I recently got pulled over for driving on a suspended license after my 2nd OUI. The mandatory penalty for this is 60 days in jail. This is mandatory, no getting around it. I truly didn't feel like I was a threat to society so instead of letting the state take away 2 months of my life, I decided to fight it. I interviewed 3 lawyers so I could see who was the most qualified and motivated to fight this with me. John Seed made the biggest impression with me because of his past history as a DA and because he didn't sugar coat anything.. 'Most lawyers will'. Throughout the whole process he was very patient explaining everything to me in simple terms that I could understand and he always gave me multiple options on how we wanted to move forward with the case. John didn't quit or try and take the easy road, even after I had paid him in full. He explored EVERY last option we had and when everything was all said and done, my charges got reduced and I stayed out of jail. This had never been done in Massachusetts before and I am certain I would not of had this result with another lawyer. His ability to communicate with the judge and the da without stepping on any toes is something of an art form and nothing short of brilliant. I feel very grateful and fortunate to have had John Seed and my lawyer.
i'd like to take a moment and thank attorney John Seed
I recently found myself having to answer to multiple felonies and misdemeanors in the Brighton District Court
years of incarceration weren't out of the question,
as if that wasn't enough' I also found myself simultaneously facing a driving after third DUI suspension in Plymouth District Court
which all on its own carries a 60 day mandatory sentence
I was in serious legal trouble
it seemed that real jail-time was inevitable for me
*however, upon meeting attorney john seed I knew instantly that I was in a brilliant attorneys full professional care and consideration
at first site I knew he would do an amazing job for me..
AND THAT HE DID! at every turn John proved himself an amazing legal strategist
John's legal expertise and inner understandings of the courts were instantly evident, in addition this man was overflowing with compassion for me and my family.
John genuinely understood my concerns and never wavered from bringing unparalleled professionalism, from the very beginning to my cases final favorable conclusions
John is clearly a good honest attorney
his firms hiring rates are amazingly within reach,
even someone such as myself struggling financially without a license could afford this amazing firm,
I was so relieved to have John around throughout these whole proceedings
he spared no effort to make sure no harm would come to me (and it didn't)
John's expertise compassion and understanding is truly second to none
thank you John
Evan and family
John is a great guy, knows his stuff, and is an expert in his field. Very responsive. He makes you feel comfortable and shows that he cares about you.
Mr. Seed's Knowledge, respectability, patience and helpfulness is the reason I got through this tough situation. He was always there whenever I had a question or a doubt, very professional inside the courtroom and sympathetic to my needs and my story. At no time did he look down on my situation and never judged me, he defended me to the best of his ability. I would highly recommend him in any situation.
John Seed is not only a great attorney, he's a great guy. He's down to earth and cares about what is going on with you and not just in the courtroom. I'm an addict who has a pretty lengthy record. I had been clean for about 4 years when I relapsed. I found myself again facing charges this time trafficking and smuggling heroin. Not was I facing more charges but I had a lot more to lose. Married with two kids and a mortgage I was worried that I might have just broken my family up for good. I called every attorney in the greater Boston area. They all said the same thing, I was looking at alot of time and it was gonna cost me to the tune of ten grand. I was not very optimistic but I made one last call and it was to John. I got his voicemail and it said I will get back to you some times within moments so I hung up thinking yeah right. A minute later he called back and for the first time since I was arrested I felt like there might be a chance. I just walked out of court the other day with 6 months of unsupervised probation. If I come back and prove after 6 months that I've stayed clean and on the right track all charges will be dropped. So if you feel like there is no hope don't make the same mistake I did and have John be your last call, make sure he's your first. Thanks again John.
I hired attorney Seed after I was arrested for a dui. Being the first time that I had been arrested, you can imagine how nervous and hopeless I felt. John Seed took on my case with great confidence and gave me peace of mind throughout the trial process. Three months after my arrest, we went to trial and won! Attorney Seed immediately had my license reinstated. I can not thank him enough for the time that he put towards my case and for getting a not guilty verdict . I would recommend attorney John Seed to anyone who is having legal issues.
It was clear from the start that John would be my choice in representation for DUI. The case was a complicated one, and required much back-and-forth between him and I. He always made himself available to answer questions, finding time weeknights and weekends to discuss the details of my case.
Above all, it was John's expertise that stood out. He brings to the table what many other DUI lawyers cannot - a true understanding of both sides of the law. This is what allowed us to strategize appropriately, and achieve the result we both wanted.
Thank you John, for all of the extra time and effort put in!
My family attorney, having known and tried cases against John Seed, referred me to him as someone he deemed most qualified to help me as I faced the possibility of being charged with a felony for having a prohibited item in my checked bag at a TSA inspection point. My first meeting with John confirmed that my family attorney’s referral had genuinely been in my best interest; I found John to be a careful and patient listener, who was easily accessible by text and by phone, and who kept me well-informed throughout every step of the process. Personable and with a great sense of humor, John helped me to feel relaxed in a very stressful situation. As a former prosecutor, he clearly enjoys the respect of those involved in all aspects of law enforcement, as well as access and insight into how the legal process works behind the scenes. Thanks to John’s understanding of the most appropriate way to approach my problem, I was spared from a felony charge that might have been very damaging to my life and career. As someone who grew up the son of a trial lawyer, I can especially appreciate John’s extraordinary degree of competence. If you need a lawyer, you will not find a better one than John Seed.
I can not recommend Attorney John Seed highly enough. This is the Attorney you want. I did not know John before I needed an Attorney, but I wish I had. The Highlights:
* Attorney Seed fought for and achieved a NOT GUILTY verdict on all Criminal Charges, including an OUI Charge. Someone you can TRUST to fight for you and do what is in your best interest.
*Throughout the 6 month process John always kept me informed of the process, and explained all the steps up to and including Trial.
*Always a fast response from John. Whether it be a call, email or text, John was always quick to respond to a question I had. I first contacted him on a Sunday afternoon, I heard back within an hour.
* He has a good relationship with the Judges, Prosecutors, and Law Enforcement. It was clear he was respected within the courtroom.
*Upfront and honest about his pricing from the very beginning. Worth every penny.
* Just a good guy. It is difficult picking an Attorney blindly, I’ve been there. You will be in good hands with John.
Again I can not reccomend John highly enough. Feel free to ask John for my number if you would like to speak to someone who has been through the process with John.
Thank you John!
Earlier this month, I had the misfortune of being arrested for a first OUI offense. Although I had made some bad choices the night of my arrest, I am relieved to say that I made the right choice in calling John Seed.
Within an hour of leaving John a message the day following my arrest, he texted me back to let me know he had gotten my message and that he would be reaching out later that day. His attentiveness blew me away!
During that first phone call and during every call and meeting thereafter, John was very thorough in explaining what options I had, what his recommendations were, and ultimately what our strategy was going to be moving forward. He did a wonderful job of making my parents and I feel comfortable and at ease. Not once did John make me feel like "the bad guy."
With John by my side, I finished all of my appearances in court within four days of my arrest, and I now have a game plan for putting all of this behind me.
I am forever grateful to John! His knowledge and expertise of the law and the courts gave me an edge I would not have had otherwise. His sincere desire to help me so that my case had the best possible outcome was also apparent. This man does not mess around, and he WILL get the job done.
If you're unsure of who to call, don't hesitate to call John! You won't be sorry you did -- I sure as heck am not!
Thank you John!!!!
