Client Review

Mr. Kessous came to me through a recommendation and I’m sure glad he did.

Mr. Kessous lived up to his recommendation of a great attorney and proved to be very trustworthy, knowledgeable, experienced, and very committed.

I presented him with a complex yet intriguing traffic matter that had serious implications. The case dragged on for over a year as we both had to commute about 2 hours each time to court (8-10 times). Now that’s commitment to your client!

With his extreme patience and perseverance, we were both able to get exactly the results we wanted. I never doubted his instincts from the first second I met him. Thanks again Jonathan!
