Thorough, patient, knowledgeable, human
Mr. Holtz worked with me on my case and was very patient in explaining the processes and timing of events. He coached me through the different stages and provided clear guidance. I appreciated Mr. Holtz treating me like a person rather than just another case. When needed Mr. Holtz would meet me after office hours to work things through. Towards the end of the case he made sure all options were explained to me and I clearly understood the resolution. I would highly recommend working with Mr. Holtz for his services.

A Slam Dunk
I entered into a contract that literally fell apart after almost one year. I hired Jonathan Holtz to help me when a coworker referred him. I decided to take a chance since I figured, what do I have to lose since I thought I had no chance of getting my money back anyway from the contract I entered into. Jonathan took the case and asked me some questions and for a copy of the contract. I couldn't believe how quickly he got back to me with news that he found loopholes in this bad contract and in no time I got my money back. I was amazed and may I add very happy. Jonathan will be my forever layer. Call him, I'm glad I did.

A PASSION FOR THE PEOPLE!
Attorney Jonathan Holtz came highly recommend from the Union County Bar Association and I now know why. He listens! He explains! He listens again! He explains again! You can ask him a dozen questions and he doesn't break a sweat. Attorney Holtz is a very passionate, patient, knowledgeable, professional and caring individual. He devoted a huge time segment to discuss the law and how it affected my malpractice case. He knows the law inside and out and shares his expertise willingly. You cannot find a more patient, skilled and kind attorney! What a breath of fresh air!

Great Lawyer
Jon was great, I talked to a few lawyers before I hired him. He really took the time to explain everything to me in detail and kept doing it throughout my case. Doesn't just rush you off the phone like other people. I highly recommend!!
