Jonathan Steele has dedicated his career to representing injured people and their families. He handles all types of personal injury cases, with an emphasis on nursing home negligence/abuse and dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
Prior to founding the Steele Law Firm, Jonathan practiced at an international litigation defense firm in Chicago, Illinois and then Kansas City, Missouri. There, he argued cases in state and federal courts across the country and represented some of the world’s largest corporations and insurance companies including an NFL franchise and a national real estate investment trust. More importantly, he defended corporations and insurance companies against large personal injury claims. Knowing how the biggest corporations and insurance companies defend themselves creates a huge advantage in preparing a case for trial and ensuring that his client receives every dollar of compensation he or she deserves.
Before, entering private practice Jonathan clerked for Judge Alok Ahuja on the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District. In this role, Jonathan learned what judges are looking for from a plaintiff’s lawyer and he puts that knowledge to use every day fighting for his client.
Mr. Steele graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Political Science and received a Juris Doctor degree from the University of California, Berkeley, School of law.
He is a member in good standing of the Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois state courts and the United States District Courts of Kansas and Missouri.
