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!

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!
