Trusting, protective, reassuring
When we first faced this complex and serious criminal charge against our daughter , Jeff Nona took on the challenge by immediately visiting her at the jail and then contacted us to report what he could do and advice on how to proceed with this new frightful issue in our family that we had never experienced before. Often we were fearful and he'd explained the challenges a head of us and because of his vast knowledge and experience we always felt relieved and comforted about what to expect. Jeff immediately responded to all our questions and reassured us that things were on target and what to expect next. We gained a trust in his ability to have our daughter's best interest at heart and he spend quality necessary time with her and our family. In this way it helped her to retain her dignity as well and alleviate our family's concern. We saw that he was highly regarded and respected among his legals associates. His legal staff, Lisa was in lock step with Jeff and our case and did everything to maintain a professional and highly knowledgable service. We would highly recommend him to others who are facing serious legal charges to take on your case.

his law office is 100% dedicated to their clients,
Mr. Jeff Nona is an outstanding attorney, he believed in me when friends and family turned their backs on me, Lisa and Jeff are extremely professional and still keep it real. This law office is 100% dedicated to their clients, I have personally experienced this and been in the office and seen it with other clients, I wouldn't recommend any other law firm, and I was dealing with two law offices in my time of need, Jeff is the fella you want in your corner for sure. I was completely blessed when he answered my call.

AMAZING
Let me first say that both Mr. Nona and Lisa are amazing people! After 11 months of dealing with a false accusation by my ex because of a heated custody battle. Mr. Nona took the time to research the case and inevitably won it for me. He was honest (which for a lawyer is hard to find) caring and he went above and beyond to defend me. I am grateful to both Lisa and Mr. Nona. I would HIGHLY recommend them for your legal needs!!!

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO HIRE THE BEST- HIRE JEFF NONA!
Before I hired a DUI defense attorney I contacted several attorneys I know and asked them who they thought was the best. Their unanimous recommendation was Jeff Nona. I hired Jeff and he was a true professional with exceptional skills in relating to his client and all matters pertaining to the court system. I recommend you hire him. He will impress you from the start, throughout the legal process, and follow up afterwards. Most importantly he got the results I hoped for. His paralegal and office manage, Lisa Wilson, was a pleasure to work with and was always on top of my case. Thank you to the Nona team!

Outstanding Defense outstanding Firm
Jeff and Lisa were the most professional and outstanding team. Jeff took the time to explain everything, we would be having to deal with, and he gave my son the best defense. Lisa and Jeff kept me informed and this was priceless. I got the information directly from Jeff as we were moving thought this case. I got my son back. They do what they say. Other attorney's might blow smoke up your backside but in this case Jeff and Lisa were on fire. They are wonderful. They do way more than expecting. They did what they said. If you need a serious defense attorney, you won't find better. I say this with all honesty...they gave me my son back. This team also cares about the continued success of their clients. How many can say that? I was kept informed, and this meant the world to me being out of state. I really can't say enough about how much I appreciate the work Jeff did for my son. You need a serious attorney for a serious case then Jeff is your man. The prosecutors know Jeff knows his stuff. Lisa is also a rockstar.

When you need the truth and best outcome!
I had a DUI and was referred to Jeff Nona from the bails person. Hired Jeff and team and they have always been on point, truthful, guiding and supportive in this 2 year ordeal. What happened is exactly what Jeff shared with me. I did my penance, learned my lesson, ( Thanks Idaho.) Without hesitation, I would use Jeff again and refer others to his office. a breath of fresh air due to their knowledge and execution on your behalf.

The best decision I ever made was to hire Jeffery Nona. When I was arrested for trafficking marijuana I was terrified. Everyone's told me that I was going to jail for minimum 1 yr. I could not believe what I was hearing, As I was on vacation from California and it's was legal there. From the first time I spoke to Lisa and Jeff I knew that I was in great hands. Not only did I not go to jail for any amount of time, but he got me a great deal and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. As Ford Lissa she is the best. She stayed in contact with me the whole times answering any and all questions and concerns that I had. if you are in need of an attorney you couldn't get a better one

Great Choice
I appreciate open honesty and that is what I got from Jeff Nona! No hidden secrets, explanations that I could understand as well as painting the picture of life while going through my bump in the road of life. When he says that he is here for us, I believe he means it. Thank you for everything!!
