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!

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.

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!
