Attorney Advisor, AEquitas
Jonathan Kurland is an Attorney Advisor at AEquitas. Prior to joining AEquitas, Jonathan worked in the District Attorney’s Office of Berks County, Pennsylvania where he started as a line Assistant District Attorney and prosecuted the range of cases typical for a jurisdiction with a combination of urban, suburban, and rural communities. However, over time, Jonathan’s focus increasingly trended to violent crime and cases involving the most vulnerable and exploited of victims. When Jonathan left after sixteen years in the District Attorney’s Office to join AEquitas, he was the Chief Deputy District Attorney and supervised, advised, and still prosecuted matters involving intimate partner violence and homicides, sexual violence, child abuse, and grand jury investigations. During his time in the Berks County District Attorney’s Office, Jonathan helped to develop collaboration between prosecutors, law enforcement, victim advocacy, medical professional, and other community stakeholders particularly through serving as the office lead for a variety of victim-focused multidisciplinary investigative teams and other community-based collaborative efforts focusing on intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child abuse, and human trafficking.
In addition to his trial and supervisory experience, Jonathan served for two years in the appellate unit. He was assigned as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney for Berks County, where he served as liaison to multiple agencies to facilitate federal adoption of prosecutions involving complex criminal enterprises and violent career criminals. He also served as adjunct faculty at Alvernia University, where he taught courses in the Criminal Justice Department.
Jonathan remains based in Berks County where he lives with his wife and son and spends his spare time running or feeling guilty for skipping running.
