    • I do not recommend John Carroll.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he came off as an experienced, intelligent & professional atty at our initial consult. Once money exchanged hands he did not stay in contact & gave me evasive answers when I could reach him. I finally set up a meeting with him to go over some questions because I was getting so concerned, but when I arrived he was not at his office. I received no notice that the appt had been cancelled, he simply was not there. When the court date arrived he gave me an incorrect address in which to appear. He asked me to come 30 min's early because he wanted to review a video CD I received from the police dept with critical evidence on it. Even with having to drive to another location I arrived on time, but he never got there in time to watch it because he was late. He was completely unprepared. It was embarrassing being in a court room with him. If you need an atty, do your homework before choosing one. I didn't & learned the hard way. I wish I would have seen his advertisements inside the doors of restrooms in local establishments before I needed to find an atty. It would have been my first clue to go elsewhere.

    • I recommend John Carroll.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was facing several felony charges (drugs/gun) and the DA would not give me an acceptable plea bargain (DA wanted wanted me to go to prison for 7-9 years). So we went to jury trial and I was found guilty on all counts (three felonies and 1 misdemeanor). The jury came back with a verdict within 3 hours. John was awsome.

  4. Charged for servcies not rendered.

    • I do not recommend John Carroll.
    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Seems great at first but then did not return calls until the day of court. Also charged for phone calls that never took place. If you would decide to use him I would keep very close track of the calls that take place and how long they are.
