He deserves more then 5 stars!!!
Jon Knows the law! My spouse was looking at a 5-6 yr bid for getting a new charge on parole... Jon got on the case and made sure everything would be alright. He kept great contact with myself and my significant other and was very personable. He had great arguments in court got the job done!!! I mean you would have thought he had a gun in the court house because he was smoking them! The DA didn't stand a chance! If you looking for the best of the best, cream of the crop? This man is it! we are highly grateful for his hard work and dedication. Get with Maknoon, HE KNOWS THE LAW!!!!

Excellent well educated defense attorney
Me. Maknoon has represented and defended me a few times and never disappoints. Fair on price reasonable and they work with you. Just pay the man. You get what you pay for. He responds quick and always did his research on the case to get me the best results. Would definitely recommend his law firm to someone in need of a good defense attorney. He preformed magic on my buddy’s case as well.

Amazing Attorney! He just beat a DUI case!
He was so thorough. He was able to understand this specific set of facts, when every other attorney told me to plead guilty because no one can win a DUI. Well... I guess Attorney Maknoon is now "No One" because he helped me to be found NOT GUILTY! He was prepared and responsive. He was aggressive in court. He cared!

Komron Jon MaKnoon
Komron Jon Maknoon is a very professional lawyer and I highly recommend him to anyone to use in a criminal case. He will listen to you and not judge you by your charges. He worked hard on our case. The day we called him, he met with us and went over my son case with us. He is a very caring person and I highly recommend Mr. Maknoon and Associates. That's why I hired him 5 Stars.

The Gloves are Off.
Jon is not only a friend of many years, but also the most professional lawyer I had the pleasure to deal with. He will stick by your side till the end and will not settle for a plea (unless you want him to). I've dealt with many lawyers stemming from Diffenforfer to Dave Eckle and I'll never use another lawyer ever again... (Hopefully I won't need to).

A Gladiator for the Truth
I hired Komron last year to piece back together the constitutional fourth amendamanet rights (to a defense) of a childhood friend which I believed and still believe had been egregiously violated at the hands of his previous representation. After witnessing what I believed to be both an injustice to a human being and the very system itself rooted in professional ethical violations that resulted in a 2-4 year sentence in State Prison that no one saw coming --- I needed and sought out through trusted referral not only the best advice but a TRUE lawyer. Komron listened, and worked tirelessly to gather facts, interview witnesses, challenge me and everyone, question, and advance this cause for a year against seemingly impossible odds. There were incredibly tough political considerations due to the nature of the case, very technical legal considerations, and a roller coaster of emotions to ultimately crack through a thick and imposing system in search of truth. Inch by inch his team focused on piecing the rights of my friend back together until the pieces formed the container of the whole truth. His legal mind is vast. His will is unparalleled. His values are unshakable. His team is informed and caring. He also loves horses and dogs. He built such a compelling case that I am eternally grateful to say my friend WILL BE home AND reunited with his children and family shortly!!! I would be remiss to not point out how critical Shavon Beasley was to keeping me informed daily, and answering my many many questions. I would not have made it through the process without her knowledge of every phase of the legal process, gift of communication, and genuine empathy. She has a bright future in law. BTW she knows EVERYONE in this town. As a side note I own several businesses and now have engaged this great team for representation in a high technology civil suit to register our complaint. I would without hesitation recommend Maknoon and Associates to anyone in need of a true legal defense...because God don't want to go up against him.

Komron to the Rescue....
Komron and his paralegal-Shavon were hired by me for my fiance for a criminal case. Komron was very attentive to our needs and very truthful with the findings and direction of the case regarding options towards moving forward. Komron was very actively engaged with our case and supported us/family emotionally throughout the whole trial/sentencing process and kept us informed of possible outcomes. Komron was up front when he may not know an answer to predict and always stayed true and focused on getting results for us and kept me in the loop with everything he did. Komron was very knowledgeable and was extremely thorough with his skills that were pertinent to our case. We felt and were in good hands with Komron because he didn't "sugar coat" things to satisfy our needs and that was very honorable. We/I would recommend Komron and his office to anyone for assistance and I already have! Way to go Komron!! "B_____ to the wall....they think your f______ weak!." Mr. & Mrs. Bailey

My daughter's defense
I hired Attorney Maknoon to defend my daughter when she was charged with murder. Komron was very thorough and vigilant at gathering evidence and communicating with me, the prosecutors and the judge. He is very knowledgeable of the law and he didn't leave us in the dark. He assured me that he would work hard to defend my daughter and he kept his word. In the end, the outcome was much better than my fears that haunted me. Komron kept in touch with me on a regular basis and almost daily toward the end. I would hire him all over again if needed.

Not guilty of all charges
I admitted to the things that i did wrong, or in other words the laws that i did violate and was still found not guilty of all 5 charges. 2 felonies and 3 misdemeanors. I got my state corrections officer job back and 13 months of backpay for the entire time i was not able to work. He is a natural and a boss at what he does. He always seems comfortable no matter how bad it sounded to me. I thought he was over confident at one point but he proved me wrong by a long shot. I cant thank him enough for getting me my life and my job back. He is well worth whatever amount of money he wants. He literally made a miracle happen.

The Best.
Amazing in trial and through the whole process. He wins cases other lawyers don't have the courage or time/effort to try to win. He loves to go to trial and It's because hes a gun. He hovers over his seat waiting to cross examine someone, then he takes them down. Very Smart and quick, Very good at what he does. He is the best.

where has he been!!!!
My family has tried many of the "big named" lawyers only to get brushed off, ignored, and eventually ...railroaded (we get in trouble from time to time). We were referred to maknoon only to find that he has his click of clients that he takes great care of...and they seem to take great care of him. He is very down to earth, hits the books, and prepares to win. He takes the time to explain everything and seems to care. A little expensive but if you don't jerk him on money, he will fight like a dog for you. He actually seems to fight for himself because he doesn't appear to like the system. He is a little confusing at times but put him oin front of a jury and he dominates.

He was so good! Amazing in court and in front of a jury. I was and still am impressed.

Knows that law
He takes the time to research your case. Professional environment. He will go to trial and no talk you into taking a plea.

What a joke
Hired me maknoon twice and both times I wish I hired someone else. Both times I hired him he failed to show up to several hearings, he was very money hungry and proved to me his other cases were more important. I paid close to 8000$ for him the second time and I sat in jail never got a visit he was rude to my family members when they contacted him to see what was going on. I got one letter while in jail. Save your money unless you have a big case that seems important to him. He is not professional, he even made fun of my appearance to the cop that wrongful coerced me into an illegal search. If I could give a negative star I would.
