Hard Worker who cares about you.
I was referred to Jordan because of a very weird and crazy divorce case. Jordan was very professional and placed himself in my corner like a bulldog. He hates injustice and will fight with all his strength to get a right resolution. He went to bat at every turn to resolve issues. He was easily reachable by phone, e-mail and text.I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone and know he will work hard for them.

Honest and Reliable
I decided I was going to file for divorce and had no idea where to begin. I got a consult from Jordan and hired him immediately after realizing he was extremely knowledgeable and I felt like he would fight for me. Working with him through a difficult divorce process he did just that. He was very responsive and helped me navigate what was one of the most stressful times of my life. I was very pleased with the results and would recommend him to anyone in a divorce situation.

Jordan really helped us through a difficult time and was fast, effective and affordable.
I can't say enough about Jordan. I needed an attorney in the Phoenix area for my elderly mother. Jordan was able to guide us through the process of an uncontested divorce and make the process as painless as possible for both parties. He was thoughtful and really went above and beyond explaining the process multiple times to my mother, really holding her hand every step of the way.

Custody
My husband and I needed legal advice and guidance on custody and child support. We had reviewed so many attorneys, and Jordan was instantly a perfect fit for our case. His confidence, knowledge, and expertise has kept us at ease in this ongoing matter. He has prepared us, guided us, and has discussed everything with us so we’ve never felt in the dark. He has been prompt, responsive, and has left absolutely nothing undone. We are so thankful to be working with him during this time. We honestly could not have asked for a better attorney.

Thanks
Jordan was extremely helpful in guiding me through my divorce. He clearly explained my options, was upfront about fees and was ALWAYS responsive to my calls or emails. He offers a free consultation without any pressure I highly recommend him. Divorce is a very stressful event in anyone’s life. Jordan will guide you through the process in a calm, informed and professional manner. I highly recommend him.

Child support case
My husband and I were in a very difficult child support case and needed more assistance, we reached out to MAYS & ZITRON lawyer firm and it was the best decision. Jordan Zitron has been an absolute pleasure to work with he answered all our questions promptly and explain to us the best route to go in order to get this matter taken care of. He drafted up pristine documents and was persistent in contacting the other party to get papers signed. We are beyond happy with the assistance we received from Jordan. Adam and Alyssa Parsons

Worst 2 Years of My Life Turned Into A Success!
I had a weird situation where I was in dear need of a lawyer. Jordan helped 100%! A little background- I was in a 2 year-long decision-making process with the courts (granted at some point then had to return into the courts) and Jordan not only proceeded and helped grant everything desired but he also went above to make sure going forward I would not have any issues. This long-drawn process was dreadful until Jordan came along. Would recommend his services to anyone who is in need.

Excellent assistance in time of need
I went to Jordan Zitron looking for help with my divorce. I have 6 children and I expressed my concerns with Jordan. Mr. Zitron is knowledgeable and was a guiding light through this process. Going in I was worried about my family. He had the answers to all I was in need of, from how to get my wife served with the documents to how to keep myself out of harm's way as far as what may potentially putting myself at risk. I strongly recommend Jordan if you are in need of assistance in these type of matters. If you feel that you need a lawyer with your family interests special needs, he's the guy for the job.

Needed an Attorney‼️
I reached out to Jordan to help with a situation that needed immediate attention! Jordan was very helpful and he was also willing to take the time to walk me through few different options that were available to me. After weighing on all my options I decided to hire Jordan for his services. I Later returned to hire his services again due to my first experience with him.

Honest, extremely knowledgeable, hard-working and I highly recommend!
When I first called Jordan I was just expecting to set up a consultation. I was on the phone with him for an hour. We had lost faith in lawyers a long time ago and had self-represented up until that point. We knew we were getting in over our heads and needed help. So I took to the internet and researched as many reviews and credentials as possible. On that initial hour long phone call he told me steps we needed to take immediately in order for our case and kids to have a chance. I filed the petition immediately. He even told me that I wouldn’t need to retain him until the petition was granted. The first meeting he told us at the very least we would get more visitation if not full custody. We pushed for full custody given the circumstances. We gave him the huge binder full of possible exhibits the first time we met in person. He was prepared, actually remembered the initial phone call and read the history of our case online. The next time we saw him it seemed as if he studied the potential exhibits and actually retained the information. He even met with us the day before Easter on a Saturday for over 2 hours to help us prepare for upcoming dates. He took notes in an organized manner to help streamline our thought process during a stressful situation. There’s was so much information it was almost overwhelming to us let alone what he was having to retain. He did it with ease! Anytime we needed anything we called or emailed and he was right on top of it. This man took on our case with compassion, honesty, care, fight, professionalism and was a god send for our family. I HIGHLY recommend Jordan to anyone that wants a good lawyer who takes a personal approach to taking care of his clients needs and delivers high quality, honest results.

JORDAN ZITRON
Jordan Zitron helped me with my divorce. This was something that I had been dragging for 3 years now. When Jordan was hired for my case he quicky assumed the position as my attorney and assured me everything would work out. He handled everything with great professionalism and things were done in a timely manner. He informed me at every step and answered all my questions. I am so grateful for his work !

All around excellent attorney
First I’d like to start by thanking Jordan‘s Zitron he did an amazing job not only preparing but delivering my case. He excepted me as a client with with only four days before my hearing I spoke to five separate law firms being from New YorkJordan was the only one that was really willing to listen And was very fair priced. Thank you again Just a follow up: my attonney in New York State needed some confirmation on the order I received in Arizona and with Jordan’s help and knowledge of the judicial system I feel like I’m going in to court in New York with much better chance than if my lawyer didn’t speak to Jordan. I can’t thank you enough

Amazing
A friend who used Jordan’s services for a divorce recommended him to me. I was recently involved in a domestic violence incident where my child was in danger. Jordan responded fast, and by the end of our first call I had a plan in place. I’m keeping me self and my son safe thanks to Jordan. His experience will show within minutes of speaking with him. Please do not hesitate to speak with him regarding you or your child’s well being. Thank you Jordan

A Straight Shooter
Jordan Zitron is the attorney I decided to go with in the hardest time of my life and I'm glad I did. My then wife of 15 years decided to move on with her life one day and take my son with her and file two order of protections based on lies. Jordan did everything he said would and after 2 of the hardest months of my life I got both order of protections dismissed and even 50/50 custody. As I write this I'm watching my son play for the first time in what feels like forever. Even though I was hesitant to take his advice about some of the exhibits he wanted to show the judge, I'm pretty sure it was because of these that I got the outstanding results I did. He's honest which is hard to find in any attorney. I definitely recommend him. Thank you Mr.Zitron!

Took Fantastic Care ofmy Divorce Needs at a reasonable price
I specifically wanted to let anyone know if you’re looking for some good advice kind representation and quick responses when you have questions or problems then Jordan is your guy!!! The whole divorce process thing was quite scary and overwhelming and while interviewing other lawyers they either wanted to go in like a shark and rip things apart and overcharge me or not really give a crap and hand me to someone below them Jordan always gave me personalized attention regardless of the time or day and I would strongly recommend at least putting him in your top three I talk to you about 12 different lawyers and I stopped my look once I had one phone call with him he held up his end of the deal when it comes to giving me the correct price point as well as taking very good care of my needs specifically with my children so I would probably fill up every single character if Given the opportunity so I’ll let it be at that I would never look anywhere else if I personally knew a friend or family member that needed strong but reasonable representation what else can you ask for these days and all of this in the middle of Covid I’m truly blessed to find him.

Passionate for you
We have worked with Jordan several times now on our child custody cases. (We keep ending up in court for ridiculous things) he has always been super knowledgeable, seems to know exactly how things will go, and provides accurate advice. The best thing about Jordan though, is that he’s passionate for you. The first time we spoke on the phone, he was clearly upset about our situation for us. Like a close family member! It is fantastic and he uses that passion to drive results. If you’re looking for someone reasonably priced but with fantastic results!

On going Case
I am currently working with Jordan on a divorce case, and so far, he has been amazing. He is easy to talk to and makes you feel like you aren't alone in the situation. My case is an ongoing case at this time, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with him as this matter becomes resolved.

Highly Recommend
Jordan has been helping me through my divorce for a while now. He has helped calm my nerves & anxiety so much. He is so incredibly thorough, spends so much time explaining things & answering my silly questions. I was so nervous going in to this process, but with knowing I have a great attorney with such knowledge, experience and a strong willed attitude, I feel much more confident.

They've both been a delight to work with, and they both seem focused on resolving cases outside of court whenever possible and helping ensure parties keep as much of their dignity and self-respect as they can while going through one of the most traumatic times of their lives.
