My ex-husband was making, what should have been a simple straightforward process, extremely difficult and was trying to take everything from me, but John was so supportive and truly advocated in my best interest and kept my abreast of all proceedings and information. He really took a personal interest in my case and in me as an individual, not just a client. it was very reassuring to have a genuinely knowledgeable and professional lawyer on my side. He made a very stressful and emotional situation easier to cope with. I am very pleased with his services and would recommend John to anyone needing legal advice or services.

I hired Jonathan after I had a falling out with my original attorney. Until I hired him I felt like I was battling my wife, her lawyer, and my lawyer. I felt it was 3 on 1. I finally felt I had someone fighting for me once I hired Jonathan. What pleased me the most with him is that he was extremely accessible. I would send him a text on Saturday and get an immediate response. My divorce was simple and he kept it that way. He helped get it over quickly with the least amount of headaches and damage.

He took plenty of time time make sure that my mind was at ease and understood the upcoming process once baby is born. He was judgement-free, patient and reassuring. Although this was only a consultation, I plan on hiring him once we reach that point and trust that I am in good hands.

Incredibly patient don't know how he put up with me at times! Experienced a few lawyers during the long, costly and excruciating slow process, but what made him stand out was his determination to get to the finish line! A true friend who just happens to be a gifted lawyer. Thanks Jonathan for protecting me from myself! Glad you came into my life!

Jonathan helped me through a rocky custody, child support, parenting agreement process. He couldn't have been more professional and helpful. He was always available for communication with me or my son's mother wether by phone, text, or email. Jonathan was comforting and calm throughout the entire process. He was very fair and accommodating with payment for his services.

I had a dissolution case that I had started in Seattle that ended up getting dismissed, I contacted Jonathan through a recommendation from a friend. From our initial consultation Jonathan walked me through the steps of the legal process for an uncontested dissolution. Jonathan and Madelyn explained everything to me in plain English and walked me through the entire legal process. If I ever need to refer someone to a good family law practice, Jonathan's would be it.

Mr. Schatz was recommended to me by a friend who knew I was frustrated with my attorney and the divorce process. For 20 months I had pleaded for a meeting with my wife and her attorney.
Both attorneys road-blocked that request and collected handsome sums. 20 hours after hiring Mr. Schatz, the meeting was scheduled and a couple months later the settlement agreement was in place. Mr. Schatz listened, identified with me the issues and put the plan in place to get divorced sooner rather than later. We set a court date and took control of the process that would still be going on today had I not hired Jonathan. The divorce process is a joke and everyone knows it. What is not funny is spending thousands of dollars on attorneys who have only their best interest in mind. From the beginning, Mr. Schatz and I agreed that the only course of action was resolution ASAP. Together we got there in spite of the best efforts from the opposition to drag the case on.
Thanks to Jonathan for hard work and early morning consults. They were not free but they were very early in the morning and on a schedule that worked for me. The days of attorney arrogance and zero customer service are gone if Mr. Schatz is on the case.

Very prompt and reliable. Worked hard to win what I needed financially out of my divorce. Wish he had been tougher on my ex husband's lawyers at times but in the end I was happy with our results.

My child support case was complicated and required a substantial amount of legwork, especially since I was seeking counsel for issues in two different states and four counties. Making matters more difficult, I have also been struggling financially for twenty years, and have had no success in the past attempting to remedy issues pro se.
I have to admit that attorneys I had utilized in the past had me rather skeptical of lawyers' integrity in general, and I spent a lot of time researching for a person who I could fully trust and who would take my case because he or she practiced law out of a genuine devotion to pursue justice.
Jonathan is exactly that attorney. His attention to detail and frank nature gave me total confidence in his abilities when I talked to him during our initial consultation. Then when my litigation commenced, his on-point communication and diligence continued with excellence.
After their case is closed, I think it is safe to say that persons giving reviews of their attorneys would be obviously biased by the subsequent outcome, so I want readers to understand that even if I had lost my case, I know for a fact that Jonathan performed above and beyond his job requirements and his staff is equally commendable. My legal nightmare became a worry-free and efficient process from beginning to end, and this law office deserves to be recognized for it.
Jonathan Schatz is absolutely a top-notch attorney...and in my opinion most importantly, a true gentleman of the practice.

Mr. Schatz came very highly recommended; from the first moment we spoke on the phone, his professional demeanor and pleasant personality made me feel that I could invest my faith in him. I'm glad I trusted my instinct, as my expectations were met from the outset. Although my case (dissolution of civil union) was considered a relatively uncomplicated matter, there were variables that were considered potential roadblocks, and which could have delayed the process, adding to my agony. Mr. Schatz, however, did everything possible to avoid the worst case scenario, and was successful in doing so. Throughout this ordeal I had someone at my side who I could communicate with openly as a friend, and rely on professionally as a legal advocate. With calm confidence, compassion and honesty he assuaged my anxiety and dispelled my fears. I felt reassured knowing that Mr. Schatz was my advocate. He is a hard-working, highly competent attorney who gets the job done skillfully, affordably, painlessly and as expeditiously as possible. I was fortunate to have had him recommended to me, and will always be grateful for the way he fortified me with confidence from beginning to end. He helped settle my case before the time he had originally predicted, and adhered to the cost agreed upon at the beginning. I would recommend Jonathan Neil Schatz to anyone without any hesitation.
