Gilroy, California Attorneys at Law
Our Gilroy, California law firm of Gonzalez & Jones, APC is a community-oriented, family-based legal team providing skilled and aggressive personal injury and criminal defense representation. We always do what is best for our client, whether through artful and creative negotiation or powerful and aggressive litigation.
We are a unique, tightly-knit family firm. Attorney Milton Gonzalez has practiced in Gilroy as a counselor and litigator since 1981. Attorney Zoi Jones, Milton’s daughter, brings a modern dynamic, along with the same strength of commitment and dedication as her father. The rest of our family keeps the firm running efficiently and smoothly and works closely with clients to deliver high-quality, client-service oriented legal services. Everyone at the firm has deep roots in Gilroy. We are all dedicated to serving and protecting our clients and to making our community the best it can possibly be.
Milton F. Gonzalez was born and raised in Gilroy. He graduated from Saint Mary Parochial School and Gilroy High School. Milton is well-known in the community and has helped many clients through very difficult situations. With a career spanning more than 30 years in Northern and Southern California, Milton thrives on developing assertive and strategic solutions that meet his clients’ needs and goals.
Milton’s extensive criminal and civil trial experience spans all levels of California state and federal courts. He brings to his practice a logical, problem-solving approach, keen attention to detail, and a passion for protecting his clients’ rights. Milton listens to his clients and is strongly protective of them. He worked for ten years as a Conflicts Attorney for Santa Clara County, is a certified pro tem judge, and served as a pro tem judge for the Santa Clara County Superior Court. Milton is fluent in Spanish and English.
Milton’s clients spare no superlatives in describing him, including “exceptional.” His passion and fierce determination in achieving the best result impress clients. They also characterize him as caring, reassuring, and compassionate. Clients give him high marks across the board, but especially appreciate that he communicates directly and responds promptly when clients make inquiries. Most importantly of all, Milton puts his clients at ease and enables them to go about their lives comfortably while he handles the case.
As patriarch of the family, Milton guides everyone. His law partner and daughter Zoi lovingly describes him as “seriously one of a kind.” Milton and his wife Donna — the Office Manager — set up the law firm when Milton was just out of law school. They have been a stalwart team through the years, both in business and in their personal lives. There is no greater testament to their success as professionals and parents than the fact that their daughters Zoi and Madison and son-in-law Kyle are now part of the family business.
When not defending his clients’ rights, Milton enjoys glamping, boating, fishing, horseback riding, gardening, and cooking.
For more than 30 years, Milton and the whole family have taken two vacations every year, one to Lake Don Pedro and the other to Shasta Lake. This family not only works very well together — they relax and spend real family time together too. That tells you everything you need to know about how strong their family ties are.

Zoi A. Jones recognizes that a close working relationship between attorney and client is essential to providing the highest quality legal services. An enthusiastic and successful litigator, Zoi zealously pursues her clients’ best interests in and out of the courtroom. Her diligent preparation and dedication to providing the exceptional levels of service enable her to achieve the best possible outcomes for her clients.
Her clients describe Zoi as “remarkable.” She truly cares about them as individuals and has compassion for her clients and their families. Zoi also respects and supports her clients. She works hard to get the best results, even going above and beyond what’s necessary to scrutinize medical bills and obtain reductions. Because of that, more money goes into her clients’ pockets.
Direct communication with her clients is important to Zoi. Unlike in larger firms, where clients rarely talk directly with the lawyer, Zoi maintains close contact with all her clients. Her caring manner and reassurance always put clients at ease, even amid the difficult circumstances they face.
Zoi grew up in Gilroy, California, the garlic capital of the world. She is proud of her community involvement, which began when she was 16. Zoi started by directing theater for Rucker Elementary School. Then she started a theater program for South Valley Middle School, Solorsano Middle School, and Brownell Middle School. Zoi also directed theater for Spring Grove School in Hollister and was the Director of College for Kids at Gavilan College.
Zoi is proudly married to a former U.S. Marine, who keeps the firm’s IT systems up and running. Outside the office, Zoi and her husband Kyle enjoy camping, horseback riding, just being outdoors, and — most of all — spending time with their son and family.
Zoi is a member of Consumer Attorneys of California.
