Wilkommen, Bienvenu, Welcome!

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth is pleased to announce that Jon Markman has joined our team as an associate attorney effective May 1, 2013.  Jon is a 2008 graduate of Yale, where he copped both a B.A. (with honors, thank you very much) and an M.A. before heading off to Ann Arbor for a law degree (cum laude again – hubba hubba!) from Michigan. Jon has interned for a U.S. District Judge and, most recently, was a Fellow at the Institute for Justice in Arlington, Virginia. He also served as an Associate and Contributing Editor for the U. of Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law Review.  Jon admits to being a long-suffering Cleveland sports fan, although he’s prepared to work at being a long-suffering D.C. sports fan. He claims to have replaced the wall outlets in his home with outlets featuring built-in USB ports (although that claim has not yet been independently confirmed by CommLawBlog’s Official Fact Checker). Jon and his wife, Ligia, live in D.C. with a dog (named Eli – talk about your loyal alums) and two cats (Leo and Zipper). Oh yeah, he makes his own ice cream!
