    more than satisfied client

    John MacDonald delivered on everything he said he would do for me from the second we contacted him by phone to the first time we walked in his office and rite through the entirety of my hearings and court dates. John is an exceptional professional who is very well respected by all his peers and I would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone. Thank you John for all your hard work and helping me through my difficult time.

    Post-Conviction Relief Success

    John was successfully able to vacate, dismiss, and expunge my case 1.5 years early via post-conviction relief. I had a Misdemeanor on my record, originally a Felony charge, that was preventing me from entering the workforce. John came up with a legitimate plan with my father and I, gathered all the details and information needed from me, and executed the plan flawlessly. With the odds against us, he came out with a huge victory that changed my life and allowed me to start a career. In fact, my original lawyers on the case both told me it was too early to do anything. John explained the post-conviction relief process to me and said that there was something we could do about it.

    John is confident, well-spoken, organized, and communicates very well with his clients. He always got back to me in a timely manner and kept me informed of the situation. It is clear that John is a true professional by his words, but more importantly by his actions. From day one, he was honest with me about all potential outcomes. Additionally, he answered every question my father and I had (we had many questions for him).

    There is no guarantee for your case with any lawyer you choose, however; you want to know that your lawyer is doing everything they can for the best possible outcome. John really does work hard to do everything he can to get the best outcome for his clients. I highly recommend John MacDonald for any post-conviction relief matter as you will be in the hands of a great lawyer with 20+ years of experience.

    Great Lawyer

    John was a great guy to deal with. If you looking to vacate your case or want an amazing criminal lawyer you should definitely give John a call. Everything about him is direct and straight-forward. I was caught in a bind with ICE (immigration) and I sort out John for assistance. Luckily before my apprehension with ICE I retained him as a lawyer. At first I was not sure what lawyer I should select but my gut feeling told me to select John McDonald out of all the candidates I was looking for. If it wasn't for the reviews and his assistant assuring me that John is really good at what he does I probably wouldn't have selected him. To make a long story short, My sister worked with John on my case as I was in ICE custody. John kept her and my family informed with my situation. ICE custody is not a place where no one deserves to be in but in order to fight and be with your family...

    The Law Office of John E. Macdonald

    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.

    The Hardest Working Lawyer in RI

    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.
