Posted by Female Client, a Family client,
Jonathan represented me in a family case several years ago, and continues to represent me as matters evolve over time and need to be revisited. Given many cases are compounded by emotional-driven issues for clients, myself included, Jonathan remains very helpful in taking the time to educate me on what to expect through each step of the process, explaining my rights and keeping me centered on the desired outcome. Jonathan has always taken the time to swiftly answer my questions and counsel me on the most effective ways to address concerns I may have with other parties involved in the case, which I find to be one of the most valuable aspects of our working partnership. When navigating through what can feel like a legal battlefield at times, I remain comforted by the fact the Jonathan is only an email or phone call away. And as a side note, not only did I quickly figure out he was one of the best family attorneys around by working with him, but the attorney representing the other party in my case warned his client that they were up against the best - meaning Jonathan!

I can't say enough great things about Jonathan. I came into the office scared and unsure about the divorce process. Jonathan made me feel at ease and told me that I needed to worry about being a good mom and he would take care of the divorce. He did just that. He also made me feel like a priority. He always had my back and was looking out for my best interest. He treated me with respect and always went above and beyond what was required. He is an outstanding lawyer and person. I would highly recommend Jonathan!

I highly recommend Jonathan over any attorney in St. Louis. I did my research when finding The Marks Law Firm and Jonathan's reputation has superseded all his reviews. When choosing an attorney, you want someone who cares about what you're going through. Here recently, Jonathan actually called me back on a Sunday afternoon to discuss an alarming situation. The man has a way of seeing right through a case! He has helped me get custody of my daughter, looked over various contracts/wills and recently helped advise against polygraphs that were recommended by St. Louis detectives. He's made a huge impact on my family's quality of life! From Family law, criminal defense and looking over various contracts, justice has always prevailed! He will tell you, "It's not about winning or losing", but seriously the man is a flipping genius and doesn't lose. When choosing a lawyer you can count on, choose The Marks Law Firm!

I had an excellent experience working with Jonathan Marks and The Marks Law Firm. Jonathan was easy to work with and helped me keep my divorce expenses to a minimum. My outcome was outstanding.
Jonathan is extremely bright and knows the law. Clearly, he is respected by other attorneys. I would recommend him most highly to anyone seeking a top-flight family law attorney.

When I was thrown under the bus by my ex-wife, I took immediate action by obtaining Jonathan Marks to represent me. Not only did he keep me informed with everything pertaining to my case, but fought for my rights. Overall, he won the case for me! My wife and I are so thankful for everything he did; and, we highly recommend him for anyone looking for a family law attorney, he is your man. Jonathan Marks is a very smart guy to have by your side.

When searching for a divorce attorney I was referred to Jonathan by a friend. My plan was to interview three attorneys before choosing one, but once I met and talked with him I knew I did not need to look any further. He was very understanding, once we had discussed in detail the way my case would be presented he began the process and kept me informed step by step. Jonathan understands the laws completely and can be trusted, which is so important ! I feel comfortable sending family and friends to Jonathan for help, I know he will do the best job for them as he did for me. Thank You!

If you have to go to court, this is the man you want at your side. He is brilliant, his preparation is meticulous, and he will aggressively litigate your case to the best possible outcome. He gave me sound legal advice throughout a six-month ordeal, and in the end he was exactly right on every call (not to mention two steps ahead of opposing council!).

I have hired Jonathan on more than one occasion. In each instance, he handled my cases skillfully and tactfully. At all times, Jonathan remained sensitive to the needs of my family and never lost sight of the best interests of my children. He was extremely approachable and available, which was of paramount importance to me as a client. My last case involved a temporary restraining order with a subsequent motion to modify child custody. In this particular matter, time was of the essence - and Jonathan was able to expedite the proceedings in such a way that I was able to achieve my goals without delay. Ultimately, Jonathan won sole legal custody and sole physical custody for me. I would highly recommend Jonathan to my friends and family, and have done so in the past. He is an outstanding attorney.
