    • I recommend John Higgins.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Foreclosure matter.

    Contacted Mr. Higgins for some legal advice regarding some pressing mortgage issues. After doing much research myself and speaking with Mr. Higgins, he was very knowledgeable and I knew he was the right attorney to represent me. The area of law that I needed his council is unchartered waters (which is why I had to selective about my choice of attorney). Fighting the BIG BANKS is no easy task. He did not hesitate to step up for me- which is a quality that we want in an attorney.
    In the past 2 years. he has kept me well informed, guided me in every step of the legal process, been very fair and has been found to be very trustworthy. He continues to be tenacious in assisting me and I am very satisfied with his council as he continues to represent me.
    I would highly recommend Mr. Higgins. He is an exceptional attorney.

    • John handled my Business matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired John F. Higgins to draft and negotiate contracts for a reality TV venture. Mr. Higgins is a perspicatious attorney with a fervent grasp of the law and an eye for detail. He took a consientious approach to fully understanding all aspects of the deal, and delivered a comprehensive document. During negotiations he demonstrated highly developed communication skills and represented my position with compassion and integrity. I will be seeking Mr. Higgins council for future business transactions, or to act as a personal advocate.

    • I recommend John Higgins.

    My prior experience has lead me to believe that all lawyers were lying men in nice suits, indolent and indifferent to the details of one's case. It was because of John Higgins that my view has changed. A man of good character was and is a priority in determining who will represent me in trial. With that being said, I highly recommend John and I will continue to recommend him to others.

    • I recommend John Higgins.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I am a physician and needed specialized employment conttacts reviewed and new contracts drafted. Mr. Higgins was very efficient in ascertaining what I needed and then quickly produced documents that have served me well for two years. I have dealt with many attorneys over the years and would rate Mr. Higgins at the top. I recommend without reservations.

    • I do not recommend John Higgins.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    john higgins was already representing one person in an automobile accident were there was an off duty police detective involved in this wreck and the report was falsified. john had called me and i was told he was legally able to do this, he wanted to represent me.i did not know any better so i let him represent me. after several of his actions didnt seem right to me, i started contacting other lawyers to verify my thoughts and turned out i was correct. after higgins found out i contacted someone else, he became upset with me. later that day he ended the contract with me. higgins still has some of my paper work that he refuses to return to me. he has told me that i never gave him the originals when i know i did. higgins has also lied to me on a few different occasions. i know i cant make him change, but hopefully i can keep some people from being done wrong any further.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Melton came in to my office and was referred to me by someone who was involved in a car accident. It was explained to Melton that I would investigate his claim. I had Melton sign informed consent in writting which stated specifically that there could be a confict of interest by my representation, but that he was willing to waive that. Melton's behavior became bizarre, and was troubling. He became very abusive to me and my staff verbally, and made threats. I determined that I was not able to perform my duties for him. I had Melton come to my office to retrieve his original documents. I also had him sign a release, which he read, stating that he received the paper work in question. This clients review should be disregarded as untrue. I kept a close paper trail on Melton because his behavior made me and my staff anxious, and we felt that he could pose a threat to our safety. I did everything ethically, and by the book. It is unfortunate that he has made this claim, and used this forum to try to make me look as though I acted improper, when I did not.

    • I recommend John Higgins.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I retained John Higgins after I gave someone a damage deposit, but the person ended up being a scam artist. The scam extended to a lot of different people and condos in Nashville. I went to the police, worked with a detective, and the district attorney, but no one was able to help me. It was a large sum of money and I was desperate to get my money back. John Higgins took my case and through his hard work and relentless determination was able to get my money back. I was the only person involved in the scam that was able to get my money back, and I credit John Higgins. He was able to help me when no one else could. He is a great attorney and I would definately recommend him to anyone.
