Jonathan D. Tromp

Attorney Grand Rapids, MI

It was the potential for professional relationships with my clients that initially led me into a career in public accounting, and the furtherance of those relationships that resulted in the eventual transition into a career in law. I believe that the relationship with an attorney is not just a transaction, but rather one that is ongoing – be it simply the person who is there when a question arises, or to be a valuable member of the team to help my clients achieve their goals.  Having previously served as a CPA in Western Michigan, I am keenly aware of not only what keeps business owners, decision makers, and policy makers awake at night, but how to assist in alleviating those sleepless nights.

Having grown up boating and sailing on the Great Lakes, the call of the Sea has taken me thousands of miles, including across the Atlantic Ocean, but it is the vast natural resources and culture of Michigan that makes me proud to call this great state home.  I am honored to serve the clients that provide the economic engine, the culture, and determination to improve the communities that make Michigan unique.
