Jonathan Rocks!
Divorce is terrifying. I’m glad I retained Jonathan to guide me through this painful experience with incredible empathy, brilliance, and care. And if you happen to be a lawyer and decide to represent yourself in your own divorce, Jonathan will politely pulverize you - just ask my ex.

Helped with divorce case
Highly recommended. Honestly, fair and truthful. Predicted likely outcome of divorce upfront with high degree of accuracy, which was validated when it went to trial. Costs extremely reasonable as well.

Excellent lawyer, very highly recommended!
Divorce and child custody issues can be the most gut-wrenching and stressful of your life. Jon Von Kohorn helped me with a complicated custody dispute and I greatly appreciated his steady, insightful, and compassionate approach. He was always several steps ahead, anticipating pitfalls and problems. He is very fair about his billing, and he is clearly focused on helping rather than racking up fees. I highly recommend him.

5 Star Service
Jon was referred to me by another attorney to handle a post-divorce judgement. His professionalism, knowledge of the law and attention to detail helped me win the judgement immediately. I was extremely satisfied with the work he did and would recommend his services to anyone in need of legal counsel.

Very Highly Recommend
Jon represented me in my divorce with a difficult ex. He walked me through the emotional process and kept the integrity of our side. He kept me well informed on the status of my case and what I can expect based on the law in my state. I felt confident that I would resolve things quickly and that any delays would not be on my end. He made sure all paperwork was in order with me and my ex so that we would have no issues at court. He was the middle man with a bitter plaintiff and kept all interactions professional and kind as possible. Jon is absolutely wonderful and cost efficient.

Highly Recommend
I was recommended to Jon Von Kohorn highly from a family friend’s lawyer (who practiced another branch of law), and I am extremely grateful for the recommendation. It actually took me a confusing and tense at times few years to finalize my divorce - including a hiatus I am beyond thankful to him for recommending and following-up with me on as I became mentally better prepared to continue the divorce proceedings. John was consistently and 110% of the time professional, determined, knowledgeable about all the new questions I had that arose at each “twist” of my divorce, unwavering is his no-nonsense yet compassionate advice to me, insightful as to the personal as well as practical, feasible and pragmatic outcome I deserved, and PATIENT with me; which included therapist-like abilities as well. I will always thank John for getting me through it a better and saner person with a new and improved balance and confidence. My outcome has been better than I imagined, and I can say this now feeling at peace, and with a huge sigh of relief.

Excellent custody lawyer
Jon represented me in a CT custody dispute, and did a phenomenal job arriving at a strong working parenting agreement despite dealing with my ex spouse who is both uncooperative and lives out-of-state. I was extremely impressed with Jon’s work ethic, responsiveness, compassion, and efficacy.

He'll get you through the complex messy stuff. Really knows what he is doing.
Jon is very professional, knowledgeable attorney who puts the utmost care in his practice. I approached him after realizing I had to get out of a nightmarish marriage. After finally to decide to go through with the divorce, he helped me to navigate an extremely complex and difficult divorce. I honestly didn’t know how the situation could be resolved as my ex wanted to keep the house but was unable to because of her extremely poor credit. In addition, there were a number of very unusual circumstances surrounding the marriage that are too and difficult to get into, but this was definitely not a divorce that was going to be easy to get through by any stretch of the imagination. He was able to guide me through these extremely turbulent waters and protect me from a very aggressive ex-spouse who was determined to make things as difficult as possible. He helped me to stay the course and understand all of the nuances of the process in order to get the best result. I honestly thought based on my experience with my ex, I was going to lose way more than I did. Jon was able to get a result that ended up being way more favorable to me than I thought. It wasn’t an easy road, but he got me through it and now I have my freedom balanced with a situation where I could spend quality time with my children. I’m not sure how I kept my sanity throughout the divorce but having Jon to bounce ideas off of and provide no nonsense assessment of the situation, (he doesn’t BS) I was able to set my expectations accordingly. Note, he always made himself available (even when he was off the clock and it was all said and done, he still made himself available for questions). He was also extremely fair and reasonable in his billing. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney who actually cares and can get you to a resolution especially if you find yourself in a complex messy situation.

Jonathan provided me legal representation that surpassed all my expectations, and I would recommend him without any reservation. He possesses a valuable combination of solid legal expertise, strong communication skills, and superlative professionalism. Often times I would be frazzled/nervous about my child custody case and he always provided me reassurance. The Von Kohorn Law Firm’s responsiveness and support left a lasting, positive impression on me!!

No regrets!
Jonathan VonKorn, Esq. made what would normally be a nightmare a smooth process. His genuine, polite and confident demeanor paired with his clear, knowledgeably, timely and reliable results are a breath of fresh air. It is clear Atty. VonKohorn is respected by the courts and his colleagues. He has gone on to refer me and my associates to several other equally respectable attorney’s in other areas. He is a testimony to honor, ethics, and hard work.

Excellent Lawyer!
I cannot say enough positive things about Jonathan Von Kohorn and The Von Kohorn Law Firm. He helped me immensely with my divorce and really took the time to explain the process to me. Jon was personable and down to earth. He made me feel comfortable to ask questions, and I felt as if he showed so much respect for me as a stay at home mom and as a human being. He explained the financial side of my divorce agreement and helped me get a settlement that was more than fair. I would recommend The Von Kohorn Law Firm to everyone, and I am grateful to Jon for his hard work, patience, and kindness.

Standing ovation for this man
Absolutely amazing!!! Very helpful, well priced and walked me through every step of the process of getting me child support and changing the visitation schedule for my son. During a process like this it is such a comfort to have someone on your side who is fighting for yours and your child's best interest and I will definitely be using him for any and all future disputes with my ex.

Mr. S.K.
Jon Von Kohorn has guided and counseled me through two years of complex post-divorce settlement actions with skill, compassion, and above all, flawless strategic insight. He has been empathetic throughout the entire process, which during emotional highs and lows, I have always found to be tremendously comforting. But, most important, he has proven to be a shrewd and savvy negotiator, with an uncanny sense of just how to deal with all sides. I would (and have) recommend him without reservation to anyone in need of the best family law advocate in Connecticut!

Great Attorney!!
Jon came into my divorce after 2 years of mediation. He put me on track and got my divorce completed in a very timely manner. He is smart, hard working, dependable, and a great communicator. He's truly a wonderful person, and VERY good at what he does.

Excellent Attorney for Legal Representation
I have had the pleasure of retaining Jon Von Kohorn for legal representation in my post divorce proceedings. Jon has been a pleasure to work with as he is always available via text, email, and yes...even phone! Jon is easily approachable, has a firm grasp of divorce law in the State of CT, and insightful. HIGHLY recommend.

Was a great lawyer!
Jonathan is the best lawyer ever. First of all I called several lawyers and none of them were willing to help me with my legal troubles. He was the only one who explained to me my legal issues. We scheduled a meeting and in person he was very kind to me and reassured me that he will do whatever it takes for me to win my case. Not only is he an amazing lawyer, but he is also a wonderful human being.

Ecstatic!
After self-representing and experiencing several losses in family court, I turned to Jon for help. He was patient and kind with me and acknowledged the injustice that I had experienced. I chose to hire Jon for an appeal. I knew that it would be difficult to win, but I knew that I needed to seek justice for my children. We just received word that we won the appeal! The unjust ruling has been reversed! I am so happy! I am grateful that Jon was so dedicated and thorough with my case. I am so relieved that I didn't have to live the the burden of that injustice any longer. Jon is an excellent attorney and an amazing person. Thanks so very much for your expertise, Jon!
