I am forever grateful for Jonathan Minkus and his assistance with my clemency petition. I found myself in an exceptionally troubling situation in which my legal status in the US was in jeopardy due to my criminal record. Per the advice of my immigration attorney, I engaged Mr. Minkus’s services in the hopes that he might be able to assist with a clemency petition. Mr. Minkus’s efforts toward my petition were remarkable. He was honest, thorough, and knowledgeable. Mr. Minkus worked with me directly and always made himself available for my questions and concerns. He put forth great care and attention towards getting to know me and the reasons why I was deserving of a pardon, and diligently and tirelessly worked for the success of my petition. I found him to be genuine, compassionate, and always felt supported and understood by him. I am overjoyed to share that my clemency petition was granted. Mr. Minkus has been such a blessing and I will be forever grateful for the second chance he helped to secure for me.

My wife and I have tried 3 times for her green card and was rejected three times because of some trouble she was accused of before she spoke English. I asked another Lawyer is there anything we can do and she referred us to Jonathan Minkus. We meet with Jonathan and said he might be able to help us but it would be difficult. Jonathan sure did what he said he could do. He had to fly to another state and negotiate our post conviction with prosecutors and judges he never meet before and 10 years after the false conviction that she was charged with. He worked a COMPLETE MIRICAL for my wife. With the change in Judgement that other Lawyers we hired over the years, who were never able to do anything but charge us money and she is now eligible for her Green Card. Thanks to Jonathon we can have a normal life without fears of deportation.

I had a very good experience working with Jonathan and he is a very kind person and very considerate. I would like to highly recommend someone that has same situation as me to go get help form Jonathan.

For 6 years my wife and I tried to receive our Green Card. After being declined 3 times, I asked our immigration lawyer is there anyway to correct some legal issues my wife fell into before she learned to speak English. We were referred to Jonathan and he has done miracles in clearing her name so we finally have a chance at receiving our Green Card and moving on with our life. All my wife wants to do is receive her Green card and go home to see her mother she has not seen in 15 years and now we have a real chance at doing that. We highly recommend Jonathan Minkus for any post conviction relief. Without him we had no chance at this. Jonathan Minkus will help because of his full knowledge of the law.

Jonathan is not only a brilliant attorney but he is a genuinely good human being. A petty misdemeanor mistake was holding back our immigration process. We came to him seeking options and hope. Upon meeting Jonathan during our initial consultation, his overwhelming knowledge, positivity and kindness were on full display and we immediately felt hope again. I know in my heart Jonathan deeply cares for his clients, he addressed every concern we had regarding our case, without over promising. Jonathan’s practice is so specialized there are no attorneys I contacted that even thought they could take on our case. If Jonathan is kind enough to work your case, believe that there is literally no one else who could get the job done! Jonathan over delivered and for that my family will forever be eternally grateful! Jonathan thank you for everything!

Jonathan was the only one willing to help my husband and me during a tough time. My husband was facing deportation and had no chance to beat his case unless Jonathan was able to vacate a previous conviction. Jonathan was persistent and genuinely advocated for my husband and family. Jonathan was able to vacate the 12-year-old conviction with DuPage County, giving us a fighting chance with immigration. Jonathan was the light at the end of our dark tunnel. We are incredibly pleased with his work and would recommend his services to anyone.

I hired Mr. Jonathan Minkus for a criminal drug conviction which I needed removed off of my record that I had pled guilty to over 7 years ago. Without going into too much detail about the difficulty of my case, I would just like to emphasize how difficult it is to convince a Judge 7 years after pleading guilty to drop a charge. Well, Jonathan made it happen. As other reviewers have said, he is not the cheapest lawyer around. But guess what? I hired a cheap lawyer when I got the conviction and was never told how negatively it would affect my future (believe me, the negatives were life-changing). Years later Jonathan had to step in to fix it. Don’t waste your money somewhere else. Jonathan works hard to beat your case, is always available when you have questions or concerns, and honestly is one of the smoothest talkers I’ve met (reality check: even judges like to be stroked). I highly recommend Jonathan to anyone who has gotten into trouble and would like a way out. Jonathan see’s the good in you and understands you made a mistake and carefully makes the prosecution/judge see the same. I’ve literally given his number to all of my friends and family and they know that if they’re ever in trouble, Jonathan is their man to call. I advise you to do the same. Before I hired Jonathan, I read some of his reviews and thought, all of this seems too good to be true. Well, let me tell you folks, it’s true, he’s the real deal, and I can go on and on raving about him and it still wouldn’t be enough for what he’s done for me. Thanks for everything Jonathan. Seriously, if you’re reading this and are looking for a lawyer, Jonathan Minkus is your man!

I was wrongfully advised by an immigration lawyer to expunge my criminal record that consisted of a drug related charge in order to apply for residency. My wife and I quickly found out this was not true and were referred by two different lawyers (who did not know one another) to contact Mr. Minkus. We were without hope and filled with stress.

I almost never write reviews and when Mr. Minkus just finished representing my brother and I looked for him online I felt like I had to write this. Yes, he is not the cheapest lawyer around but he did exactly what he said he would do. My brother was being deported and we were sent to Mr. Minkus to try and fix his criminal record.

I hired Mr. Minkus a month ago after a convoluted incident that left me with criminal trespass and criminal damage to property, possibly pending a burglary charge. The confessions I had written and the police notes that were taken while I was in custody painted a very bad portrait of me and the system likely would have given me a severe sentence if not for
