I spoke with Jonathan Goebel in a free consultation about a situation involving a protective order. He was amazingly helpful and honest. He gave me the most helpful and honest and calming advice I had heard all month and I spoke with multiple lawyers. he ultimately told me that in my case I didn't need to hire him but if I wanted to, he would be happy to help. If I do end up needing representation in the future, I will definitely be calling to hire him.

Professional and Kind
We recently had a need to consult with a Lawyer and we couldn’t be more satisfied that we did so with Jonathon. He was very responsive and informative regarding the details of our situation. Customer Service and kindness are not always easy to find these days but he was exactly that. He shared his knowledge, experience and guidance in a manner that was calming and helpful. We kindly thank him and highly recommend him and his Staff.

Jonathon is amazing!
I was recently informed of a bench warrant for my arrest for a potential DUI. After months of contacting the courts (numerous times) to find out what, if anything, I was being charged with, no one could offer me any details about my case. So, I began contacting attorneys to help.. I called 4 separate attorneys; none of them could find the bench warrant, no less provide a reason for the warrant (or what I was being charged with). I then contacted Jonathan Goebel at Rosenstein Law Group. Within minutes of my first conversation with Jonathan, he realized the courts had spelled my name incorrectly, and also had the wrong address listed for me (which is why I was never notified). Jonathan helped me quash my warrant the very next day! I was then able to receive a fair hearing, as well as put my anxiety as ease. Jonathan's mannerisms are to-the-point, yet compassionate. His knowledge and experience of the law are worthy of his fees. I highly recommend Jonathan for any legal issues you might be facing. Thank you, Jonathan, for all of your help! Sincerely, Sarah

Excellent Attorney!
I am fortunate to have known Jonathan when I was in the middle of a civil case. He was able to handle things right away with the court and even offer valuable advice on staying calm during the difficult time. He managed to have everything settled without any need for court appearance while I was not even in the State of Arizona at the time. Bottom line: Jonathan is a top notch defense attorney.

What a relief!
Jonathan was amazing and he did for us EXACTLY what he said he would! The whole DUI charge was very scary and we didn't know what to expect. Jonathan laid everything out for us, step by step. He did, not only what a lawyer should do, but also went above and beyond by going the extra mile with research, etc., so we wouldn't have to. What a relief to find that Jonathan was able to accomplish exactly what he said he would. He made it manageable and workable. I HIGHLY recommend him for any legal matters you might have! He was a beacon of light in a dark tunnel!
