I won't go into details about myself but know that I was in a particularly difficult situation and had a real uphill battel in front of me when I went to Jon. Jon knows the law inside and out. He has seen almost every "if then" scenario and proceeds only after careful evaluation of each decision, considering the possible results and after thoughtful consultation with me. Beyond the procedural Xs and Os, Jon is a brilliant tactician, Judges, DAs, experts, timelines, results, are all variables that change. Jon knows when to move forward and when to stand fast and most importantly - how to be best prepared at each stage. He understands the way the system works and translated that in plain English and clear choices. He educated me such that I could do much of the ‘soon to be expected’ work up front on my own timeline, and at my convivence. This was very deliberate and super helpful to the outcome of my case. I will note that equally important to me is the humanity I saw in Jon. I was not paying a lawyer to be my therapist, but he honestly wants to see people get better and gave me hope I did not have before. He understands the crisis of addiction. He never judged me, made me feel less of myself, and always treated me with respect. At the same time was upfront about both the best- and worst-case scenarios. I knew Jon always had my best interest in mind and was quick to respond when I had questions or concerns. I could depend on Jon to advise and even coach me in a nonjudgmental way, so we would be successful. His integrity was clear at every interaction we had, and I always felt better after we talked. And that was hard considering the possibilities we were discussing. He is a good person and well liked, and you also see that shine in court. He is always prepared, and I knew I had the absolute best lawyer when those dreaded Zoom calls started. There is a noted gravitas afforded to Jon that only comes with the combination of professionalism, tenure, and the expertise he possesses. I realize this is a long-winded review, but if someone is in the state I was in, it is the kind of information that would have helped me be successful. Jon was a critical part of that. Today I have my life back, job security, and most importantly, my family again. I would not change a thing with my decision to hire Jon and if you find yourself in a similar position, you should strongly consider my experience to make your decision. Good luck (and much of that is in your own control with Jon). I wish you well in both your legal challenges and successfully coping with whatever drove you to be in this situation.
