Hiring Mr. John Griffin Watts was one of the best decisions I could have made. Mr. Watts was very professional in his representation and was quick in getting me the settlement we agreed that I deserved ! I would not hesitate to call on John Watts again if I was to ever need legal advice in the future, or be sure to recommend him to a friend !

John put me at ease and handled everything. He is honest and trustworthy and I would use him again if needed without a second thought. You are in good hands with John.

It has been a pleasurable experience of working with Mr. John, Mrs. Randi, and his law firm. The time that I have worked with Mr. John on my foreclosure case from start to finish, I have never been mislead by him. He walked me through step by step. He is very knowledgeable, understanding, determine, and ready to fight. Remember folks my house was already foreclosed, and he is able to undo the foreclosed and got my house back. Believe me, there is still hope even when your house is under foreclosure. Just don't give up. I have learned a valuable experience in my case. Learn to trust the person that you hired. I believe that you will win half of your battle through "trust." The other half, Mr. John can use his professional tools to work for you. I am so bless to find Mr. John. I highly respect and recommend Mr. john to anybody that needs help and advice in legal matters. Great work, excellent communication, intelligent, and friendly. Well done!!!! ( Hope to work with Mr. John again in the future. I know this is not what you want to say to an attorney). From the very bottom of my heart, I want to wish everyone success and happiness.

It wasn't until I met John that my opinion of Attorneys forever changed. I felt none of them truly cared, until I met John. I thought 100% of lawyers only wanted to tell you what to do, until I met John.
I can tell you from personal experience on more than one occassion, John Watts truly cares about his clients, fiercely fights for what is in their best interests, and is completely open and transparent. Additionally, he was very accessible, communicated often and effectively, and I never felt as though I didn't know exactly what was going on. If every Attorney would emulate John Watts, the perceptions of attorneys would be drastically altered for the better. Don't make a mistake and hire someone other than John.

I contacted John in early 2013 when I was being sued by a junk debt buyer. I am an attorney and even I was confused, anxious and overwhelmed by the process; I could not imagine how terrifying this would be for the average consumer. John was patient, constantly kept me informed of case updates, and always explained my options. John took the time to meet with me in his office and he explain to me, step by step, how the process worked and what we needed to do to defeat this junk debt buyer. I did exactly what John told me to do and we prevailed. He, never once, batted an eye over the 10,000 questions I asked him. John is extremely professional and an outstanding attorney. I would recommend him to any colleague, family member or friend. He is THAT good.

I had consistent harassing phone calls from bottom dweller debt collectors for a very long time but just learned to deal with it until one threatened to sue me. I came across John's website (alabamaconsumer.com) which was full of articles on the subject matter that convinced me the law was actually on my side. I hired John to take my case and the process was flawless, kept me constantly updated on what was happening with the case and what I needed to do. He won my case and would highly recommend him to anyone with his area of expertise in debt collection law.

I had been contacted by a shady organization trying to scam me for money. I was scared because of the threats of criminal action. Once I met with Mr. Watts, he eased my worries, explained the law and how to "put the ball back into my court". I was so pleased with his professionalism and knowledge. Thank you Mr. Watts! You will definitely get my endorsement!!!!

John Watts is unlike any lawyer I have ever met. He is personable, knowledgeable, respectful, and an all around great guy. I met John because I had been sued by someone I didn't even know, for a debt I didn't know existed. Panic set in. I was horrified, and had no idea what to do. That is when I called John. He explained things to me in a manner that was easy to understand and quieted my fears. He took my case, and won! He then helped me sue them, and won again! John always took the time to meet with me, or talk with me on the phone. He was always prompt at returning phone calls, answering emails, or sending updates. I never questioned whether my lawyer was really working for me. I pray that I don't have to, but if necessary I would use John Watts again, and again, and again. If you need a lawyer who will be on your side, and in your corner...look no further!

I have done business with John twice, most recently about a month ago. Both times John has proven himself effective and knowledgeable. Im sure most of us know that dealing with debt collectors can invoke all kinds of emotions from anger to depression. John took away those emotions and that made it easier for me to rest at night knowing that my credit score would remain intact. John stayed in constant communication with me and answered all of my question promptly. He also achieved the desired outcome quickly which was a welcomed surprise. . John is a true professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

I was struggling tryng to defend a lawsuit on my own. I had very few options as I was in debt and being sued with the very real possibility of losing the case. With the potential loss of the lawsuit I was facing garnishment of my wages which would have been catastrophic for my family. Because I was being sued I started getting advertisement letters from attorneys. Mr. Watts advertisment letter was the second one that I received. The first letter was from a bankruptcy attorney. I made an appointment with the first attorney who only had it in his mind to steer me toward bankruptcy. That first attorney offered no options and said if I was not filing bankruptcy he could not help me.
When I received Mr. Watt's letter I started reading it and actually began to see other options. His letter was very informative and helped me to understand the ramifications of the lawsuit that had been filed against me. His letter offered a free phone consultation so I called. Best call I ever could have made. With no strings attached Mr. Watts took the time to understand my situation and actually offered options other than bankruptcy. Mr. Watts is actually a problem solver and does not cherry pick his cases. He will listen to you and take action on your behalf. He worked diligently to bring my case to a very equitable resolution. I would not hesitate to call Mr. Watts for any legal matter.

John was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made me feel extremely comfortable from the moment we met. The thing I was most appreciative of was that John was not judgmental. While I was going through a very embarrassing situation, I felt that John was compassionate and understanding. John took the time to listen to my situation, evaluate my options, and make several recommendations on how to proceed. John is truly a master of his craft. My case was resolved in a short period of time (less than 3 weeks).
I can say without hesitation that I personally believe John Watts is the best consumer debt defense attorney in Birmingham.

John Watts will return your calls. I have retained dozens of attorneys over the years and John Watts is one of the best. He is knowledgeable, responsive, trustworthy, and most of all effective. He does a great service representing the consumer here in Alabama. Give him a call. You will feel the same.

I thought that I would have to deal with my debt on my own for the rest of my life and quite frankly I did not know what I was going to do. I hated the way being in debt made me feel and the insecurities I had in dealing with my creditors and even a pending judgement. I set out on a quest to find someone who could help me when I ran across John Watts' website. I viewed the information available on the website and selected the link for additional information. I almost immediately received information and not only information but a personal email from John. The first time I spoke with John I was nervous and skeptical if he or anyone else could "really" help me, I didn't believe there was a way out. In speaking with John I could tell he was very knowledgable about the credit laws and how they work and with his calm caring demeanor he helped me to not be so nervous. He also did not make me feel ashamed that I had gotten myself into such debt, but instead empowered me to do something about it. By the time I finished speaking with John I felt a lot better about dealing with my debt, I felt a sense of security in knowing I had someone on my side and I was no longer skeptical. I feel like with his guidance and knowledge I am finally going to get this credit monkey off my back. He has already helped me with a pending judgement and has given my guidance on other things that I need to do. So, if you are in the same/similar situation I highly recommend contacting John Watts at Watts and Herring. He will help you to feel more secure in dealing with your debtors and get you on the right track.

Honest straight forward real answers. That sums up my experience with John. I was being sued by a debt collector when I called John. He wasted no time getting back with me and explained my options and then followed up with everything he said he would do. He won my case and then sued them and won again when they didn't get it off my credit report. I then was sued again by another credit card company and again he won my case. I would recommend this guy to anybody. I called his office one day and within minutes of leaving a message, I received a call back from him and his associates. They give you a sense of comfort after talking to him my concerns went away. You know you are in good hands the minute you talk to him.

I'm a single mom of two boys and having just gone through a horrible divorce started receiving letters and phone calls from a company I have never heard of. I had no idea who this was or that I owed them money. I explained my situation to them and that the particular amount they said I owed had been payed off in 2005. This was not even the credit company that the money was borrowed from in the beginning. I knew I owed them nothing. Still the letters and phone calls kept coming.
I received a letter in the mail from Watts &Herring stating that they could help me with this problem and I am so glad I called them. They won this case for me and for once in a very long time I feel more relaxed and able to sleep at night knowing those people won't be bothering me anymore.
I highly recommend this lawyer for any case you may have if strong and positive results are what you're looking for.
Posted by Mary, a Debt Collection client, Flag
John was calm, respectful, knowledgeable and a good teacher of the law. After having met with him I, too, left with a feeling of calmness and trust that I had the most appropriate and professional attorney.
The debt collector called me names and lectured me about being a good mother, called my home incessantly, threatened court action for a debt that was not my debt. When John took action against the agency the harrassment/bullying stopped. Plus the settlement was more than satisfactory!
I believe he is making a difference for good people who are powerless to defend themselves.
Posted by Tracy, a Debt Collection client, Flag
John Watts is so personable and you feel like he really cares about you. I would send him emails after hours and would get an immediate response. Whenever I had a question, he would always provide me with details. He is really "one in a million" because I have never met an attorney that really took the time to respond and keep you as updated as he did. I would definietely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.
Posted by Sue, a Credit Repair client, Flag
We received a summons we knew was incorrect, but the credit agencies were not interested at all in reviewing our request. I reached out to John Watts and was immediately put at ease that there were options for us. He clearly explained our rights under the credit laws and listened to my concerns. He was diligent in filing our complaints and interceding for us with the credit company, and was able to correct the situation far above what we had hoped. He was so easy to understand and trustworthy. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with credit card companies - you need someone to help you with your rights as a consumer.
Posted by Jamie, a Debt Collection client, Flag
John is very personable. He made my husband and me feel like he actually does his job because he cares- it's not about the money. It's about taking on companies that get out of line! It's taking on companies that get away with nonsense and make your life more complicated than it has to be. John was mindful of my health issues too. I just cant say enough good about John. I didnt even get this good of service with our family attorney of more than 17 years. If I needed John- he made his self avalible without delay. As for the durration of our case- that was excellent too! I was expecting this to drag out at least a year or better- not for us, it was just a matter of months.

We were targeted by a bully debt collector and felt very intimidated. John helped us understand our rights and explained to us how we can use the legal system to stand up for ourselves. He walked us through every step and we could not be happier with our results.
Posted by Josh, a Debt Collection client, Flag
I ran across John one day when I had been called and told the sky was falling by a debt that was 9 years old. John kept me informed of every aspect of the case and always did it with a smile on his face. He also educated me on my rights and how to handle anyone who calls with threats. I have enjoyed my time dealing with John and now consider him a friend.

After being harassed and verbally attacked by a sub prime auto loan company (debt collector) , My Wife and I had our backs against a wall. After contacting Mr. Watts, and sitting down with him, I have to say, my opinion of Attorneys has changed all together. He was both very knowledgeable regarding our problem but sincere about assisting us. At the end of everything, we got our lives back, thanks to Mr. Watts entirely.

I am writing to express my appreciation for Attorney Watts with a recent issue with a credit collection agency. Attorney Watts assisted me with an issue that was damaging to my credit and painful to me. I was provided with information about my rights against credit collection agencies. After talking with Attorney Watts and Mrs. Carolyn I have a better understanding about what I can and should do, if I am ever faced with an issue with a credit collection agency again.
Thank you for all your assistance and informative information about credit collection agency.

A short while ago, I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. My husband had lost his job twice in the past few years, and our financial situation reflected that. Debtors and creditors alike were calling me night and day - with some threatening to sue. The last straw happened when a creditor decided to contact my manager at the office since I was not returning his calls. I got online and saw John's website, which offered a lot of helpful information for the situation that I was going through. After I made my appointment with John, I began to feel a little relief. The consultation was free. So, what could it hurt to meet with him and discuss my situation? I am SO glad that I made that appointment with John. In talking to me during that first meeting, John discovered that not one, but two collection agencies had used illegal practices to collect an alleged debt from me. During that first meeting, John made me feel very comfortable and just seemed like a really good guy trying to protect consumers. He was - and still is - very down to earth and very eager to help you. John filed a lawsuit on my behalf. The letters and phone calls immediately stopped, and within a few months, both companies ended up settling out of court. They knew that what they had done to me was illegal. John caught them at their game. Just yesterday, John handed me my settlement check from these two collection agencies. These people who were trying to get money from me ended up having to give me money because what they were doing was illegal. I would have never known this if I hadn't contacted John Watts. Throughout the entire process, John kept me updated and answered my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He treated me more like a good friend than a client. Last night, it felt really great to be able to lay my head on my pillow wihthout worry. -No more worry or sick feelings in the pit of my stomach....just a sense of peace...Thank you John!

When I first received notification from LVNV that they were suing me, I was devastated and did not know where to turn. I was embarrassed and was afraid they would contact my employer. After many nights of no sleep, I googled â€œwhat to do if sued by debt collectorâ€ and I immediately found the information John had posted on their website regarding what a debt collector can and cannot do. There is so much information there! I spoke with John on the phone and realized right away LVNV should not have sued me. After disputing the debt, LVNV had the suit against me dismissed. While this was goodâ€¦.it got GREAT when I talked with John again and he filed suit against LVNV. They should not have sued me in the first place and they should have removed it from my credit report. Because of John, I got a very nice settlement that was VERY unexpected! I not only feel great for having beat LVNV, I also hope that more people will contact John so he can fight back for you and teach these debt collectors to do their research before they jump! THANKS John!!!!!!!

I found myself being sued by Midland Credit Management, alledging they were the owner of my credit card debt unpaid balance. Being sued is certainly intimadating and worrisome at best. Living in Maine, I contacted attorney after attorney only to find none interested in taking my case in small claims court. Out of desperation I was forced to defend myself. I researched everywhere and anywhere on the internet, bought books on the subject, contacted online advocates and by the grace of providence came accross John Watts website, Alabama Consumer.Com. While Mr. Watts was unable to provide me legal advise, following his website provided me enough public knowledge to enable me to defeat not one, but two seperate lawsuits from the same junk debt collecter. While not for the faint of heart, defending myself and winning was within my control. If you find yourself being sued in Alabama by a debt collector, call this office first. They will provide the best legal advice money can buy. My only regret is that I do not live in Alabama to hire this lawfirm.

I consulted with Mr. Watts regarding a false credit reporting/identity theft issue that was troubling me. Despite having a law degree myself, I found dealing with the behemoth financial institution causing the problem, and the complexities of disputing its report, to be overwhelming and unproductive. Mr. Watts expertly guided me through the process, pointing out various pitfalls to avoid and recommending important steps to take to ensure a satisfactory result. Mr. Watts' knowledge, responsiveness and courtesy are unmatched. I recommend him without reservation to any consumer who needs an advocate in his corner.

I met John last May after being sued for credit card debt. John represented me against the junk debt buyer and won the case outright. I have since learned about consumer protections in place and continue to exercise my rights. I have collected monies from one collection agency already on FDCPA violations and have two more suits yet to be filed this fall. These debt collection agencies are clearly guilty of violating federal law and they too will be writing me a check. Call logs and voice recordings are my weapons of choice. Why would a well funded large scale collection agency violate my rights and the rights of others? Because they largely go unchallenged by consumers. Know your rights and exercise them. Spend some time on the excellent web site that John Watts has put together. I would highly recommend his services. I believe he's one of the best consumer attorneys out there.

I hired John when some debt collectors were harassing my family and me. I was so frustrated and embarassed and felt I couldn't do anything to stop them until I talked to John. He made sure we understood everything that would happen and kept us updated throughout the process. Now I feel so relieved and John helped me to see I don't deserve to be treated how the collectors were treating me. I recommend John to everyone.

I was being sued by MCM holding for a debt that had been sold twice. Not only had my debt been sold to other collection agencies before, it had exceeded the statue of limitaions. I began to research on the internet and ran into John Griffin Watts, their website was FILLED with valuable information. They have news letters and information that they will send to your e-mail address, all this will help you build a case against your debt collector. My debt collector knew they had sued after the statue of limitation and said my account was a stated account- and John Watts had information about that on the website. There are many websites out there but you can truly trust this one. I have now recommended this to my brother in law who is in the same boat as i was. Thanks John Watts for helping consumers like us. Oh...did i mention I WON!!

I was in the process of being sued for a debt that I was not responsible for. I consulted an attorney who advised me that regardless of the circumstances I had to pay the debt and that the only thing he could do for me was buy me more time. I was frantic. Then my daughter-in-law recommended the Watts Law Firm. The case turned out in my favor. These people are true professionals; experts in this area of law. They are in constant contact to keep you informed. They treat you as if your case is of the utmost importance. If you have legal problems in the area consumer law, I encourage you to use the Watts Law Firm. There is nothing like peace of mind!

I had debt collectors calling me over bills that were not mine! The debt collectors had also reported these inaccurate debts to all three collection agencies. Some even tried to sue me! I contacted John and he was instantly willing to help me. He is very knowledge in this area of the law. John was able to stop the harassing phone calls, clear my credit reports of all false information, and did a wonderful job representing me in the court. Needless to say, John was able to get the job done!! Also, his assistant Heather was wonderful with taking my messages and assisting me with my appointments.

A debt collector was wreaking havoc on my life. First the letters and phone calls, then a judgment and finally they tried garnishment of wages! That's when I called John. He explained to me they were breaking the law. Within no time the bullies left me alone. John was able to clear my name from the judgment and the debt. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of the settlement. I would recommend John to anyone having trouble with debt collectors! He and his staff were very respectful and thoughtful the entire process.
Thank you very much, John.

John helped advise me on a civil matter when my wife was hit by an 18 wheeler. The legal knowledge and experiential wisdom that he provided our family helped us gain a fair and equitable settlement from the trucking company which was clearly at fault in our case. I would highly recommend John due to his knowledge, experience and most of all his integrity. Not all lawyers are crooks and malcontents. John works hard for his clients to get them the best possible results - this was certainly the case for us.

Recently John G. Watts helped me settle a debt collection lawsuit where I was being harassed by a company day after day for several months with excessive phone calls. I didn’t know that they were breaking the law until I spoke with John; he then informed me that my rights were being violated. I even received a cash settlement because of the collections agencies failure to follow the law. John kept me up to date on everything that was going on with my case. I thank John everyday that my phone is no longer ringing off the hook with debt collectors. I highly recommended John G. Watts to everyone who is having the same problem I was. THANK YOU JOHN!!

John Watts and his staff have been a Godsend to us. They have helped us stop the harassing telephone calls and letters from debt collection companies and instead of them suing us we sued them. When we didn’t know which way to turn they showed us that there was a way out of the darkness. He treated us with respect, never judging or condemning us. We always felt that during consultation there was nothing more important at that moment than helping us. John and his staff restored our faith in the legal profession. Prior to meeting them we had the false impression that all attorneys were more interested in how much money they get rather than the quality of service they could render. They really do care about their clients. We have learned that we can always count on John and his team to be honest, informed and caring.

John & Stan recently helped me settle a debt collection lawsuit where I was being harrassed by a company day after day for several months with excessive phone calls and exposing my personal debt to a third party. This was a long and trying process which was very stressful to me but in the end we succeeded. I really don't know if I could have come through this without these two guys. They are both AWESOME attorneys and both complement each other in their own way. They stand for the truth and always impress upon you to tell nothing but the truth because in the end it will prevail. There aren't many lawyers like that around these days. John is so kind, caring and honest and really helps you feel comfortable in any situation. I hope I never have to go through what I did again but if so I wouldn't want anyone else but these two representing me. If you are being abused by collectors don't hesitate to contact them to find out your rights as a consumer. Thanks guys, you're the best!!!

When I pulled my credit report a few months ago I found a credit card I had no knowledge of this card until I looked at my report! I was so sick over this! I was served papers at my home that the company was suing me for this large amount of money that was charged to this credit card. I had no clue what to do so I called John Watts. I had heard how great of an attorney he was and my case was something he had great expertise in. I am so thrilled he won my case and had the bad the credit report removed from my credit history!

Upon entering their office during the Christmas holidays of 2009, I was an emotional wreck. With much worry about loosing our house, being harrassed by a debt collector, the guilt and shame had just about consumed me. Had dealt with this for 2 years on my own. Had previously used another attorney 2 1/2 yrs ago who took my money and suggested I sell my house. I did not trust attorneys after that and decided self reprensentation was the way to go. This decision was corrected by hiring Mr Watts. What a blessing John, Stan, Randi and Heather have been to me! I was despondant and they gave me hope, told me my rights, showed compassion, (handed me Kleenex) :),,kept me informed at all times and was always available just a phone call away. I had felt emotionally beaten and bruised when I entered their office. Now, their knowledge has empowered me, the fear and harrassement is gone and the case settled. I am so thankful to God for them! This is not just your typical law office,,,in my opinion, they are in a wonderful ministry that is so needed and appreciated! They continue to keep me informed via emails and I share this info. They are the BEST!

John Watts and his staff assisted me with TCPA, FDCPA, and Third Party Contact Claims against debt collectors.
Debt Collectors were contacting my parents, calling me at work, and calling my daughters cell phone for a debt the collectors had been made aware was fraudulant. It had gotten to the point that my wife, and I spent more time arguing over debt collectors calling then we did enjoying the small amount of time we have together.
Then we found Watts Law Group. John Watts and his staff explained Debt Collectors can't call my parents, or my daughter, except to find location information, and they can only do that IF they don't already have my location.
However, debt collectors are constantly breakly the law because only 1 out of every 100 people actually call them on it, and pursue legal action.
John Watts, and his staff have helped me put an end to embarrassing collection calls to my parents home, and my daughters cell phone. I can't thank them enough for the help they have given me in not only stopping the calls, but clearly up the false reporting on my credit.
I consider John Watts to be one of the best consumer litigation attorneys out there.

I had a situation where a debt collector called my home and left voice messages saying I needed to call them to settle a debt. I did not owe this collector nor did I ever had dealings with them but they continued harassing me with phone calls which totally stress me out. My husband got in touch with John Watts and explained the situation to him. John informed him that my rights were violating. John's assistant Heather contacted me and carefully explained what we had to do to get this debt collector off our back. John and his associates are very helpful, hardworking, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. To make a long story short John Watts and his associates got done what I needed to get done. The debt collectors do not call my home anymore . After working with John Watts and Heather I consider them not only lawyers but dear friends.

I have never felt so hopeful about any situation in my life, although I had never been in a situation like losing my home. I would not have wanted to go through my situation with any other law firm other John Watts and his wonderful staff. They were caring, understanding, knowledgeable, compassionate and and extremely resourceful in our time of fear and distress. I recommend this team of A class lawyers to anyone world wide looking for qualified lawyers. They worked with us financially, mentally,and emotionally and we will be forever grateful regardless of the outcome.

John Watts assisted me with violations of the TCPA & FDCPA due to identity theft issues. When John and I sat down, and began reviewing my information he took each situation we were dealing with, and explained it to me in detail. He also provided me with reports, and links to videos on each topic to better educate me. John really goes the extra mile to educate his clients on their case.
John also assisted me in disputing the discrepancies on my credit reports.
John Watts is not only one of the best consumer attorneys in Birmingham, he also runs a different kind of firm. John tries to work with his clients to be there for them even after normal business hours, and I do not know a lot firms that do that.
John has been a blessing to our family.

John has a way of explaining legal matters that removes the mystery and intimidation that I would normally feel. I have watched his videos and listened to his teleseminars on various consumer law topics and he has a way of simplifying the law into useful information for those of us who aren't lawyers but who need guidance. When I had questions about Power of Attorney and Living Wills, etc. to help with my aging mother, he took the time to explain things so clearly and point me in the right direction even though that is not the area of law he practices. I think he is truly what lawyers/attorneys were called long ago - "counselor". He explains options, provides guidance and is honest about his ability to help or not. His relaxed and easy manner along with his knowledge puts you immediately at ease in what can otherwise be a very stressful situation.

I came to John and Stan's office in October, 2006 with a box load of information regarding my dealings with credit reporting issues. After reviewing the files John and Stan filed a Federal Lawsuit with 6 defendants. They kept in touch by email, calling me directly when I asked for updates or when necessary. It took 3 years (remember we had 6 defendants) from start to finish but they were always on top of things whenever I asked. They gave me back my credit life! I recommend them highly and would not ever think of using anyone else.

I am one of those that thought I could never stand a chance against the unlawful actions of the biggest violators of law in America. I was just a "consumer" which by corporate definition is a "nobody" that no one cares about.
Talk about being wrong!!!
John and Randi saved my bacon, and the bacon i needed to provide for my family from a very large and obviously well monied collection agency.
I will continue to use him, and consider he and his firm friends because I know he is doing this for the good of people he cares about and not to line his pockets with green.

When a debt collector called my employer(I work in child care) and told my boss that I had commited a felony and that she should run a records check on me, it was devestating. I was afraid, not only of losing my job, but a beloved career. I went online to a site with lawyers from all over Alabama and asked if what the collector had done was legal. Within fifteen minutes I was contacted by Watt's office, informed of my rights, and offered representation. All of the members of his staff were curteous, knowledgeable, and dedicated. My case was settled quickly, and I never felt like I was being kept out of the loop. Not only was his handling of my case outstanding, but since the settlement I have continued to recieve e-mail newsletters on different legal and financial issues. These are free of charge, and seem to me to be a great public service, especially now that so many are experiencing financial hardships. If you have any legal questions, or have an inkling that you have been done wrong CALL THIS MAN!!!!

John is very knowledgeable of the matters he handles. He has not only represented me but he maintains an open line of communication with his clients. I feel comfortable calling him to ask for advice. I would definitely use him again if the need arises.
