Jonathan Jonasz and his team (Cristiana Esteves) represented me in a case regarding the modification of a timeshare and care agreement of a minor child. After struggling to defend myself from countless petitions for modification, which left me emotionally taxed and physically drained, a friend led me to Jonathan. Looking back to last year, I can say without a doubt that the day I met Jonathan was the first day of my liberation from a long-lived nightmare of excessive and unnecessary litigation, outrageous legal fees, missed workdays and the fear from being repeatedly served by my “seek and destroy” minded ex-spouse.
From day one, Jonathan was straight-up with me; pointing out advantages/disadvantages of different legal strategies and the relationship and monetary cost of each. I was impressed with his knowledge of family law and his ability to recite case law specific to my situation on command. The most impressive quality that Jonathan has is his uncanny ability to display an unrivalled Pitbull-like mindset when he needs to be in “attack” mode for his client; nothing dirty, just good old-fashioned legal research put forth as technical acumen with a “kick.” After reading his initial email messages and hearing his telephonic communication to opposing counsel, I was sure that I was on the right side of the bar fight.
As tough as Jonathan will fight for you, he’ll also work just as hard keep you from joining the fight. Rather than allowing me to self-implode many times during the case or have him employ retaliatory tactics towards my ex-spouse and her lawyer, Jonathan showed empathy for me and our minor child, he listened to and allowed me to vent, but kept me focused on doing what was best for our minor child. I recall one defining moment when I knew for certain that I had the right lawyer; Jonathan sat me down after he noticed that opposing counsel was getting under my skin…He said ”I have one question for you. Is your child important to you?” My answer was a resounding, “Yes!” To which he replied, “Well let’s do this the right way and leave the dirty stuff to them; the law is what we’ll fight with.”
Jonathan successfully thwarted attempts by opposing counsel to serve me at my workplace, protected me from multiple baseless discovery requests, shielded me from my own natural desire to react while under attack, and was available via email, phone, in person no matter when I needed him.
If my case were in the news, they’d be reporting on how Jonathan took my ex-spouse’s well-heeled lawyer behind the woodshed on my behalf and came back with my case being settled out of court in my favor!
I knew a few months in that I had hired a solid lawyer last year, but when the process was over 7-months later, I was certain that I had gained a friend. I give an enthusiastic recommendation for Jonathan Jonasz and his team for anyone with family law needs.

Jonathan Jonasz represented me in an alimony modification case where the original divorce judgment was for permanent alimony. From the beginning, Mr. Jonasz was upfront and realistic in his assessment of the possible outcomes of my case depending on whether it could be resolved out of court or went to trial. He made me feel like an active participant in the case by listening to my thoughts and analysis of the discovery, by sharing appeals court case history and by keeping me informed at each step in the process. He set a strategy for presenting the case and kept the focus on that strategy in spite of distractions by the opposing counsel that required filing counter motions and attending hearings to argue points of law regarding depositions, mediation and timeliness in the delivery of discovery. Mr. Jonasz’ partner, Cris Esteves, worked closely with me to organize and analyze the discovery and likewise demonstrated her knowledge of the law regarding alimony modification and her skill in reviewing financial data. Because of the excellent representation by Mr. Jonasz including his focus on the merits of the case, his skills in deposition and mediation, the case was settled out of court no doubt saving me additional fees, numerous hours of my own time devoted to the case and additional months of high alimony payments. I highly recommend him in the area of family law.

Jonathan and his staff were very attentive from day one. The divorce process is a difficult one, especially in highly contested cases, and Jonathan and his staff were there all the way for myself and those in my circle of influence.
Jonathan is also great at articulating the needed message in a very effective way.

I hired Mr. Jonasz to represent me for my divorce case and I have been extremely satisfied with his professionalism. He took his time to understand my difficult case (divorce/prenuptial agreement/child custody/relocation) and review the information carefully. He and his professional and competent assistant Cristiana discussed with me the case, answered all my questions and always made me feel I was in good hands. It is a lot of work, a lot of time, and a lot of patience needed to reach a good agreement for my daughter and myself. He took care of the case but first of all he took care of the client and my fears. A plus for his secretary Patricia always so nice with me.
I'd recommend his services to anyone in a similar situation.

No one calls an attorney, because things are going well.
When I first contacted Jonathan Jonasz, I was going through one of the most difficult times in my life. From day one, he was attentive, detailed, and honest. During my case I felt I was a top priority and a (much needed) sense of security that I was in good hands. With every phone call, office visit and court appearance, Jonathan clearly demonstrate his expertise, knowledge, and professional demeanor. When it was all over, I walked away feeling confident I had had the best representation I could have gotten and glad with my initial decision to retain Jonathan Jonasz.

Jon helped me in both my divorce and timesharing hearings. He is a great speaker and commands a great presence in the courtroom. Jon was available to advise and counsel me at any time, any day, including while on his vacation. Jon understand the law tremendously well and is great at legal strategy. He and his associate perfectly orchestrated both my cases, and the outcomes were exactly as i hoped for. My cases were extremely tough and Jonathan handled both of them perfectly. I would and do recommend them to all my associates.

Mr. Jonasz and his assistant, Cris Roundell, provided legal services for a divorce proceeding which took many, many months and many, many hours. Mr. Jonasz and Ms. Roundell were knowledgeable, patient, available during off hours when things came up that needed to be discussed and always did what they said they were going to do in spite of considerable duress. Their consistent and professional efforts on behalf of their client eventually were successful and their client received everything he wanted out of the divorce settlement. I recommend and endorse Jonathan and Cris.
