Great Family Lawyer
I originally got Jon as a public defender and was amazed at how well he represented me. later on i needed a family lawyer again and Jon was the first lawyer in mind to call. Jon has been representing me for 2 years now and i cannot say anything bad of him.

The Best!
We hired Jonathan a few years ago in a custody battle that was going nowhere with another attorney. From day one he was on top of things. He was able to wrap things up quickly and always keeping me informed. Jonathan cares and takes the time to help you. The staff was very helpful as well. I was very grateful for everything they did. Oh and if it matters he won the case too.

Satisfied Client
Jonathan has successfully represented our family through a very long and complex custody battle. His compassion for children and his wealth of case law knowledge has proven time and time again that we chose the correct council. We would highly recommend Jonathan!

Excellent attorney
Jon was awesome! He was very helpful and down to earth yet, responded to my calls, emails promptly. Most lawyers just want your money or to get the case resolved ASAP with little or no concern for your well being. Not Jon! He helped get more than I was seeking in mediation and kept us out of court. His staff is also very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend his services to anyone going through a divorce or legal separation.

Integrity and focus on facts
I hired Jon to help with an issue regarding the abuse of a family member by a former significant other. What started as a simple request for a protective order turned into a 2 year battle for the protection of my family member. In the beginning I had no expectations for the need of legal services until the respondent to the protective order hired a "powerful" attorney and buried me in subpoenas. Jon took the case. He kept us focused on the facts of the case rather than the emotionally charged minutia. He remained organized, prepared, and sensitive to the nature of the topic. Most importantly he seemed to possess a deep sense of integrity in issues of right versus wrong. After the respondent drug the case out for 2 years and went through 2 sets of attorneys, Jon won our case. Jon also assisted with us being awarded a significant amount of our attorney's fees to be paid by the respondent. I will not hesitate to hire Jon in the future if the need arises.

Hands on and very informative
I had a daughter in Indiana and I was living out of state. The mother kept hiding my daughter from me and would not let her communicate with me. After traveling to Indiana for several very intense court dates, I was awarded 100% custody of my daughter and we moved her into our home with her 3 step sisters. Throughout the court process, Jonathan kept me informed of everything, and during a very comical court hearing stayed very professional.

Highly Recommend!
Jonathan did a great job representing me for a divorce. He was very knowledgeable on custody, child support, and parenting time guidelines, and was always prepared whether it was for mediation or court. I highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney. I know he also helped one of my family members with a will and an estate and they were very happy with his services on those as well.

Divorce and Custody
I am extremely pleased with the legal services Jonathon Young rendered throughout the entire process of a very difficult divorce and child custody case. Mr. Young handled personal issues with sensitivity and compassion, yet assertively represented my best interests during all phases of the case. He demonstrated the utmost professionalism in the courtroom and his knowledge of the law gave me the confidence to make difficult decisions. I would highly recommend Jonathon Young to my closest friends or family members in need of an attorney.

Divorce/Custody Case
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know of my experience with Jonathan Young. I wanted to take the time to write to let you know that I am very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination of Mr. Young. Throughout my case, he was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the status and details/developments of my case. Upon the conclusion of my case, I felt that it was extremely fair and that Mr. Young did everything in his power to ensure this process had truly been as smooth and comfortable as possible. I could not have asked for a better attorney!

Divorce\custody case
We hired Jonathan for a divorce/custody case in which we thought would be simple and it turned out to be anything but that. Jonathan navigated us through a court system we didn't understand. He was always available to answer our questions/emails. He was knowledgable and extremely thorough and we felt confident when entering the courtroom. He was ethical, available, understanding, knowledgable, and always professional. I would highly recommend Jonathan to family and friends and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

Civil Case Against Kooky Neighbor
Having needed legal services in the past, we wanted someone that was tenacious, ethical, fair and resourceful. Jon is heads above anyone in our area. This was the first time we did not have to "BABYSIT" our attorney nor go to court feeling vulnerable by a disinterested professional that "we were paying" to represent us. He was thorough, communicative and totally in charge of the case. We were 100% pleased with Jon and will not hesitate to hire him again and recommend him to friends and family. The fees charged were more than fair and we NEVER felt we were being nickeled and dimed! We are impressed, he gives attorneys a good name.

Great Experience
Jonathan Young was a very personable attorney. He is very easy to contact, always returning my calls timely. As well, he was very knowledgeable with the Indiana laws surrounding Child Support and Visitation. I would recommend him to my friends and family well, I would certainly use him again for my own services.

I choose Mr. Young based on his claim of expertise in family law. Felt we had a very strong case but Mr. Young got smoked by the other attorney. Literally cost me 10’s of thousands of dollars. I formally terminated Mr. Young’s services or I would have been more underwater. Switched attorneys and new attorney had claim settled in the matter of weeks.

Will cost you a ton of money for nothing
with quitting. I bet I paid him over $12,000 for nothing. I drove away with my truck and that was it. He couldn't even win the contempt case we filed when she wouldn't let me have me have my court ordered stuff. dont waste your money , I could out debate him...

Not pleased
Hired Mr Young for a divorce case and I was very displeased with his performance. I only received part of an invoice with a bill and no explanation where the remainder of the retainer fee went. Will not use him again
Response from Jonathan Young December 18, 2017
I provide detailed invoices of all services rendered on a monthly basis. My office manager is available to answer any and all billing questions and provide accountings of all retainers that this office handles. I do not know who this person is and neither myself nor my office manager have received any requests for an accounting of a retainer on a divorce case.

Worst attorney
I used him for a custody trail. Was not prepared for the trail and I felt he did a horrible job of representing me in my case. You can tell that he hasn't had many years behind his belt that's for sure
