Jonathan E. Forstall



Since Jonathan was a little kid, he was committed to following in his father’s footsteps in the practice of law and to, one day, take over one of New Orleans’ prominent law firms his father started back in the 90s. Today, he is living that dream and strives to take the law firm to the next level and to grow the firm’s presence even stronger in the New Orleans Community. Like his father, Jonathan has dedicated his legal career to representing the people of New Orleans against the modern-day Goliaths. He has grown to love the challenge of standing up for and representing people who have the odds stacked against them. Jonathan has taken his job seriously through the years of his practice. He is not afraid when the insurance company offers his client pennies on the dollar, thinking they can get his client to fold. Quite the opposite, he enjoys it when we can go to court and show our clients how powerful we can be to stand up to the big insurance companies and how we fight for their rights and prevail time after time. No matter how big or small the case, Jonathan takes great pride in helping those that entrust their injury claim to his law firm. Jonathan specializes in the area of civil litigation with a concentration in the areas of catastrophic personal injury, wrongful deaths, 18 wheeler accidents, company car accidents, traumatic brain injury, auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, ride-share accidents, slip and falls, general personal injury, and property damage claims.

Personal Background

Jonathan spent four years in Southern California and graduated from The University of San Diego in May, 2014 earning a Bachelors degree in Business Finance. While in undergrad, he also was lucky enough to spend a semester abroad in Barcelona, Spain, where he got to experience the rich culture of the Catalan people. After finishing his undergraduate, Jonathan moved back to his hometown, New Orleans, where he continued his education and attended law school at Loyola University College of Law and received his Juris Doctorate in May, 2017. Soon after that, Jonathan was admitted to practice law in all courts in Louisiana.

Jonathan is happily married to his beautiful wife Rachael, and a very proud father to his two amazing daughters, Avery and Alexandra. He also enjoys spending some down time with his two loveable pups. When Jonathan is not practicing law, he loves to spend quality time with his family and friends. Jonathan enjoys living a healthy and active lifestyle. He is consistent and disciplined, and starts every day with a workout. Jonathan also stays active throughout his community. He loves going to all the typical New Orleans Festivals to listen to good music, eat some delicious New Orleans food, and get entrenched with his community, the people of New Orleans. Jonathan also has a passion for traveling the globe with his wife, going to far far away destinations and capturing photographs of dramatic landscapes and unique culture of these remote areas
