From Donna
Jonathan & Jeremy are always there to consult with. They will answer emails promptly and keep you informed of what the status of your case is. Jeremy is very attentive and a hard working Attorney that will be sure all the legal matters are done in a timely manner. Jonathan is a great negotiator and will fight to get you the most compensation. The insurance company offered nothing and Jonathan was there to make them pay. Both Attorneys are also very good communicators and are also compassionate when they need to be. I would hire them again if needed. The office staff is also there for you regarding appointments, correspondence, email, etc. Just need to mention Kariana, she is awesome!

He deliveries when you need to take action.
If you are looking for a well rounded, well spoken lawyer whom has a great ability to understand your legal issue, then Jonathan is the right lawyer for the job. He is aggressive yet understands how to balance that with finding the most cost effective resolution for his clients. I have used him on several occasions and the outcome was positive on all matters. In my opinion, he is a great option if you swift action couple with a quick resolution. No nonsense guy.

You Need Atty. Comitz
Proud to say I've known Jon for quite some time, long before ever needing his services as an attorney....I could not have been more pleased with the overall professionalism and the focus and determination with which he handled our case. I felt as though he stayed truthful, and kept us very well informed throughout the process, in fact I would say he went out if his way to make sure we were up to date on the most current proceedings. Jon's confidence and determination was infectious, and allowed us, a first time client, to maintain a positive outlook through the process. Fortunately for us that commitment never waivered and it goes without saying, our outcome was favorable. We couldn't have been more appreciative of his services and furthermore, the way he handled the process. I've always admired Jon's commitment to those that are close to him, family and friends first, as well as fellow colleagues and professionals, along with his passions outside of those things.....This is what makes him a good man, and an excellent attorney!

Great lawyer
My father was in a bad motorcycle accident that wasn't his fault. When all was said and done he had 900k in hospital bills. That's when I callsd Jonathan. He was amazing with my parents keeping them up to date and making them feel comfortable. He fought for them and in the end they won there case. He's no nonsense and the lawyer that you want behind you.

An exceptional Lawyer.........!
I am a business owner and have gone through some difficult challenges over the past several years. These challenges included employee theft, breach of contract, bad faith insurance claims, enforcement of management contracts, etc.... For good or bad, I have been in a position to have dealt with many lawyers over the past 15 years in the businesses I have managed, etc. About three years ago, I met Attorney Comitz at a business function and was in the process of looking for a change of legal representation. I can tell you, without hesitation, that I have never dealt with a more efficient, tactful, and effective lawyer than Attorney Jonathon Comitz. He has handled every one of the cases my businesses have thrown at him, and he has managed it with dignity, efficiency, and tact. It Is never anyone's wish to have to deal with legal proceedings, but if you are forced into that circumstance, I can't give a more honest and endorsing recommendation than dealing with Attoney Jonathon Comitz. He has helped me and the businesses I manage beyond measure. I feel lucky to have him represent me in every capacity.

Settling an estate,and Making our Wills
Jonathan was an excellent lawyer,when my Aunt passed away we needed a lawyer who was honest,and wouldn't drag it on since we had property to sell. Jonathan was highly recommended to us by a friend. We were very impressed by his service,he was very professional and treated us like we've known him for years. He handled everything for us and was in constant contact informing of the status of the estate. We also had him draw up my husbands,myself and our daughters wills. When we did sell my Aunts house he also handled the closing for us. We were very pleased and satisfied with our dealings with Jonathan.

I highly recommend him.
Attorney Comitz handled my case with great care. Considering the situation with my case, I feel as though my best interests were his top priority. While being a very professional attorney, he still treats you as a human being.

Excellent and Aggressive
Handled a complex contract case for me. Went against my ex-partner who had a big firm defending him and we beat them in trial. Great trial lawyer. Well worth the money.

Was great for us
Saw the last review... That sure isn't the lawyer we got. He handled our auto accident. The insurance company fought us for almost 1 year and only offered $7,500 to settle. We hired Attorney Comitz and he was a pitbull. He got our family $100,000. We owe him a lot as he helped us so much.

Legal Scholar Who Truly Cares
Jonathan successfully represented me throughout a very challenging custody dispute. Even though the eventual and final outcome is positive for my child, as you can imagine, the entire ordeal was very emotional and difficult. I most value the rock solid and consistent legal advice Jonathan provides and his ability to just level with me when necessary. He is an authentic scholar and counselor of the law. A pro in the courtroom. Excellent listener, quick thinker, good negotiator and able to bring it all right back around to the fundamentals and the facts. He is responsive and has a top notch administrative support team in his office. Jonathan has also provided guidance with child support issues, divorce and an auto accident settlement.

Extremely satisfied client
After recieving a recomendation from a close personal friend, my wife and I decided to retain Atty.Jonathon Comitz for representation both for our personal and corporate legal matters. In this difficult economic time one of our corporations required Atty. Comitz to negotiate with creditors and suppliers and reach mutually exceptable agreements to avoid Bankrupcy, Forclosure and Judgements which would ultimatly collapse our other corporation and personal finances. Atty. Comitz has engaged in multiple negotiations to reach a desirable outcome to this difficult time in our familys life. Atty. Comitz has proven himself to be a great asset to our company and familys future growth.

Very Trustworthy, Went above and beyond my expectations
Jonathan has handled 2 cases for me. The first was a non-compete agreement with my former employer and currently is handling an auto accident injury case. He has always kept me informed to what was going on with either of my cases. I recieve emails, text messages and phone calls following up on everything. I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone needing representation.

Would Not Recommend
Cannot Believe after almost 1 year with our Son's Malpractice case 100 % confirmed When he was Born. Nothing wants to be done Now. Just a Waiting game all this time and Nothing now.. In the meantime this so called Doc can be harming more babies . Only if they saw and knew what he/we went thru I think a letter a least would have been sent Liked was told to us would have been done. But Nothing Now. It's a shame how Prisoners he took their case and won and I'm sure handfuls of fake cases and get good results but our poor little baby that suffered badly and gets No Justice very sad.

Expensive with NO RESULTS
Was hired to settle a real estate problem. Was told it would cost about 5,000.00. $8,000.00 later we were not one step closer to settling. He led us to believe we had an agreement, that we did not, for over a YEAR. Waited for HIS appraiser for over 6 month, and gave up on waiting. When we forced him to answer some very direct questions.....he withdrew. We had to hire another attorney to finish his job, who did much better. He was elusive and expensive, and it was a horrible experience.

Not so Hot
Hired to withdraw from a club membership. It should have been an easy matter, but it dragged on forever. He cancelled our first hearing the DAY OF, at 7:30am. Told us it was a great thing.....but withheld from us the information. Led us to believe that the opposing attorney agreed to something that he didn't for over a year, and kept cancelling hearing after hearing. When he was finally questioned on this, he simply withdrew and kept THOUSANDS of DOLLARS. Never a refund, or an apology.....didn't even find out about his deceipt until we retrieved our file and hired another attorney, who by the way, forced him to withdraw legally. He had no intention of even appearing before the Judge to do so. Thought he would do a much better job, since he was referred to us by another Lawyer who was a friend of ours. He certainly didn't gain our trust, or respect.
