    Very Professional. John will give you an honest assessment of your situation and create the strongest defense possible. I achieved a successful outcome because we were ready to go to trail and fight. Most Lawyers would have quit. If you want someone who will fight for you and your freedoms; I recommend John W. Thurston.

    • I hired John more than 3 years ago.
    • John handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    After being charged with a DUI offense I contacted John Thurston's office and arranged a meeting. After speaking with John I was at ease with what I was facing. Every time new information came up or a court date was near I was always informed promptly. I never felt hesitant about asking questions, and John will reiterate over and over that he wants you to call if you have any questions. Prior to my court dates I was walked through what would happen and reassured that John would take care of everything in the courtroom. He is a straight shooter about how he feels about your case and go through specifics of what he likes and dislikes about it. A very friendly, professional, and caring attorney who will make dealing with the law as easy and smooth as it can possibly be.

    I am a soldier at Ft. Riley and am writing this because I feel it is necessary to let the people of the Ft. Riley, Junction City and Manhattan area know about a great resource that they have in John Thurston.
    My fiancé and I were in a legal situation that was keeping us from being able to deploy. Years of training had prepared us to deploy with our units. We wanted to go and we wanted to get married first. My fiancé and I needed legal assistance to facilitate getting married before one or both of us deployed. If we couldn’t deploy together, very easily we could’ve been set to not see each other for at least two years! Our personal and professional lives were in turmoil! I’m sure any lawyer would be able to handle each of these issues separately, but I would never anticipate a lawyer having the resources or willingness to handle them all at once. And some other lawyers were not willing to help.
    With so much hanging in the balance, our careers and our personal lives, it was truly amazing how throughout the process this lawyer operated in such a way that although he made us aware of the odds against it, we could have complete confidence that if there were a way for the outcome that we wanted, he would work to get it. Because of his professionalism, dedication, expertise and personal consideration for our needs, and the fact that he obviously worked tirelessly to attempt to give us the result that we wanted, my fiancé and I always felt at ease with our future in his hands.
    I am happy to say that the results of our legal issues were of the best possible outcome allowing us to deploy, and most importantly, we were able to marry! I am writing this letter from Iraq where my wife and I are deployed, serving our country the way the Army intended!
    I am proud to publicly thank John Thurston for his services and let the good people of the Ft. Riley, Junction City and Manhattan area know what a great resource that they have in John Thurston.
