Jonathan always keeps the end goal in mind in advancing your case. An experienced attorney can help prevent your case from being bogged down in emotionally driven delay or vindictiveness. A fair and efficient resolution helps brings peace and stability, safeguards your future, and sets you and your family up for future success.
Jonathan has an outstanding reputation for honesty and integrity in the legal community and works well with other attorneys. This helps him reach a fair settlement or final outcome in your case.
Jonathan enjoys crafting creative solutions in child custody and property division matters. He is a strong proponent of mediation and other alternative dispute resolution procedures that encourage compromise and buy-in from both sides. An amicable settlement is almost always the best option if done in good faith, with full disclosure, and in the spirit of mutual respect.
If mediation or settlement talks fail or are inappropriate, Jonathan is prepared to fight for your rights in court. Some issues cannot be subject to compromise, such as drug use by a parent, family violence committed by a spouse or partner, child abuse, dangerous criminal behavior, parental alienation, or fraud. Jonathan is ready to move quickly to safeguard his clients and their children in such situations.
Jonathan enjoys family law, cares about his clients, and takes pride in helping people move to the next stage of their life. When he is not working, Jonathan enjoys spending time with his children, running, the outdoors, and going to movies and museums.
