Having been born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Jonathan Zisser came to the practice of law naturally. He serves as a partner at Zisser Family Law PLLC, with co-partner Sara Frazier and senior associate Lynn Salvatore. He also works along side senior counsel (and parents) Elliot Zisser and Carolyn Zisser and also with uncle Barry Zisser (retired). Jonathan is a 1997 graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville where he majored in geology and was a four-year letterman on the varsity cross country and track teams, and a 2000 graduate of the Vermont Law School in South Royalton, VT where he focused on environmental law and participated on the environmental moot court team.  

Shortly after graduation, Mr. Zisser moved to Washington, D.C., to focus on environmental law. There he served as an associate with Defenders of Wildlife focusing on Endangered Species Act litigation. He then served as an associate for the Rotbert Law Group, focusing on environmental issues for clients in Florida.

In 2003, Jonathan Zisser moved back home to Jacksonville and accepted a position as an Assistant Public Defender for the Fourth Judicial Circuit. He began to practice criminal defense and grew his abilities as a trial attorney. In 2007, Jonathan became an associate with Zisser, Brown, Nowlis & Cabrey, P.A. practicing both criminal defense and the firm's focus in family law. As of 2015, Jonathan became a partner/shareholder with Zisser Law PLLC, now Zisser Family Law PLLC where he still serves today and continues his practice in the areas of family law/matrimonial law and criminal defense. 

Mr. Zisser is a member of the Jacksonville Bar Association and the Florida Bar Association and is proud to contribute community service monthly to Jacksonville Area Legal Aid. In addition to his passions as an attorney, Jonathan enjoys his family, travel, sports and spending time at the beach.
