Virginia Beach Client Testimonials


“Everything with Jonah has been handled very professionally. He is exactly what I was looking for in representation …”


“He is very responsive and follows up as needed. Erik has provided outstanding counsel to me. He helps me make clear rational decisions, not ones made on pure emotion alone. I love that Erik is technology savvy, meaning his communication methods (text and emails) are my preferred way to communicate. Phone conversations and face-to-face encounters can be time consuming and not always conducive to my busy schedule. He has strong interpersonal relationship skills and is an excellent listener. The last thing I’d say is that Erik is very thorough, and I feel he is invested in my case and truly cares about getting the best outcome for me, meaning he isn’t looking to keep the meter running. He looks out for me and makes recommendations that are beneficial and money saving for me. Although I don’t like the situation I’m in relationship-wise with my spouse, I am thankful Erik was designated as my attorney!”


“Jonah has been very professional. I had to struggle financially to get this done, and he definitely showed concern for me as his client.  I had a bad experience with an attorney before, but Jonah did a great job. …”
