Thorough and exemplary professional!
I was having many issues with a tenant occupying an apartment. After reaching out to many resources, I was referred to Mr. Adler. I was very stressed with the situation the tenants had caused when I was able to get ahold of Mr. Adler. His experience and guidance on how to go about legal documents, tracking incidents, as well as suggested timelines were what granted me the confidence to proceed with mediation. The vast experience that Mr. Adler brought to this situation was positively impactful and helped appease both parties involved. The meetings were detailed, thorough, and on most occasions more than one viable solution was offered. If there were any doubts, I was always reminded that I could ask questions before making any decisions, this alone provided me the peace of mind to come to a resolution. It was because of Mr. Adler that I was able to go through mediation with confidence and achieved a better experience with the tenants. I highly recommend and am forever grateful for Mr. Adler's services, experience, professionalism and patience. Thank you.

He's a good human being, its rare you get to say that about an attorney.
Jon at one point was a fairly close personal friend after being an attorney for me. I have had to deal with a lot of attorneys, and most of them are ok at what they do. Some are fairly great. A lot of them are cold and moving like you are on an assembly line. This is not Jon. He actually cares and takes an interest in you as a person. If he doesn't know the answer he is honest with you and asks if he can get back to you on that. It humanizes the engagement. More over you can tell he takes pride in making it happen for other people and seems to go to great lengths to see other people successful, but does so in a very professional ethical way I genuinely miss our friendly banter. If you are considering working with him, I cant encourage it enough.

Amazing Experience!
Jon was highly recommended to me and I now I know why. I used him twice, once to form my company and the second time to draft some contracts. He really spent the time to understand exactly what I wanted and educate me. Jon genuinely cares and even sent me a couple of leads and introductions to help my business. Whenever I reach out, Jon is extremely responsive and patient. I changed part of the contract on him several times and he acted like it was no big deal. In addition, Jon gave me a lot of extra time and legal advice just because he's a really nice guy that just wants to help. I never felt like he was trying to run up my bill and he was incredibly fair in his pricing. If you want to hire a lawyer who is genuinely out for your best interest and is very thorough and patient, I'd highly recommend you use Jon.

Hire Jon Adler For Your Legal Needs
I hired Jon Adler for a business dispute and money owed to my company. He was courteous, thorough, compassionate and expeditious in helping to resolve the matter. There are many choices for legal work, but Jon is above the crowd on ethics and delivering for his clients. Other lawyers will make promises and never deliver for you, but Jon Adler will get the job done. Save yourself time, money and headaches, and hire Jon Adler as your lawyer.

Such a great advocate
Jon was my attorney when I purchased my home. He walked me through the whole process making sure everything was done in a timely manner. Jon even advocated for me when the bank made several mistakes almost causing me to lose my dream home. He held every party accountable (including me) for sticking to deadlines and because of all his help, I closed on my first home June 1, 2016. Great guy. Great attorney.

Representation and continued guidence
Jon has played a critical role in the launch of my film production company. He has mentored and supported me through this process, and continues to guide and further my industry knowledge and growth. Because of his trustworthiness, work ethics, expertise, and good nature, I will continue to refer him to all of my colleagues. Jon has a collaborative nature and cultivates each relationship, as his focus is not transaction based, but in long-term partnerships.

Great Experience with Jon
We are young business that was in need of someone to help us with our initial business documents. So my partner recommended that we use jon adler. From our initial conversation on the phone he was very helpful and insightful. He truly wanted to help us any way he could, giving free advice, what to do, recommendations, what to avoid. We decided to hire him for some of our business documents and it went terrific, he was patient and thoroughly explained everything to us. He is definitely good at his job and I would recommend him as a lawyer to anyone

Excellent Service and Work Ethic
Jon set up my LLC, he really went above and beyond with not only helping me with that but to recommend other good people to work with. He struck me as very confident, passionate, and ethical person in everything he does, and easy to get along with. He makes you feel you're the only person he works for. Extremely hard to find people like him.

Happy to find this attorney
Hesitant to try any lawyer without prior knowledge or experience, I was happy to be referred by a business contact. I found Jon to be thorough, straightforward, responsive, ethical, and friendly. He took the time to meet with me personally when this was not necessarily needed for the work I required. He followed through on details and communicated consistently throughout the process. I would definitely use him again, and recommend him to others.

Jon set up an LLC for us in a pinch
We needed to get an LLC set up lickety split - before the year was out. We called Jon on Dec. 29th and he got the job done by the 31st. It was quick, efficient and happened without incident. We will definitely use Jon for any lawyering we need - he will be the first we call. Did I mention his rates were so reasonable we couldn't believe it? This guy is fast, efficient and with affordable rates. Try him - you won't be sorry!

The Extra Mile
Honest, diligent and compassionate, Jon makes each client feel like he/she is his only one. He represented me in a small claim against a home improvement worker. Until we went to court, he continually updated and prepared me. After the case was settled, he continued to work on my behalf sending letters to the worker until all funds were collected. He did this without additional fees. Going the extra mile is part of his character, Hiring Jon was a positive, stress-free experience for me as it will be for you.
