When I met with Jonathan Dana almost immediately upon realizing that my marriage was ending, I was very raw with emotion, confused, and nervous about my future. And most of all, I was afraid that the very contentious beginning of our divorce would mean that we would end up resolving our issues in court.
Jon initially related to me as a person not as a client – helping me to put things in perspective and reminding me that one day I would be just fine. Then he took care of me as the client – explaining how the law applied to my particular situation, answering my many questions, and outlining possible courses of action for me to choose among. As we made those choices together, he immediately put into action the steps necessary to effectuate those choices.
I particularly admired how he advocated for me when dealing with my ex-husband and his lawyer, being professional and polite, yet firm. I think the combination of his confidence based on many years of experience and his professional style helped to change what was initially a very contentious situation that could have easily ended up in court into a straightforward yet fair settlement process.
And he has proven to be right – I am doing just fine.
