Steven Jonas lied to me repeatedly when handling a case of my mother's estate. A Wells Fargo employee stole a significant amount of money from her. The employee was found guilty and sent to jail. I never recovered all the money stolen because Jonas lied to Wells Fargo and to me. It was astonishing how badly he misrepresented the situation. He did not tell me that his partner, who I considered my lawyer, has left the firm. He told me the partner was too busy and he was handling it. He did not file the proper paperwork to close the estate. He did not tell the bank that my mother had died. When I went to obtain other legal representation he would not send them the files. It was a disaster. My mother died in unnecessary emotional pain and confusion due to his mishandling of the suit.

We had some contract dispute questions with a general contractor.
While looking for a lawyer, Steven Jonas was recommended by another local lawyer that did not handle this type of work. Although I may not recommend this, but we went directly to his office without calling for an appointment. We were very happy with his staff, and pleasently suprised that he would see us as soon as he was finishing up with another client. I am sure we were cutting into his lunch time, but he took the time in his busy schedule to see us.
We brought along our paperwork that the general contractor had given us. He looked it over as we asked questions, many of them. He asked us some questions and put our mind to ease as we were very nervous and upset. He was very personable, friendly and honest.
We would highly recommend him.

I was with a different attorney that was partnered with Steven Jonas when the took my personal injury case, well after a couple months went by I gave them a call to update on new found medical diagnosis, well when I called I was told my current attorney was no longer with the firm and that Steven Jonas took my case... I was not happy about this but Steven Jonas assured me that my former attorney he was partnered with was still apart of my case, well along with that being a total lie he had no experience in personal injury and never returned my calls.
I finally found my original attorney to take back my case and also was told that Steven Jonas stole my file from him and lied about many things...

Mr. Jonas has handled a variety of work for me over the past several years. He is one of the most ethical and trustworthy individuals I know and highly regarded as both an attorney and philanthropist in the state of Florida. His attention to detail and ability to use sound common sense has proven very successful in each interaction I have had with him to this date. I don't believe I have met someone with a stronger work ethic in the legal field and still have the ability to find individual time for thier client. I have recommended Mr. Jonas on several occassions to other colleagues and have found the same level of committment and success as well. I do not hesitate in writing this review and highly recommend Steven K. Jonas for one's legal needs or basic advice.

I have been a Realtor for 12 years and worked with many attorneys. Steven was referred to me by a family law attorney to handle my Real Estate business and I was impressed with his work ethic, knowledge of the law and experience. We started with having him close my Real Estate sales and expanded to every aspect of real estate law to consulting my clients on Short Sales before , during and after the sales. Steven is always ready to help and my clients have been very impressed which is a great reflection on me. Steven is my personal attorney and his firm handles personal injury as well. I'm still amazed by how Steven will go out of his way to help me and my clients and how he is able to answer every question without hesitation. I've worked with numerous attorneys and Steven is by far the BEST. I've talked with many people that know him - including other attorneys and the reaction is always Steven is a great guy and an awesome lawyer. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STEVEN JONAS AS AN ATTORNEY AND A PERSON OF ETHICAL CHARACTER.

Steven has provided top notch legal services throughout the state of Florida for over the past 12 years. From the height of the real estate boom to the collapse of the housing market, Steven has acquired the practical experience and knowledge as he has represented both lenders and borrower's in various real estate actions. Additionally, Steven has a broad range of litigated and transactional legal skills, as he has had the opportunity to represent various insurance companies, as well as, provide defenses for consumers who have been wrongfully sued by large corporations. Steven has an advantage in that he has worked for both the Plaintiff and the Defendant and this unique experience has afforded him the intricate knowledge of both sides of the law. Steven is also well versed in Wills, Trusts and Estates and he can handle a range of services from the drafting of your Will to the creation of a Land Trust to the filing and completion of your probate action. Overall, I would highly recommend Steven, as I have had personal experience with his firm regarding all of the above legal matters. Each time, I was provided with a competent, aggressive and professional approach, which resulted in a timely resolution to my legal issue.

As someone who has worked in the legal field, I highly recommend Mr. Jonas. I needed assistance with a real estate-escrow matter. I couldn't get help from anyone else. Mr. Jonas took the time to investigate the matter and advised me of my options. He has always been very straight forward. I definitely will refer my friends and family to him. It is a nice change to have an attorney who actually puts his client's interest first.

Steven spent over an hour on a consultation. He was knowledgeable and professional. I never felt rushed. He explained everything very clearly and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him.
