    • I recommend John Bishop.

    There was a possibility of losing my RN license or at least being placed on probation by BRN because of a misdemeanor. It was very stressful to work thinking that I may lose the career that I've always loved. I consulted Frederick Ray's Law office and Mr Bishop was assigned to handle my case. I was disappointed at first because I thought he wasn't experienced enough to handle the case. But Mt Bishop proved me wrong. He handled my case very well, kept me informed of what's going on with my case and how he's working everything out with the board. He handled my case all the way to trial. And I was very impressed how he defended my license. The judge didn't impose any discipline against my license and the decision was adapted by the BRN. Now I can work without any fear that I may lose my license because of an incident that happened in the past. I highly recommend Mr John Bishop. I couldn't thank him enough.

    • I recommend John Bishop.

    John Bishop represented me during an atypical and complicated medical licensing issue. The event was stressful given my lack of familiarity with the legal system, and its real potential to severely limit my career. However, he helped make the matter manageable by explaining the process clearly and being available to answer my questions.

    He helped me to put together and submit an effective petition to the medical board. Subsequently, he prepared me very well for my administrative law hearing, while also representing me very effectively. The process went about as smoothly as could have been expected. In the end, we achieved a very positive result, which allowed me to put the episode behind me and to successfully move forward with my career. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to my colleagues without any reservations.

    John is an absolute EXPERT in professional license law! I can't say enough good things about him! John gave me the facts from the very beginning. He was able to give me a realistic understanding of how the process would work and the odds of success. Ultimately, he was able to get my license denial overturned and my CA Insurance Broker's license issued. Thank you John and to the entire team at Fredrick Ray Law Offices. If you are trying to obtain a professional license and have been denied, give them a call. They are wonderful! They can help you!

    • I recommend John Bishop.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Administrative Law matter.

    I highly Recommend John Bishop without reservation. His professionalism and empathy to my situation was second to none. I called his firm after talking with several attorneys and getting their initial review on how they thought my case would play out. I spoke with John late in the day, he took his time to discuss the overall issues I was facing with the Department of Insurance and obtaining a license. John told me he was very certain of a positive outcome he was also certain of it being a lengthy process as there were several steps and each had a specific waiting period; he made sure I understood the time-frame before committing to anything. John clearly set out the best and worst case scenarios and options I could take. He met me on a weekend to fit my work schedule; we spent the afternoon going over each detail of my case and the obstacles that would be faced. John made me aware of each of the steps and how we would overcome each hurdle. I always felt I had a real advocate, who was giving their all, not only on my case itself but moving the timeline as quickly as possible.

    John provided comfort in the hearing process; from being in contact with me the day prior, to arriving early to just sit down and chat to put my mind at ease, (he even described what to expect in the hearing room, providing a mental image of the layout and how things would progress so I would be comfortable). As promised, John delivered my case and conveyed to the Judge and the State a strong and positive argument, resulting in a State License.

    I couldn’t have been the easiest client to deal with; I had a difficult case, made a few panic calls to him asking for letters to my employer on a very short notice, even requested a him to facilitate a phone call to my management in hopes of buying more time while we were waiting on the state to issue a license. John handled all these requests quickly and went above and beyond in every instance. My Employer decided after speaking with John and hearing the confidence he had in my case, were willing to wait through all the state delays as licensing was sure to come.

    I would recommend John Bishop to anyone who is serious about their job and presenting an honest case by someone who will take the time, invest the energy, be creative and think outside the box, while being professional and has the respect of his profession. Even his support staff was a pleasure to talk with and responsive to urgent needs.

    I owe my license and keeping my job to John and his abilities. Without him I couldn't convey my story to both the state and my employer.

    • I recommend John Bishop.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Licensing matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    John helped me with my BRN application denial. He was very thorough in explaining everything to me in details. I'm not a lawyer or know anything about this legal stuff, but I felt comfortable asking him any question. Few times he was able to tell that i didnt understand a single word of what he had just explained to me, and he explained it in every way possible until he saw that I really did understand everything. I trust John, he gave me pro's and con's of each possible decision I made. He is real, and I didn't feel like he was trying to sell his services. I trust that he genuinely wanted to help me get the most out of my case.
    One thing that bothered me a little though, was that I had originally consulted with Frederick Ray. When I went back, and every following appointment after that consultation, I met with John. I would have appreciated being told that someone else would be handling my case and not the person who I thoroughly did my research on and had high hopes would be my attorney.
    That's my only mini complaint though. Aside from that, I am happy that I got to work with John. He helped me with what he was supposed to, and I am happy with his services.

    Mr. Bishop helped me get my real estate license and I did not have to face Judge. He prepared me well with all my documents and when it was submitted, there were no questions from DRE! DRE was willing to settled my case right away.
