Jonathan Halperin is a Great Lawyer
I sustained life-changing injuries due to someone else’s negligence. It was a very difficult time in my life and I needed representation that was supportive and encouraging. The Halperin Law Center was by my side to the hilt from the moment they took on my case until it was resolved, and always with a smile on their face. But just as importantly their guidance and advice helped me make decisions along the way which contributed to the overall healing process. Jonathan Halperin is professional and energetic yet empathetic and compassionate. Jonathan kept me informed with updates on a regular basis. He was very easy to talk to, open and upfront. It was comforting to know he had control during such an important time in my life.

Jonathan got Justice for me.
I had a bad injury at work when I was only 19 years old. My life was turned upside down. Seven different attorneys refused to take my case, but Jonathan believed in my case and in me. I was so happy to finally have someone who would fight for me. Jonathan never gave up and he was always available to me and my family. I trusted Jonathan with my case, and he got justice for me and provided for my financial future. I can now move on with my life and look forward to what lies ahead.

Amazing Man. Amazing Lawyer.
Jonathan Halperin and his team have been representing me for quite a few years now. Jonathan took on a case that most lawyers would never even consider due to the complexity and sensitivity of the matter. The day that Jonathan took my case was a life changing day for sure. He has been nothing but incredible throughout every step of the legal process. He has treated the case with the respect it deserves and he knows what he is doing. Not only is Jonathan an amazing man to know, he is an absolutely incredible lawyer. I am beyond appreciative of everything he has done for me and continues to do for me. He is a fighter, and I don't foresee him ever giving up on me and my case. Thank you Jonathan, you have helped me in so many more ways than you will ever know.

Thank you!!
My great appreciation to the quality of legal service that Halperin Law Center provided to me. For the last 15 years I reached Mr. Halperin for legal help and representation 3 times. At the end all engagements were straight win for my family. Mr. Halperin has unique combination of being friendly, easy to communicate with and at the same time following all formal rules of the law practice. Halperin Law Center is the hub of the legal experts. They do carry years of progressive professional experience, hands-on dealing with many different legal situations of their clients. When a time in life comes when you need to be protected or justice needs to be restored then you need the power and strength on your side. In America knowing a great lawyer, doctor, plummer, auto mechanic will bring you the peace of mind and confidence. I know Mr. Halperin for many years and it makes me feel safe and ready for unexpected. Thank you, Roman

Agressive and competent - would definitely use Attorney Halperin again.
When I had a large financial dispute with a business partner, I was overwhelmed and felt lost in the legal system. Once the Halperin Law Center was on board, that all changed. Jonathan Halperin and his staff listened to all of my worries, investigated my situation, and began the process of litigation. I was confident that I was in good hands and was able to focus on my business and my life rather than on fighting in court. I was very pleased with the successful outcome that the Halperin Law Center obtained for me and would trust them again without hesitation in the future.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2001.

Informal Admonition issued in DC, 2001
updated on 07/24/2018

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Jonathan's comment: “16 years ago my office made an administrative mistake in not paying a single medical bill of approximately $5,000 where the provider had a lien. We accepted full responsibility for the mistake and paid the provider. The facts are available online. The client suffered no harm, and in fact had the benefit of my law firm's payment of his bill from our fees.”
