Excellent Attorney
It was a pleasure working with an attorney who made everything easy to understand and executed our wishes exactly how we envisioned them. My husband is a financial advisor who is not easily impressed! Jon was a perfect fit for both of us!

Professional, caring and efficient
Jon prepared all my estate planning documents. He was thorough, efficient and made good use time during our two appointments. Jon is professional and knowledgable - he anticipates questions before you even ask them. His personality puts you at ease and you can tell he is committed to making sure the people he works with are treated fairly and with kindness.

Hired Jon and worked with him for over a year. Jon is very professional and knowledgeable on military and civilian law. I worked with him in the civilian and military courts. Jon was always on time in response to the courts and fair when giving advise on the options of the situation. When it came time for the military appearance the odds were against us. Jon’s expertise and knowledge of the law resulted in winning the case with the most favorable result. His knowledge of the rules, regulation, and current policies in place proved the the action presented by the military unlawful, and unfair. Overall I am highly satisfied with my time spent with Jon and would recommend him to any one.

Great Experience!
My wife and I needed to update our will and trust, as they were 10 years old. Jon was courteous, knowledgeable, and patient in answering the many questions we had regarding current inheritance laws, and how to address problems we might encounter with our blended families. He made several recommendations that had not been previously applied. We do not hesitate at all in recommending this fine young man for anyone needing an experienced, helpful attorney.
