Review Dave Jones

About Me

David W. Jones is a specialist in family law. Family law has been a major focus throughout his 21 years of practice. In the last 14 years, he has worked exclusively in family law in Port Orchard. He has extensive trial experience and in-depth knowledge of how best to tailor his argument to the individual judges in the county. His knowledge and experience in every aspect of family law make him an excellent choice if you have a family law legal issue you fear may have to go to trial.

David W. Jones is in front of a judge an average of three days a week; in more than 90% of his cases, he helps people work out their differences and get on with their lives. He sees each case as unique and works to craft agreements that fit each distinctive family and individual situation.

Whether it is necessary to litigate the case or if negotiated settlements are possible, David W. Jones has the ability to educate his clients on the law and coach them through crisis by assisting them in making reasoned decisions in difficult times.

He has worked on some of the most difficult child custody issues in the county, including several trials on relocation of children. He is married with two children and uses his own family as a touchstone when helping people through the child custody process.

David is an active member in the Port Orchard community. He is a member of the South Kitsap Rotary and he was named Rotarian of the Year in 2013-2014.

David is well-regarded in the legal community. He was voted best attorney in South Kitsap in 2011 and was runner up in 2012. He currently assists other attorneys to gain family law knowledge by teaching continuing legal education seminars in Kitsap County..
