Our partner, Jonathan Jaramillo has primarily practised in criminal law. He is particularly sought out for complex criminal law cases across all jurisdictions.
Jonathan is described as a real tactician and he develops extensive strategies for all his cases regardless of the size of the case. Litigation often provides last minute curve balls, Jonathan forecasts the different possibilities the other side will try to do and formulates different strategies and back up plans accordingly to ensure his clients get the best results possible. He will not leave a stone unturned.
In particular Jonathan is often sought out for large complicated drug syndicate cases including large commercial supply, ongoing supply, drug importation, etc.
Before Jonathan was a lawyer, he worked for one of the big four banks. He was made part of a specialised team to trace missing clients that the bank needed to contact. Abstract reasoning and close attention to detail were paramount. He brings this knowledge to all his cases. He works closely with private investigators for more complex cases. He has won District Court trials / hearings based on his own investigations that the prosecution failed to do which have resulted in acquittals and legal costs recovered for our clients.
Jonathan is from a Colombian background and can communicate fluently in Spanish. He is very regarded by Central and South American embassies in Sydney and is known as being a strong “Abogado” (meaning lawyer) in Sydney, Australia. He has also provided legal opinions on SBS Spanish radio.
Jonathan is passionate about social justice issues. He will represent all members of our community regardless of their background when their civil rights are violated. He is not afraid to call out poor behaviour and fight for his clients civil rights.
When Jonathan is not fighting in Court, he enjoys being at the gym training mix martial arts at Clube de Lutas. He currently holds a blue belt in Bralizian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) under Kalil Pinto.
