Jonathan was everything I could have asked for in an attorney. Very responsive and trustworthy. He made sure that my record stayed clear!
Jonathan was very professional and very helpful when dealing with my case. I would highly recommend Jonathan for representation when dealing with charges such as but not limited to MIP, UIP, open intox, and noise violation.
Jonathan was very professional. He would contact me back very quickly. He was the first lawyer to appear for court (quite early too!) and saved me a lot of time. Highly recommended.
Jonathan recently helped me with a court case. He was very responsive at all times and immediately answered any questions I had pertaining to the case.
I was recently charged with Retail Fraud 3rd degree. I've never been in trouble with the law before therefore I wanted the best attorney to represent me. In doing my research I came across Jonathan's website. After I read through his clients reviews, his proactive approach and his professional background I gave him a call. Because he took applications as to who he represents, I knew he would not be too busy for me and my thousands of questions...And I was right! Jonathan was available to me via text, phone and email 24/7..literally! He replies to my texts at midnight! (No joke)
Needless to say, my case was dismissed and I can't thank him enough. I truly believe that his proactive approach along with his previous experience working as a prosecuting attorney, all worked in my favor! If you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, call Jonathan! He fought hard for me and he will definitely do the same for you.
Facing multiple misdemeanors and, quite frankly, unsure of what to do, I began as many would: with a simple Google search. What I thought would be an arduous task - a painstaking exercise stretching over multiple days, involving a myriad of calls, emails, and consultations - turned out to be quite the opposite, and in mere hours I knew exactly how to precede: hire Jonathan.
As a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School and a Super Lawyer, Jonathan posses an unassailable pedigree - a pedigree that places him squarely above nearly all defense attorneys in the area. While, of course, a good resume is requisite to being recognized as a preeminent attorney, that is not why I chose to hire Jonathan.
Upon speaking with Jonathan, it was immediately evident that he was - and is - different from the other equally well qualified attorneys with whom I spoke in a simple yet immeasurably important way: he cared. I wasn't a case with facts, but a human being with a story. From the very outset, Jonathan believed in me, and believed that the mistakes I made were just that - mistakes - and, as such, were not indicative of me as a person. To this day I remain adamant that this belief in me was integral in persuading the judge to levy the sentence s/he did.
This brings me to the result of the case, which is, naturally, the most important part, but, for the sake of brevity, I'll keep it short: Jonathan got me the shortest probation ever handed down in this particular courtroom. Even better, due to an agreement Jonathan struck with the prosecutor, mere weeks from the date of sentencing and upon compliance with the terms of my probation, all charges will be wiped from my record, and it will be as if nothing ever happened.
If you want the best - an attorney who will work tireless on your behalf and will get results - the answer is simple: hire Jonathan Paul.
I emailed Jonathan Paul in a state of desperation after receiving a second MIP days before I was suppose to leave to study abroad in Spain. He emailed back within fifteen minutes and began working on my case the next day. He made sure studying abroad was not interrupted. While in Spain, he kept me informed the entire time via email. He came up with a pro-active plan towards getting this second MIP off my record. Not only did he achieve that but he also made sure I was allowed to leave for college the day after my court case( you usually are not allowed to leave the state of Michigan in these situations). He got me the lowest sentencing possible because the judge was impressed with the pro-active steps I took. I would strongly recommend him for anyone in a similar situation.
Mr. Paul is an amazing lawyer and had me in and out of court with same day pre-sentencing and sentencing. I received HYTA and all the charges will never show up on my record. He responds to e-mails and texts very promptly and is very helpful and reasonable!
Mr. Paul took me as an out of state client with a local OWI. I am required to travel at any given time which proved to be very hard to have my case resolved. Without reservation, Mr Paul was able to navigate me through all the legal issues while I was in other countries and states. I cant even describe the motivation and how dedicated he was. My outcome was minimal compared to what it could have been and I stress minimal. He worked his way around the Judge and after sentensing to get me in and out of the courthouse. He stood by me. I was definately blessed to have hired Mr. Paul and recommend with the highest recommendation. He saved my time, stress, and my career.
After searching through 7 different lawyers, chatting with 5 of them, and meeting with two, I chose to hire Jonathan Paul. He was quick, responsive,and incredibly proactive. My case had an even better outcome than I expected, and that was all due to Jonathan and his preemptive system. I hope to never need an attorney again, but if I do, Jonathan is my first call.
