The smartest choice in the toughest time of your life
Absolutely, hands down, the best family lawyer in Austin. Jonathan is passionate yet level-headed, respectful yet brutally capable, and posesses honesty and virtue that demands no second guessing. I had a "friend of a friend" family lawyer at the beginning of my very painful, very messy divorce. Although I had never needed or even knew any lawyers before my divorce, after my first mediation with my initial lawyer, I just felt there was something not right, perhaps a stone left unturned? I went to Jonathan simply for a second opinion of the mediation offer I had before me. After I met with Jonathan Friday, I felt immediately safe and informed. I was extremely satisfied with the ultimate outcome of my divorce proceedings. Jonathan is the most compassionate and knowledgeable lawyer in his field. He is detail oriented in mediation matters as well as a rock-star in the courtroom under pressure. He is good people, and he works hard to do the best job he can possibly do for each and every client.
