Jay Kirschner is an excellent Advocate. His knowledge and professionalism are unmatched. He helped me through my initial divorce proceedings and through many subsequent motions and mediations over a twelve-year period. It was impressive to observe Jay in the courtroom environment. His preparation and attention to detail in all things was fantastic. He also has a great capacity to listen to and understand the needs of his client. In my opinion, Jay is truly a credit to the legal profession.

I can not thank, nor recommend Mr. Kirschner enough!! I was informed he was one of the best by friends and associates, but I now know he indeed is. He helped me during a very difficult trial when the "odds" were not in my favor. He prepared and collected information, and thoroughly presented the facts to show my concerns and gain an INCREDIBLE outcome. I could not have asked for a better ending. It would not have been possible if Mr. Kirschner and his office had not stood beside me, personally and professionally. I will never be able to express my appreciation enough.

Mr. Kirschner and his staff are extremely professional. I have been a client for the last three years and have been very pleased with the work they have done on my behalf. I have recommended Mr. Kirschner's services to friends and family, and would most certainly hire him again in the future if the need arises.

I had a very litigious, emotionally charged, and complex family law case. Mr. Kirschner is extremely skilled and well versed in the law. He kept me updated on a regular basis and explained his strategy and discussed all options with me. His fees were very reasonable. If you need a conscientious, skilled, extremely knowledgeable attorney, then Mr. Kirschner is the attorney you need to hire.

Jay stepped into a disorganized pending trial and made all the difference in the outcome (a 29 minute not guilty on sex offense).He was thoughtful, perceptive, organized, and able to rescue the case from a certain conviction to a successful conclusion. He was able to think outside the box, dedicated to tracking down trailing details, and dogged in his depositions for needed information. His overall strategic decision making during the course of the trial allowed the Judge to accept evidence whereas prior attempts had been unsuccessful. Thus he not only managed the client and his very emotional family but he also skillfully managed the Judge and the jury. His style with the jury matched what they needed and he was in control the entire time. Without his brilliance, common sense, and dedicated determination the verdict would have condemned this client to life in prison and registration as a sex offender. The complainant was six years old and the motivation from the family was persistent. The prosecutor was skilled and experienced and graciously admitted defeat. Jay should be the first one on your list to call.

I was working as a trial consultant for a child sexual abuse case with a lawyer that just didn't understand how to defend it. At a point of crisis with the uninformed & unwilling to learn lawyer, Jay was brought in as co-counsel. As I expected, Jay took charge of the issues the other lawyer did not understand. Jay, myself and our expert all worked together as a team and enjoyed a stunning 29 minute deliberated "Not Guilty" verdict. Working with lawyers all around the country, Jay is extremely competent and detail oriented. Without hesitation, I would recommend Jonathan Jay Kirschner again and again!

Mr. Kirschner was attentive--always keeping me "in the loop" during the pretrial period. He even gave me his cell phone number in case I got nervous or had questions after hours. During the trial he was amazing in the court room, reminding me that Perry Mason still exists!

EXCELLENT, above reproach. I have had the unfortunate opportunity of employing many lawyers for my son's heroin addiction criminal actions and Mr. Kirschner was above reproach. Mr.Kirschner was always available by phone or email, he immediately responded to any questions or requests, went above and beyond in representing my son in two different cases on two different occasions, one of them out of the county where he is employed and I had been so satisfied with his in county performance that I again contacted him to represent my son, even though I was told over and over I needed a local attorney. Mr. Kirschner takes a personal interest in his clients. While my son was in jail, he also had the opportunity to talk to other inmates who utilized Mr. Kirschner and they too highly recommended him to my son.

Mr. Kirschner is one of those very few attorneys who removes the intimidation of the legal system from the equation. His legal knowledge is complimented by his communication skills. The importance of identifying and retaining a quality lawyer crucial to any legal action. Too many lawyers are removed and detached from the their client and the case. Mr. Kirschner and his staff display a level of empathy that is beyond reproach. Specifically, I would have to make note of his Paralegal Juanita Dunn. She is the point person and always makes the client feel at ease and represented by the firm. Look no further than Jonathan Jay Kirschner. He will fight for you but he will also be honest when it is difficult to hear the truth.
