I had 4 domestic violence charges against me which included a felony and 3 misdemeanors... all while going through a divorce. What a nightmare. I immediately wanted to hire the best, high priced, gray-haired lawyer I could find thinking they would be able to help me through this. Fortunately, I knew Jon and trusted him, so I asked his opinion. He assured me he had the experience and knowledge to handle my criminal case, so I hired him. With my job on the line due to the felony charge, it wasn't easy to put my livelihood in someone else's hands. I had to hire a separate lawyer for my divorce, so I found the most experienced, high-priced, gray-haired guy I could. In comparing the two attorneys, hiring Jon was the best money I could have spent. In fact, if it wasn't for his recommendation to take a paternity test (which the divorce attorney should have recommended), I would be paying my ex nearly half my salary in maintenance, alimony, and child support. Ultimately, all of the charges were reduced to a single deferred misdemeanor in a plea deal. After completing Jefferson County's Diversion program, all charges will be expunged and I will have a clean record once again. I could have spent at least three times as much on an old "experienced" lawyer, but in my experience, I received better service from Jon, with a great outcome, all at a much more reasonable price. Knowing what I know now, I wish Jon would have been available for the divorce case too.
