I am 23 and wanted to get an adult adoption for me to be adopted by my step father. John was very efficient and pleasant to work with. He knew what I needed and it was a very quick process. He made sure to keep me updated in all aspect of the case and if things weren’t getting done in a timely manner he checked in on them for us. He worked around what I could do being semi out of town. 10/10 would recommend him for any adoption needs!!

We recently did an adoption and Jon was amazing to work with. Quick response, great follow ups and informative. He is a very genuine individual. If your looking for someone that knows what they are doing and you want the job done correct, then you should not look any further. I am very thankful that we had him by our side through our process.

Jon was amazing to work with on our sons adoption. It was unknown how smooth it could go but after hiring him we felt confident whether it was smooth or not. We really appreciate him and knew he cared about our case. Not only would we recommend him to others, but we will definitely be hiring him again if we ever need to! Thank you Jon Nicholson

We just completed our first of two adoptions. Jon Nicholson came highly recommended from other Foster Parents who have adopted. We were so happy with his professional and uncomplicated way of moving through the process. He answered all our questions before we even had to ask them and guided us every step of the way. It was truly a stress free experience. We highly recommend Jon and are thrilled to use him for any other family law services we may need in the future.

Jon came recommended by a friend. We had a stress-free and extremely fast process when adopting our child. He started working the very first time I called him and kept us in the loop throughout the entire case. He provided phone calls and even step-by-step instructions for me to follow after the adoption to make sure everything went well.

With Jon’s help I was able to adopt my foster child. He came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. From the time the papers were filed until the adoption was final was approximately 2 months. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He was available for questions and promptly responded to messages left. His fees are quite responsible. Good job Jon. Thank you.
