Jonathan represented me in a temporary restraining order hearing against my husband and we were successful in making it permanent for the maximum amount of time that I was looking for. He was so professional, intelligent, and really studied my case. He asked all the right questions to make my case most effective!! I felt like he fought for me and hard! He has allowed me to be able to move forward in my life and I can’t thank him enough!!

Above and Beyond
Jonathan exceeded my expectations. Going through my divorce was one of the most difficult and trying times in my life. Having a lawyer like Jonathan, who’s knowledge and support gave me profound security when I needed it the most means more to me than words can describe. Hiring Jonathan was absolutely the best decision that I had made in that time in my life.

Jonathan, was a huge help in two cases for me. I had a weird situation, where it was not a divorce, but we owned a house together and had a child together. Not only did Jonathan represent me in family court very well, he also represented me in a civil case - real estate, very well. Jonathan has showed true dedication and showing me that he cares about his clients. Jonathan was always on top of everything, responsive to my messages, calls, questions. If anyone needs a good solid lawyer. I recommend Jonathan! Hands down.

Very Professional and Dedicated
I obtained JG Law (Jon) back in early 2020 after My sons mother decided to keep my son from me and a week before this occurred the mother of my son made a comment about moving to Colorado after her dad told her to run with our son. That day I contacted Jon as I was really worried for my son safety and future as I would never bail on my responsibilities. Jon knew exactly what to do and he immediately met with me and filed the proper paperwork with the courts. Unfortunately because of Covid19 My case took a lot longer then needed i would say if Covid19 did not interfere my case could have been concluded way faster but because of all this Jon was very understanding when i vented to him about things. Jon never took anything i said personally. Jon is truly a man of his word and his ethics are on POINT. My case took 18 months as of 24Sept2021 My Custody Case was settled with me getting 50/50 placement and custody. Jon is very knowledgeable and professional and knows what he is doing I would Highly RECOMMEND AND ENCOURGE YOU TOO USE JG LAW. JON THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Very impressive
As if going through a divorce isn't hard enough, the idea of choosing and working with an attorney is scary too. So intimidating! Jonathan put me at ease right off the bat and continued to keep me as grounded as possible. As an overthinker, I had a lot of questions and concerns along the way (I probably drove him nuts, lol) but he ALWAYS got back to me in a timely fashion. He was knowledgeable, efficient, honest, fair & tough when needed. I am very happy with the results....not only in the details of the case, but in HOW things were handled. Very moral and respectable...which helps my ex and I to remain amicable! Though I don't wish divorce on anyone, I would definitely recommend Jonathan if you find yourself in that position. Thank you so much Jonathan!!

Thank you, Jonathan!
You will definitely want Jonathan in your corner for any legal needs you may have. From our very first meeting, he was realistic, relatable, and laid out expectations from the beginning. He ensured I knew of every possibility of my case, and he prepared me for the worst outcome while assuring me we’d fight for the very best outcome. I appreciated his sensibility and his no nonsense approach to my legal situation. His character is evident and I was always confident that he was a good steward of my retainer, sending out a detailed expense report of fees. He works for himself, charges a reasonable rate, and was always extremely responsive and very knowledgeable. Jonathan truly had the best interest of my son and I at heart and helped me achieve the best possible result to my case! He was so efficient and used both his and my time wisely. While I hope I never need his services again, if I do I will definitely be retaining Jonathan. I can’t recommend him enough!

Jonathan has been my attorney for more than 8 years. During that time Jonathan has handled tax issues for me on a business and personal level. He is always knowledgeable and well researched in whatever specific area of those issues needed to be addressed. His interaction with the IRS on these issues has been diplomatic, intelligent, tactful, honest, extremely direct (when needed), confident, and tenacious. He doesn't back away "just because it's the IRS". He understands my rights as a tax payer and will vehemently defend those rights. . He has pursued all avenues when needed, and we have always had favorable results for me, and my business. He has wisdom, patience, and legal maturity beyond his years. i also consider him a good friend. I would highly reccomend him for any legal representation that you might need.

Reassurance at it's best!
Jonathan was my attorney in a very contemptuous divorce and child custody case. He provided reassurance the whole way, making the whole process less stressful. He was knowledgeable, professional, and I have no problems recommending him.

The best advocate that I could have hoped for
A divorce is devastating. Family law lawyers may know statutes, procedures, and tactics, but many see your case as just another case - they'll give it their best, but in the end the next one is just around the corner. That approach is not Jonathan Goldman. Jonathan took the time to deeply understand me, my situation, my wants from the divorce and my hopes for life beyond it. He listened, thoughtfully counseled, and ultimately coached me through it as much as anyone else from my primary support system. He cares, and that is the difference that you want in a family law attorney. He truly and earnestly cares about his clients. I have nothing but humbled gratitude and admiration for Jonathan and for Goldman Law, and will forever be a satisfied reference for them both. He is incredibly intelligent, detailed at his work, prompt, and a highly effective litigator. Thank you, Jonathan, and God Bless.

Great Advice
Mr. Goldman has represented me for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and passion was evident from the very beginning. Thanks to his advice, I've been able to get joint custody for my kid.

Great Lawyer!!
I have consulted with Jonathan Goldman on two occasions, once regarding a family law concern, and once on a tax issue. Both times, after carefully listening to my situation, he advised me that I could manage the problem on my own, and pointed me in the right direction to do so. I am quite confident that if I had needed a lawyer to do the work, he would have done a great job. Jonathan is honest and very knowledgeable about the law- and family and tax law are so important! He will explain your options, and give you the information you need to make the best decision for yourself and your family.

Awesome Lawyer!!
I have worked with Jonathan. He is a awesome lawyer. When I met him, I was in a desperate situation because I needed to go to the Court the next day. I was willing to accept my case and went there with me. My opposing party was so controlling but he became my shields and gave me very Realistic and Reasonable legal advice. That helped me a lot to see my case as it is and to prepare how to defend myself. Also, I am an immigrant who is not a fluent English speaker but he tried to understand me a lot. I highly recommend him again.

Child Custody case
Jonathan Goldman worked with me on my case. He worked very diligently and expeditiously to get matters resolved. Unlike lawyers in the past he followed up appropriately and worked with my timeline. Jonathan also did not nickel and dime me for every little thing like my past lawyer. He was extremely fair with his pricing and what I paid was well worth his legal services. Above all he is extremely professional and a realist. He will not promise things that he knows will not happen and he will discuss the reasoning behind his thoughts. If you need an attorney that works hard for the customer I HIGHLY recommend him. I would also like to thank Shannon who is their paralegal. She is also very professional and was extremely helpful in everything. Thank you Goldman team for this win!

Jonathan is a great attorney!
Jonathan is very professional, quick, and on top of things. Jonathan learned my lengthy court case in just 1 week. He is very fast at responding to my calls, and emails. Jonathan keeps on top of things, and gives me great advice. He is also great in court. Jonthan is very fast at speaking, and that is because he knows exactly what he is doing. I would recommend Jonathan any day-all day. He is wonderful, and has helped me out in an emergency situation that I feel I could not do alone. I am excited to continue working with Jonathan, and glad to call him my lawyer. HE IS AWESOME.... IF YOU NEED A LAWYER, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GIVING HIM A CALL!
