Jonathan D. Plaut

Jonathan D. Plaut is the author of I’ll Take the Case: Wild and True Law Stories published by BookBaby in March. A partner at Cohan Rasnick Plaut LLP in Boston and of counsel in the New York, NY, office of Ritholz Levy Fields LLP, he focuses his litigation practice on civil and criminal trial work and appeals.


Motivation: “For years I wanted to write a book, but I simply didn’t have anything genuinely worthwhile to share—until now,” says the newly minted author. War Stories Recounted: In I’ll Take the Case: Wild and True Law Stories, he tells of his cases involving a maritime mutiny out of Gloucester, an action against Don King on behalf of a World Heavyweight boxing champion, a fistfight on a Korean Airlines flight that made headlines across South Korea, and the defense of a rock band lead singer in exchange for landing a gig as his bass player. Favorite Fictional Lawyer: Saul Goodman in the TV crime drama Better Call Saul.
