Thank you Jon!!!
Our group of Plaintiffs have been Clients of Attorney Jon Tew, and the Law Firm Robertson, Johnson, Miller, and Williamson for 8 years. We knew we needed to help our group find a great local Reno, NV attorney. Our case involved a contract dispute with a large local Corporation that has dozens of attorneys on staff. Jon's team accepted our case, knowing it would be time consuming to find, prepare and present the facts on our behalf. They worked tirelessly to show the court that the defendants were intentional in their efforts to financially harm their clients. Jon's part in this effort helped his team uncover lost compensation for years of excessive fees and fraud. Jon is always patient and thorough in explaining the law as it pertains to our case in understandable language. Jon and the team communicates effectively with our group in personal meetings, telephone conference calls, and e-mail updates. Jon also has a calm, confident demeanor in court, always showing respect for the Court, the Law, and his clients. Thank you Jon!!! M&G

Highly Recommended!
After recently being laid off, I decided it was time to start my own consulting business. Jon helped me assess my the business entity options, form an LLC, and negotiate my first contract. He was extremely professional, responsive, and helpful. I am so thankful for all his help, as I embark upon a new phase of my career. I would highly recommend him to others. Hands down one of the best professionals I have ever worked with!

Excellent Lawyer!
I worked with Jon in forming a real estate holding LLC. He was fast, professional, asked the right questions and handled what we asked of him. I'm still working with Jon and would absolutely consider him for any new projects that came up.

Excellent and practical advisor
I highly recommend Jon. His command of the law was excellent. He and his firm's actual transactional and litigation experience complemented his knowledge of the state of the law. Jon was consistently responsive, met deadlines, and stayed within our agreed financial expectations. I would hire him and his firm again without a moment's hesitation.

Mortgage/ Trust deed
We call Jon Tew's office seeing that they did much of their work with Real Estate activities. Jon took my call, was very courteous, and professional, and took my job. From my perspective he did an excellent job with my project, and kept calm when others were creating distracting drama. We thank him for his work, and would definitely recommend him, and his firm for future legal work.

Very thorough.
I was referred to Jon through a mutual contact to consult on a legal contract for my business. He took the time to be sure all of my questions were answered thoroughly and was a huge help in the process.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Tew has been helping me with my company's lease negotiations for about a year. He has always gone out of his way to deal with our issues and deadlines in a timely manner, even outside of normal business hours. He is personable and professional and I highly recommend his services!

Real Estate Dispute
We retained Jon and his firm to help us collect on a debt owed on a real estate deal that went sideways. The principal of the deal and his attorney were intentionally difficult to deal with in spite of owing a refund of a 6-figure investment. Jon is knowledgeable, responsive, and willing to push when necessary while still remaining professional. Highly recommend connecting with him if you need counsel in areas he works in.

Recommendation for Jonathan Tew
Jonathan got right to the important facts and was very diligent in how he processed the information and arguements of my case. He reviewed pertinent case law that was supportive or contrary, as appropriate, and did so in a much more efficent manner than I have experienced with other attorneys. He also truley cared about my ability to tolerate risks or liability and gave me good legal basis for decisions. I highly recommend Jon.
