Jonathan successfully represented me as petitioner in a complex divorce and custody matter involving out of state issues and a very adversarial pro se respondent. There were many complex aspects of the case and he answered all of my questions, was extremely patient, and handily tackled every obstacle that came our way. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I can't say enough good things about Mr Shimberg. He tells it like it is and lays out all your options without making any false promises. The minute i hired him to represent me, i knew i was in excellent hands. In my line if work, i know many attorneys and he has earned a spot at the top of my list of go-to guys. With his 40+ years as an attorney, it is obvious that he knows his stuff. He says it like it is, which is exactly what you want when considering an attorney. I can honestly say that if he feels that something isn't realistic, he will flat out tell you its not worth pursuing. I stand behind every single word of this review. I truly feel he is genuinely honest and fair.

I never had a need for a lawyer, but I found myself separated from my spouse and struggling financially with my daughter. I explained that my budget was extremely small, but I needed professional help. Jonathan heard that and was able to get me thru my divorce and child support proceedings with an uncoopertive now ex-spouse. More important I stayed on budget. You hear horror stories of people spending there life savings with other lawyers that do not listen to them. Jonathan proved to me that he possessed the knowledge of family law . He also has experience to work efficently thru the proceedings an I never felt that he did not understand what I needed and what I could afford.

Jon is one of the smartest lawyers I know. Period. Although I can only endorse him in one area of law, he is the attorney I go to whenever I have a question about any area of law or ethics. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the law and I know he reads newly issued case opinions as a past-time (like the rest of us read novels). He is just the best.
