I was charged with my second Retail Fraud in the city of Troy. Troy does not take retail fraud lightly, because they have two malls and see it constantly. Every lawyer I consulted told me they could not keep retail fraud off my record besides Jonathan. He helped me to do what other lawyers said was impossible. He has a unique proactive program which I believe did make a diffrence in my sentence. I was charged with disorderly conduct in the end.
John made it very easy for me to figure out what I wanted to do during my situation. He made me feel confident and I knew I could trust him. It was also clear that he knew what he was doing. I'm glad that I chose him to represent me and I would choose him again if ever needed.
I was arrested for a DUI in Ann Arbor this past October. I had a previous offense from another state that was going to come into light. I had registered a blood alcohol level above the .17 limit for Michigan, and so I was facing stiffer charges. I hired Mr. Paul once a court date had been scheduled. Right from the beginning, he came across as very knowledgeable, and put me at ease with the process. He immediately came up with a proactive plan to help my position with the court. By making the most of the time in between court dates with testing, community service, and counselling we were able to get a reduced charge, a much more favorable sentence, and probably saved me from being charged with a felony and keeping me out of jail. I appreciated Jonathans style, and demeanor during the entire process. I would not hesitate to recommend him for anyone who is in a similar situation.
When I was arrested for retail fraud and taken to jail, I could see my life goals shatter in front of me. It left me depressed. I looked up lawyers after I got bonded out and I found Jonathan Paul's website and the way he had explained things on there just left me amazed at the compassion he showed towards his clients. At a stage like this, apart from legal help, you also need some emotional and moral support which I foung in Jonathan. He put me on a proactive program that in the end made me look like a responsible and civilized person in front of the judge. Not only did he give me a good way of handling a situation like this, he also made me emerge as a better person through his program of service and learning. I would not have been so emotionally stable and hopeful if I were not on his program. So I am very glad I hired him as an attorney. It saved me a whole lot of pain I owuld have to go through otherwise.
The best part of having him by my side was knowing that he would answer every question I have with a very calm and detailed way that it made everything look so easy.
My court day was also particularly stress free since he made it all so much easier and got a dismissal deal with the prosecution. In the court room, he did all the talking and I didn't have to do much. In the end I got a year of non-reporting probation with a minor fine.
It seemed that he knee the judge very well and has had a lot of experience with these kind of cases. I highly recommend him.
I am a working professional looking at a promotion until I got a super drunk charge in Oakland County. After discussing my goals w/ 3 other attorneys, Jonathan's proactive strategy made the most sense to minimize risk of losing everything I had worked for. Jonathan's biggest contributions were two fold.
First he was able to get the charge lowered to impaired, the lowest possible charge. As a result I never lost my driving privileges.
Secondly, the proactive measures he recommended went a long way in sentencing and minimized my restrictions and fines.
As a team we were able to meet our overall goals of the case which minimized my risk exposure to losing or at a minimum hindering my career progression. I recommend Jonathan's services to anyone who has the desire to do everything possible from Day1 to help mitigate your overall risk and personal loss.
Jonathan was everything and more than I expected. He was quick to respond and very clearly described the process and how he would be able to help. He was very sincere in helping me through this ordeal and kept me updated throughout the process. I highly recommend Jonathan to anybody in need of assistance in Ann Arbor.
On behalf my niece and the rest of my family, I just want to say thank you Jonathan for all your assistance in this matter. You really helped to ease our concerns. We appreciate your professionalism, positive attitude, encouragement and counsel throughout this initially stressful and scary process. You did an excellent job!!! Thank you!!!
I recently got an MIP while visiting Ann Arbor and was really worried about finding a lawyer from out of state. Jonathan kept me updated via email and text. He used a great proactive approach to get my charges dropped quicker. He was very professional and knowledgable about the whole process. I definitely recommend him,
I needed to work with Mr Paul from a different state due to my arrest being during a visit to Ann Arbor. He was excellent at keeping me up to date on all that was happening and what we needed to do over email and text. It felt like he was just a few miles.
