Top Reviewed Lawyer in Los Angeles by Results and Service

Someone rear ended my car. It was a hit and run and at the end of it, I messed up my back really bad. I honestly didn't know where to turn until my friend sent me to El Dabe Ritter. They were able to help me reach a settlement with my car accident. Additionally, they were also able to help me with the physical therapy that I needed for my back. I am very satisfied with their knowledge, professionalism, follow through, and friendliness. I had so many questions, but all of them were answered with such patience. I am the kind of person that likes to cover all my bases and what if situations that come to mind. I truly felt taken care of here and would recommend it to anyone that needs help!

Los Angeles, California


Jonathan was born in and is still a resident of Los Angeles.  At 16 years old, he tested out of high school and continued to excel by testing out of college and starting law school at the young age of 20.  By the age of 23, he graduated cum laude from UWLA law school, was selected for the Dean’s List, and then passed the bar on the first try.

Aside from being a quick learner throughout his life, Jonathan has a sincere interest in helping individuals who are powerless in a system where power and money seem to have the upper hand.  Jonathan knew that he wanted to focus his career on one thing:  helping injured persons defend themselves against large insurance companies.  From his very first legal job through today, Jonathan has worked only for injured parties.

Following an extensive work record with two prestigious law firms, Jonathan had acquired more than enough experience to found his firm, Ritter Law, in downtown Los Angeles, in 2011.  His firm quickly grew in size, as did his reputation as an expert litigator specializing in brain and spinal injuries who obtains substantial recoveries for his clients.  Jonathan then met a lawyer that shared his passion for representing the “little guy” against large insurance corporations, S. Edmond El Dabe.  Through the years, Edmond and Jonathan have collaborated on a variety of high profile cases and obtained millions of dollars for their clients.

After such joint success, they both realized that they could serve the community better as a team, and thus Ritter Law and El Dabe Law firm decided to join forces.  Now as partners, their firms have more than 30 years’ combined legal experience, along with a supporting legal team of eleven attorneys and staff that can handle serious injury cases against any size opponent.

Jonathan has obtained tens of millions of dollars for his clients in a wide variety of cases, including catastrophic injuries, amputations, burns, permanent nerve injuries, complex regional pain syndrome, spinal injuries, shoulder injuries, knee injuries, dog bites, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, and pedestrian injuries.

Jonathan also devotes his time, pro bono, to nonprofit organizations that help advocate for patients’ rights against discrimination.
