Best of the best
My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Jon Sexton for a number of years personally. We have utilized the services of Sexton Law Firm over the years for assistance in our wills, etc. I lost my husband recently quite unexpectedly and again Jon Sexton’s firm was there to assist in probating my husband’s will. Jon and his staff could not have been more professional and helpful. They were there to answer any questions and assist me in any way they could. They each and every one went out of their way to help me get through a very difficult time. Their professional demeanor and genuine concern was so very evident during this process. I highly recommend this firm to anyone needing legal assistance.

Very Satisfied with my 1st Personal Injury Claim Results
I found Mr. Sexton and his office staff to be very professional and knowledgeable in handling my first personal injury claim as the result of a car accident. They were very accommodating and timely with responses. Everything was handled in a efficient manner and any delays were beyond their control. I would definitely recommend him if you prefer dealing with an experienced lawyer's office that will provide personal service and professionalism rather than a large and busier law firm.

Car Accident
We were very pleased with the professionalism that Jonathan and his staff provided to us. Jonathan helped us to get a fair settlement from all parties involved in our car accident. He was very informative and helped us through this process. I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone.

One of the Finest
Having worked for Mr. Sexton for almost 4 years, I can recommend him to anyone. He is a hands on attorney who fights hard to get what his clients deserve. At the same time, he is a christian who believes in helping others. I know there are many other attorneys out there, but there are none like Jon Sexton.

Highly Recommend Jonathan Sexton for Personal Injury!
I was referred to Mr. Sexton by my doctor after a bad traffic accident in which I was rear-ended on the interstate. Mr. Sexton made me aware of the likely outcome in advance, described our courses of action, asked for my decision, and then proceeded towards our goal, keeping me apprised of every interaction with the other party's insurance company. The eventual outcome was more than originally anticipated in our award. I can highly recommend Jon Sexton because of his communication with me throughout the process, his skill, and his Christian demeanor.

Car Accident
Jonathan was great at handling my car accident. He advised me on the correct actions and handled any issues with the "at fault" drivers insurance company. The process was pretty easy and allowed me to focus on my recovery.

Represented myself and my wife for Personal Injuries in Car Accident case
He represented my wife and I for personal injuries when we were hit from behind. Kept us informed. Very professional. Was able to get a generous settlement for us that exceeded our expectations. He really overdelivered. I also referred my sister to him when she was involved in an accident a year later and she was extremely satisfied.

unbeatable lawyer
Jonathan was the best lawyer I could have asked for; he was very dependable, caring, understandable, and down right justified to what I endured in my trucking accident. He knew my injuries were more than the company at fault was willing to pay and he fought for what he knew was the right amount to cover medical and living expenses that occurred over 3.5yrs of not being able to work. He kept me informed and was very trustworthy and very responsive to my calls and any questions I had at any given time. Jonathon is a licensed lawyer in GA, FL, & AL but he can consult with other lawyer in any state and more than willing to do so; just like he did in my case; seeing since I reside in Kansas.

"I endorse Attorney Sexton. From his answers and time on Avvo, it is clear he is dedicated to serving those in need and his clients. It's rare that lawyers spend so much valuable time helping the community, for free, and I applaud him for doing it to such a great level. Kudos"

"Excellent attorney. Well respected."

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"John is an excellent lawyer and an aggressive advocate for his clients. I met him years ago when we were opposing counsel on a substantial personal injury matter (I represented the defendant). I was very impressed with John's devotion to the case and his meticulous preparation. His advocacy added considerable value to the case. We settled for a sizeable sum because John had done such a thorough and professional job investigating and preparing the matter for trial. We had to pay about 1/3 more than we expected to pay (1/3 more than the estimated value of the case with less competent counsel) simply because of the excellent job John did. Since then, I have referred a number of cases to John and he has always handled them well, effectively, and professionally. He is a great lawyer and a great guy."

"I endorse this lawyer's work. Jon does exceptional work and has the highest ethical standards. I do not hesitate to refer cases to him whenever I have the opportunity."
Personal injury Attorney | Nov 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Jon is an excellent personal in jury attorney. I attended law school with him and have referred him many clients (including several family members) over the years for which he has done outstanding work. I had the occassion to work with him on a few matters, although Personal injury work is not a core practice area for myself. He is very detail oriented and will take his targeted defendant to the mat, unlike a lot of the big advertising attorneys that simply want to settle cases like an assembly line. Interestingly, he ends up handling a lot of other attorney's problem cases (...ones where the client wants a fair settlement.) The clients I have referred to him have been impressed not only with their settlements, but his professionalism and approachability."
