Our Past Clients Tell
Their Stories

  • Attorney Vaughan Jones is wise, insightful and extremely attentive to his clients.

    “Attorney Jones represented my son. His case had complicating factors, which required Attorney Jones to research other similar cases and to contact other attorneys with the particular expertise. my experience with other attorneys was that they are uninterested in learning new techniques and options for the best outcome. Attorney Jones was willing to listen to us and realize that the best outcome required him to go above and beyond his usual routine, and found a solution that was the best for my son. This took more than dedication it took someone who was also compassionate for his client. I am more than 100% satisfied and totally recommend him. Thank you, thank you, Attorney Jones, for all the hard work you expanded on our case.”
