highly recommended for divorce cases
Alex Jones represented me in a difficult dissolution case that involved an international element. He did an excellent job. Not only he demonstrated to be very competent, he also took the time to explain to me each legal step in simple and clear words, giving me all the information I needed to make my own decisions as to how to proceed with the case. Alex is also very supportive and appears to understand well the emotional toll that dissolution/divorce can take. He is a good communicator, answers to emails promptly, and won my everlasting gratitude for working during his well deserved holidays, as my case reached an unexpected climax right on New Years Eve. All this for a truly reasonable fee: highly recommended!

Talented and Ethical Lawyer
I am so impressed and very glad with the way Alex handled my case, got such a very good result, defeated my ex husband's attempt to get spousal support and to pay for his lawyer's fees and costs. Alex is a great lawyer - very talented and ethical! Thank you very much!

A very competent Lawyer
I recently retained Alex Jones as my attorney in my quest to adopt my adult godson. Alex was very knowledgeable, informative, and courteous and explained in detail all the requirements and steps necessary as well as what to expect in court. In spite of an error by the court clerk on our scheduled court date, Alex was able to rectify the situation and we were able to proceed with the hearing with the judge with a most successful outcome. I shall forever be grateful to Alex for his efficiency and professionalism. Many thanks, Alex! Roy G.

Wrongful Adoption
We called Mr. Jones in regard to a pending adoption that my Husband and I were involved in. We were expecting to adopt twins, a Boy and a Girl, however, the adoption agency we were working with, couldn't seem to "close the deal" , with the Birthmother of the children. We sought Mr. Jones advice for a possible wrongful adoption suit against the adoption agency. He took the time to read over the contract we had signed and advised us. As it turned out, the adoption was accepted by the Birthmother, however, she split the twins up and kept the Boy. We wound up not needing Mr. Jones in any type of actual litigation, however, we were, and are, forever grateful in having such a straightforward approach in advising us. He was attentive, down to earth and extremely approachable. We would highly recommend this intelligent professional attorney, and we know if we need any future help, he will be the first person we call.

Professional, Knowledgable, and Trustworthy Civil Attorney
I recently reached out to Alex Jones for assistance regarding a dental malpractice case. From the very beginning, Alex demonstrated the highest degree of knowledge, candor, and professionalism. He listened closely as I explained my situation and then discussed in detail the pros and cons of pursuing a lawsuit. Alex candidly informed me about the expenses that I could expect to incur during a lawsuit, the expected timeline for the process, and the uncertainties and risks inherent in litigating. Unlike several of the other attorneys with whom I had spoken, Alex did not rush through the initial consultation process; instead, he patiently and thoroughly responded to all of my questions and concerns. In addition, Alex put absolutely no pressure on me to pursue one course of action versus the other. He simply provided me all the information and guidance that I needed to make the decision that was best for me given my circumstances. After I tentatively decided to proceed with the initial steps of pursuing a lawsuit, Alex provided me with a detailed run-down on the various stages of litigation. For example, he gave me with advice about retaining an expert witness to evaluate my case in light of the governing dental standard of care. He also gave me a step-by-step breakdown of what we would need to do, how my adversary might respond, and what outcome I might reasonably expect to achieve. In addition, Alex was very fair and forthcoming with respect to attorney's fees, laying out a clear fee structure so that I would know exactly what to expect without any surprises at the end of the process. Alex also outlined what my responsibilities would be and gave me clear information of the deadlines by which I would need to provide him with information so that he could timely proceed to submit court filings. I ultimately decided to try to settle my case with my dentist's insurer, and Alex walked me through that process as well. He provided me with detailed and thoughtful guidance on how to approach the situation and answered all my questions in a timely and professional manner. Notably, Alex was very accessible, always returning my calls promptly; I knew that I could count on him throughout this process, which was extremely reassuring. Thanks to all of Alex's time and help, I was able to reach a favorable resolution without even litigating the case. All in all, Alex helped me through what might otherwise have been an intimidating, confusing, and time-consuming process. He was completely reliable, trustworthy, and genuinely concerned about helping me achieve the best result possible. I am grateful for all of Alex's time and assistance and could not recommend him more highly!

Alex 's knowledge and performance excellent! Always responsive, very good communication skills.
Alex Jones proved to be a the perfect attorney for our case. He was up-to-date with all current laws, his explanation of procedures proved accurate, we were prepared by Alex as each step of the case unfolded and his advise and counsel guided us to a very successful conclusion. I have had experience with a case of this type on a previous occasion and the difference was evident from the beginning, Alex really knew what he was doing.

A "Libel" Case Filed As "Civil Harassment Restraining Order"
Alex was outstanding defending me in a meritless civil harassment restraining order case. Alex brought up many First Amendment issues, and in his cross exam of the petitioner, elicited that I had never contacted, called, e-mailed, faxed, etc., anything defined in California Code of Civil Procedure 527.6. The petitioner complained that I wrote "libelous" things on a blog about her (that she had crashed her car into a building and failed to take financial responsibility for it.) Of course, it was true and the petitioner lied under oath. The judge opened the case by stating on the record that he agreed with Mr Jones's Answer, that he (the judge) didn't know if he should even hear testimony, and asked the petitioner's attorney why he (the judge) was wrong. It was beautiful. During the hearing, Alex was polite yet determined with the petitioner and called her on her non-responsive or evasive answers. Alex did not back down and pursued questioning where the petitioner became angry and defensive. Alex explained his reasons for why he was doing what he did, and I appreciated that very much.

Alex Jones Attorney Very Professional and Knowledgable
I was lucky enough to find Alex Jones on Google maps. I had a legal matter in San Francisco to take care of and Alex effectively handled the matter without requiring me to travel to San Francisco. I would have spent more on hotel accommodations and air fair than what I spent with Alex Jones. Alex deserves more than I paid him since what initially turned out to be a simple matter turned out to be complex and he stuck to his word and did not bill me anymore for his services. I can only hope that others are lucky enough to run into such an honest compassionate man in a time of need.

Fantastic Attorney
I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Jones and can honestly say that his work-ethic, knowledge of the law, and professionalism are second to none. It is with great confidence that I recommend Mr. Jones to anyone in need of outstanding legal representation.

Dedicated, thorough, and honest.
Adoption cases, we were told, are not always simple. Nine months ago we brought home a beautiful baby girl and needed to find an attorney to help us with the adoption. From our very first meeting, Alex was ready. We sat in his office and explained the entire situation. He then was able to completed the initial paperwork to get things started. Along the way we were met with more than a few bumps in the road. Alex took the time to research each “bump”, was honest about what he found and helped us weigh our options. Our adoption was final this week and Alex said that “everyone’s” hard work paid off. We are here to say that if you are looking for an attorney that will be honest with you, dedicated to your case, thorough with researching each of your options, understanding, kind, and always extremely professional, Alexander T. Jones is that attorney. Thank you Alex for everything!

Patient, understanding, and friendly.
Court cases are overwhelmingly stressfull. This was made even more so considering that we don't live in California! Alex understood what we were going through, and patiently guided us through the legal process. Alex was not only professional with us, but friendly too. Both my husband and I felt comfortable when we spoke with him. We could ask whatever questions that we needed to, and never felt rushed. The feel that my husband and I got was that of someone "going to bat" for us. By taking the time to find out what was important to us, Alex was able to properly negotiate things on our behalf. In the end, Alex managed to help us work out a settlement outside of court that we were very happy with.
