This was my first time going through any type of court proceedings and i was very intimidated and scared by the process... until i met Jonathan Rands. He helped me through every step of the process, he kept me informed on everything and helped me to calm down and actually understand what was happening. His staff was beyond helpful and understanding, each person who worked for him made me feel like a real person, a good person. I had experiences before i met Jonathan Rands, with another lawyer, who made me feel awful about what was happening. They made me feel so much guilt, where Jonathan and his staff made me truly feel like, yes i made a mistake but mistakes happen and it doesn't define who i am as a person. If anything ever happened to me again, there would be no hesitation he would be the person i called immediately.
Not only did he make me feel taken care of and that he would help me, i got the best outcome i could have with the charges against me. Also he made the court proceedings as painless as possible by talking me through each one so i could relax and understand what was happening and why. I always felt like i could talk to him and that no question was too small or silly. He made me at ease and he was a pleasure to work with. Fantastic lawyer, wonderful people skills, wonderful staff, and a superb office as well.
I have nothing even remotely negative to say about him or his company. I would recommend him instantly.
i cant thank him and his fantastic staff enough. A+++++

Referred through Padula and Associates, my case regarding a BC driving license suspension while crossing the US border was handled quickly and effectively without my presence being required.
I'm so glad I hired Jonathan vs settling with the offer that the Prosecution had presented.

Upon meeting with Mr. Rands I immediately felt like my situation was manageable and under control. He presented me with the information that I needed in order to take care of my obligations quickly and in the most cost effective manner. He completely dispelled the overwhelming feeling that I had and simplified everything into a few easy steps. He truly went above and beyond. There is no one else that I would recommend and I couldn't have asked to have a better person in my corner.

Jonathan Rands is one of the best attorneys I've ever had represent me....and I've had many.
If you get a DUI or otherwise you will thank whatever gods you believe in that Jonathan was your choice of lawyers. Not only is he smart and exhaustive and imaginative and discerning, but he really cares.
He takes no shortcuts and is a perfect example of why some people succeed in life while others do not.
He is the reason that excellence is respected. Thank you Jonathan. You changed my life.

I recently hired Jonathan to hand a legal matter for me and was completely pleased with not only the outcome, but the process as well. Jonathan is professional and knowledgeable and his communication was excellent. I was also very impressed by his staff, who also did an excellent job communicating and were very professional.

I hired jonathan over a year ago after reading his reviews on here,I have a very lengthy and storied past including 5 previous dui charges,it had been almost 7 yrs since my last one but needless to say I was worried sick,and for good reason,I was looking at up to a yr in jail,10yrs with a iid,fines and probation,treatment,the whole nine yards.also i must note that this dui was also a refusal.from the first time we met up I knew he was my only hope,however I was heartbroken when I found out how much it would cost to hire him.with help from my family,and begging borrowing and stealing(not really)I was able to retain him.i was almost an hour away from his office so upon our first real sit down he actually bought me lunch at a fancy itallion resteraunt(I was shocked)i can say he was very non Shelant Wich really concerned me,however he has good reason to b as he knows his stuff inside and out,he was always kind,understanding,and helpfull,he worked with me on payments,and has a way of calming your anxiety.after 12 months,a hung jury(at a trial where the prosecutor and arresting officer tried to make me out to b the most intoxicated person to ever walk the planet earth)jonathan had selected the right jury to see through the bs.in the end it was reduced to a wreck less driving and we were able to avoid all the manditory minimums and the judge!yes I still have some concequences,and hoops to jump through,however considering the alternative I am truly grAtefull to mr rands.he was a pleasure to have bye my side,and let me tell u i have been hosed bye every other attorney I've ever done business with,so let me tell u how refreshing it is to know there's a good one out there,with a good heart,he took my freaked out emails,even texts to his personal phone,went above and beyond what any typical attorney would.i would like to call him more a friend than my attorney,he just makes u feel that way.so please trust me when I say,having him bye your side is priceless!

This was my first encounter with law enforcement, and first legal issue I'd ever had. I was only 19 at the time, scared out of my mind thinking i would be in this hole trying to dig myself out for years to come. I didn't know who to go with or what to do. Jonathan was recommended to me, after talking to his secretary, I had already felt comfortable. I knew then that it was going to be the right choice. He is a bit speedy, but it was worth every penny, the outcome was better than I could have imagined. He's a great guy, know EVERYTHING and was great at making sure i was filled in on everything and understood how things worked. Very great full for Jonathan. Hope I never have to see him again.

I originally hired an attorney working under Jonathan's firm who was not responsive and rather incompetent (each time we'd speak, my situation seemed worse and worse). Said attorney left Jonathan's firm while my case was still unsettled, and Jonathan offered to take me on as a client at no additional charge. As soon as Jonathan took over, my situation turned around - in barely a breathe in court, my DUI was reduced to a Negligent driving charge, my fine was reduced to a minimum amount, and I never lost my license. In addition to his professionalism and courteousness, his staff was completely helpful and kind in each interaction.

The first thing that someone looks for after a DUI charge is security. Jonathan, Carrie, and the rest of the staff provided me with nothing short of security and comfort. Having had a previous charge, and experience with one other attorney, I can only say that you most certainly get what you pay for at Jonathan's office. The level of professionalism and security Jonathan and his staff possess helped me get my second charged dropped significantly. I do not think if I had hired anyone else, that that would have been the case. I would highly recommend Jonathan over any of the several other attorneys available in the area - to friends, family, or strangers. Being charged with a DUI is scary and often makes you feel alone against the unknown. Jonathan made himself available after hours to have a "consultation" of sorts to meet with me and hear my story, at no cost or commitment. That evening I knew I was going to hire him to help me for a number of reasons, and education and confidence being the first two. Jonathan was always available via email or text when I had questions pop up and needed answers. If he ever wasn't available immediately Carrie was always there to provide me with information and answers to my many questions. I appreciate and am thankful for everything Jonathan and his staff helped me through. It was the best experience in the worst situation.
