Client Testimonials

"I would recommend JB Dath Law to anyone expecting results. Jonathan took on my case in the middle of a custody hearing, and completely turned around the outcome of my case. With the fate of the custody of my son on the line, he worked around the clock to bring himself up to speed on my trial, and came into the courtroom ready to go. Not only did he stop things from spiraling out of control, but he ended up securing me full physical and legal custody of my child. He continues to provide top notch services, and his knowledge of the courts and the systems is second to none in Yolo County. The only complaint I have is that I didn't retain his services from day one!"


"If you are looking for strong, analytical support in handling complicated matters pertaining to divorce, I highly recommend you add Jonathan Dath to your team. Jonathan's expertise in Family Law combined with his excellent UC Davis MBA business education enable him to see and clearly communicate strategies to maximize the protection of one's hard earned assets. Having Jonathan's knowledge,skills and experience on your side is a smart investment."
