In 2016, C.W. was charged in federal court with being a member of a drug conspiracy distributing pills. Her recommended sentence was 30-37 months. The sentence Attorney David Chontos was able to obtain was 25 months.
“In the beginning I was difficult to deal with and at sometimes I felt you weren’t working in my favor, but, as I sit back and reflect, I can honestly say you did a good job and I’m forever thankful for your service.”
As it became evident that I was going to need a divorce attorney, I asked a friend who she had used. She replied Jennifer Chontos. I called and made a appointment with Jennifer. She asked questions and listened to me. Then Jennifer made some suggestions. Jennifer explained how the process should work and what to expect. Jennifer kept the process moving forward and respected what I had to stay. Jennifer takes her clients best interests to heart. I was very pleased with the service I got from Jennifer. I will use her for future needs.
I first came to Jennifer not long after my spouse and I separated. I was terrified and desperate, but soon found I was in very capable hands. From the beginning, Jennifer handled my case efficiently, compassionately, and patiently. In court, she was amazing, and she was able to get me a much better settlement than I would ever have dreamed possible. My case dragged out over several years; however, Jennifer was fair with her billing and indeed, suggested several ways to reduce the amount I needed to spend to complete the divorce. She is an excellent lawyer, very fair, and I would highly recommend her to anyone facing a divorce, or even just a separation.
It is my continued pleasure to work with Jennifer Chontos from Chontos & Chontos, I retained Jennifer 3 years ago during a separation to try to work things out with my spouse, unfortunately it has escalated and now is a custody, support and legal battle. Jennifer has been so compassionate yet forthright in how she is handling my case she lets me know cost factors and how we should proceed. Jennifer is not only professional in her mannerism and in her timely response to email, hearings and questions but she also is well worth the cost. Jennifer has fought hard and tirelessly for my son and myself in this very long destructive battle and I know that I am not just a client I am also someone that she truly feels for. If you want someone that doesn’t back down, is extremely knowledgeable, diligent, extensive in her research and fights for truth and Justice then she is the one.
I have 100% faith in Jennifer and the process that Justice will be served!!

Attorney Jennifer Chontos was a calm and common-sense presence during the most difficult time of my life. She took the time to listen to my unique divorce case, which also included an amended marriage settlement agreement, child custody agreement, and child support consent. Throughout the entire process, Jennifer was compassionate, knowledgeable, and readily available. I could always count on being able to get in touch with her when I had questions regarding my case. I am very grateful for her help, and I highly recommend her for anyone seeking an experienced, competent and caring divorce/domestic relations attorney.
During an extremely stressful time, Jennifer was my angel in disguise. The first time we spoke, I knew I was in good hands. Jennifer is the best of the best! She is knowledgeable and always offers the best advice and guidance her to clients, she will never lead you wrong. Throughout a year and a half, I can honestly say I truly admire her on a personal and professional level.
Jennifer truly works for you and your case, she cares about her clients. I’ve witnessed her face everything from the “Bull-Dog Attorney” to another respectable Attorney and no matter what, she remained professional, and carried herself with class, yet had no hesitation being firm and bold when she needed to. She is knowledgeable and respectable in the courtroom. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, even with my complex case. She communicated what I needed to do and followed up shortly after to see if she could be of any further assistance. She is On a few occasions , it was apparent that she was more prepared that my ex’s lawyer.
I’m beyond thankful for her continuous support, encouragement and patience during a difficult process and time in my life, and thanks to Jenifer I was able to close a terrible chapter in my life, and I’m freely and happily starting an amazing new chapter. I feel honored to have met her, and I feel honored that she represented me.
Jennifer Chontos is fantastic attorney. I previously spent thousands of dollars and over 2 years from another attorney trying to get a divorce but, nothing was done! Nothing! A friend recommended Jennifer. Jennifer was very prompt and efficient. She was in constant communication with me. She gave me “tasks to complete” and followed up to be sure I completed them. During this process she even recommend other attorneys to help with other issues, such as a new will and regaining possession of personal property. These attorneys were also great. Her prices are very reasonable. Her guidance through this painful process was priceless. She got the matter completed in a timely manner. I believe this divorce was too complicated for the first attorney that I hired, but his ego stood in the way to help me. Jennifer was up for the challenge.
I first came to Jennifer in 2014 with an issue that required sound expertise. Jennifer is attentive, she listens to what you have going on and is able to quickly formulate an actionable plan. Jennifer is empathetic, accommodating, decisive, and astute; everything that an attorney should be, and yet more. She is confident, not cocky; perceptive, yet unassuming. Jennifer is fair, reasonable, and genuine; she doesn’t sugar coat anything, she says what needs to be said. Jennifer’s candid and honest conduct is highly desirable when one is seeking legal counsel.
I am sure Jennifer Chontos had no idea what she was getting herself into when I first hired her. Our case was not an easy one, and became very frustrating at times. Jennifer never gave up. She saw the truth and worked her hardest to expose the lies. Jennifer was not just working for a paycheck, she was working to really help me. She helped me keep a level head and kept me focused on the end goal. She did not allow me to get upset if things didn’t go in our favor at times. In the end, Jennifer helped me achieve exactly what I set out to do. I am forever grateful to have met her and for her services. She has changed my life in more ways than she knows.
We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Roller Chontos on two separate occasions. In both instances, we appreciated her work ethic, integrity, and honesty along with her flexibility to honor our wishes and schedules. She is a top-notch lawyer, and a real team player. We plan to enlist her services again, if ever the need arises. She is one of the best in her field.

I knew right away Jennifer Chontos was the right person to represent me. She answered all my questions and educated me on the possible outcomes of my case. She kept me informed and up to date on my case which made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. She fought hard and was able to reach the best outcome.
I want to thank you for services rendered. I felt very confident of your knowledge of the laws pertaining to my rights as a spouse recently separated from her husband. You accomplished what I wanted and did it without confusion or hard feelings. I would highly recommend you to anyone in need of these services. Thank you again.
I want to express my sincere thanks to Chontos and Chontos for all their help and support with my case. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you for your candor, honesty, and opinion with my situation. It was all greatly appreciated. I will definitely recommend your firm to anyone that may need it.
Jennifer Chontos has been representing me with various legal issues for over 10 years.
Jennifer has very unique gift of being able to address any issue in the most professional manner while adding a personal touch that just makes you feel very comforting during your stressful times.
I have had a variety of legal issues to overcome and Jennifer has always been able to guide me through with her patience, knowledge and the ability to truly understand what her clients want and need.
I have even recommended several friends and coworkers to Jennifer over the years and they ALL have come to me afterwards to thank me. You absolutely won’t go wrong selecting Jennifer Chontos to represent you with your legal issues.
I want to thank you for your timely and most professional attention to our daughter’s legal needs over these last few weeks. It has been a trying time for her I am sure, and I am also sure that your representation has contributed to making it manageable for her.
Attorney Jennifer Chontos has provided great legal services with outstanding results in both of my divorces. She has gone above and beyond in my complicated legal situations.
Very compassionate and understanding, also very tough in her legal commitment to get the job done. Chontos & Chontos has also provided very good legal advice in other areas. They come very highly recommended in my opinion and I would definitely use their services with any other legal matters that may come along.
When I first signed on with Jennifer at Chontos and Chontos, neither of us knew we were in for a ride that was going to redefine high-conflict. But through it all, Jennifer has always given me the sort of attention that makes me feel I’m her only client, giving me as much time as I’ve needed and always glad to go a few extra miles for me. Over the years, Jennifer has taught me that the strongest position isn’t one of getting even but of being fair and reasonable, and time and again, my kids and I have reaped the many benefits of her level-headed approach — which I’ve begun working to emulate in my personal life. I’ve referred friends to Jennifer and will continue to do so, and really, that’s the highest praise I can heap on anyone.

Our family has had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Chontos on a number of occasions. Jennifer is a knowledgeable, conscientious and responsive attorney. One of the things we particularly like about working with Jennifer is that she takes the time to understand our needs and gives us options without resorting to legalese or jargon. We can’t say enough good things about Jennifer and recommend her highly.
The Kelly Family
I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on two separate occasions. The initial meeting was a revision of wills, POA’s, and medical directives for both my husband and me. The second, was following the death of my father. I met again with Jennifer to process his will and estate. On both occasions, she was knowledgeable, efficient, and responded quickly to all questions and concerns. Attorney Chontos was a pleasure to work with, and I would do it again.
