Jonathan has worked with numerous community associations, condominiums and planned communities, advising about transition to unit owner control; governance and operational issues; insurance; collection and foreclosure of the statutory priority lien; mortgage foreclosures; unit owner bankruptcies; maintenance responsibilities; document interpretation and amendment; enforcement procedures; reviewing, drafting, and negotiating contracts with vendors; capital projects, and association borrowing. He serves as a foreclosure committee for the Hartford judicial district.
Jonathan has presented at events hosted by the Community Association Institute (CAI). He has authored a number of articles published in the CAI-CT publication Common Interest on issues including construction contracts, special assessments, transition, collections, legalization of marijuana, security cameras, and association recordkeeping. He also volunteers as an at-large delegate of the CAI-CT Legislative Action Committee and Publication Committee.
He has advised about “crumbling foundations,” which arises in certain foundations due to the existence of a mineral (pyrrhotite), including for impacted associations. Jonathan assisted a group with statutory and regulatory language to clarify how an association or owner may receive funding or financing, at below market interest rates, for certain testing and potentially otherwise very expensive remediation work.
For approximately ten years prior to his arrival at Feldman, Perlstein & Greene, LLC, his practice involved litigation in a number of areas, and municipal law, which included drafting opinions for municipal officials and departments, writing or revising ordinances, drafting and negotiating contracts, collecting taxes, and enforcing the municipal charter, ordinances, or other regulations. Jonathan was named to the Connecticut Super Lawyers Rising Star in the area of civil litigation (2015).
Jonathan received his undergraduate degree from Quinnipiac University, and graduated from the Quinnipiac University School of Law, magna cum laude (2005). While he attended law school, he worked full-time as a law clerk for a well-known litigation firm.
Jonathan resides in Wallingford with his wife, daughter, and twin boys. He is a past board member and past president of the local chapter of JDRF (formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). He presents, consults, or represents families regarding anti-discrimination laws that protect students who have been diagnosed with type one diabetes. Jonathan is also a current board member of ASRC (Autism Services and Resources of Connecticut). He is active in his community, as a volunteer member of the Charter Revision Commission, (2015-2017), a member of the Personnel & Pension Appeals Board, and as a Hearing Officer.
