Excellent Attorney & Down to Earth
Jon provided representation in an automobile accident injury. His knowledge of the insurance world was extraordinary and resulted in a settlement far beyond our expectations. He was able to explain technical matters in plain English and kept us grounded in reality (i.e. didn't overpromise just to get business and didn't lowball offers just to lessen his workload). I consider him very trustworthy. Also, he was very considerate when discussing emotionally difficult matters such as traumatic injury, emotions, etc. Although we chose to settle with insurance, I have complete confidence in his courtroom abilities and knowledge of jury views and outcomes for personal injury cases. I recommend him to others frequently.
