"I have used many attorneys over the years, but none has been as efficient and effective as Jonathan Paul. In addition to his timely and thorough review of numerous agreements, he negotiated full settlements on 2 matters I sent over – another law firm had been handling the first one and had not resolved the issue in over 15 months of working on it. After turning it over to him, Jonathan Paul sent one e-mail and made one phone call and, not only did I receive the full amount owed within a week, but the company we had been in a dispute with asked to form an expanded partnership, and Jonathan did an excellent job in helping to structure that deal."
