    • I recommend John Carney.

    I spoke with many different lawyers for representation in this matter and John Carney and his team were able to give me the most affordable price. Other lawyers offered to represent me for upwards of $1500- $2000 which was far above my means but John Carney was able to do it for $300. I received excellent representation and the process was a very quick and easy one. My warrants were vacated less than a week after I first contacted Mr. Carney and I did not even have to ever appear in court. I am grateful that he was able to provide such excellent representation at such an affordable price. I highly recommend Mr. Carney and his team of litigators to anyone in need to legal representation.

    John carney answered my phone call at 1030 pm the night before my court date, listened to everything I had to say, answered all my questions, and worked with me on a payment arrangement agreement. He went out of his way late at night and listened to what I had to say without rushing me off the phone. Was very informative and put my mind at ease. He made me feel comfortable and reassured me that everything is going to work out alright. I called over 15 lawyers and he was the only one willing to help! I highly recommend you give him a call! Best lawyer around!

    I began researching lawyers on google. After calling 3 other law offices, I called John. Immediately, he answered the phone. He was friendly, polite, humorous and the very first lawyer i had spoken to on the phone.
    Even though I couldnt pay a dime when we initially talked, he helped me through the process and even spoke to the detective in charge of my case. It is obvious, that this lawyer cares more about his clients than money!

    Overall, John Carney is a very nice man who helped me out in a jam. I KNOW I RECEIVED THE BEST LEGAL ADVICE IN NYC. THERE IS NO DOUBT, I WOULD RECOMMEND JOHN TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

    I would like to say that John J. Carney is the most profound lawyer that my family has came across. His fees was the lowest an the best on ( Avvo ) do to the magnitude and severe-ness of the case, with out him we would have been in a not so good situation. He helped us pull though. He was very helpful polite and straight to the point. From the first time we spoke, he had a great sense of humor with him. His compassion for guiding people in dark times is way much more than you will ever spend, that's why on behave of my family we will like to say thank you for your support an big heart. You are truly our angel.

    • I recommend John Carney.

    Well first let me start of by saying this Man is truly gifted in his craft. And second I called him at 8p and he answered promptly. He put my spirit at ease he answered my questions with the law and a strong heart. Mr.Carney Gave me a honestly fair price $2000 to start.When I called Another Lawyer in New York I received a automatic message and a callback that was given 3days after my initial inquiry. Just to find a min. Start rate of $5000-$10,000 (no actually number just an estimate). Mr .Carney Is Nothing Like the Rest.He know the law and he will defend you with all his might..Truly Have Put Me And my Young Son at Ease.Sincerely Call Mr.Carney If You Want A Lawyer Who Will Fight For You Until The End...He Made No Promises Other Than He Will Fight For Me Earnestly.

  6. Bogus Order of Protection violation claim by vindictive wife. Mr. Carney "does his thing!

    I was charged with a bogus violation of an Order of Protection. I was in police custody for 10 hrs., went through the "system" and got a public defender. After 2+ weeks of not hearing from him, I was even more distressed. I found Mr. Carney on avvo.com and answered his questionnaire and hit "enter" at 12:30 in the morning. His website shows that the office is open 24 hrs/day. Lo and behold, the phone rang at 12:33A.M. ! He put me at ease, was very confident the charge was bogus. The felony charge was taken off the table by the D.A.'s office, and I won't have to go to jail. Amazing and at a very reasonable fee.

    Right from the initial call to Mr. Carney I was surprised because of his honesty and constructive approach.
    Mr. Carney was also very kind and explained how much he knew and was willing to help me resolve my legal issue and up until this point I'm content to say that I am 100% satisfied with all of his work. I would also recommend Mr. Carney services to anyone who is need of good respectful and professional legal representation. He gets the job done right!!!

    I researched lawyers in New york state and found that John Carney was one of the top rated criminal lawyers in New york state. I called him at 5AM on Monday morning after some many futile attempts to other lawyers failed . He was the only one that took my call and handled my emergency in the most professional way. He agreed to handle my case and his legal fee was extremely reasonable. He has achieved fantastic results and i would highly recommend him for anyone who needs superb services.

    John Carney it a well respected attorney not only in N.Y.C. but in Western New York as well . He has earned his reputation as an exceptional Attorney by an impressive case success history . We were so impressed the attention he gave to our case , and the only time he couldn't answer our calls is when he was in court . His rates were very reasonable especially with the level of Legal Representation in which you are getting . I would highly recommend John Carney and his Law Firm , which i have on numerous occasions and will continue to do so .
