This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Jonathan’s comment: “With all due respect to AVVO, and there is very little for their rating system, this suspension was not law related but related to my personal life. I am more than happy to discuss.”

I hired Mr. Milestine for a CPS case. He handled my case with professionalism and sensitivity. He helped me make logical decisions when I was an emotional wreck. He is the type of attorney that is on your side, not only understanding the law but human nature as well. I would highly recommend Jonathan.

I am a licensed mental health counselor, a therapist in private practice for over 30 years, and recently retained Jonathan on the advice of another attorney that I regard quite highly but was unavailable. His high praise for Jonathan proved true, as he was both very professional and personable in his representation of my case, which was basically a delusional ex-client claiming that I and members of my family were stalking her. She was able to use the state to get a domestic violence restraining order against me and my son, who did not know her, and the assistance of a "victim's" advocate at taxpayer expense as the state has written these laws to "protect" the "victim" even if everything they say is utterly fallacious. Jonathan put together an excellent defense (you have to basically prove you are innocent as the state is quite willing to assume otherwise) demonstrating that dates and times she said she was being "stalked" were times when I was out of state, along with other impossible scenarios she contrived. This has made a deep impression up me that there are a lot of very deeply disturbed individuals out there who are even worse off than you might detect or imagine in a counseling session. And should you come across one who wants to mess with your life for their own insanely self-indulgent motives, it is good to know an effective, kind, skillful and reasonably-priced lawyer to protect and vindicate you. Jonathan is one such attorney and I will be referring all of my clients who need legal consultation to him from now on, knowing they will be well served. He also gives a one hour free consultation to fully understand your situation and assess what can be done to help you.

Mr. Milstein did an excellent job on recent legal work for me that involved parenting issues. He was easy to talk to, very kind, and thorough and prompt. I recommend him with enthuasism and with no reservations. He is extremely knowledgeable in this area of work

I endorse this lawyer's work. Especially if you are involved in dependency litigation as a parent. As a former assistant attorney general for the State of Washington, he knows all the in's and out's of dependency law, which is a very esoteric area of legal practice: there are very few attorneys with more than a handful of cases under their belts. I do know about Jonathan's suspension and endorse him despite it. He is an extraordinary lawyer, his clients adore him, and he has never once dropped a legal ball.
