Jonathan C. Veres, a lifelong Pittsburgher, graduated from Duquesne University School of Law and is admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.
While he now dedicates his practice to Family Law matters in divorce, custody, support, and equitable distribution - Jonathan has also represented clients in a range of other areas - including Criminal Defense, Traffic, and Civil Litigation. In practice, he litigated and settled multiple family law cases in counties across Southwestern Pennsylvania. He prides himself on listening to his clients and relying on his experience to help them navigate the complexities and stresses of the legal system.
Prior to practicing law, Jonathan interned with Neighborhood Legal Services in Pittsburgh where he expunged criminal records for low-income clients to open up employment and housing opportunities for them. When representing his clients, Jonathan relies on this work to keep his clients’ futures in mind – well past short-term goals.
At Duquesne University School of Law, Jonathan received the prestigious Court Call Award for his competition on the school’s rigorous Appellate Moot Court Board. There, he and his moot court team bested forty other teams to win the National Championship in the Robert F. Wagner Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition. At that same competition, Jonathan won Best Petitioner Oralist, and his team won Best Petitioner Brief. He has since returned as an Appellate Moot Court Board coach to pass on the guidance he received in the program to current students.
In his spare time, Jonathan works as a voice-over artist and trains in Judo, a Japanese martial art focusing on throwing, grappling, and competition. He maintains his membership with the Allegheny County Bar Association’s Family Law Division and stays active in his community.
