    I was referred to the Law Office of John E. Macdonald through a pro bono referral program to remove the conditions on my conditional green card. John Macdonald was the only attorney gracious enough to respond and take on my case. He was patient and understanding when I met him and talked about my case. He colleague, Elisha Morris, handled my case and now, I have a 10 year permanent green card. John and Elisha fought for me until I got the results I wanted. They were both extremely nice and understanding. Elisha handled my case professionally and always communicated with me to keep me updated. I highly recommend the Law Office of John Macdonald.

    After looking around for a lawyer to have a post conviction relief petition filed I had no luck until I came across John MacDonald who not only knew exactly my situation, he had gone through process before and could guarantee results. Thank you John you saved my life...

    Best lawyer I have ever dealt with.Successfully defended the case of my wife who was falsely framed with the shoplifting charges.He got the case dismissed on the pretrial.Very soft spoken and very responsive.I recommend him to everybody.Don't get irritated no matters how many times you ask the same question.

    John was professional and compassionate throughout this horrendous experience. He is an expert in law able to point to specific cases in seconds when making a point on objection or point of law. He successfully defended my grandson against a heinous false accusation giving him back his life, liberty and the ability to raise, nurture and love his two small children.
