One Great Lawyer!
Jon Midtgard acted like I was part of his family and he took my matters to heart and really went the extra mile for me. Jon is very knowledgeable, extremely hard working, trustworthy, loyal, great listener, and very compassionate. Jon was not only professional but also very empathetic and a great counselor. He was always reassuring me that everything was going well and I trusted him to take care of everything. I needed an attorney that was understanding but also assertive in getting the job done. After hiring Jon I could rest and feel at ease during the process of my divorce / child custody case. I would highly recommend Jon to anybody who needs a strong, intelligent, hard working, trust worthy attorney that will go the extra mile for men’s rights.

Professional, courteous and informative throughout the divorce process
I wanted to thank Jon for his services as my attorney. He was always professional, courteous, and informative throughout the entire divorce process. He was always happy to answer any questions I had, and if I was ever unable to get a hold of him immediately he was always very good at getting back to me promptly. Finally, I felt that Jon was sensitive to my unease over the whole process (since I never did want this divorce), and he was successful in handling my concerns and questions in a very professional manner.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Oct 20
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I've been practicing criminal defense for nearly 15 years and I've had the opportunity to refer several of my male clients to divorce attorneys who were wrongfully accused by their wives of various things so that they can get a tactical advantage in a divorce case. In those case where I’ve suggested Attorney Jon Midtgard (a partner with ADAM), my client’s have found a true advocate who really cares about them and their family. My client’s have told me that Jon is not “just another divorce attorney” and that “he is a real fighter.” I feel comfortable putting my reputation behind Jon Midtgard’s because I know he is honest, intelligent, effective and aggressive. He has a real passion and talent for helping men through what is undoubtedly the most difficult time in their lives. Anyone who is fortunate enough to hire Jon Midtgard will find that he will do whatever is necessary to get them the best possible result for them and, if applicable, their children."
