Highly Recommend
As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions and a lot of things I didn't know that I didn't know. Jonathan answered everything and more... he was a fountain of information and great to work with. Plus when it came to negotiating the terms of house I eventutally did buy, I got everything I was looking for and more thanks to Jonathan. It made my closing as stress-less as possible. Working with Jonathan exceeded all my expectations and I couldn't recommend him enough.

Flawless Experience
Jonathan provided impeccable legal services throughout the purchase of our new home in Chicago. He was very prompt and extremely knowledgeable about the process. Everything proceeded quickly and without exception. He was particularly helpful guiding us through the closing. We recommend him highly.

Highly Recommend
Jonathan was recommended to me by a friend for my purchase of a new home and sale of my current home. Absolutely great experience, he was very responsive with any questions and gave detailed instructions on any documents or forms that he sent. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Excellent Real Estate Lawyer
Jonathan was extremely helpful through every stage of the contracting and closing process. He is always reachable, willing to go above and beyond standard closing items, and a complete expert in his field. Highly recommend.

Sale of Condo
I had used Jonathan to buy the condo a number of years ago. He made the process really easy for us. So it was a no brainer to have him help with the sale of the condo. As with the last time the process was completely handled by him. Anything we had to do he walked us through it. I ca not recommend him strongly enough for a real estate transaction.

Helpful every step of the way
Jonathan's help was invaluable during my first experience of this somewhat long and daunting process. I could always depend on him to provide answers and keep me posted of any changes or developments. Very highly recommended!

Great Service
Jonathan handled my real estate purcase 20 years ago when I bought my condo and this year when I decided to sell it. Such great service keeps me coming back. He handled everything with speed and accuracy. The transaction was so smooth I barely had a single question. I highly recommend his services for any real estate dealings in Chicagoland.

Excellent Service
Jonathan did a great job, there were a couple of issues that popped up at the walk thru that he was able to handle without additional credits to the buyer on the day of the close.

Extremely responsive and knowledgeable
Our real estate broker referred us to Jonathan to handle the sale of our home and the purchase of a new one. We are in the real estate business and have worked with a number of attorneys in the space. Jonathan is the most responsive attorney that we've ever worked with. He was knowledgeable and didn't overcomplicate anything. We'd highly recommend him.

Great service
Johnathan was a pleasure to work with. He responded quickly and clearly to all my questions (which were many). My closing was efficiently handled with no problems. As a retired lawyer without a domestic real estate background I was pleased with his service.

Professional, knowledgeable & responsive
Jonathan has helped me with buying / selling my home twice in the last 10 years. He is extremely responsive, often responding off hours and sensitive to the timing and dynamics in a challenging market to get deals across the finish line. He can be relied upon to do great work and helpful throughout.

We had a great experience with Jonathan who is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Just prior to the closing we had a few issues pop up that he was able to quickly address and resolve. We highly recommend Jonathan's legal services.

Attentive and Responsive
I've worked with Jonathan on 2 different closings and in both instances he was extremely professional and very responsive. Jonathan protected our interests and did a good job ensuring that the closing process was smooth. He was flexible and very attentive to our needs.

Take the complex and makes it simple
Jonathan was great during one of the more stressful experiences. He responded quickly to all questions. We understood everything he communicated, didn't complicate things. He was always clear of an issue was serious, slightly serious or not serious at all. It wasn't an easy sale, but he made it feel easy.

Swift, efficient, clear
Jonathan is super responsive plus very clear and direct with his communications. Makes what could be a complicated situation easy. When an issue popped up, he referred me to a colleague who advised on the situation based on his long and trusted relationship with Jonathan.
