Learn what our clients think about us.
Our client reviews reflect that more the one-third of our new cases are returning satisfied clients.
Many are consulting us in another legal area. Our six attorneys cover 15 areas of the law.
We spoke to a lawyer and after describing our case the lawyer said it was beyond the scope of his ability (very nice man and a good lawyer, but our case was complex). That lawyer referred us to Norm Short. Norm Short was amazing. We have seen him twice and expect to work with him further. He was thorough, understanding, considerate, and has done an amazing job for us. After reading other reviews I felt sorry for another prospective client because had she waited, she would have found Mr. Short to be exactly what you hope your lawyer to be.

I STRONGLY SUGGEST GOING TO SEE DAVID JONES!
For Family law, custody issues and protecting what's best for young children, you can not get a better knowledgeable and caring Attorney to represent your case. Our Family was referred by a close friend who was going through a similar struggle. David Jones was such a huge help and won our case in a shorter amount of time than we anticipated. We didn't even have to go to trial. He truly believes in what he does and we felt like we were listened to and educated through the whole process. Never once did we feel like we were just a number. I appreciate an attorney who is honest, transparent and will go out of his way to make sure you understand everything through the process and fight for you, your children and your children's children. Yes, 3 generations now in our Family that he and his team has represented not only in family law but other aspects. We will always go to David Jones & GS Jones. You can trust him, you can trust them. Good people fighting for you!

Working with John Groseclose was one of the best things I've ever done
I was referred to John by one of my friends when I told her I was getting a divorce. Working with him was one of the best things I’ve done! He gave great advice and direction, and was extra accommodating with my crazy work schedule and odd hours. He helped me get everything I wanted and then some, nd the entire process was actually really quick because of him. 10/10 would recommend hiring John and his firm for anything you need legal assistance with!

GSJones Law Group is a legal powerhouse
My Husband of 35 years was laid to rest. All sorts of legal problems come up when dealing with families, pensions, properties, and who gets what and who does what. GS Jones Law Group has all kinds of lawyers. As a legal powerhouse this office can and did handle it all in house, with considerable legal expertise and professional execution. I was guided skillfully thru the process.

John Groseclose is amazing!
When I first met John at our consultation, he was straight to the point and honest. I was wanting custody back of my daughter, he told me the things I needed to do and have that will look best in court. I believe it was one year later when I hired him after doing all the things he recommended. What I liked about John is that he told me things that I may not like to hear but it was necessary in order to win they case. He was well spoken in court and he knew what he was doing. He explained to me how to behave in court. We ended up winning the case. John is amazing, everyone at the law firm is amazing, they are all so intelligent and kind. I’m so glad I got to experience this with John.

Norm Short: knowledge of the tax code and IRS processing is outstanding
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Responding to an inquiry from the IRS is daunting. Having competent legal representation is highly advisable. With that in mind, I highly recommend Norm Short. His knowledge of the tax code and IRS processes is outstanding. Combined with his high legal acumen, professionalism, and genuine kindness, Norm can provide the necessary guidance and representation that you will need.
Bankruptcy: Seamless, confident support
I was very worried about what filing a bankruptcy case would be like. Larry’s seamless, confident support made me feel at ease from the beginning. He went beyond what I expected with his approachable, friendly manner and by making it easy to contact him for reassurance. It was like he threaded the eye of the needle with a steady hand. After my case was over, he helped me with student loan forgiveness and the associated tax issues. He obviously had a broad overall systemic know-how.

This firm had my back. Highly recommend
Whatever your legal need this law firm is worth the price. John Groseclose expertly fought my divorce case for me and got me everything I asked for and more. When my ex-wife started trying to have me falsely accused of despicable things it was this firm that had my back. Highly highly recommend.

David Jones: Great at mentoring and guiding
I had the opportunity to meet Attorney David Jones back when I was trying to represent myself years ago in what turned out to be a painful nightmare of a family case. David was great at mentoring and guiding me throughout the entire deal. He was patient, believed in me and showed good faith when no one else would (like I doubt any Attorney ever will). I am lucky as well as very much impressed to have found an Attorney that is actually – HUMAN. If you are looking for a great Attorney involving a family case who will advocate/represent your best interest as well as your family’s best interest while also being straightforward throughout your entire experience in court then this is your guy. The Staff there is pretty great as well I never had a bad experience with any of them. My legal matter was a family case but the GSJones LAW Group has other Specialists for other legal matters as well. I would very much recommend at least to schedule a CONSULT so that any of you can learn/discuss your options and perhaps even develop a game plan to whatever legal matter you are, could be or will be dealing with in the future. Cheers!

John Groseclose did a fantastic job!
My attorney did a fantastic job for me! He even hired a private investigator for my ex to be able to be served when he didn't want to be found. He was very considerate and respectful of my situation. Couldn't have asked for more 🙂

David Jones takes care of all of the hard and scary parts of child custody
For 2 years I have been fighting for my little girl. My very first trial I had a lawyer from another firm that was very detached and unwilling to truly help me. He was just after my money and not the wellbeing of myself or my daughter. My second trial I represented myself and was able to come out on top, but the third trial was the one that really mattered, and I couldn’t handle the stresses of the situation by myself. My family came together and we decided to search for the very BEST attorney in Port Orchard, and we found him at GSJones Law.
David Jones was nothing short of amazing. He is a family man with extensive knowledge regarding family law, and he takes care of all of the hard and scary parts of child custody. David is kind, funny, hard working, timely, and most of all he is willing to fight your battle. I truly cannot put into words how truly thankful I am for this man!
I promise you will receive the best help and experience from this law group, and if you hire David Jones I can promise you will not be disappointed with the help he can provide your situation.

David Jones: No more stresses or worries with child support
We worked with David Jones after already trying to represent ourselves in getting a parenting plan and child support order entered with the non
custodial father. Once we handed everything to David we no longer had the stresses nor worries we dealt with prior to meeting him. David was able to avoid court by working out
agreements out of court, Guiding us with his wisdom for what was right. His assistant, James was also very nice to work with. He was always easily reached if we had any
We would recommend David Jones whole heartily.

David Jones: Good reputation for truthfulness and fair dealing
I have known Dave since he began practicing in Kitsap County. His primary area of practice is domestic relations law and I believe his reputation in this area is good. Dave’s firm handles guardianship cases which is one of my areas of practice. I believe Dave is knowledgeable and competent in this area, and has a good reputation for truthfulness and fair dealing.

John Groseclose: Liked that I could rely on GSJones lawyers for anything that came up
I used several attorneys in the office for divorce, real estate law, personal injury and when my husband died. John Groseclose helped me most recently with my late husband’s pension and property.
John guided me through difficult times and incredible paperwork. What I like about John is that he let’s you know that you are in steady hands. When I was so upset, he was calm and levelheaded. I felt listened to.
I really liked the fact that I could rely on other lawyers in the office for anything and everything that came up.

Thank God for John Groseclose
I am an eighty-six year old woman, with very little knowledge of the law. After the death of my husband, I turned to a close friend, the son of my husband’s good friend. I allowed
him to take control of my finances, so he could buy property and build me a home. I thought it was my home, and I had agreed that upon my death I would will the land and property to
him. This was going to be my payment to him for taking care of me a couple times a week, for the rest of my life. I do not drive so I was dependent upon him to take me grocery
shopping or to the doctor.
I did change my mind, as I became frightened that they were changing their attitude towards me, and perhaps they were not going to look after me as I continued to age. I told them I wanted to move to Florida to be with my daughter, that I would like to sell the home and I would pay them a generous amount for their time and labor. They immediately withdrew all funds (thousands of dollars) minus one hundred from my bank account. They refused to give me my money, and I was shocked to learn that I only owned one third of my own property that I had paid one hundred percent for. I had signed papers that made us joint tenants with right of survivorship.
I can never thank John Groseclose an attorney with GS Jones Law Group, in Port Orchard, WA., enough. He was able to get a sizable amount of
my cash returned, and he made them see that it was in the best interest to sell or buy out my portion of the property. Without John’s help, these people would have just waited for
my death and then they would have taken everything. I would have had only my social security to live on. I now have an opportunity to get my own home near my daughter.
This may not be a proper kind of letter, but I am just an old lady with common language, but then John represents common people, God Bless you John. Miss Pearl

He got me my kids when i thought all hope was lost
John was recommended to me by a family friend when my divorce became increasingly ugly. My now ex wife disappeared with our 2 children and spread numerous lies about me to anyone who would listen. John and his associate Sara Humphries were extremely helpful and worked with me every step of the way. when things seemed to turn for the worst for me they offered me not only great legal representation but words of encouragement that really helped me thru it. In the end during my divorce trial I don’t think one thing went against me.
After a long hard fight and with the extreme patience and help of Mr Groseclose I was awarded full custody of my 2 children who very happily reside with me now. Words could never explain my gratitude, John continues to be my attorney as my ex wife continues to cause many problems but he still shows the same diligence and professionalism that he did when this matter was first brought to him. I consider him not only a friend at this point but a part of my family. He can be a bit eccentric at times but truthfully that’s because he is so brilliant. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is going thru what I did. John will fight hard for you and you will be pleased with the outcome.
- I recommend John Groseclose.
- I hired John 1-3 years ago.
- John handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
- I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

Got landlord-tenant problems? Go to GSJones!!
My roommate and I, two senior ladies, quietly shared an apartment in Port Orchard for four years. When we moved, we left the apartment structurally sound and professionally-clean. We were shocked the landlords sent us a move-out $1,500 bill for replacing the carpet plus other sundry charges…. due in two weeks! So, we asked GSJones landlord tenant attorney, Sara Humphries to represent us right away.
She was awesome. She got the apartment complex to replace the carpet themselves; they dropped all other charges and, refunded a small amount too. We were sooo relieved and happy. I know other tenants have landlord trouble.They need legal representation. I highly recommend G. S. Jones .They do fight for you! That I know for sure!!

Knowledgable, honest, creative, and comforting in a difficult time
Bob made my bankruptcy quick and painless. He was able to calm my fears and keep me on track after a messy divorce and difficult decision to file the bankruptcy. Bob was thoughtful, intelligent, and knowledgeable, and he found creative ways to deal with an unexpected snafu. Well after the paperwork was filed and the court appointments were complete, Bob continued to follow up with my case, making sure every detail was taken care of. I highly recommend Bob Garrison to anyone needing a skilled and considerate attorney.
