Best attorney around, look no further!
Mr. Kreider and his staff are amazing!!! His legal assistant was very helpful and kept me informed throughout my process. Mr. Kreider worked so hard on my case and fought to represent me in a professional manner. He’s incredibly thorough and diligent with what he does. As the judge told me during my case, “You have yourself one heck of a defense attorney!” If you’re looking for that, look no further. God bless.

Life Saver/Amazing Attorney
Jonathan helped me more than he’ll possibly ever know. I’m from Atlanta, and during a road trip to DC last year, I got a speeding ticket/reckless driving ticket in North Carolina! Jonathan stepped in days before my court date, while I was PREGNANT, by the way, and got me a VERY VERY VERY favorable outcome. Thanks so much. If you’re looking for representation - PLEASE contact Jonathan Kreider.

Great job on a traffic ticket!!!
I had a traffic ticket that required a court appearance. I thankfully had not received a traffic ticket in decades and had no idea what was involved in my adopted state. Before I started to receive all the attorney advertisements, I decided to call Jon. I knew Jon from his time on the bench (personally, not in front of him) and during his unsuccessful reelection bid. While we don't always agree politically, I found in Jon a caring, compassionate, and dedicated justice who looked out for the individuals in his courtrooms and someone who treated others with respect; he also had the respect of his fellow judges and attorneys who appeared before him and served alongside him. I wasn't sure if he would handle a traffic case but he did. I sent over my paperwork. I sent a few notes and spent some time on a call. When the time came to defend my ticket, Jon guided me and gave honest advice and feedback; I did not need to appear in court as he was able to represent me without my being present. His fees were very reasonable and less than others I had spoken with prior to reaching out to him. He also understood that I wanted to adjudicate this matter expeditiously and moved the hearing forward, getting a continuance granted by the courts. When the time came, he defended me well and cleared the matter in a fair and just way. I am thankful for his professional response and personal caring as well as his clear understanding of the courts - he helped me navigate my way and I am appreciative. I highly recommend Jon for any matters from family to traffic law. My hope is to only see him casually, and not professionally again. However, I do know who to call if I ever find myself in such a position again.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Kreider is a true professional whose background, and in-depth knowledge of the law, make him uniquely qualified to handle both family and criminal matters. He and his staff were very responsive to my questions and concerns. They demonstrated true empathy as I faced one of the most challenging periods of my life. They patiently walked me through the legal events and explained what I could expect each step of the way. Mr. Kreider secured me a positive outcome which not only profoundly helped me, but ensured stability for my family. I am truly grateful for his help. If you find yourself in an unfortunate domestic or criminal circumstance then he would be the first person that I would call.

Ms. Kelly
I highly recommend Jon for his professionalism and commitment to present his client's best case. His tenacity on behalf of my son in a domestic violence charge proved the defendant's total innocence.

Checkpoint DWI
I cannot say enought good things about Mr. Kreider. His knowledge of DWI case law is vast and his professionalism in court was unmatched. He was able to get my entire case dismissed before trial by showing that the officer who charged me did not follow proper arrest procedure. The judge called his motion to dismiss "brilliant". I highly recommend him for any DWI-related matter.

Review of Jonathan Kreider with Dummit Fradin Law Firm
I am an actual client. Mr Kreider presents himself in a very professional manner and has represented me very well in court. He was in court several times on my behalf and kept me up to date regarding my case. I would recommend his services to my friends. Mr Kreider is a "winner".

Jonathan Kreider is thorough, thoughtful, and pays intense attention to detail
I hired Mr. Kreider for a DUI case. He spent a great deal of time organizing, preparing and analyzing the case. When we went to trial, he worked hard to investigate all the details of the roads, and specifics to the traffic stop. After hours of questioning, he was able to get the entire case dismissed by introducing a very minor oversight by everyone in court that day - failure to properly introduce me and put my name into record. Amazing…

Personal injury case
Jon has served as my attorney on a personal injury case. He understands the insurance companies and their tactics.

Professional and Proficient
I contacted Mr. Kreider with a landlord/tenant matter a few months back and not only was he extremely knowledgable and capable of producing the results I needed, he did so in a timely and professional manner. I will continue to employ Jon with any future legal issues I encounter, and highly recommend his services!

Speeding Ticket
Jon Kreider represented me for a speeding ticket. He was excellent in every way. My outcome was great. His responses to my questions were timely and professional. He went to court for me and let me know the outcome within 24 hours. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer they can count on!

Traffic Ticket Representation
I received a speeding ticket of 21 mph over the limit as well as an improper equipment ticket for my speedometer not working. I came to Mr. Kreider to represent me for both tickets, to which he sufficiently reduced both charges. I received no points on my record and the fee was minimal for the circumstances.

Prompt and knowledgeable legal service
I am a landlord with multiple tenants. Mr. Kreider's legal advice continues to help with drafting leases, addressing tenant/property issues, and communicating with local municipalities. He proves to be very trustworthy and is prompt in responding to all of my inquiries.

Great Understand Lawyer
I was in a serious civil litigation and Jon was appointed to me through my Insurance company when he was at his old firm. I was very nervous about the situation but Jon always knew what was going on and could talk to me in a very positive realistic manner! He got me through a tough thing in my life and I greatly appreciated his work! Since then he is at his own firm now ROBBINSKREIDER I recommend him to my clients nearly once a week! If I ever need legal advice Jon is were I turn!!
