Jon H. Kurland

As an attorney, I fully understand how unexpected circumstances can drastically alter your life. My father, who was 52, passed away while I was a freshman in college leaving a widow who was a homemaker and three sons. I was the oldest with two brothers 16 and 10 years old. From that moment on, I had to apply myself as never before, working my way through both college and law school. That single, devastating and wholly unanticipated event changed our family and my life forever. One of the reasons I chose to become an attorney was to help people who were experiencing life altering events. Loss of a job, serious illness or divorce impacts many of my clients both emotionally as well as financially. I am motivated by my own personal history and for that reason I take great pride in assisting people. My clients come to see me and rely upon me to solve whatever legal problem they have. Some are easy to resolve while others are more complex. It is essential that my clients understand what I am doing for them and why I have suggested a specific course of action. I truly care for my clients because I understand how life can throw you a curve when you least expect it. If you need an attorney, I hope you will consider Kurland & Grossman.
