Jonathan B. Tarris Attorney at Law - Tarris Law


I focus my practice on keeping the legal process easy for my clients by keeping them well informed. When you first meet with me, I gather the necessary facts, discusses the outcome you desire, and advises you on potential solutions and the process going forward.


Jonathan was home-grown on a cattle farm just outside of Lexington Virginia. He is a graduate of Rockbridge County High School and of West Virginia University where he studied at the College of Business & Economics before attending law school at both George Mason and Washington & Lee University. While completing his law degree, Jonathan worked in the Office of the Attorney General of Virginia as a part of the Transportation, Real Estate, Environmental, & Financial Division and coached youth sports.

After law school, Jonathan began his career as Contract Negotiator for a manufacturer where he negotiated and drafted international deals, saving the company valuable resources. Jonathan then earned his securities license and began working for a Fortune 500 company as a Financial Planner. There, he advised his clients on various strategies to build wealth and protect assets.  In his spare time, Jonathan likes to be outside with his lab, visit new places, and stay involved with his community.

Jonathan opened Tarris Law as a way to expand the range of services he offers. Based in downtown Lexington, Tarris Law provides you with clear information and direction regarding your legal matters. We believe in up-front pricing and offer flexible payment plans. We understand many of the difficulties people face, from dealing with a problem to planning ahead.
