Amazing representation!
Superb Attorney. Thorough representation. Understood the various assignments and most importantly the desired outcome I shared with her. She never lost sight of the fact that my livelihood depended on her skill set. I can rest now and have a future. Thanks so much Attorney Jones. Folks—-I recommend her. She truly fixes lives.

Fierce Litigator!
Attorney Jones was a beacon of hope for me during a very rough time in my life. She navigated my case with professionalism, patience, and strong knowledge of the law. Though my case extended well past the time we anticipated (due to COVID) She remained poised and always stayed focused on our end goal. If there were ever a time I needed help, she made time outside of her work hours to meet my needs. She made sure I made sound decisions in the process and was precise and clear when I needed to refocus. I would recommend Attorney Jones to anyone because she's as a fierce litigator, she's devoted to her clients, and she gets the job done! If you are looking for a lawyer who is honest, knowledgeable, and who will fight to the end of the earth for you, choose Attorney Jones! You will never regret it!!

Valued Attorney!!
Attorney Jones has been with me for over 10 years and guided my family with numerous legal needs. I am weary of the anonymous responses about her ethical behavior and overall knowledge of the law. She is an honest attorney and doesn’t sugar coat the truth. Many can’t accept the truth that she gives but that doesn’t make it less true. If you need honest legal help and want an honest rate for that service chose her! Not only did she charge me appropriately but was willing to work with us and always gave us updates on what the charges were used for.

A rare gem in a bag of rocks
Dana Jones resolved my legal issues with integrity, sensitivity, humanity and competence with attention to my emotional and physical health during the process. She is a compassionate, upstanding member of my community who exudes the best qualities of a competent attorney. Her knowledge of healthcare law is matched only by her aggressive tenacity for justice for her clients. Righting wrongs is what she does. I would not only recommend her to any family member or friend of mine, but I would see her as appropriate for any professional or personal crisis I could find myself in. Her smile and bright personality can deceptively hide the tiger she is in the courtroom. Her prices are fair and the service level in her office is high. It is not uncommon for her to call just to check and see if her clients are doing ok and to inquire if they need additional resources to cope with the case she is adjudicating.

Helped me get beyond my share!
Attorney Jones is pure litigator awesomenessness. She fought long and hard against my ex-husband. She out-worked and out-witted my husband’s attorney and was able to show that everything I alleged about him was true. Her questions to him on the witness stand—frustrated him to the point that the Court was able to see he had anger management issues. She was able to show that he was hiding and wasting money the entire marriage. Despite his denial, the Court sided with us when they ruled that he had stepped outside the marriage. In the end, he was made to pay way beyond the amount Attorney Jones offered for him to settle at. If you need a fighter, Attorney Jones i who you should place on Retainer.

Attorney Jones is knowledgeable, comprehensive, strategic, one step ahead, and a legal advocate who cares, who will keep you informed, who will fight for you, and be the voice you need to represent vs the opposing party and their attorney. My needs were put first and I was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Attorney Jones continues to fight hard for me and my 3 children. She has went above and beyond - from unexpectedly driving to Georgia for a bankruptcy court hearing that we were not invited to. Ensuring I was represented and acknowledged resulting in the dismissal and saved me and my 3 children from the unknown. To holding the defendant accountable to agreements and not compromising. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable and credited attorney. I just wished I asked 5years ago!. Thank you! I may not be the ‘most profitable client’ of yours, but I will confidently tell you this… I am your ‘most grateful client’ and that comes from my heart. I want to thank you for the crucial and priceless information/advice you have given me regarding taking my power back!

Platinum standard
The first quality you need to be a good attorney, is to first be a good human being Attorney Jones is that and so much more she is knowledgeable ,professional hard-working,compassionate kind ,honest she knows how to get things done . She was there for me from the moment I walked into her office and long after I left the court. She went above and beyond the call of duty for me there were times when I would go into a panic about one thing or another and with her calm and reassuring voice would talk me down from the ceiling and let me know that we were in it together and she would help me through it. She gave me her honest opinion and her guidance ,when I needed it. It was always right on point and in tune with what was most beneficial for me at the time. Attorney Jones is a champion for her clients the first day I met her I told her I was new to the area and I didn't know many people she said well, now ,you know me. I want to thank you from my heart for all your help. Ms. DANA G. JONES!!!

Excellent services received
I retained her to resolve a legal matter years ago initially via word of mouth. After my first consult, I’ve been sold on Attorney Jones. She is knowledgeable, gives very timely fact-based feedback and is intensely concerned about her clients which is rare for lawyers. She took the time to check on me months after my initial case was closed. I’ve used her several times since with excellent results. She’s worth her weight in gold!

YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
First, Attorney Jones, My son, wife and I so appreciate your role this morning in helping to balance the scales of Justice. You integrated history, context, and motive into an argument on our behalf that led to an agreement that represents both what is RIGHT along with what is FAIR; for that, we are truly grateful. Secondly, we are honored that my child’s art will be hung in your office representing an enduring connection between our families. Lastly, and as I noted, your name in private from this point forward is changed from Attorney Jones to plain “goddess.” You pulled off the Impossible as usual and deserve your new title. Again thank you for all that you do. Both the seen and the unseen.

Interstate child custody issue
I consulted with Dana regarding my current child custody battle with my daughter's father, and i'm beyond grateful I did. She was blunt, honest, and very knowledgeable. She gave me a lot comfort and helpful information during this stressful time. I only wish I could have talked to her sooner!

Child custody and divorce
Attorney Jones was recommended by a co-worker and I thank my co-worker every time I see him. Attorney Jones was very helpful to my wants and needs throughout this process. She gave me the best advice a father of a 4 year old needed. She was available more than expected. Her knowledge of the law is truly remarkable. I'm thankful that I hired Attorney Jones and I would recommend her to anybody who needed her service.

She's a fierce renegade that holds them and folds them as her client's needs dictate. She's aggressive and strategic while, compassionate and reasonable.
