Jonathan D. Mester focuses his practice on representing victims of medical malpractice, including obstetrical malpractice cases in which the baby suffers severe deficits at birth including Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy. Jonathan also handles construction accident cases involving serious injury and death.

Jonathan joined Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy in 1998 as an associate and today is the managing partner with the firm, and a member of the firm’s board of directors. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Jonathan has also been selected for inclusion in Ohio Super Lawyers® by Law & Politics Media since 2010. In 2024, Jonathan was included in The Best Lawyers in America publication for both medical malpractice and personal injury litigation.

Jonathan is proud to represent individuals who need assistance in taking on hospitals, corporations, and large insurance companies. He is most proud of the jury verdicts he has obtained. Jonathan has obtained multiple jury verdicts more than a million dollars, including the first medical malpractice verdict in several years in Columbus, Ohio on behalf of a four-year-old girl in 2013. In each of these cases, the wrongdoer offered little or nothing to settle the case, leaving Jonathan’s clients no choice but to take the case to trial.
