Best criminal defense attorney
I hired Mr. Jones to defend my father in a criminal matter. Not only was he effective and efficient, he was very responsive and convinced the state to dismiss the case within a month from the charges being filed. Ecstatic with his results and would highly recommend.

criminal case
We hired Mr. Jones through a recommendation and I was satisfied with his assistance for my son. It was a residential entry case. Unfortunately the case dragged on for a full year outside of Mr. Jones' control. He submitted all requests in a timely manner and scheduled all hearings to resolve the case as soon as possible. It was my son's first offense. He is very professional and respectful in his explanations to his clients.

Things were definitely handled with my best interest in mind. The time table ran a little long, but it was for the right reason and I was satisfied with how the whole plea agreement got finalized.

My excellent lawyer!
I think David P. Jones is and excellent lawyer. He is a very caring person and he goes above and beyond as a lawyer. I've told many different people if they need a lawyer to go see David. Others that I have met in the Firm were so caring & kind to me though out the whole case. I just want everyone to know that David Jones is to me one heck of a lawyer. If you want someone who cares and get's the job done then you want David.
