Since graduating from law school in 2010 and establishing his own firm in 2014, Jonathan W. McConnell and his firm have become well-known for their work vigorously defending clients in the Wichita, Kansas area. In April 2017, the Jonathan W. McConnell Law Firm rebranded as the McConnell Law Firm to better represent the firm’s recent growth and expansion.
McConnell has also become known for receiving top ratings by prestigious legal directories such as Martindale-Hubbell, Avvo and Super Lawyers. “Legal directories are a great way to vet a prospective attorney,” said McConnell. “It’s important to find out how past clients felt about services rendered, as well as how the attorney’s peers would rate him or her.”
Mr. McConnell is a member of The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers.
For more than a century, Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings have been the gold standard in attorney ratings due to the process’ objectivity and comprehensiveness. Only attorneys practicing at least three years and who have received sufficient reviews from non-affiliated attorneys are eligible. All reviewers are verified and include both those selected by the attorney and those independently selected by Martindale-Hubbell.
McConnell currently holds the highest rating with Martindale-Hubbell: “AV Preeminent.” According to the directory, “This rating signifies that a large number of the lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, communication skills and ethical standards.”
One of McConnell’s peers included the following review with his five-star Martindale-Hubbell rating: “Jon is a terrific trial attorney. He really cares about his clients and works tirelessly to give his clients the best possible outcome. Jon is respectful and knows his way around a courtroom. [He] is not scared to take a case to trial. Everyone knows that [he] cares about his clients and supports them during the rough times. Jon is the quintessential AV attorney.”
McConnell also has an impressive rating with the widely-known directory, Avvo. A staggering 97 percent of all U.S. attorneys are rated by Avvo, and McConnell holds their highest possible rating: “Superb.”
One of McConnell’s clients included the following review with his five-star Avvo rating: “Jon is a standup guy and an amazing attorney. I would recommend him to anyone, especially if there are high stakes against you. My entire career and future was on the line, and he worked with me all the way. He doesn't really sugar coat things, but he does offer great confidence and encouragement. He came through for me and now I'm able to get on with my life, thanks to him!”
Another well-known legal directory, Super Lawyers, has honored McConnell with the “Rising Star” designation. According to the organization, “The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in each state. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less.”
