Mr. Cromwell was such a pleasure to work with. He made sure that I knew and understood everything that was going on with my case. Whenever I had a question, I didn't feel uncomfortable about bringing it to his attention. He made sure I was completely prepared by spending a huge amount of time with me going over the facts of the case and even my background and childhood information. He even worked after hours to talk about the case over the phone. John really cared about my situation in making sure that I was victorious, which I was. Finally after 4 years of turmoil that I went through, John really brought light to how weak the prosecution was and really highlighted the "victim" and his character and credibility. John's style of cross examination is really interesting--especially his choice of words. And that is not even including his closing statement!! He is amazing and God bless him because through Mr. Cromwell, my life was truly saved!!
At the beginning of my criminal case Mr.Cromwell asked me the details and reviewed all the files. He went personally with an investigator to review the place where the incident occurred. He also requested all my medical files as I was injured during the incident. I was at ease that I had someone who was dedicated defending me. He left no stone unturned and got me a good outcome. If I had to describe Mr. Cromwell in a few words I would say these all apply caring, honest, dedicated, and professional.
Okay, I was arrested for having a pocket knife after work in NYC!! worst part is in Bronx. Cops are no jokes in the hood . After that, I found mr John in avvo, first he willing to take his time and answer my questions and reply to my question throu email ， very patient and very professional way. We set up an appointment , sat down and discussed my case and last he took his time to investigate and go throu all the problem with the local authorities . After preparing some documents and some reliable information, the Case was dismissed and no hassle after the third time appeared in court
Thank u again John! U DA MAN!
Mr. Cromwell provided representation for one of my family members,and from our first meeting I was impressed . I have dealt with several lawyers in the past, and none have ever been as kind,thoughtful and considerate as he has been. From the very beginning he has kept my family informed throughout every step of the process,via telephone,text messaging or email,regardless to the date or time,it did not matter. He is always right on target and pays attention to detail,and will offer sound advice if you rwquest it of him. I would definetly reccomend Mr. Cromwell to anyone who is in need of and/or are searching for a great attorney.
I, as a client recommend the Legal services of Attorney John M. Cromwell, He always was answering all my doubts, he is an excellent criminal defense lawyer, i highly recommend him!
My daughter was on a college field trip from Washington state to New York City. While there she and 4 of her classmates were given citations and summons to appear in court in New York in 6 weeks time (for being in a park after dark). It would have been impossible for these students to get the money together to fly back to NYC, but that was their legal responsibility and they all were facing the prospect of having warrants issued for failure to appear.
Through Avvo I found John M. Cromwell, I was impressed by his bio, and gave him a call. He knew right away what needed to be done.
He appeared in court with notarized affidavits giving him permission to represent the students in their absence. Everything went beautifully, no fines were levied and the kids were "off the hook" on good behavior. What a relief. Thanks John for all your help!
John was great. He responded quickly to an old summons that I had not dealt with, provided me with good advice, and helped bring my issue to a quick resolution. I would recommend him highly.
Mr. Cromwell has helped me tremendously in my case. In the time I worked with him he toiled through my case with ease and finesse, even though for me, at times it was stressful. He did what he had to to stay on top of things and kept me well informed...I highly recommend him.
