High School. Jonathan Gilbert has lived his entire life in Central Florida.
Jonathan attended the University of Florida on a full academic scholarship where he focused his undergraduate studies on political science and graduated magna cum laude in just three years. From there, he attended Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, Florida, where he was inducted into Phi Delta Phi Honor Society. Upon graduating from Stetson cum laude in 2008, Jon received the William F. Blews Award for exceptional Pro Bono Service and the Certificate of Leadership.
Since 2009, Jon has been a member of the Florida Bar, and he is admitted to practice in every Florida state court, the Southern, Northern, and Middle Federal District Courts, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Since 2009, Jon has also been a member of the Florida Justice Association, Florida’s statewide plaintiff civil litigation organization aimed at protecting the rights of those injured or wronged. In fact, he is now the Chairman of the Board of the Young Lawyer’s Section.
The YLS mission is to encourage young lawyers to become involved in the FJA. Jon took over the reins as Chairman after presiding at this year’s YLS board election which boasted the largest turnout in FJA YLS history, and had the largest slate of candidates running for the board.
His major responsibility will be to organize the annual Earle Zehmer Mock Trial Competition for students of all the Florida law schools. Our law firm has graciously agreed to again be the flagship sponsor. This competition will be bigger and better than last year with the pledged support of local judges and attorneys.
