Jonathan is superb at what he does!
Jonathan was referred to me by a friend. He was very attentive, answered all my questions in a promptly manner, and was able to examine at the evidence that I provided and built a great case for me. Most importantly, he acted in the best of my interest and provided great counsel in my case. I highly recommend him and will definitely come back to him again in the future if I have any legal questions.

Outstanding Attorney!!
Jonathan Vogel is an outstanding attorney who communicates well and cares about his clients. His strategy is quite versatile: he can take an aggressive or low-key approach depending on what the situation requires. He is incredibly well-versed in the law, and he will take time to thoroughly research and understand your case so he can be a fierce advocate for you. He listens to his clients and puts their priorities first. My case was very complicated. It involved many individuals and classes at a large university, but he was quick to sort out the important details. Less than three weeks after taking my case, everything was resolved in my favor, and he didn’t even use the entire retainer! I highly recommend Jonathan Vogel for any educational issue. He will represent you well. Susan Nelson

College Student
Jonathan worked with me while dealing with a code of conduct issue at my college. He was extremely supportive, hard-working, and thoughtful during the time we worked together to navigate the judicial process at my school. Thanks to Jonathan's efforts, the issue was resolved in my favor. I highly recommend Jonathan to any student who needs support protecting his or her rights-- I could not have hired a better attorney.

Outstanding attorney
Jonathan did an outstanding job for me and my family in connection with an education-related issue involving my oldest son. Jonathan was responsive, thorough, and thoughtful in his approach to some very sensitive issues. As an attorney myself, I hold counsel to a very high standard, and Jonathan exceeded my expectations in every way. I would not hesitate to hire Jonathan again, and I will actively look for opportunities to refer matters to him in the future.
