    • I recommend John Carney.

    Mr. Carney handled my friend's DWI case and I could not be happier with the results. Always responsive, very affordable, and excellent results. He is very knowledgeable on criminal law and does not just ask you to take the first plea offer but fights to get you the very best results. I would highly recommend him to anyone going through or knows someone going through a criminal case in New York City!!!

    • I recommend John Carney.

    Mr.Carney was very professional and reassuring when handling my case. He was always available on the phone when I needed him. He gave me a very good deal on my case and I felt safe having him as my lawyer. One of my close friends recommended this lawyer and I'm glad I took his advice.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    I was charged with very serious charges. I have never been so scared in my life. I called at 2 am and he answered. He is so helpful and knowledgable. I have never been so afraid in my life and he relieved me of my fears. My fate was in his caring hands. My phone calls and text were always answered. I am a good person and I made a huge mistake and needed serious help because I would not be able to be who I wanted to be if I had these charges on my name. I am very pleased with the pricing and He let me pay over time, because I didn't have it all at once. I would call John Carney a life saver.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    I was charged with a misdemeanor and was put in jail. My wife called John on a Sunday night and was able to get me out the following morning. John is very knowledgeable, easy to contact, and was able to put my mind at ease during this whole ordeal. John was able to reduce the charges to a violation and with nothing on my criminal record. John was able to provide me with updates and there would be no surprises in the court appearance. I would recommend John if you need an excellent Attorney.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    I was charged with a serious crime, and I called John Carney. He answered the phone himself and his fee was half the amount of what other lawyers wanted.He had my case dismissed. I don't know what i would do without him and he saved my job. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a lawyer who really cares about his clients. He is a very thoughtful and personable person. He is more than a a lawyer he is someone who will help you guide you through the times where you feel lost.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    Mr. Carney was recommended to me after my daughter got into some trouble. At first, I was skeptical of him as his pricing was below others and he assured me he would be able to help me and my child.I was very upset an didn't know what to do. My life was in total shambles. After meeting my Carney, he reassured me that he would be able to help my daughter and get her out of trouble. He eased my concerns. Needless to say, Mr. Carney was true to his word. He got my daughter to get reduced charges and her life is back on track.
    Thank you John Carney for be being a great help and a great lawyer. One who stands true to his words.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    Hired Mr. Carney to represent my daughter in a case that involved 2 misdemeanors. Working closely with my daughter, he was able to decrease the charges to a violation. Through our three month experience with him, I found him to be extraordinarily responsive; knowledgeable and fair. He set a flat fee for the case which was lower than another lawyer I consulted before hiring him.
    I feel very fortunate in hiring Mr. Carney and I would recommend him without reservation.

    • I recommend John Carney.
    • I hired John 1-6 months ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Very professional and worked with me during the handeling of my daughter's case. If needed would work with him again, but I hope that is not the case, at least not in my last endeavor. He was very through, compassionate and understanding. Results were better than expected. Thank you John, you gave me relief and helped my daughter get her life back on track

    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    We needed a lawyer fast, so we looked online and chose Mr. Carney. Mr. Carney is anything but your conventional lawyer, in fact we started getting worried because of all the promises he was making. Needless to say with some delay, he did get everything that we were promised done.
    If you need a dependable lawyer who knows his stuff Mr. Carney is a great choice.

    John carney is vey talented attorney. He is professional and trustworthy lawyer. I hired him and I won the case. He had dismissed my case without trial. I worked with couple of lawyers before I hired him. John never push me or force me for paying extra dollar. He charged me flat rate and it was very less than other lawers. I highly recommended tho lawyer if some one face at criminal charge....
