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!!!!
I had no idea where to go or what to do. John Seed took care of everything. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and got methe end result I was looking for.
We recently had an unfortunate situation where we needed a lawyer for our child. We contacted John on a weekend and was surprised when he returned our call soon afterwards. After John gathered all the information from us, he advised us of all our options. John is extremely knowledgeable, discussing each and every option in detail with us and the possible outcome for each one. He was extremely patient with our endless questions and never rushed his explanations. John expedited things quickly and efficiently. Not once did he ever give us the feeling that he was steering or pressuring us towards unnecessary services that would require additional output of a larger fee for him. John is the opposite of all the negativity surrounding most attorneys. We would not hesitate a moment recommending John to anyone looking for a great lawyer. We were so fortunate to have had John by our side during our entire ordeal.
John was great! He was honest about what the outcome could have been, he was confident and knowledgable. John answered every text/ call. He was flexible with me and my situation. I have no complaints because he was amazing. We won the case 100% he is a great attorney.
Now many people say this, but I faced a false allegation. I really did. It was a movie scenario. Minding my business walking down the street...
I'd compare it to the movie Detour (1945) or The Next Three Days (Russell Crowe).
Let me tell ya, John crushed it.
As a person who has exited this ridiculous state of injustice--yes, goodbye--I will tell you this: accept no substitute. John is well-respected; a great guy in and out of court; and the most responsive, caring and effective attorney you could hope for.
John saw right through to the truth. His background as a prosecutor was priceless.
I have worked with many lawyers on non-criminal matters, and they operate very unlike John, even the best of them. John is a Saint, always shining, on your side.
John Seed was quick react to give me every angle of the possible scenarios of the outcome of the case and give me options of my choice of how to take action to my situation and everything proved to be a perfect ending to my case and kept me informed of everything going on and to get a not guilty verdict for me which was definitely appreciate and great work by him.
Thank you , John seed
Writing this review is one of the most difficult things I've had to do. Words cant explain the man, attorney and friend that John is. John was first appointed to me as a public defender 4 years ago. I at that time was a career heroin addict and criminal. Not many people knowing my past had really been willing to listen or help me. John Seed is not that man! I was in danger. My life was a mess and I had no direction. John defended me on my cases, got me released, but showed concern about my well being. He insisted I try to get help, however, I wasn't ready! Although I struggled to keep his expectations, I knew in my heart John and I were not finished. Two years later, still active in my addiction, 90 pounds lighter, and my life crumbling around me, John and I met again in the holding cells. Although he was not my attorney that day, I told him how my life was a mess and, as usual, the courts were not willing to listen to my plea. He handed me his card and, with that million dollar smile, he said "call me!". Soon after we were talking about the severity of my situation, he took my case pro-bono. I was on the run now, and I had made it clear to John that I was not going back to jail. For the next year, I went through a half-way house, a sober-house, and built a life. John was there every step of the way; from encouraging words to legal direction. My cases were extensive; warrants in 3 different counties with the possibility of up to 8 years in prison. I walked in clean and sober, with my wife and kids back in my life, and John by my side. I knew he was going to fight for me as hard as he saw me fight for myself! I walked out of courtroom after courtroom those three days knowing how far I have come thanks to John. I am now home with my wife and kid, still sober. So to write a review on this attorney is selling him short! He is a friend, a trusted adviser, and just one hell of a man! I wouldn't be here today without you John! If you go through life without meeting this man, it's truly been your loss. If you need an attorney to represent you with honesty, integrity, and the balls to do what's right, CALL JOHN SEED!
