I got arrested for my third DUI and I did not have a clue as to what to do, who to talk to, who would be willing to take me as a client so I pulled out the phone book made a few calls to different attorney's and no one was interested because it happened in a county far from where I live and they where not willing to travel, then I seen attorney Carroll's picture and add and it got my attention, it was to the point and direct so I called, after reviewing my case he accepted it knowing he would have to drive almost three hours multiple times. What I thought was great about Attorney Carroll was that he kept me informed every step of the way, I was able to contact him at any time if I had questions, even on his personal phone. His office staff is courteous, patient and always kept me informed as well. This was not a long drawn out affair and the results were favorable for me, all charges were dropped and my record cleared. If you need an attorney I would recommend John M. Carroll, he and his knowledgeable staff will do there best to help you. Again, thanks John and crew you guys are the best.
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 retained john miller carroll back in december,the man has a very tight schedule and when i thought he wasnt working on my case i was dead wrong ! just because he didnt suck my money up with bs phone calls or letters he did an amazing job,i had 6 repeater drug charges facing 26 years in a county where i was very known,and jonh got me a deal of a life time walked away pleading guilty to repeat pot charged and got 2 years probation concurrent to my original sentance,did i mention i was on parole after already doing 5 years in prison for drugs,yeah i will forever keep john retained.
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.
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.
