Very professional and always accessible. Mr. Jones and good staff really do a great job with accommodating his clients. He fought very hard to protect what was in the best interest of my children and at the end of the day as a father, that means the world to me!

My husband and I were terrified to have to file, but Mr. Jones made the entire process so comfortable and less scary. He took us through the process step by step, and has taken a huge weight off of our shoulders. Filing with Mr. Jones was the best decision we have ever made.

I should’ve listened
I should’ve listened to everything he told me from the very beginning, instead I tried to be nice, and expected my now ex to do the same. I was so wrong. Mr Jones is a fighter and calls it like he sees it but is friendly and personable too. I will definitely use him again if I’m in need of an attorney.

Criminal to Family to Bankruptcy, he will fight for your case
We have used Mr. Jones for over a decade. He aggressively fought for us in Criminal court and then again in Family court. In the midst of a messy and long divorce, I always knew exactly where my case was, what was being filed, and what the next step was. I never once walked in to court unprepared. He emailed me copies of everything and his staff took time to explain anything I didn't fully understand. He never let up and fought hard for my rights. I never had an issue getting in touch with him, nor did I ever feel that he drug anything out. His staff followed up with me numerous times after the divorce and helped me with child support issues years later. Anyone looking for an attorney who doesn't hold back or keep you in the dark, this is the guy.

**How My Previous Attorney's Negligence Compromised My Case**
In the pursuit of safeguarding my daughter's well-being and securing her medical and educational records, I embarked on a journey that would unravel shocking truths about the negligence of my prior attorney. The saga began when suspicions arose regarding the accuracy of information on her records – suspicions that were unjustly dismissed by my attorney at the time, leading to a series of events that would deeply impact my daughter's life. He was hired in November, 2021. As my ex-wife had relocated unknowingly upwards of 8 times. Admitted in court. The primary failure unfolded when my previous attorney failed to effectively subpoena records that could have unveiled critical details about my daughter's medical history and educational background. Despite my persistent concerns and insistence on investigating the matter, my attorney's lack of due diligence allowed vital information to remain concealed, further intensifying the complexities of my legal battle. To add to the gravity of this situation, the discovered records not only lacked accuracy but also included individuals who were not her actual family listed in official family positions. This shocking revelation not only highlighted a blatant disregard for the accuracy of my daughter's personal information but also raised alarming questions about the legitimacy of the records provided by the other party. One of the most disturbing findings was the inclusion of a man, whom I had long been suspicious of, on school records dating back to 2019. Despite my persistent concerns and the significance of this revelation, my prior attorney callously dismissed the possibilities of such occurrences, leaving me in the dark about the true extent of the deception. The culmination of these failures reached its peak when it was discovered that another man had been erroneously placed in my stead on official family records. This revelation prompted my prior attorney to abruptly exit the stage, using a barrage of excuses to deflect responsibility. The subsequent discovery that another individual had assumed my role on crucial records further underscored the egregious negligence that characterized my attorney's handling of the case. Had my previous attorney fulfilled his professional obligations competently, all of these damning revelations would have come to light much earlier, potentially altering the trajectory of my legal battle for custody. The consequences of this negligence have been far-reaching, leaving my daughter's well-being compromised and underscoring the critical importance of legal representation that prioritizes thoroughness and diligence. In the pursuit of justice for my daughter, it is imperative to shed light on these failures, holding accountable those who failed to protect the rights and well-being of a child caught in the midst of a tumultuous legal battle. The hope now lies in rectifying these past mistakes and ensuring that my daughter is granted the stable and nurturing environment she rightfully deserves. The gravity of my previous attorney's negligence extends beyond the mishandling of records, reaching alarming heights when crucial life events were overlooked, further compromising the integrity of my daughter's environment. Shockingly, incidents such as evictions and physical assaults were brushed aside by my prior attorney, revealing a stunning lack of thoroughness in their approach. Overlooking instances where my ex-wife was involved in biting their landlady and subsequent evictions raises serious questions about the attorney's commitment to comprehensively understanding the circumstances affecting my daughter's safety and well-being. The failure to address these critical details not only undermines the professionalism expected from legal representation but also casts a shadow on the overall efficacy of the legal proceedings aimed at securing my daughter's future.
