After speaking with John during a consultation, we were looking forward to partnering with him for a few contracts we needed either created or reviewed. He requires you to pay him upfront, which we did. During the consultation, we expressed that two specific contracts had a short deadline of the end of the week that we needed to meet. He said he would be able to do that, which is another reason we went with him, as several other firms were backed up for 2-3 weeks.Once we paid, same day (MONDAY).He sent a draft of one contract over within 24 hours (TUESDAY) and asked us to review and let him know of any changes needing made or any items we feel need to be added.We responded to him WEDNESDAY morning/afternoon.THURSDAY evening comes around and we had not received any communication, which normally is fine, but with our deadlines we expressed to him, we reached out to ensure he received the emails we sent.By FRIDAY evening we still did not receive any communication back from him and so we called to make sure everything was ok, as that was our deadline day. After one of his secretary's tried to push us off and schedule us a meeting with him on Monday, he finally was able to get on the phone. He said he had food poisoning on Wednesday and Thursday was a catch up day, so he would have something by late that night.The entire weekend passes by and we received nothing.MONDAY (a week after we started this process), we emailed him asking politely for more communication and a firm deadline on when we will be receiving the first final contract. NO RESPONSE.TUESDAY evening, we called his office again and another one of his secretary's scheduled a phone meeting with us for Wednesday morning at 10am.WEDNESDAY, he MISSES the meeting. We called asking if he was going to make the call 5 minutes after the start time and they said he would. 20 minutes waiting on the call for our scheduled meeting and NOTHING.At this point, with an upfront deadline being totally missed, and no communication after the first draft sent, and him making it very obvious he has no respect for anyone's time, we decided that he wasn't the type of business we need to work with. We asked for a refund, as nothing was completed, and the contract draft he initially sent over even had our company's name spelled wrong and other spelling errors.Up to this date, we have had NO communication back from him. BE AWARE!! We should have listened to the other 1-star review that was written on Google and had the same issue.

I have known John for a few years now and always consult him on all legal matters. He is an outstanding lawyer with great knowledge and expertise when it comes to law. He has always shown true care and genuine interest in my matters while providing most sincere and appropriate advice. I am thankful to him beyond words and feel at peace knowing that hes got my back no matter what. Thank you John!

Gave him a shot over a year ago after seeing many good reviews, unfortunately I paid him $600 for business research i never recieved. He assured me I would receive the information requested every time I got ahold of him and that his work was already complete that he just needed to send it and ultimately he faded away with out providing what was promised.

John assisted me with a sizable collection matter and successfully recovered my money promptly with principal and interest. He did a great job drafting, negotiating and collecting the funds in a matter of weeks without escalating the matter into litigation. Not only did he pay attention to every detail, he promptly responded to phone calls and emails. I highly recommend John his firm.

John did a great job at addressing all our needs. He was very quick with return calls and emails. He was quickly to get back the services that we requested. He was also very knowledgeable with his advice. I look forward to continuing our relationship in the future. This is a firm that I am sure we will have a great relationship with for many years. The main thing that really sticks out to me is as a business owner is customer service and John was on top of that for us. You will enjoy working with him.Chris
