Born and raised in Florida, Jonathan J. Cagan is the managing attorney at Cagan & Cagan PLLC. Based in Jacksonville, he represents clients throughout the northern portion of the state. As an undergraduate, Mr. Cagan attended Southeastern University in Lakeland, and he was a President’s Scholarship recipient and majored in history before receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2011. He then pursued his legal education at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, and he was a dean’s list recipient before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2011.

Mr. Cagan divides his practice between criminal defense matters and personal injury and wrongful death litigation. In the former area, he represents people who have been accused by the state of having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses. Mr. Cagan’s cases in this regard have included driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, domestic violence, drug possession and distribution, probation violations and juvenile offenses. He has been successful in obtaining dismissals and acquittals, and he has also negotiated plea agreements with the prosecution that have been favorable to his clients.

In his personal injury practice, Mr. Cagan provides legal assistance to clients who have been harmed as a direct result of the negligence of other parties. He has handled truck, bicycle, automobile and motorcycle accidents, and he has also represented people in cases involving premises liability. Mr. Cagan’s successful track record in both of his practice areas has earned him a great deal of recognition from his fellow members of the bar, including a “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo. Admitted to practice before all Florida state courts since 2011, he has been a member of several professional and civic organizations.
