EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
John did a fantastic job with my daughter's divorce. He worked very closely with her and responded quickly to any questions she had. It is obvious that his dedication to his clients to obtain the best possible out come is a priority to him. I highly recommend him.

Jon Hedgepeth saved me from a horrible divorce
Jon Hedgepeth took my divorce, my children and me under his wing and helped save us from the mess that another firm had created. I thought that the law is the law, so it didn't matter which attorney I used. I was wrong. In trying to save money using another attorney, it almost cost me my home, cars, business and custody. Jon cleaned up the mess and then went to work expediting the divorce that had gone on for way too long. When my divorce went to trial, it was as if I was watching a master mind at work. He picked up on every single inconsistency from my ex-husband, including little things my ex said that were helpful to my case and little things he did that would favor my case. And, Jon pulled it all together at my trial showing the judge the truth. Jon was brilliant. The judge awarded me everything I asked for as well as a few things that I didn't ask for in the divorce. I'm so grateful to Jon and his team. I was scared and intimidated by my ex husband as well as the process but Jon took care of me and took the burden off of me so I could focus on running my business and being a mom. Not all attorneys are created equal and it does make a difference who represents you in a divorce. I have recommended him to other friends who have been thrilled with his representation as well.

Excellent Attorney
First and foremost, Jon is decent and honest. He has said things I wanted to hear , but also truths that I did not want to hear, but was completely straightforward and accurate in his approach. He has saved me thousands in fees for meaningless issues that I have seen other attorneys gladly chase and accept. I have had a contentious divorce from a woman with a venomous tongue and Jon has treated everyone with respect and dignity while consistently winning my points. Judges and other attorneys see this and respect Jon. I watched him absolutely destroy my opposition altogether while maintaining civility and showing complete respect to the court. I am happy to recommend him and would not consider using anyone else.

Professional, Efficient and Effective
Jon knows what he is doing without a doubt. He helped me with a long over due divorce involving custody issues. While the process for me was emotional and stressful, Jon's respectful demeanor helped me understand that, as much as I wanted one result, the law dictates the outcome. He talked me off the ledge more than once and as a result, I didn't waste money or energy pursuing futile results based on my feelings. He is a credit to his profession and I endorse him 100%.

Jon listens and first he gets to understand your particular situation. When is does he fights for your rights as if he is fighting for his own. I strongly recommend Jon as a family lawyer.

Jon is a terrific lawyer, with a tremendous knowledge set. He knows the system and how to work in it. He is a great guy who I felt cared about me as a client and as a person.
