After dealing with a previous attorney that was well below satisfactory, Jon blew me out the water. He goes above and beyond for his clients, asking questions, filling motions most attorneys wouldn’t think of. This is an attorney that does his due diligence, and doesn’t rip you off! I am very greatful for Jon and everything’s he’s done for me thus far.

Very professional and courteous. Truly great service.
Jon helped me thru a trying time with settling issues with insurance companies during my fight with cancer. During troubled times everyone needs a person with this kind of professional integrity to work toward a fair and justified outcome. Jon kept me informed during the entire process and advised me of my rights. Highly recommend Mr. Bethune to anyone with a legal need.

Assistance in obtaining payment for Leased Equipment
We are an out of state company that had leased equipment in New Orleans. We were having a difficult time collecting past due amounts from the lessee. Everything turned around after we retained Jon. He suggested legal strategies that helped us collect our money with a minimum amount time, effort and money. We highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use his services again. I wish he was available in other states. He did what he said he would, was attentive to our requests, and very knowledgeable. If you need an attorney, don't think twice about calling Jon.

Detailed, Understanding, and Trustworthy.
Jon represented me for a case involving wrongful termination of employment, which was a very emotionally charged and sensitive experience for me. He settled my nerves by keeping me informed every step of the way. His confidence was founded in fact which was made evident by me gleaning the just results from my case. He researched extensively in order to maximize my results, which were above and beyond what I had initially expected. Jon clearly has a passion for the business and works tirelessly - and exclusively! - for his clients. It is definitely preferable to hire someone who handles your case from A to Z personally, without delegating it to someone else. The difference is that you have someone representing you that thoroughly knows the ins and outs of your case, which in turn allows your representation to be as proactive, informed, and effective as possible.
