Custody Trial
Jason Calvinder was my attorney for a custody trial between my ex wife and I. He was excellent and very professional. He made sure to do all of his research pertaining my case with all of the evidence that i provided him with. His cost to hire was a very reasonable price per hour. I hope that I don't need to go through this ever again but I would hire him again no question and give his name out for references to anyone who might need his services like my case. He pleaded my case with knowledge and real intensity.

Competent, Knowledgeable, and Caring.
Mr. Cavinder took time out of a family vacation to professionally and respectfully consult and help guide me to help an acquaintance through a difficult time. His experience and knowledge, in conjunction with his attentiveness is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs legal assistance. Whether it pertains to family law, or another area of law, his expertise and caring nature is rare, and certainly valued.

Efficient and Knowledgeable
I was out of prison on parole when I caught two misdemeanors. Jason did a great job with resolving the matter quickly and with the most minor of consequences (truly the bare minimum in this situation). I can't thank him enough for his work!

Jason Cavinder
I hired Jason Cavinder for my dv charge and he worked hard and did what I needed him to do. At the end of everything my record can be expunged and I will be back on track.

Outstanding results!!!
I hired Jason Cavinder regarding an unfair traffic violation and found him to be very kind, understanding and thorough. He tackled a situation that was rather difficult and I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. He maintained excellent communication with me and was always most professional. I was so impressed my wife and I are having him set up a family will.

Traffic violatin
In my case, Cavinder Law helped me immensely. I was stopped while pulling a trailer in a distant from home county. I was given a citation that required an appearance in court, which was a major inconvienience as I am a busy business owner. Cavinder law worked with the prosecuter to arrange closure to my case without an appearance, and took care of every aspect of it with no confusion or problems. Very professional and efficient. I highly recommend Cavinder law!

Jason know's the law
Jason helped me with a domestic dispute case. He was very knowledgeable with the law and listened to my concerns and my preferred outcome of the case. He keeps you up to date on what the status of your case is and also is very approachable and reasonable. His experience as a former prosecutor paired with his criminal defense history makes him a very credible attorney. I highly recommend.
