He went above and beyond with helping with my families will. I appreciate everything that he did for me. His office staff was outstanding also. If you ever need a good, honest lawyer… I 10/10 recommend him!

Terrific Lawyer!!!!
This firm is the best firm I have every worked/done business with!!! Any time I had questions or concerns I was ALWAYS able to get Jonathon or Althea on the phone, which is not possible in most offices. Our case was extremely time sensitive at times and they were quick to meet and exceed deadlines. I found them through google reviews and I am so thankful to have found them!! I will always be thankful for such thorough work!! The lawyer is GREAT!! Althea, the assistant is GREAT!!! I look forward to using a TRUSTED law firm in the future for all of our needs!!! I give them 10 stars!!!

Speeding Ticket Help
I made the stupid mistake of getting two speeding tickets within a few months of each other in Greene County last fall. Jonathan was able to get the first ticket completely dropped for me. I messed up by getting the second ticket only two months later. Jonathan was able to reduce my fine by getting my speed reduced. This was also the first time I was ever required to go to court, which made me nervous, but Jonathan was able to help me feel more calm in the courtroom.

After my wife's illness we found ourselves with a mountain of medical bills. We contacted The Cave Law Firm where we met with Attorney Jonathan Cave and his assistant, Althea. Everyone treated us with the utmost respect and compassion through such a trying time. The bankruptcy process was made so easy for us. We would highly recommend The Cave Law Firm for any legal issues one may have.

Found Not Guilty on DUI Charge
A friend recommended I hire Jonathan Cave to represent me in a DUI Charge. I was pulled over for speeding, and questioned if I had been drinking that night. I responded that I had 7 beers the entire night. The field officers said I failed the sobriety test, and I declined to take a breathalyzer or blood test. I consulted with Jonathan Cave. He watched my sobriety test video and agreed to represent me. During my bench trial, Mr. Cave went through every second of my sobriety test video. He pointed out the police officer, never gave me clear instructions on one part that I "failed". Mr. Cave also pointed out that I was bare foot and there was a lot of noise and commotion from the busy interstate. Mr. Cave had me bring a witness to the trail that was with me the entire night. I had drank approximately 7 beer pong beers in a 4 hour time period. In the end, the judge sided with me and said I was Not Guilty of DUI. Mr. Cave is an excellent attorney and I would recommend him to anyone. He really fought hard for me during my trial, and I can't thank him enough for not having to put up with a DUI conviction the rest of my life.
