It is so hard to find an effective attorney. I have. been dealing with extreme legal issues for four to five years now. I recently went to trial with an attorney(custody+ motions appeal). My attorney prepared for the custody hearing w/ diligence but neglected preparation for my motions hearing w/ the assumption it would be muted.Of course it was not & we spent two days on a trial my counsel was not prepared for while the custody trial was postponed, he sent me a bill for 12k. & all i could say was Turnball was worth 12k ..Turnball is highly efficient as well as effective & leaves nothing to chance.He is not the most persona le person but he is straight up&down with unrelentess litigation skills. HE represented me in 2012 for a highly publicized case & i took a plea(b/c it was mentally & physically draining) but i have no dou t that Mr Turnball would have fought well at trial. He has handled other cases for me with skill
He is quick witted & his prices are reasonable.I only wish he did custody. I am on these forums all the time & people i am hear to testify, believe everything you rea. Attorneys are.quick to ask you what you can swing (price wise) my response "the question is an you swing it",, If you need an attorney to WORK for you & not just SHOW UP, Turnball is your guy. If you don't choose him don't say you weren't warned.
Mr. Turnbull is the best criminal lawyer I have encountered in the state of Maryland!! He is the attorney you hire, when you know the odds are stacked against you and the case at hand is a case that will extremely effect your future!! His fees are reasonable and he is always willing to work with the clients!! He is an attorney that is on your side and will take all measures to defend his clients!! Even in worst case scenarios when the client is beyond doubt guilty Mr. Turnbull will always do everything he can to ensure your punishment is on the lesser end of the scale and not too harsh!! In cases where his client did not do anything wrong, but is simply being accused of false charges, Mr. Turnbull will do everything in his power to prove your innocence!! He has gone to the best law school and been licensed for 15 years!! Many clients as myself are return clients because of how happy we are with his services. We let Mr. Turnbull handle all of our legal affairs that he is capable of handling!! Even when a case is not a typical case Mr. Turnbull handles, he is always able to direct a client to a lawyer that is suitable for the case at hand if he himself does not handle that type of case, such as divorce or custody. He is the best lawyer in Maryland as far as I am concerned, and like the old saying goes... you get what you pay for!! Turnbull's services are worth every penny because your freedom is priceless!!
A few years ago I was driving through Baltimore and received a ticket for driving with a suspended license. I drive for a living so the consequences could have been bad from a professional standpoint. Mr. Turnbull got my charges dropped.
Mr. Turnbull represented me in a serious traffic case in 2008. I was coming home from a Redskins game and was pulled over for speeding and failure to provide insurance. Mr. Turnbull had all charges dropped. if he was not able to do so I would have lost my license and I am self employed so not driving is not an option. I absolutely recommend Mr. Turnbull's services.
It is with pleasure that I write this recommendation for Jack Turnbull. Jack represented my son on more than one occasion for multiple serious DUI charges. He handled the case as though my son was one of his own family members. He counseled him when necessary, was tough when needed and had the experience, aggressiveness, knowhow and demeanor before the court that was second-to-none. I have been an attorney for nearly 30 years and my evaluation is based on many courtroom experiences. I would never consider anyone other than Jack for representation in any criminal matter.
Mr. Turnbull is an excellant attorney and I would highly recommend him if you are in need of a skilled criminal attorney. I have known Mr. Turnbull for many years and he has consistently been successful in negotiating or litigating my legal matters. Mr. Turnbull is a harding working and dedicated advocate for his clients and is well respected among the legal profession.
Mr. Turnbull has been my family's criminal attorney for the past 10 years. He has not only represented myself and other family members in criminal matters within the Maryland Judicial systems, he has been an adviser and mentor of sorts for the younger generation of my family who aspire to enter in the practice of law. Clients for John Grason Turnbull III aren't just "clients - he cares. He takes a personal interest and he fights for his clients every step of the way.
I was involved in a very serious felony case of which I was sentenced to incarceration as a result of the conviction. Despite the fact that many family and friends thought I should accept the sentence handed down, John Turnbull remain determined to see that I get relief from the sentence and was eventually successful in securing my early release. He has been dutiful even in my post release in checking in with me to see how my life is going and to extend encouragement to me and my family.
One of the other great things about John Turnbull III is his fees are reasonable and he works hard at maintaining a high level of quality service for his clients - no matter the payment arrangements. What more can you ask for from a defense attorney than for him to be skilled, prepared and willing to go the extra mile for you. This is what John Grayson Turnbull III stands for and this is why I have written this testimonial to the quality and level of performance and knowledge he has in Criminal Law here in Maryland.
