A veteran attorney with significant experience litigating complex commercial, construction and other civil matters from inception through trial and appeal, Jordan now focuses his practice on civil appeals and litigation support in civil matters in both state and federal courts. 

A member of the Florida Bar since 1994, Jordan spent the vast majority of his legal career working for a major international law firm and prominent South Florida boutique firms, where he represented a diverse clientele ranging from large multinational corporations to small local businesses and individuals in complex litigation both in South Florida's courts as well as courts across the country.

Before establishing JMKPA in October 2011, Jordan spent eight years as senior counsel at a prominent local construction litigation boutique.  There he handled the firm’s appellate and complex motion practice litigation, including all of the substantive motion and brief writing in one of the largest multi-party construction defect cases ever filed in South Florida.
