Jon has authored briefs in dozens of US Supreme Court cases at both the merits and certiorari stages, and has briefed cases in federal and state appellate courts throughout the country. He has argued in the US Supreme Court and nearly every federal circuit, as well as the New Jersey Appellate Division and the D.C. Court of Appeals. Jon’s appellate work has resulted in reversals of trial-court judgments (including jury verdicts) worth tens of millions and even billions of dollars.

Jon’s areas of expertise include federal constitutional law, insurance, ERISA, antitrust, criminal law and procedure, and federal jurisdiction and procedure.

Super Lawyers list in 2011-2014. He has repeatedly been selected as a leading US appellate lawyer by Chambers, Legal 500, and The Best Lawyers in America.
