About me

I am a compassionate and aggressive family law attorney who believes that all potential clients should have the knowledge to make educated decisions about hiring an attorney in their family law case.  That is why I offer free consultations so that even if you are not in need of full representation, I can still assist you in the process.

    I have sent at least 8 clients to Jonathan. The people I send to him tell me he is "the man" and did an outstanding job on their case. I've also worked with him on two cases, and found his logic skills to be very advanced. I found that he takes the quickest way from A to B, as opposed to more costly indirect ways. I strongly endorse Jonathan.

  • Richard Louis Mamele

    Mr. Simon has been opposing counsel on a couple of litigated cases and I found him to be prepared, knowledgeable, compassionate and honest. In those cases, he worked very hard for his clients and has aggressively advocated for a fair resolution of the issues. He has displayed the highest level of professionalism and preparedness. I respect the fact the he moves his cases along. As a board certified attorney for 39 years, I recommend and endorse Mr. Simon.
