You couldn't pick a better family law attorney! I hired Jonathan to represent me in a modification of my alimony payments because of retirement. Right off the bat he saved me a whole month's alimony through his recommendations on how to proceed. He is extremely knowledgeable of the law and at ease in the court room. Jonathan was easy to work with and personable. I was amazed at how quickly he returned my emails and phone calls. He takes that quality to a whole new level, really first rate! Probably the thing I was most impressed with of all was his total commitment to the client's (my) best interests. We faced an extremely aggressive and hostile opposing attorney who tried to run up the bills as much as possible, but Jonathan developed a strategy that did everything needed to protect my interests, yet did not let things go overboard in costs and his fees are very reasonable. I highly recommend Jonathon Simon to anyone needing a family lawyer!
Jonathan knows his stuff. He is very likable and respectable; therefore, he was an asset to my case because of who he knew and the knowledge he possessed of laws the opposing attorney didn't know of. He gets the work done.
Let's just say that hiring Jonathan Simon is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Jonathan has guided me through the two most difficult years of my life in a recent custody battle. He is professional, realistic, trustworthy, responsive, and most importantly, knowledgeable of the law. I have been through two trials with him as my attorney and there is NO ONE I would ever replace him with. He can think on his feet and will protect and defend you from any and all legal issues. Trust me, I've experienced this first hand. Jonathan is a strategic bull dog with the best ethical heart I could have ever found. He kept the needs of our family and our children at the forefront at ALL times. Why? He is a family man himself.
If you are in need of an attorney, it would be a mistake to not hire Jonathan Simon.
I tried to use one of the online legal document firms to do handle a QDRO, simple right? After literally years of holding on the phone, additional consult fees, and misdirection, I decided to set up a free consult with Jonathan. He was able to quickly determine what needed to be done and devised a plan of action and even offered to handle the court matters for me. Please take my advice and hire an attorney and don't try to do it yourself. The document firms are not attorneys and may not act in your best interest, Jonathan Simon will.
I feel extremely fortunate to have found Jonathan and only wish it had been sooner. Like many out there, I wasted way too much time and money with a previous attorney, that was not available or accessible to me and actually discouraged questions. If there was a question to be asked, the charge was enormous.
When I first met Jonathan, I was full of anxiety stemming from my previous experience and how I thought all attorneys worked was still very fresh in my mind. Jonathan is like NO other out there. They have seriously broke the mold with him. Jonathan is very compassionate, very knowledgeable and very respected by his peers. Everyone I encountered during my case, told me how lucky I was to have Jonathan as my attorney for the above reasons. Jonathan takes as much time as needed with you to ensure you totally understand the law, your case, his strategy and what to expect. He is excellent at what he does. Make no mistake, he is the nicest, compassionate, caring man, however he always has your back in court, is aggressive and fights hard for you when the time comes. Unlike other attorneys in my experience, he is extremely conscientious to keep his fees at a minimum and will not just needlessly bill you. You should expect to be pleasantly surprised at how far your money goes with Jonathan, especially if you've had a previous attorney. Another pleasant surprise will be the level of communication you receive (without being billed). Jonathan always wants you to feel like you can ask him any question at any time or even bounce ideas that pop into your head at any hour....not kidding...anytime...the most I'd ever had to wait for a response is maybe 15min. Again, if you've been elsewhere before, you know this is not common or inexpensive to ask a question in any way.
If you haven't seeked counsel already, please do yourself a favor and meet Jonathan. If you have an attorney and are stalled, not getting nowhere, your money is flying out the door and on top of it you are being charged dearly just for asking a question....Please find Jonathan fast. In the end, I believe you will spend a fraction of the fees you've already paid out to get nowhere, and in contrast, now receive lightening fast action and the peace of mind that comes with knowing you are free to ask any question at anytime and you will be answered timely and compassionately. For someone going through a difficult time in their lives, this peace of mind is priceless.
I also don't want to forget the staff at Jonathan's firm. They are the utmost courteous people that are always there to help.
If you are just beginning, or want to end a long expensive stalemate that is going nowhere, I highly recommend hiring Jonathan. Literally on day one, more was done for me than over a year elsewhere. I know Jonathan has other clients/cases, but I assure you that you will almost believe it couldn't be true. You are always treated as if you have his un-divided attention and are just as important to him as anything else he may have going on. I truely felt like I was his only client. I don't think one could ask for anything more.
I hired Jonathan after my first lawyer spent 12 months completely destroying my position in the case. Luckily I found Jonathan who was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Jonathan and his team were always very responsive when I interacted with them. I also appreciated that during strategy sessions he always considered the financial impact on me and my family which really goes a long way to demonstrate his compassion for his clients. Jonathan was able to successfully resolve my case in one month after the first attorney made it worse over the first 12 months. I highly recommend him and am so glad to have found him in my time of need. Thank you!
I retained Jonathan and his firm after trying to handle a prolonged and stalled child custody case on my own for over 2 years. Without hesitation, I can say that Jonathan was the right choice for me! As a mother making significantly less income than her ex, I was very concerned about the affordability of retaining an attorney and about my ability to pay. With Jonathan, I never felt that I was being "nickeled and dimed" in fact I know that Jonathan provided his services on many occasions without charge. Jonathan is knowledgeable, experienced and is an attorney with a heart and soul. We are in the wrapping up stages of my case and I feel secure that I will come out on top because of Jonathan and his team. Thank you Jonathan for everything! You saved my sanity!
Jonathan and his team are excellent, 5 stars all around. His knowledge and responsiveness to my questions was outstanding. He is very trustworthy, I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. I highly recommend him and his firm. You will not be disappointed
Jonathan and his team were AMAZING!! He responded to my emails quickly and was extremely helpful in helping me with all my questions. He put me at ease with all my concerns regarding my case and what to expect going forward.. I loved that he was personable as well as knowledgeable. Overall I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Thanks again Jonathan!!
Jonathan successfully handled two child support cases for us in addition to several civil matters. He takes pride in his firm and it shows. He always keeps us informed and is very responsive to inquiries. He has his clients best interests at heart and he is conscientious of making the process as easy and as affordable as possible. His staff is very friendly and helpful. He is our "go to" for legal questions and he always gets the job done, even when others can't. His service is OUTSTANDING and we HIGHLY recommend him.
