I found Jonathan to be fully abreast of the law and on top of the proceedings. He is very honest and tells you as it is to make a decision. Being overseas, it was hard to work out the details due to the time difference, but Jonathan was always available to me, if not by phone itself, but via e-mails and also text messages. I found him to meet all the deadlines he promised, very accurate.

Jonathan and his team were excellent! If you have to get a divorce you should at least have someone in your corner that is knowledgable and understanding. As a veteran, nurse, mother and former homemaker/military spouse - Thank You! -

In our initial consultation, Jonathan told me that if I wanted to get revenge on my wife, he was the wrong lawyer for me. I knew I had the right guy. Every step of the way, Jonathan has provided me top notch representation. He allowed me to set the direction (sometimes against his advice), but always made sure I was aware of the consequences. In the end I came away with a clear conscience and an equitable settlement. Jonathan is on good terms with the judges and knows what to expect from each one. He is very responsive and available, and - very very importantly - really works to keep costs down. My ex-wife went through 3 lawyers and spent 3X what I did for representation that was half as good. I highly recommend Jonathan Simon.

I selected Jonathan to handle my divorce because he displayed a sound legal mind as well as exceptional skills in financial analysis, critical to my case. My divorce should have been simple - no kids - yet turned out to be a “1 in 1 million case”, with everything from difficult/unethical opposing councils to my ex-husband suffering a partial disability along the way. Jonathan and his team kept the process moving and when I became restless and impatient, met with me to review process, options, scenarios and potential outcomes. His staff was extremely knowledgable - Kim is an amazing Parallegal! As for Jonathan, it is refreshing to find a legal professional that knows the law, is a master in finances, behaves with honesty/integrity, has great follow-up, and is a good guy. Bonus: he delivers quality work at reasonable rates! Hire him today. You will not be disappointed!

Anyone who is looking for family legal services would be doing themselves a favor by consulting with Mr. Simon. From our first meeting, and thereafter, I felt comfortable with the information and the strategy Mr. Simon pursued in my case. He was neither under or over aggressive, and seemed to share my concern with keeping the case as simple as possible. In the end he was able to work a fair deal with my ex-wife's lawyers, while keeping costs maintainable.
I would highly recommend Mr. Simon as your next family lawyer.

Jonathan was highly recommended to me by a fellow attorney. I was needing a modification of visitation, child support and a few other things that had never been complied with from my divorce agreement of 10 plus years ago. I knew there was the potential for it to be turned into much more then what it started as. It did turn into 2 plus years of a battle. Jonathan was there for me every step of the way. He was always available to answer any of my questions and calm all of my fears. Every part of my case was handled with the utmost professionalism and heart. Jonathan always had my sons best interest first and protected him from having to be brought into it. Jonathan is very down to earth, easy to talk to and he listens and hears what you are saying. He responded to every one of my emails and if I needed to speak with him it was never an issue. The entire staff was always very caring and helpful. I can't imagine going through this without Jonathan by my side. I am eternally grateful to him . He is by far an all around wonderful person. I have dealt with other attorneys in the past but felt that I was just another client. Never once did I feel that way with Jonathan. His knowledge his professionalism but most of all his humanity is unmatched. If you need an attorney you can find no one better than Jonathan.

Jonathan Simon said when we first met that my experience with his firm would be like no other I previously had in family law. All I can say is that he was not kidding, and he delivered a home run with my case. I was divorced 14 years ago, and three lawyers later, along with tons of money, Jonathan was the only one who delivered. Within the first 20 minutes of our initial meeting Jonathan detected a simple mathematical error that cost me dearly the last 14 years. That error became the foundation of our case which ended up settling without an expensive, long trial. Jonathan initially told us that a lot of his cases settle, and he can add mine to the list. The Orlando Family Firm seems to stream line typical law procedures at every opportunity that ultimately saves the client money. They stay in contact with you at all times to keep you informed. They apply pressure and spend money when it makes sense and will not if the client stands to gain nothing from senseless legal maneuvers. They play fair even when the other side does not and they act with proper manners. I feel very blessed and relieved that this chapter of my life is over! I would encourage anyone who needs expert legal counsel in family law to contact Jonathan Simon...FIRST!

My divorce was unfortunatley a long drawn out battle. With every battle there is a need for leadership. Mr. Simon provided that leadership. He was calculated in each of the necessary moves made and provided an explanation of each move in layman's terms. I have to say that the divorce went just about exactly as he said it would. This is important since the difficulty we have as someone going through a contested divorce is that we are uncertain of how it will go both is process and results. Mr. Simon not only provided this guidance with me but also clearly directed his team of legal and office assistants utilizing each when appropriate. He delegated work when required and when it was most cost effective while stepping in when his services were needed. He was a master within the courtroom. He was well prepared each time at conferences, mediations, depositions, and particularly in the courtroom where he was also able to improvise and execute actions on his feet. He did all of this while being assessable at all times and conscious of my budget. You select a lawyer usually based upon their proven ability to perform, history of success in the courtroom, ability to articulate each action with their client, standing with the legal community, assessability, and cost. Mr Simon is stellar in each of these categories and provided the best bang for my buck - the results of my divorce are proof of this! I highly recommend him and his staff for any family matter that you need help in resolving by a man and a firm who clearly know how to get the results you deserve.

You just know when you make a phone call to certain desperate lawyers how it is going to end. They overbill and lack the necessary knowledge needed to accomplish anything on your behalf. My experience with Jonathan Simon was exactly the OPPOSITE! He is very knowledgeable, very efficient and wasted none of my time and got the job done quick. On top of that, the other lawyers I contacted wanted to charge unreasonable fees for a simple matter. Jonathan's fees were reasonable, transparent and made sense from the beginning and did not change part way through the process. I actually asked him to do additional work for me and he referred me to another attorney he thought would be more suitable for my needs! This is unheard of in my experience with other legal professionals!

I went to Jonathan in an impossible situation. My first attorney was horrible and had me sign papers I never should have. Jonathan managed to get the agreement set aside, and then got me a settlement that I can happily live with. He was informative, honest, and replied to me immediately whenever I had problems or questions. I can't imagine a better attorney to have on your side.
