Honest and hardworking
We started our custody case with another lawyer at another firm and were burned pretty bad. It's scary trying to find the right lawyer with so much on the line. Alex was amazing. He was kind and patient (I felt pretty frantic sometimes). He walked us through the process with a lot of skill and grace. I never felt overcharged. We had a long phone conversation near the end of our case that he didn't charge me for. He was so sweet.

Look no further
Mr. Jones was everything you could ask for in family law representation. He handled my case in the middle of covid which family law in its self is hard enough but with that on top of that he did an outstanding job. He answered every question I had easily came up with a game plan that suited my situation. And walked me though every step of the way. When I first went to Mr. Jones being a father when it comes to the courts I was incredibly worried. I ended my case With paying a reasonable amount for incredible service. I plan to refer anyone I can to his office and use his services again if needed. -So if you are reading this in need of representation look no further retain the legal services of the Law office of Alexander M Jones.

Amazing attorney must hire
I would recommend him to anyone who is searching for an honest attorney who works hard for you. Before Mr Jones took my case, my divorce and custody battle was going for over a year and cost me over $20,000 and I was losing the fight. My old attorneys were dishonest and charging me for everything they could. Alexander Jones was very up front and honest from the start and set my expectations. He was true to everything he said and had my divorce resolved in under 3 weeks and was extremely affordable and honest with the Billings. ANYONE LOOKING FOR AN ATTORNEY GIVE HIM A CALL. He works hard and fights for you!

Calming and Supportive
Alex handled my divorce, following 14 years of marriage and including custody issues of two children. He did an excellent job of communicating with me concerning my case and ensuring I made good decisions, based on logic and reason, rather than emotion. He was a calming voice in a time of turmoil. And, he was less expensive than many of the other attorneys in town. While I can't recommend divorce, if you need to seek a divorce, I highly recommend you let Alex handle it for you.

Alexander Jones is a good choice for difficult family law issues
I retained Mr. Jones to represent me in a case where my ex-husband wanted full custody of our kids, when I have had full custody the last nine years. My ex was very difficult to work with and wouldn't mediate to try and resolve our issues. Mr. Jones won three different issues in my case and my ex who had counsel, won none. When it came time to negotiate the final parenting plan our go to court, Mr. Jones negotiated and I was able to keep sole custody of my kids with giving my ex one extra day a week. I am satisfied with the outcome and I don't think it would have gone as smoothly if it wasn't for Mr. Jones. He is affordable, he is to the point, he clearly explains things and overall is a very nice person. If you are looking for an attorney to represent you in you family law case, I would highly recommend Mr. Jones.

marriage dissolution
I hired Alexander to represent me in a complicated, contentious and difficult divorce. He was a calming influence when it came to dealing with the various emotional and mentally exhausting situations that arose, keeping me focused and reminding me what my priorities were. I found him to be knowledgeable and well aware of all areas of the rules and laws regarding marital dissolution in Oregon. I came away well satisfied with his work ethic!

Professional, Attentive, and compassionate
Alex took over our case from a colleague of his in Salem, and was highly recommended by the prior attorney. Our case was emotional, complex, and we do not live in Oregon anymore either, so there was a 300 mile distance between us. Alex made the case, and resolving the case, easy and smooth. He worked diligently to protect the interests of our teenage son while respecting my concerns for dangers the other party presented. All in all, Alex worked for the interest of the child, which I felt was most important. I would recommend him to anyone who has a family matter that needs court attention.

Hire this guy
Alexander was an excellent attorney, stayed on topic and got the job done. He knew what he was talking about, up against and the best way to approach the issues to get them solved. I have unfortunately had several experiences with custody issues and different offices and Alexander left me feeling confident about my case and in good hands. His prices are very fair, and he doesn't mess around with nonsense or waste time.

Highly Recommended
After researching divorce attorneys in my area I decided upon hiring Mr. Alexander Jones because of his specific experience with divorce and his positive recommendations. I have not regretted my choice at any point along the process. Mr. Jones was knowledgeable, firm, and clear as to my rights and responsibilities in my case. This made the process less daunting for me. There were extenuating circumstances and property complications that held up the process, and he was able to advise me as to the best way to approach and be proactive to resolve. Mr. Jones was looking out for my best interest. When I was confused, emotional and lost, he was calm, steady and clear. A divorce can be a painful and laborious process no matter how you approach it, but hiring Mr. Jones was the best choice I made throughout the situation. He was upfront concerning costs, and his billing was clear and concise. I highly recommend him as a divorce attorney.

Successful custody case
I was referred to Alexander by another lawyer that I had used in the past. Although, I was a little nervous not knowing Alexander he put me at ease quickly and got right down to business. My ex-wife is a handful at time's and I made it clear to him not to underestimate what she might try. I was right she was a real challenge to deal with but Alexander was on top of everything the whole way. Alexander was able to get everything I had asked for plus more when it was all said and done. There has been some follow up for clarifying item in the Supplemental Agreement that Alexander has also helped on and this has all been done with the same high level of expertise. He was very committed to our case and understood the finer details behind it. Excellent job.

I am thankful for Alexander
I went through the most difficult situation in my life recently. Alexander helped me through everything one step at a time. He explained everything in a clear and concise manor. He is very professional and sticks to the issue at hand. He defended my case in the presence of the court and went above and beyond the call of duty. I ended up feeling protected and was able to rest assured that Alexander would make decisions for my welfare in mind. Hire him, you will not be disappointed, he is able to defend you!

Excellence in a nutshell
Alexander is a wonderful attorney. He's intelligent and knows exactly how to handle even the toughest situations. I had an extremely complicated case and an aggressive opponent that wasn't looking to play fair. He worked my case from every angle with compassion and knowledge of the law. On top of that he was efficient and worked in a way that didn't waste time or money. I don't know where I would be if I didn't hire him. Extremely satisfied with his work and would retain him again in a heartbeat!

Custody & parenting plan revised
I had an exceptional experience working with Alexander Jones! He was there with every bit of knowledge regarding my case. When my ex decided that he wanted to adjust/revise our parenting plan and alimony, I was not happy to say the very least as we had already been through this already. But, Alex was able to let me know what the best legal action would be and also took care of everything. I felt like he saved me from a lot of unneeded stress. He was able to get paperwork filed in a timely manner as well getting info to and from the opposing attorney. Now that everything is said and done if I ever needed to go back to court I would have no hesitations giving him a call, because I know that he would get started right away and would take action immediately on my behalf!! And I would definitely have no issues referring him to anyone else needing legal assistance.

Exceeded expectations! Knowledgeable, conscientious and deligent. Strongly recommended!!!!!
I would strongly recommend Mr. Jones in family law matters. He is knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the divorce proceedings as well as make sure you understand the process every step of the way. In my case I dealt with a restraining order, a temporary order and other legal matters that were not expected when I initially started with Mr. Jones. Through every step he insured the utmost safety for my family and I and gave guidance and beneficial advice for following the necessary procedures to protect us. Mr. Jones always had our best interest in mind and his responsiveness was impressive. He always returned phone calls and emails promptly and he always made sure we were following the best practices and procedures in place to obtain the most appropriate results. Mr jones is dedicated, professional and genuine. I felt extrememly comfortable when working with him and I knew he would make the best decisions for my family and I. He works well with other attorneys and always kept me apprised of the necessary details regarding my case. Mr. Jones is thorough and efficient and I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney in family law matters. You will not be disappointed!

Divorce and Child Custody case
I hired Mr. Jones to represent me in my divorce, where the main issues centered around my two children. The case ended up dragging out because of the circumstances but Mr. Jones was responsive throughout. I appreciated that he kept me informed on what to expect at each step of the way. Most communication was through email, although he was easy to reach by phone when needed. I ended up going through mediation and although Mr. Jones could not represent me there, he helped me strategize before and after each session. My case was settled outside of a trial, so I cannot speak to what a trial would have been like (thankfully).
