    I highly endorse Jonathan Palma's work and legal representation. I have known Jonathan Palma and the employees of his Firm, Palma Law Group, for many years and refer many people, both personally and professionally, to him for representation in the areas of personal injury, bankruptcy, real estate, mortgage foreclosure, and business law. Jonathan's extensive knowledge of the law, respected reputation in the legal community, strong work ethic, and skills in the handling and litigation of cases are just a few of the many admirable attributes that contribute to his success in the handling of his cases. Those persons referred to Jonathan for legal representation have described him as dedicated, committed, result-oriented, diligent, hard-working, well-prepared, and extremely intelligent. It is an honor to know and work with Jonathan Palma and the employees of Palma Law Group.
