    DUI Defense

    Mr. Drake represented me during a difficult time of growth in my life. He provided me with peace, knowledge, and satisfaction in my DUI defense case. I strongly recommend Mr. Drake. Unlike most attorneys, he will shoot you straight from beginning to end.

    John David Drake’s response: “Courtney did far more to help her situation than most clients are capable of. She worked extremely hard. In negotiations with the District Attorney, he commented on the amount and quality of work Courtney performed to put herself in the best position possible; he said it was "Impressive." I'm certain that is what helped her get a good offer. Good Job - Courtney. Thank you, John Drake”

    Life changing...

    I found myself caught in some trouble from shoplifting. I felt like I was in a point in my life where I didn't have a choice which forced me to step outside of my character. I had to provide for my child so i stole. Going to court, I was treated like a criminal. When I knew deep down that that was not me. That's the day I contacted Mr. John Drake. I had a job opportunity come my way and the fact that a shoplifting charge was now on my record, hindered me from the job of a lifetime. When talking to Mr. Drake, he was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do to help. Within a weekend's time, after some hours of community service and an apology letter to walmart, Mr. Drake got my shoplifting charge dismissed! I am now working and providing for my daughter with no help at all. Mr. John Drake truly changed my life!!

    Dependable Representation

    I spoke with almost every attorney in Rutherford County before I had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. John D. Drake. After eight years and two life changing events, I can say with the utmost confidence if you are in need of a family/personal injury attorney you can trust to represent your best interest look no further. John took the time to get to know me and the situation I faced before laying out a series of action for obtaining the outcome I needed. I was not always the easiest client to deal with due to the emotional nature of both my legal situations. If I was crying he would make me laugh, if I was angry he would make me laugh, if I was complacent he would call me out and encourage me to take action. With John and his assistant Kelly as your legal guidance you have a team who will go the extra mile for you. I am thankful to say that over the years I have gained two friends whom I fully trust to support my family's best interest if and when the need arises.

    John is great!

    John made this whole process so easy! All I had to do was look over the case with him once, and he took it from there! I hardly remember it because he handled everything with promptness and professionalism.

    Review for John David Drake

    John went above and beyond on my case. After reviewing it with him just once, he knew exactly how to handle it and made it very minimal work for me, which was great because of my busy schedule. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    Excellent Service

    Mr. Drake genuinely cares about his clients, and treats them with respect, no matter the situation. He is extremely knowledgeable, and is able to communicate complex legalese so that we were able to understand the processes completely. He is a "straight shooter" and tells it like it is, so as not to set unrealistic expectations. We really appreciate the courtesy he's shown us, and highly recommend his services!

    Probate

    John helped me handle the probate of my grandmother's will after her passing in 2014. The probate process was foreign to me but he made it very painless and his knowlege and expertise were invaluable. I recommend John Drake to anyone needing legal advice.

    Let's hope you don't need him, but just in case...You won't be sorry you hired Mr. Drake

    John Drake did an amazing job handling my case and getting my charges reduced. He was a professional and courteous. I was very happy with the service I received from his office and Mr. Frost as well. If you're ever in an unfortunate situation (let's hope not) and need a good attorney, I recommend Mr. Drake. He also has a good sense of humor which helps lighten a tense situation.

    A vicious bulldog in your corner

    If you need someone who will stand by your side and REALLY fight for you, John D. Drake is your man. I was in a very weak and sore state when he took to my defense, and he was more than enough stand in front of me and attack. I would highly recommend John to anyone at anytime

    John David Drake’s response: “I wish I could deduce exactly who this client is, then maybe I could show them that I have all my shots. Aggressive representation, while helpful, isn't the only way to obtain a good outcome. I often say a light approach is equal to a heavy pounding, as long as the result is a win. -John Drake”
