Highly recommended
I hired Jon to assist with a minor criminal matter. He was very knowledgeable about the process, and after our initial discussion pursued a resolution of my case immediately. Courts have been delayed over the past year so this took longer than expected but with Jon's professional assistance everything worked out great. I would highly recommend him to others in a similar situation.

New beginning
I highly recommend Tomeo Sills, LLC. I had a very difficult case, I contacted few other lawyers before contacting Tomeo Sills, LLC, they all had the same answer, my case was lost and I was going to jail, none of them took the time to listen to the whole story. Then I saw Tomeo Sills, LLC advertisement on google, and decided to contact them. I met with the lawyer Jonatan Sills, and after patiently listening to my case, he was honest, and straight forward, he told me that it was a difficult case, but not a impossible one. After a long and unavoidable process, Jonatan Sills got the deal of my life, it was my freedom and a clean background. Now I have my life back, thanks to God and Jonatan Sills.

Outstanding Attorney
Jonathan Ross Sills is an outstanding Traffic Attorney. He walked me through every step of the process up until the ticket dismissal, and everything happened as he predicted. He asked all the right questions from me in preparation for my defense and had the ticket dismissed. I could not be more pleased with his professionalism and results. Two thumbs up, way up!!!

DUI Expert
It has been such a smooth experience working with Jon which is what one can ask for when facing court and arrests. Jon is thoughtful, articulate, understanding, accommodating and very professional at the same time. His office keeps all the records up to date all the time, proactively manages and keeps client informed. Highly recommend!

Great dealership, excellent representation
I had the pleasure of working with Jonathan Sills. He helped me every step of the way and kept me well informed. From the beginning, he assured me everything would be okay. I thought everything was over for me but Jonathan took time to break down the facts along with the law and made me confident that I had a chance to fight my case. I received updates via email and text so I knew things were being taken care of. He is a highly respected attorney. I am forever thankful for Jonathan representing me. I feel like a million pounds have been lifted off my shoulders!!!

Extremely professional and knowledgeable
Mr. Sills was beyond professional and helpful throughout the entire legal process. When I first reached out to him I had no idea what to expect but he offered reassurance and guidance from our first conversation. Never once did I feel as though judgement was being passed on the situation at hand. Would highly recommend him and his firm to those who may find themselves in need in the future.

Excellent lawyer!
Excellent lawyer! Mr. Sills calls you personally the same day! He is very professional and very knowledgeable! He will tell you about the process and tells you the possible out comes! You are always kept up to date as to what is going on with your case. He helped me out of an extremely stressful situation and got my case dropped. I definitely would call him again if I needed a lawyer in the future as well as recommend him to a friend who needed a Laywer!

Money well spent!
I was arrested for DUI. The following morning I called a friend that recommended Mr. Sills who had helped him out in some traffic citations. Taking his advice I called the Law Office of Mr. Sills, he answered his phone directly. I being very concerned about the charges against me Was a nervous wreck. Mr Sills calmly explained to me what I was to expect and gave me a time and date we could meet at his office. My wife and I attended the meeting, we left feeling relieved and much more sure footed in the future road we would have to endure. The majority of the stress in a situation like this is the not knowing what the future holds from punishment to even knowing what to expect in a courtroom. The entire process would be unbearable without the guidance of seasoned professional such as Mr. Sills. His calmness and certainty in a family’s time of chaos and confusion was greatly appreciated. The best result from my case that we hoped for was achieved, and my wife and I left the courtroom with my charges being dismissed. My record will remain clean and I can continue to provide for my family thanks to the mild mannered Mr. Sills. Rarely in life do you get a chance to give a positive review about a experience. This one was my pleasure. Thanks again Law Offices of Tomeo Sills.

Attorney Jonathan Sills exceeded all of my expectations as my legal counsel during a very stressful time in my life. His calm demeanor, sharp intellect, and overall professionalism proved to be the perfect combination of skills and abilities needed to win my case. Whether it was requesting the DMV hearing to get the arresting officer in question under oath and on record, or lining up solid expert witnesses, Attorney Sills was always one step ahead of the prosecution. At all times, he made me feel supported and protected throughout the legal process. I was beyond satisfied having Jonathan Sills as my attorney. It is without hesitation that I give my full recommendation.

One of the very best lawyers I have ever seen
Jonathan helped me twice in my really tough criminal cases and handed it really well. He helped me to gain the results I was seeking for both times (Reckless driving (speeding) and another case). He also explained in details on what to do in terms of interaction with officials. The first case Jonathan made off the record and converted into a speeding ticket (even though I speeded 3 times greater the speed limit on a highway). My second case was lasting for about 5 month and in the end we had the outcome which was wanted. I highly recommend Jonathan as a lawyer and a good person you can trust.

Best lawyer
I had a speeding ticket which I think I should not get at all. With Mr Sills’s help, I did not need to go to court or pay the ticket. Will strongly suggest him if u need any help.
