I hired Drake to represent my grandson on various charges. He did not call me or my husband as character witnesses as he had said he would. After my grandson was convicted and sent directly to jail to serve his full sentence, Mr. Drake told him to contact him in a few months and would be glad to file a petition to try and get him out early. He told me and my husband the same thing after we left the court room and stood and talked with him for several minutes. Four months passed and I called his office and left a message for him to call me with his secretary. After not hearing from him for a week, I called his office again and the secretary said to me "this is about getting your grandson out early, right?" And i said yes, it is. She said again that she would have him call. Two and a half months later and he has still not called us. He obviously is not a man of his word. I thought about offering him more money to petition the court but came to my senses and decided I did not want someone who could not be trusted.

We contacted John Drake for assistance with a difficult legal issue involving our nephew. We are from out of town and an attorney friend of mine recommend we call John. He immediately checked into our issue and gave good, solid legal advice and assured us he would be able to help us. John Drake worked diligently on our case and skillfully negotiated the best possible outcome. He did not merely accept the first offer and settle; he kept at it until he got a resolution that was acceptable and will allow our nephew to move on with his life. John can be tough when he has to be. He is honest and straight forward, and through the whole process we knew he had our best interests in mind. He left our nephew with some solid advice about how to make the most of his life. I feel that I not only have met a very skilled attorney, but also I have made a friend for life. I hope our paths continue to cross during happier times. You absolutely cannot go wrong with John Drake.

John Drake did all he agreed to do. He did it in the time span that he said he would and for the fee agreed on. I was pleased and will contact him again when I am in need of a lawyer.

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.

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!!

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 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.

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.

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!
