THE BEST LAWYER IN MADISON
We hired Jonas for three criminal cases, he solved all of them very quickly, with minimal expenses and even removed the removed criminal records from background report. He is very professional in his demeanor and very put together. He explains everything very well, down to earth and pragmatic. We are very grateful to him for helping us in a difficult situation.

Fantastic Attorney
Jonas and David are fantastic lawyers! Amber is the best Paralegal on earth! I was charged with multiple felonies and it took some time but the cases were ultimately dismissed. Throughout the entire process I was treated very well by all of them. If you find yourself in a bind I highly recommend that you call them!

He is the most fantastic lawyer in all ways! His knowledge, experience, kindess, and charisma are endless! So pleased!
My lawyer made my OWI process through the initial visit with him until the end very easy. I felt humiliation about the whole situation, but his whole team made me feel that we all make mistakes. And that the law is dual sided and with excellent representation in court that the whole legal process is actually not as awful as one would perceive. A+ in all areas!

Professional
Jonas was a wonderful attorney. I felt that he always had my best interest at heart and explained things well and in a timely manner. It is a stressful time when an attorney is needed, and his staff and him made it a lot less stressful.
Response from Jonas Ben Bednarek July 6, 2016
We are glad we were able to help during a stressful time and we pride ourselves on making difficult situations as easy as possible for clients. Thank you, Bednarek Law Office

He is the best lawyer i ever had he's kind, understanding and caring
He goes above and beyond what you think he's going to do for you and more, just talking to him makes you feel safe about your problems. and he does what he say's he's going to do for you and your situation. Just a really honest lawyer makes you feel relaxed and no worries just hire him you won't be disappointed. Tod M. Whettam

Highly Recommend Attorney Bednarek
Attorney Bednarek is representing me on charges of felony possessing firearms. He is up front and honest. Always keeps me and my family in the loop on what is happening in my case. Very prompt in responding to calls or emails on questions myself or my family members have. Highly Recommend Jonas!!

Jonas Bednarek
Though in his Avvo picture he resembles Emilio Estevez, Mr. Bednarek is far more likable and substantial. Mr. Bednarek is, without question, a talented, thorough, tough-minded and tenacious attorney. He is an advocate for no one but you. He knows how the law and the jurisprudence system can work together to his clients benefit and makes it happen. Highest recommendation!

Helped me out when I was in a very bad situation
Jonas did an excellent job defending my rights and keeping my spirits high even through the long-drawn-out hell we call our Justice system. I would hire him again should I ever need his services.

Highly Recommended
Attorney Bednarek was terrific at handling my case. He and his associates put me at ease throughout the process and prepared me for eventualities that I hadn't considered, saving me a fair amount of time and money. I'm very glad that I secured his services and would definitely recommend him to anybody in need of legal representation that is both skilled and affordable.

My review of Attorney Bednarek
Jonas went above and beyond for my son. This included attending a meeting with the school my child attends. He was also available for follow up questions regarding my child's return to school. He was very knowledgeable of the law and how it applied to my child.

I have 99 problems and the State of Wisconsin is ain't 1
Attorney Bednarek was a stead fast proponent of my rights and innocence through out the long tenuous fight with the state of Wisconsin. Without him and his team I would be writing project innocence instead of this review. For this I am forever in his debt. I would highly recommend him for an attorney and advocate.

Pretty good.
I have hired Jonas to represent me 5+ plus times. He is a really good lawyer. Got me out of some bad times. But you ultimately need to be able to call the shots. The da offers you this I said no that won't work and jonas got me what I wanted and I settled. I'm satisfied without any criminal charges on my record to this day.

Friendly, personable, available, and easy to work with
Jonas and his co-conspirators provided attentive and helpful service. They explained everything clearly and kept me apprised of changes, and were around to help out with problems that cropped up after the case was closed. As far as whether or not I received the best reasonable outcome I have only Jonas's expertise to rely on in that respect, but his team was always up font with me about what the possibilities were, and while I didn't make things easy as a client they rolled with the punches and kept everything on track.
