can't thank you enough
I got into a situation that was very serious if convicted would take many of my freedom rights away as a citizen as well as going to prison, for sure a attorney to get out of jail, and the help that was to come. I did as you would have looking for a attorney to help it was first time I was in trouble and had no idea what to do. I owned my home so there was no public defender for me. I contacted several attorneys most of them wanted around 30,000 plus expenses. I am over 75 years old an retired. One of the attorneys in longbeach i talked to did not do felony cases, and told me about Jon Quittner, what a blessing. Jon not only was willing to work with me on the cost, but was caring, and felt i was unjustly charged .He worked on my case over 3 months, and still is willing to answer questions that i have. He did get me out of my situation, still very supportive, and caring about me. Mr Quittner is a great lawyer, but more than that, but one of the nicest, caring person i have had the privilege to meet. I feel Jon is a true friend, i don't use that word very often. If you need help i truly telling you he is the best. Thank you Jon....roger

Paternity, family plan, co-parenting and primary custody
We hired Jon about 2.5 years ago to advise initially on what was a small chance of paternity. He was new to town but he clicked for us instantly. He advised late pregnancy on paternity giving us options. We chose from those and ultimately paternity was established.  This meant a need for a parenting plan, again Jon advised options well and guided through the mounds of paperwork. The decision on both sides was try co-parenting in the best interests of the child, to have the best of both sides. A plan was submitted, and the Judge ordered a GAL be attached. That wasn't what we expected but we were lucky to get a Gal that took her time, and carefully monitored. Co-parenting started out well but over time trust and co-operation degraded. Mom filed for primary first but both sides had come to the point where it was accepted it couldn't work as it was. We filed in return, and that is where Jon really came into play. That started with a hearing that established our side as temporary primary with a trial set if it wasn't worked out. A trial was imminent as the Mom wouldn't even talk about it. Again Jon and his team did well to advise and provide support throughout, insuring both sides were being fair. Trial ended in primary being permanently assigned to our side. Jon did a very good job making points while being as kind as he could be. We were lucky we had professionals across the board from medical, to development, and the GAL all looking at this situation as what was best for the child, and not gender. It was not an easy or a fast path, it was certainly not without a great deal of stress but, Jon was there the whole time. The child got what was best, that the greatest blessing of all. Needed stability, and healthy/safe situations were addressed and now is doing very well, playing catch-up, as a result.  We are pretty down to earth plain speaking people. We feel very fortunate to have gained Jon and his team not just as legal advisers, but confidants and even friends over the course of time. More than being a good Lawyer, Jon Quittner and his team are good people!

Custody and change of venue
Mr. Quittner was very helpful and provided me with the information aI needed to find the best way to go about getting a change of venue and how to go about custody for my daughter. He also was the attorney I chose to represent me in the matter and was able to help achieve the goals I was after. He was understanding in what was going on. He has helped me to settle the dispute and gain what I was after I would recommend Mr. Quittner to others with custody matters and say all around he is a genuine good attorney he is not just after money like most now days.

"Jon and I were law school classmates, and my respect for him has only grown since then. His ability to build his own practice in an entirely different community is a testament to his work ethic and independent spirit. Jon is also intelligent and thoughtful, and he has that rare ability to bring out the best in people--often via his wit and sense of humor. These "intangibles" are what set Jon apart and allow him to be an excellent advocate."
