Jonathan Hutcheson

Lawyer, Journalist, and Consultant in Phoenix, Arizona

I am an attorney/journalist/consultant based in Phoenix who specializes in technology, security and privacy issues. My work has appeared various places such as NBC Nightly News, MSNBC, the TODAY Show and First Read (

I am the Director of Cyber Security for 100 Reporters ( and responsible for both site and source security. I am also the principal designer/developer of their web-based publication.

On occasion I do digital strategy and development work for other select clientele. I also do public speaking engagements such as panels and programs (e.g. National Press Club panel appearance) speaking about digital security for journalists and their sources).

For those familiar with BAR/BRI, you may know of me from the massive objection to the ridiculous class action settlement proposal in Stetson v. West Publishing Corp. ( that I coordinated which helped lead to a successful rejection. The subsequent, approved settlement carried an estimated increased cash value of $4.3M (82% greater).

Please contact me if you in need of consulting on issues of digital security and privacy or interested in arranging booking for a speaking engagement.

Licensed to practice law in Arizona and the District of Columbia.
