I chose Jonathan Kales to represent me in my divorce, and he did an outstanding job on every level. I was particularly impressed by his knowledge of this area of law, and by the fact that throughout the process, he took the time to explain everything I needed to know in a way that was clear to me. I never felt rushed, but he was always efficient with the billable time spent on my case. I felt as though he really cared about me, which was especially important during a time in my life when I was feeling vulnerable, confused, and frightened. Moreover, I felt that the divorce agreement that was reached was optimal for me – I was very well represented. I have since referred another client to Jonathan, and she also had an excellent experience with him. He has competence and integrity, probably the two most important attributes for any professional person, and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation in a divorce.

I have referred clients to Jonathan and find him an excellent attorney. There has been nothing but positive feedback concerning him, his firm and their work. In addition, he has worked with me on cases that deal with back child support, premarital trust agreement interpretation and property settlement. All the work was wonderful. This is a great firm.

A divorce is never a positive thing for any family or couple, often leading to contempt and bitter feeling amongst the parties. A Collaborative divorce is a means of coming to a amicable ending for all involved. Jonathan was able to help us work through the process of divorce, resolve issues and understand that when working together, we could still do what's right for all involved. Maintaining the focus on what's best for our daughter we were able to get through a difficult situation and come to a resolution that was best for everyone involved. I'd highly recommend Jonathan for his expertise, knowledge and overall good demeanor during a difficult time. He was very professional and to the point regarding the legalities of the procedings. Keeping everything within the boundaries of the law while maintaining a even balance between both parties.

I did not know what I was getting into, but Jonathan made the process as smooth as can be expected. After hearing the issues other divorced couples were going through, I am glad I took the Collaborative route. Jonathan on my ex-spouses attorney worked well together and the separation got done a lot sooner and cost less than if we had go through litigation.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jonathan Kales for many years. It has been a pleasure to see him in action in the recent past. Jonathan approaches his collaborative divorce practice with enthusiasm and a genuine desire to help families reach as amicable a solution as possible under difficult circumstances. Jonathan is a skilled professional and can be counted on to make his clients his first priority and to do everything possible to limit the fallout from a divorce.

Jonathan was extremely helpful. His advice was right on target. My now ex-spouse was difficult to deal with at times, but Jonathan never skipped a beat and stayed right on task. The process took longer than I expected, but then again, I had never gone through a divorce before. Jonathan kept everything moving along and kept a good balance. I hope that I, personally, will never have to use his services again but I would recommend him highly to anyone.
