Wonderful to my family he helped sit and talk through some issues between the two parents and settle issues and visitation out of the court room and a decision that not only made the two parents happy but especially the children.

Did everything he promised, when he promised, and kept us in the loop the whole way. Plenty better than some of the lawyers I have worked with in the past.

Johnny was always available, his advice was right on. I felt like I was his top priority. Case was settled with the best results possible.

Johnny is very well organized. He put together a detailed fact based summary of my defense against a battery charge. The result was what I deserved: a ruling of self defense.

On December 28th, 2009 my wife empty our bank accounts, took my daughter and moved in with her boyfriend. I was devastated and was totally unprepared for the legal battle I was about to face. I live in Palm Harbor so there were plenty of big law firms to choose from, so I went about interviewing them all. They had fancy offices, big conference room, several paralegals, aids and secretaries running around, but the â€œLawyersâ€ only spent minutes with me and I got the feeling that I would be working with their assistants more than them.
I saw Johnnyâ€™s billboard and said what the heck I will interview him. I was able to get a meeting right away because unlike the big firms he doesnâ€™t have 3-4 other offices. He has one office and is either in court or at his office in Holiday. When I interviewed Johnny we spoke for almost an hour and he asked about what I wanted, about my daughter and then he told me about his divorce. He then looked me the eye and said if you hire me your daughter is my number priority and you are a close second. I hired him on the spot.
My wife was a stay at home Mom and my daughter was only 3 Â½ and I worked a full time job and the court system was stacked against me. She pulled every trick in the book including lying to police to having me arrested on domestic violence (DV) charges and thrown out of my house when she filled DV injunction. In spite of all that Johnny was able get the DV and DVI thrown out and me back into my house. I was able to complete my divorce within 11 months from her leaving me. Johnny was easy to get hold and explained every step in the process to me and sometimes I didnâ€™t like what he was telling me but he was â€œALWAYSâ€ right and gave me great advice. My ex hired a large firm and she was never able to get hold of her attorney and she didnâ€™t understand the process and what was important. Her attorney barely knew her name and was working so many cases had to rely on assistants to explain the details of her case. Johnny limits his cases and even at one time gave me his cell number and said â€œcall anytimeâ€.
In the end I was able to keep my house and primary care of my daughter. I will forever be grateful for how he helped me and lessened the impact of my divorce to my daughter. My divorce was totally unplanned and unwanted and without Johnnyâ€™s help it could have destroyed me finically and disrupted my daughterâ€™s life forever. Because of Johnny my daughter still lives in the same house, goes to school with the only friends she has known and the only difference she has experienced is that Mommy doesnâ€™t live here anymore.
I highly recommend Johnny to represent you in divorce or other family and legal matters. He was and is a great Lawyer.
