Jonathan Baner is a remarkable attorney. Moreover, he is a truly brilliant and noble man who's integrity is evident after only a few minutes of being in the same room with him. I was fortunate to call Mr. Baner's phone number following being served with papers by the police. The documents informed me that my ex-girlfriend - who I hadn't seen for 2 months prior - had made false DV claims and was petitioning for a protection order.
I thought I was doomed, I had no idea what to do. I didn't have enough money for an attorney and the hearing was in a matter of days. Not expecting much, I decided to call a law office in order to try and mooch some legal advice for a direction and called Jonathan Baner. At a time when I didn't think much of people in general - who would have thought it would be a lawyer that would be the one to change this negative outlook? Even though I couldn't pay him the complete amount of the very reasonable fees for his services - he still offered to defend me and my name against these bogus allegations. Just thankful for Mr. Baner's kind gesture, I was expecting limited attention like I would expect at any place of business under the same circumstances. I couldn't have been more wrong. Jonathan Baner defended me like I was some wealthy, high-profile man of status who paid up front in full and gave my situation 10x more effort and attention than I ever could have expected.
Not only did Mr. Baner get me a favorable ruling, he provided me an example of the type of man I wish to strive to eventually emulate someday. I will never forget what he did for me when I was in that helpless and confusing place in my life I found myself in. Inasmuch, I will never use another attorney in the future, other than Jonathan Baner.
