Great repesentation at a very fair price
We hired Mr. Schopf to handle a complaint about our dog. He put me at ease right away. The complaint was dismissed. Mr. Schopf charged us a very fair price that was less than his estimate. We're now having him handle our house closing.

Advice worth far more than I paid
Mr. Schopf handled my questions like a good ice cream sundae: generous scoops of competence, honesty and forthrightness, drizzled with kindness, sprinkled with a little humor and topped with encouragement. I will be contacting him again in the future for his expertise on other matters relating to the law.

More than a lawyer.
I can't offer enough superlatives to the breathe of knowledge Jonathan possesses on a wide range of areas that effect me and my business on a regular basis. In a short period of time I have come to rely and trust his counsel 100%. His advocating on behalf of my business has generated thousands of dollars in additional revenue. All the while making communication with and about sometimes weighty subjects easy to understand and reach decisions on. I feel fortunate to have him as my legal counsel.

Persistence Personified
Jon Schopf handled the legal portions of selling our home during the latter part of 2010. He provided timely and sound advice, and was always helpful with any questions we had. He displayed superior class and integrity throughout the duration of the selling process, and provided honest feedback during the negotiations for selling our home. In closing, I don't think we could have found a better attorney to handle our business, and I would definitely utilize his services if needed.
