"Mr. Charnitski continuously proved himself to be an excellent attorney by handling every aspect of my custody modification case in a professional, hard-working, and knowledgeable manner. He had a solution to every problem I presented, and a legitimate answer to every question I asked. He made it a point to keep in prompt contact with me, and he kept me up to date with everything he was working on regarding my case. Moreover, he achieved all this with a positive attitude and a friendly demeanor. I will definitely call on him in the future if I ever need any legal advice or counsel; and I highly recommend him for anyone who needs a great attorney."

"I contracted with Jon to assist my company with what originally appeared as a simple contract dispute and quickly turned into a very convoluted matter. He was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable of the law. While he was quick to provide insight or guidance, he maintained contact in an efficient manner. He was very diligent in his research and very adaptable as our matter became more complicated. It was his attentiveness and thoroughness that helped make me and my business partner very comfortable throughout the entire situation despite the growing complexities of the situation. His recommendations were very concisely outlined and clearly articulated; something that saved us significant time and provided a very clear roadmap of our options. The outcome of our situation was EXACTLY what we had sought to achieve. We could not have achieved this outcome without Jon's assistance and guidance. I highly recommend Jon. While I hope to not find myself requiring legal counsel in the future, I would look to Jon immediately given our past experience with him."
