Thank goodness for return phone calls.
I spoke to Attorney Jonathan Voelker today and he was kind enough to let me know that he would review my case and would let me know if he was able to help me. Most attorneys these day's don't even want to talk to you without mentioning how much it will cost before they even know what the case is about. Thank you Attorney Voelker for taking the time out to return my phone call, I appreciate it. Miss Gale Jackson

Expert knowledge, transparent, caring
I consulted Jonathan regarding a matter pertaining to my child’s father. Mr. Voelker surpassed my expectations on many levels. In my personal experience most attorneys are just looking to collect a fee and keep clients coming back. In an attorney client relationship, I find myself, probably like most people out there in those sensitive situations, very vulnerable on many levels, but mostly to what I do not know. Attorney’s integrity, skills, honesty and transparency are very important to me and that’s how I came to know Jonathan. I found him very experienced and committed. He took the time to listen to me and he listened with his 3rd ear. He honored my opinion and the circumstances of my situation. He looked for the best solutions and opportunities to my problem. He struck me as someone who is there to help people who are hurting and resolve those conflicts in an authentic way. That was my experience with Jonathan. I would highly recommend Jonathan and would not hesitate to hire him if the need arises again.

Excellent Client Advocate
I hired Jay to do some work for me and i found his expertise and responsiveness to be second to none. I have had poor experiences in the past and found Jay to be a pleasure to work with and he provide me with sound legal counsel. I know that he was looking out for my best interest and that gave me a lot of confidence in his recommendations.

Professional- Expert in Family Law
Mr. Voelker is extremely smart when it came to knowing all situations. He had the foresight to plan for a number of strategies opposition may have used. He is kind, witty, smart and answers communication FAST. Thank you.

From the fir.st contact to the final Decree Johnathan Voelker was 100% knowledgeable and stayed in contact the entire time. Also what he said it would be it was with no hidden fees. Definately will recommend him and use him again of needed

Business/Personal Prenup - made a tough thing bearable and very reasonable.
Very satisfied with the whole experience and i will continue to use Jonathan in the future. We have a decent size family business and i had to do a prenup to isolate our business ownership from my personal assets. This is not a fun conversation to have and jonathan made it short and concise. Also - we had another referral to a family attorney in the office of our corporate attorney and they wouldn't discuss anything in the consultation and wanted 3 times what Jonathan charged us for just the retainer.

Simply Amazing
From our first conversation to the last signature, Mr. Voelker was everything I could have hoped for in an attorney. His professionalism and knowledge is nothing short of stellar. Mr. Voelker was in constant contact with me throughout the entirety of my case, keeping me updated and informed. There was not one question I asked, that he did not have the answer for immediately. Mr. Voelker's desire to actually help me, rather than just looking to collect a fee, made the entire process much less stressful. I cannot recommend Mr. Voelker enough for an individual or family in need of legal advice or services. If the need arises, I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Professional & very respectable attorney.
I've dealt with a few attorneys in my day, & Mr. Voelker is the one I have the utmost respect for. He provided me tremendous service at a very reasonable rate. He was always straight forward and informative on every aspect. Have used his services for a few other family matters as well, and very impressed. I recommend him foremost to all my friends/family in need of an attorney in his area of expertise.

An excellent Lawyer to have on your side!
Jonathan has been my attorney for 3+ years. During that time, Jonathan has provided more than exceptional services to me and my family. He consistently provides me with valuable information and ensures I am prepared for any upcoming events. His emails are always accurate and clear and his willingness to answer any questions I have make him an invaluable asset to our family. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone who is looking for an attorney that they can count on and provide you with the professional services you are looking for.
