Great lawyer
Jonathan has a great firm with his brother. He made my chapter 7 painless and explained the process each step along the way. The people in his office were outstanding and very helpful. I recommend him wholeheartedly

The Best in the Upstate NY
I was absolutely blessed when I contacted Attorney Warner for assistance in my bankruptcy. He uplifted me and gave me my self-respect. As I was completely humiliated that I was in this position. He treated me with the upmost respect and enlightened my heart. He provided excellent services and continues to be a great professional at all times, even with his funny sense of humor. I enjoyed working with him and will recommend and/or refer him to anyone.

Great attorney!
Jonathan helped me many years ago and was wonderful at that time. Today, over 7 years later I emailed asking for documents. He answered and sent them immediately. I am so impressed! Great guy!

We never would have gotten here without Warner and warner
We were homeless and life happened. When we got on our feet all we had was debt. Mountains of it. Now, less than 4 years later we purchased a 4200 sq ft home, paid off a new car, and are back on track. I couldn’t have done it without Alice and Jonathan.

Great communication, Jonathan accomplished what he promised.
Jonathan was very professional at handling my case. He was straight forward by telling me the options I had. I also liked the fact that he was quick at responding questions I had while my case was opened. I know it was a lot of work but he made it look easy for me. Thank you, Jonathan!

Genuine, knowledgable, and a truly compassionate lawyer!
Jonathan Warner is truly a genuine, knowledgeable, funny, and compassionate lawyer. I came to him very stressed and distraught with the financial situation with my house. Declaring Chapter 7 was a very difficult financial decision I had to make but with Jonathan's guidance and professional advice, he helped me understand the process and the steps I needed to take to make this a smooth process. Jonathan's calm and funny demeanor put me at ease during this stressful situation. Any type of documents that were sent to me, he and his staff would help me understand in laymen's terms. I would recommend Jonathan Warner to anyone who is in financial hardship. Thank you to Warner and Warner!

Great Firm
At what was one of the worst points of my life, Jonathan and his brother Samuel made what I was going through so much easier. They are caring and judgement free. The paralegals are also amazing. Always helpful and very friendly.

Jonathan is an absolute professional who I highly recommend. His assistance with my bankruptcy has helped me more than anyone could imagine. Every question that I posed to him was immediately answered. My chapter 13 was filed quickly and all has gone smooth. He made a difficult situation a life changing experience. Thank you Jonathan.

Excellent/Brilliant on his job
I did not know what to do for months. I was very scared of losing everything that I have. The first day I met Mr. Jon regarding my situation, I went home with a GIB smile and relieved because I could not believe it. He took care of my case right there on the same day. He is a great person and an excellent lawyer. I indeed recommend Mr. Jon. Again, thank you very much for helping me throughout the entire process.

Extremely Helpful and Knowledgeable
I had an extended consultation with Mr. Warner. He was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions. What impressed me was his ability, not only to dispense good information, but that he was patient and listened to what I had to say and considered my input. This is a very important quality as many people sometimes feel that their lawyers just dictate irrespective of the client's concerns. I would definitely recommend Mr. Warner in matters of foreclosure. He is knowledgeable and has the experience.

Great people
Warner and warner both Jonathan and Sam took one of the most stressful situations someone could face and made it much easier. They always made me feel comfortable and at ease. Follow up was top notch and I was always kept in the loop in regards of the process and all questions were answered no matter how silly they seemed.

Solutions to IRS problems
I contacted Jonathan Warner after spending hours on the phone (and in person) with the IRS trying to straighten out an issue with an existing (but recently terminated) installment plan. During his free consultation, he put my fears at ease, he answered every question I had, and he formed and outlined an approach to resolve my issue. He quoted me a very reasonable fee to represent me, and I gratefully agreed. In short order, he emailed me updates on his progress, continuing to answer all new questions I had (even responding to my emails on weekends!) I now have a new agreement in place that I can live with, and the anxiety and uncertainty of my situation has been put to rest. Thank you Mr. Warner for your professionalism, your diligence, and compassion in helping me resolve this. While I hope I never need your services again, I will not hesitate to call should the need arise, and would urge anyone in a similar situation to do so as well.

A Classic Hero
One definition of "hero" is that of the possession of extraordinarily noble qualities. Jonathan David Warner, in online conversation with an attorney I'd engaged the services of, recognized the fact that I was being deceived and victimized by the other attorney. Diplomatically, with a level of subtly and grace that allowed the other party to relinquish his scheme without loss of dignity, John convinced him to transfer my case to him. Upon meeting with me, he ascertained the fact that the bankruptcy procedure I'd paid the other attorney to file was entirely unnecessary; that there is no legal hazard present in my situation. John effected a screenplay-worthy rescue. He saw a person in harm's way; intervened without self-interest; performed the rescue with finesse, and then ... charged his grateful recipient nothing at all. In John D. Warner, you will find a man of honor, an attorney of exemplary knowledge and skill, and, in fact, a classic hero.

Genuine, knowledgable, and a truly compassionate lawyer!
I contacted Mr. Warner based on his positive reviews. Let me tell you, the reviews were spot on! His knowledge, professionalism, heart-warming demeanor, and sense of humor made me feel at ease. I received a huge package from the bank that looked like a summons to court, the package was intimidating, and I had no clue what the documents said or entailed. As a result, I reached out to Jonathan regarding my foreclosure, although I had just completed a trial loan modification, so I wasn’t sure if there was an error or the bank was really taking away my house. Mr. Warner took to the time to look through the documents, translated what it meant, and even contacted the bank to confirm that I was in the clear and my house is not up for foreclosure. We had a great conversation and learned a little bit of why he loves what he does and to help people in need. We need more lawyers like him! Thank you, Mr. Warner for taking the time to assist me. I would recommend him to anyone in need in a heartbeat. He. Truly. Cares.

Top notch Attorney
Friendly, knowledgeable, fierce Top Notch. Jonathan is amazing. Chapter 13 process would have been super intimidating but with Jonathan clearly explaining everything, he made it more than bearable. He was available 24/7. Every time I reached out to him with a question or concern he responded immediately. I felt like I was his only client, I know that I'm not but the obvious care for each of his many clients made this process so much easier. He is witty and very easy to talk to. Feels like a friend looking out for your very best interests. I can't say enough about how highly I recommend him. He is "REAL" and honest. He is the kind of attorney every attorney should aspire to. Clearly isn't in it for the money. He truly loves what he does! Helping the little people fight the big people. I am and will always be very happy about making the initial consult with Jonathan. It was the beginning to getting my life back! Even his office staff are amazing. His brother shows similar qualities! This is a family run office and I felt the difference immediately. Much different atmosphere than larger big name attorney's office. For a process that is going to affect the rest of your life, these qualities are paramount. I will recommend him to family and friends always. To reiterate with conviction, Jonathan Warner = Top Notch.
