Caring and fast
As soon as I called I got someone on the phone to speak with and within 10 min the attorney was calling me to introduce himself and assure me that everything would be taken care of.. I was very pleased that I didn’t get an answering service

Accident
My attorney filed all my paperwork, medical bills, reports, etc for me. He spent multiple hours on the phone, talking to those he needed too in order to get and record all the information needed for my claim. He also did all he could to push things along quickly when things seemed to be dragging!!

Goes the extra mile
Jon has represented us twice. He is reliable, integrity-driven and detail-oriented. Both times he followed through and went above and beyond to guide us through what could have been a stressful and scary process.

Great Attorney
Jon and his team did a great job. We needed a wrongful death lawyer and we interviewed a couple of attorneys and after going through our notes, we went with Jon. Jon was welcoming from the beginning and walked us through the process. Jon always keep us updated on what's going on and even when we didn't have questions, he would called us to let us know where the case is at. When the case was finally settled, a big relief came to my family. Looking back now, Jon was the right choice and I will highly recommend him if you are looking for a lawyer!

Correspondance
My interaction with Mr Goth was suburb. I was recommended to him for plaintiff lawyer subject matter expertise. He was respectful, diligent and cordial when working with me. Moreover, he was able to recommend someone to me specialized to my needs. This showed to me that he is committed to finding help no matter what for a client. I saw a great display of humility.

Groth law firm
I came to the Groth law firm after firing my first attorney.I learned more from talking to Jon in thirty minutes than I learned from my previous attorney in almost three years. Jon is professional,ethical and extremely knowledgeable. I am happy with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Jon and the Groth law firm.

100% satisfied
I was in a car accident in December 2014 and was referred to Attorney Groth by a friend. I immediately felt at ease in our consult, which is also when I retained him. I am very happy I did. Jon is very compassionate and understanding. I was very frustrated with my accident, but Jon always knew the right things to say. I always felt better after speaking with him. He explained that this was a long process, he was not joking. Jon kept me informed and up to date as the case progressed. He will got to bat for his clients. He was very upfront with me stating my case would be difficult. The outcome was unbelievable. His paralegal Cindy was always available if Jon was not. I would not hesitate to retain Attorney Groth should the need ever arise.

Excellent attorney
Mr.Groth is very knowledgeable attorney. And he worked very hard on my case. That i thought wasn't gonna go forward. He explained things to me that i didn't know and always keep me informed about my case. He let me make my own decisions about my case. He would let me know my options. I have voice and he made sure it was heard.

Free Consultation pays off
Jon came highly recommended to me. His firm offered a free consultation regarding an insurance situation, at the beginning, but he also responded to further questions I had (which he did not need to do), which in turn led saving me a lot of money. Thanks Jon. I am thrilled with the outcome!!!
