Jonathan Hutcheson

Lawyer, Journalist, and Consultant in Phoenix, Arizona

Hire me

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 (nbcnews.com).

I am the Director of Cyber Security for 100 Reporters (100r.org) 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 (Video of a panel I was on at the National Press Club 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. (barbrisettlingmentobjection.com) that I coordinated which helped lead to a successful rejection. The subsequent, approved settlement carried an 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.
