About me

"As amicable as possible, but as tough as needed."  Board Certified Austin divorce attorney specializing in high conflict, divorce, modification, child support, enforcement, property division, custody, relocation and other complex legal matters in and around Austin Texas.


Jonathan Friday understands that divorce and child-related disputes are inherently painful, and that all reasonable people want to handle their family disputes as simply and amicably as possible. He will work hard to settle disputes with a minimum of conflict and expense. Our firm utilizes mediation and collaborative techniques whenever possible. However, when circumstances require action, such as when opponents refuse fair settlements or resort to inappropriate tactics, Jonathan Friday is as savvy and as tough as they come. Jonathan Friday is highly respected by the Judiciary of Central Texas, and extremely effective in the courtroom.
