Attorned is a platform that links clients to lawyers through a bidding system. It increases accessibility to justice by providing a large pool of lawyers from multiple sectors. It reduces the time expended by clients in search for lawyers within independent law firms. The competitive market within the legal directory ensures the client will be able to review bidding lawyer biographies and choose only the best lawyer to fight for their cause.

Jonathan graduated with a Licentiate in Law from the University of Ottawa, as well as a Juris Doctor from the Université de Sherbrooke.

Vision: Jonathan intends Attorned to be the go-to connecting network for legal services.
