John was great! I had a case for getting a citation on a provisional license, he knew exactly what to say to get me a not guilty verdict. He assured me that I would be alright and he was right. I was very pleased with him and the results of his work. I would highly recommend him.

We could not be more pleased with the results of our daughter’s case. The outcome was a direct result of the dedication and hard work of J.R. Francomano. From our initial meeting to the final court appearance, J.R. was very informative and made our entire family feel comfortable. He handled everything with the utmost professionalism, informed us of every aspect of how the case would go, and was very kind to us and our daughter. I would highly and enthusiastically recommend the services of J.R. Francomano.

I hired J.R. to defend a friend charged with multiple offenses arising from a drug arrest - possession, child neglect, and reckless endangerment - all serious charges, felonies, and all with likely jail sentences.
It was a first offense for all of these charges, but that alone would not have been enough to keep my friend out of jail.
J.R. knows personally the judges in Baltimore County, and the offenses each dislikes the most. That kind of nuanced understanding of the judges in Baltimore County can be the difference between home detention, or rehab, or probation, and 18 months in jail, and away from your kids, in the case of my friend.
Beyond that, as a former prosecutor himself, he knows the states attorneys just as well. He also knows now, as a defense attorney, how to weaken and defeat the prosecution's case, which is what he did for my friend.
The possession was thrown out, and probation for the other two. Without J.R.'s skill, knowledge of the law, and talent dealing with judges and prosecutors alike, the real-life outcome would have been very different. J.R. is highly, highly recommended.

Mr. Francomano was always prompt in regards to responding to messages, kind and easy to talk to. We found him to go beyond what he was hired to do. He adheres to the highest ethical standards and is strongly recommended !!

My 18 year old daughter found herself in trouble with the law for speeding 20 miles an hour over the speed limit and possession of marijuana. To complicate matters she was 2 months away from starting her freshman year at a university. The university makes it very clear that drug cases will keep you out of their campus. I was extremely concerned that she had ruined her life before it ever had time to get started. I found J.R in the phone book and from the moment I had finished telling him what the problem was I was put at ease. J.R. took over immediately and was compassionate to our situation. He was diligent in his work and often made jokes to keep me relaxed of the situation. My daughter received some punishment for her foolish actions but miniscule to what I had imagined would happen. She now attends that university without any issues from her court. I highly recommend J.R. to all of my family and friends and god forbid if any of my children get into trouble again I will call J.R. immediately

I hired JR Francomano for my Circuit Court indictment for possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, conspiracy to distribute heroin and possession of heroin. I was facing 44 years if given the maximum sentence for each charge. The state's attorney offered me 4-8 years. After JR had a pre-trial conference with the state's attorney and the judge and got them to agree to a no jail sentence with probation if I pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin, which is not a felony. He was extremely reliable and if I ever called him he would return my phone call within 24 hours. He was extremely cordial and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone!

My family and I had the pleasure of working with John ( I call him J.R.) on multiple occasions. He was a tremendous help and kept us on task. With his guidance and extreme knowledge of Baltimore law, we were able to make good decisions and the outcome was always favorable. J.R. was always available to answer any questions we had along the way. He does not treat you like you are just another transaction. He takes the time to get to know you and develops a relationship. I highly recommend him to my friends and family. I consider him "my lawyer".

J.R. Francomano did exactly what I needed him to do... Prove that I was innocent...When the general theme of a Protective Order is GUILTY UNLESS YOU CAN PROVE YOUR INNOCENT and a man can lose rights to see his child, his home and more... He listened, and then acted in court and proved that I was innocent and got me what every loving father wants...time with his daughter ...
I can never thank him enough!!!
