Jon Von Achen

Senior Litigation Attorney

Wichita divorce attorney Jon Von AchenWichita divorce attorney Jon Von Achen has worked off and on in family law since his first job doing child support work for the state of Kansas.

Thanks to all that experience, he is skilled at developing personal relationships with his clients to better help them reach whatever goals they have for their case.

“Regardless of the circumstance, I connect with my clients in a way that they understand what I am trying to accomplish for them,” Mr. Von Achen said.

Above all else, Mr. Von Achen stresses the importance of communication in family law.

“If I don’t know what is going on, what you want, when circumstances are changing, or when you are about to take action, it can severely impair my ability to help you through the process,” he said. “I can help you reach your goals, but it is much easier when we work together in the process.”

Although family law is very challenging, Mr. Von Achen appreciates that it touches on so many other areas of law.

“You can be dealing with real estate, employee benefits, banking, business law, and even sometimes criminal law, all within the same case,” he said. “Cases may have similarities, but no two cases are exactly alike.”
