Best lawyer in Alabama
I went through a very bad divorce after 16 years of marriage. I was a law enforcement officer for 20 years. Throughout my career, I saw many things, mostly bad. In January 2010, my then wife and I went through the hardest thing a parent could go through. Our son was diagnosed with leukemia. If anyone is familiar with law enforcement, military vets, or just anything in life, where they are faced with some very difficult times, you are more than likely going to experience PTSD or other depression. My ex and I never had a great relationship and it only got worse. I was in bad shape, taking pills to hide my pain (which did right the opposite). After I realized that my marriage was over and I was going to lose my kids, whom I had always been close too, I made the irrational decision to commit suicide. I shot myself in the chest and miraculously, I survived. Mr Lusk took my divorce and custody case. I knew right away that I made the right decision by choosing Mr Lusk as my attorney. He is honest, very knowledgeable and a man of great character. Now, after telling you everything that happened, one would think that I had a snowballs chance in hell of even being able to see my kids again. Well, I am here, just 2 years after attempting suicide and I have full physical joint custody of my kids. Mr Lusk never quit fighting for me and never once thought it was an impossible case for me to come out on the winning side. I’ve had the privilege of knowing many lawyers during my career and I can say this without hesitation. Jonathan Lusk is one of, if not the best attorney in all of Alabama!!!

Even though I have not received the final ruling from the judge I have to commend Jonathan on his excellent work. Jonathan is a very capable, knowledgeable, organized, and ethical person. I had to fire my previous attorney and hired Jonathan at the last minute. He was quick to pick up the case and put together a very good presentation within the short amount of time available to him. He has an attention to detail, the ability to discern what is relevant, and he was quick thinking during the trial. This coupled with his strong presentation skills made for a strong counter to the Plaintiffs case. He is a consummate professional in his field. In the future, if I have any legal matters I will immediately seek Jonathan’s counsel. I highly recommend him.

Highly recommended firm
Jonathan Lusk and his team helped me through the toughest time of my life. I would highly recommend them for anyone going through divorce proceedings . Jonathan has an uncanny ability to keep his clients calm and self assured that he is taking excellent care of them in a very uncertain time. I very much appreciated his experience and ability to know the correct timing to make important decisions in negotiations. Jonathan’s staff also showed exceptional professionalism, and were extremely quick to respond to questions and concerns. Thank you all for helping me through this time period!

WOW!
I conferred with Mr. Lusk in on behalf of my daughter. She had a custody trial in a few days, she had her own attorney and she had rec’d a settlement offer (to which she made a counter offer). I was hoping to have the offers reviewed and his opinion on the likely outcome. As a grandfather, I needed information to prepare my family for pending “changes” to our household and options if we did not like the initial ruling. Mr. Lusk reviewed the offers, told me which parts were the most important (and why) and he answered ALL of my questions. Based on his experience with the attorneys, judge and how the system really works he offered a candid assessment of the likely outcome if the matter went to trial. I received straight answers with no ambiguity. Mr. Lusk was extremely generous in sharing his knowledge. I left his office feeling empowered.

This is your guy
Though my situation was probably not near as severe as some of the others, I did need really good representation to protects my assets and my reputation. Being a man in Alabama I was concerned how fairly i would be treated so I opted for the best. John reviewed my case and created a strategic gameplan. Then, we executed and won our case. Its hard for a man to realize he was the victim and this was the case for me. Hoping I do not ever have to utilize John's services again. But, i will highly recommend him, he will go to bat for you and treat you fairly. His entire staff are not only professional but emphatic towards the situation. This is your guy! and Thank you so much!

Highly Recommend
Mr. Lusk and I worked on a multi-million dollar deal together, and his legal expertise in the process was invaluable. Fortunately, I personally have never needed his services for domestic relations matters, but for anyone in need of legal representation in such cases, he is at the pinnacle of his field. I highly recommend him.

Jonathan Lusk is the OTHER SIDE'S worst nightmare.
I highly recommend hiring Lusk & Lusk as a strategic investment to secure the future of your family. This firm is not a "bargain basement" (i.e. pay a fee, get some papers drawn up). Jonathan Lusk provides powerful, comprehensive legal representation to protect you and your children's quality of life when it is threatened by a high-conflict relationship. This is a critical life investment - comparable in importance to investing in retirement, kids' college, and home. You will reap the rewards of having a great lawyer like Jonathan Lusk LONG after you have invested the funds. My wife and I came to Mr. Lusk in January 2022 with two open, complex, high-conflict child custody cases. By May 2022, both were settled to our advantage and closed. We chose Lusk & Lusk because we witnessed Jonathan Lusk representing other clients, on 2 different occasions, in public district hearings while we were present for our own cases. We observed that Jonathan and his clients were confident, poised and professional. The opposing attorneys we personally knew to be reputable, effective, and well-tenured. When these same attorneys had to litigate against Jonathan, however... we observed that they were tense, distraught, unprepared and unorganized. Jonathan made these 20+-year professional, "bulldog" lawyers fumble for words like nervous, 1st year law school grads! We came to learn that Jonathan is well-known and respected (feared?) in the legal community for these litigation skills. His reputation, alone, serves as a valuable asset to his clients. Once he began representing us, we found that the opposing attorneys were so interested in avoiding the experience of trying a case against Jonathan Lusk that they quickly opted to settle the cases - even requiring major concessions from their clients - to avoid the experience of trying cases against Jonathan Lusk. The Lusk & Lusk staff was professional & courteous at all times - the team ran like a well-oiled machine and amplified Jonathan's effectiveness. Jonathan was pragmatic, established clear goals, and found the most intelligent approach to secure those goals. Jonathan was extremely respectful of our time and resources, and diligently worked to secure the best possible return for the money we invested. He even went the extra mile to look for strategic opportunities to reduce the amount we needed to invest. He represented us so effectively against the other that we almost felt pity for them... almost. Cheaper, less experienced, less specialized lawyers can save you money. However, when core elements of your life with infinite value - your future, family, kids' well-being - are under threat... invest in Lusk & Lusk. You will thank yourself for years to come.
