Professional and knowledgeable attorney
I hired Jon for my divorce and he did a fantastic job. Not only is he incredibly professional and diligent, but he is an incredibly hard worker. He was able to get me custody of both of my children as well as secure child support for me to support our children. I recommend Jon for all your legal needs.

Thank you Colonel Disrud
I am grateful for Colonel Disrud. He has handled four different legal matters for me. He is responsive and does what he says he is going to do. At all times, I felt like my interests were being represented and protected with the highest level of professional capability. I will use Colonel Disrud in the future as needs arise from time to time.

Honestly-the best divorce attorney in San Antonio
Jon is an excellent professional trial attorney who is intelligent, honest and ethical. He helped me with a divorce decree and expedited my trial at the Bexar circuit court. The results exceeded all my expectations. Going through a trial and proceedings is never easy as the process is difficult to focus and keep track of, with Jon and his excellent team and administrative staff, I was able to maintain my composure in those tough times so I could focus my attention elsewhere. Given his military background, Jon offers a unique advantage to a case by offering his meticulous focus on the substance of the matter and discounting any here-say or extraneous data. He is knowledgeable, articulate, well-prepared, and patient and goal oriented with mission focus to achieve the best possible outcome for his client. We need more lawyers like Jon in San Antonio and therefore I highly recommend him for any and all legal matters.

Outstanding Service!
Jon has done excellent work for me and my family now for five years. Throughout this time, Jon has been extremely helpful and available. He's a very intelligent and well-educated attorney, and understands how to get the job done in a way that sometimes only Veterans of the military do. He is a former active duty military officer, and still serves as an officer in the reserves, helping other military members with their legal cases as a JAG attorney. As a combat veteran myself, this was one of the criteria I was looking for in an attorney, somebody who possessed an outstanding work ethic, takes great pride in the work he does and conducts himself with honor. Jon is a warrior. He doesn't stop working when he gets tired, he stops working when the job is done. I have a great respect for Jon Disrud. My family and I will continue to welcome his representation whenever we need legal counsel or advice. I highly recommend Jon Disrud to anyone interested in having their case handled with the utmost care and perseverance. Jon exhibits great professionalism and honor when he handles our cases in a way that few attorneys even have the ability to do. Thanks Jon, for helping us out so many countless times and for being as flexible as you have been. We honestly can't thank you enough. I highly recommend Mr. Jon Disrud to absolutely everyone.

Excellent attorney!!
Mr. Jon Disrud is very conscientious, courteous, and knowledgeable. Many attorney's take too long to return calls or communications. He took the time to meet with my husband and I multiple times, even on short notice. We had a case that crossed state lines and Mr. Disrud's expertise in the area was a true blessing. He fought hard for our case and did everything he could. He genuinely cared about the outcome of our situation and it showed. We highly recommend Jon Disrud for any of your attorney needs and would use him again in a heartbeat. His assistant, Margaret, was also always very helpful and kind.

Excellent Lawyer
Divorce and Custody Battles are stressful enough in themselves. Combined with military TDY, training, and life responsibilities Attorney Disrud did an amazing job keeping me informed and instructing me step by step in whatever I needed to provide to continue pushing forward with our 3 year custody battle. There were times I felt like giving up and Attorney Disrud took the steering wheel and knew exactly how to carry out my wishes. I felt very comfortable with his team. He would always return my calls and emails within 24 hours and would set up crucial meetings to make sure we addressed any complications. I wouldn't have chosen another attorney.

Jon is the most knowledgeable and professional attorney in San Antonio! He had the ability to comfort me during the most stressful time in my life. Jon was able to secure quick court dates, was always available and had a ton of resources to assist in processing various actions such as retraining orders, which gave me peace of mind. He translated the confusing laws regarding divorce and child custody into a language I could understand. Hands down, the best!

Great Attorney
Mr. Disrud was an outstanding attorney for my divorce case. He fought for my rights as a man in the proceedings, always kept me informed of what was going on, and he was easily accessible to discuss my case. He was extremely professional, very knowledgeable about the law and what I needed to do to protect my children's and my rights. I would highly recommend Mr. Disrud for any divorce case.

Jon handled my divorce which included issues with a child out of state. This was a somewhat complex case as it was an issue where certain aspects started while I was out of state (Texas resident but assigned/military outside Texas and then came back to Texas to finish divorce). Jon did a great job managing not only our side but also moving the other side along as it delayed and attempted to bring issues that were not warranted. None of this is easy or fast (the easy shouldn't be but I think everyone wishes the fast in court/legal was) because it involves a lot of emotions and two potentially differing opinions. I would highly recommend Jon to any person that sadly must go through a divorce.

Jon did an annulment for me. There were no complications at all. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a straightforward person who knows the law and will tell you the facts. He will not lie to you about anything.

I am shocked that Mr. Disrud would be given such a horrible review by the previous person; he has always been a good attorney for me. I used him for my divorce, child support etc. and never had a problem with him. I can't understand why the prior review would even state that he was "asleep" during the court hearing. First of all the Judge will not let you sleep in court; hello!!!! Don't be mad because you did not get your way; accept what the law is and move on.
