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....

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. I had a horrible experience with John Carney after I hired him in May 2014. He is rude and unprofessional, often rambling on about unrelated offensive topics despite repeatedly asking him to stay focused on my case. When I finally did get some legal advice out of him, it was bad advice. He showed that he was unfamiliar with the facts and status of my case. When I hired a different attorney (who, within minutes, was able to learn about my case, talk to the DA, and recommend a positive outcome that Carney had never even mentioned), Carney bad-mouthed him to me and told me I'm crazy and dumb.
He quoted a flat fee for my case and then (successfully) tried to shake me down for more, by harassing my father despite numerous requests to stop. He charged my father's credit card after being told explicitly that charge was unauthorized, and without ever sending an hourly/itemized bill. He spent more time and effort convincing the credit card company to reverse the chargeback than he ever did on my case.
Mr. Carney is not only the best attorney I've ever known, but also provided the highest level of customer service of any business I've ever dealt with. He was patient and explained everything, took the time to understand me and my situation. He called me within minutes of my inquiry in the evening and I was immediately confident I had the best. He got my marijuana possession case dismissed in one day, and his fees were much less than his competition. Thanks to him and his team for making sure I stayed out of jail and avoided thousands of dollars in fines and travel expenses. I highly recommend him. Thank you Mr. Carney for saving me from all the problems that I could have been stuck with.
Mr.Carney took care of my case with little to no effort. I was charged with a 2nd degree felony for burglary on a Friday, spoke with Mr.Carney Sunday and on Tuesday morning with his work was brought down to a misdemeanor and two days community service. I recommend him to anyone with no time to spare. Thank you for all your assistance.
A few months ago I was arrested for three misdemeanors and the incident seriously jeopardized my career. Thankfully I found John Carney through this site. John got all the charges dismissed and sealed (the best result possible) and did so at a fraction of the cost that other lawyers offered. I literally could not have asked for a better result and a more responsive attorney. I highly recommend anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney to chose John Carney.
John Carney is a fantastic lawyer. Very straight forward, to the point and most importantly gets results. He had my case dismissed and sealed at the desk appearance. He understands that no one wants to find themselves in a legal predicament and does everything to help you through it. He always answered my calls and questions promptly, even after the case. I highly recommend John!
Mr. Carney and his team of lawyers helped me get misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges acd'd and sealed in the same day. I was literally in and out of the court room in 15 minutes. Excellent people, excellent results.
John is a great lawyer. He was my lawyer for a case which started at the end of summer and was settled recently. He was able to get my case dismissed and did not require any community service or probation period. He was available at any time and answered all my questions. Very smart man and would highly recommend if you want your case to be taken care of.
John is a true professional and was a godsend for me and my family personally. He resolved truly all of my legal concerns (minor arrest but a conviction would have ruined my career completely) and was available to me anytime throughout the process. He is a very skilled lawyer with years of experience and connections and New York know how. I highly recommend him to all! Thanks again John!
