About Jonathan

After completing his diploma in professional legal practice in 2014, Jonathan joined Thompsons. He has since worked in both the Union and Private Accident Teams dealing with reparation claims for injured parties.

His time at Thompsons has been very rewarding and one aspect of this has been the opportunity to deliver presentations to Union members on a broad range of legal subjects.


Jonathan regularly deals with cases in the Court of Session and the All Scotland Personal Injury court in Edinburgh. He also represents clients in Summary Cause proceedings in various local Sheriff Courts in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.

He has experience in many different types of claims, including those for medical negligence, accidents at work, stress at work, road traffic accidents, public liability accidents and offshore accidents. In addition, he has represented clients making claims for family members who have suffered fatal accidents and regularly makes applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and the Motor Insurers Bureau.

I am very impressed with the service I received from Thompsons Solicitors, in particular with the support I received from Mr Jonathan Howat. – Mrs E Ross

Jonathan does his job well. I felt he was very helpful and kept me updated on the progress of my claim. He provided advice + direction on what to do as I was not familiar with the process. I would recommend Jonathan to family and friends. – Miss A Donnelly

An amazing service! No “concern” was too minimal for Jonathan and he explained each step of the process in great detail. I found his attitude and approach very professional. He was always courteous and reassuring. –  Mrs A MacKechnie

The service was excellent! Not just because of the result but because Mr Howat always kept us up to date with our daughters case and he spoke in a language we understood rather than just legal. He worked extremely fast and we feel like he gave us great advice. Very happy with his work, very happy!!! – Mr & Mrs Robertson

Jonathan Howat was always a great help when it came to dealing with my claim. He kept in contact often ensuring I knew what was happening. Great advice was given and I am very happy with the outcome. – Miss Campbell
