    • I recommend John Hinely.

    From the minute I hired Mr. Hinely he stood behind me. Mr. Hinely’s staff did an excellent investigation that showed I was in fact the victim of the whole incident. They even found a witness that the police noted in their report, but had never even interviewed. Even when the District Attorney tried to offer me a lesser charge, Mr. Hinely did not waiver and set the matter for trial. As trial approached the District Attorney again tried offering a lesser charge that was rejected. Just before trial was to begin the District Attorney dismissed the entire case. I could not be happier with Mr. Hinely.

    • I recommend John Hinely.
    • I hired John 1-6 months ago.
    • John handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    John represented me on some drug charges. From the first day, John noticed legal issues with the way that the police searched my house. He got his investigator out to my house right away, and began collecting what he needed to fight my case. He filed a Motion to Suppress and on the day set for the hearing the prosecutor conceded that the search was illegal. Not only were all my charges dismissed, but all of my property was ordered to be immediately returned to me from the police.

    • I recommend John Hinely.

    I'm over 70 years old and had never had any experience with the criminal justice system. It could have been a traumatic ordeal but John helped me every inch of the way through my case. He kept me well informed as to what was happening and what I needed to do next. He was very caring and compassionate. I was really glad to have him in my corner.

    Mr. Hinley represented my daughter in a possession of cannabis case. John carried out my daughter's defense with utmost care, talent, and professionalism. During preparation for the trial, John was on task every step of the way, and did a fantastic job of thoroughly collecting all relevant data, communicating updates, and brilliantly navigating trough unforeseen circumstances. His patience and unrushed manner gave me a sense of good will that exists between good friends and relatives. The verdict was NOT GUILTY! Thank you, John!

    • John handled my Speeding / Traffic Ticket matter.

    I received a speeding ticket and was charged with a misdemeanor for driving with with a suspended license. I contacted Mr. Hinely the day before the arraignment as I was on the east coast and could not be there. He was prompt and professional, and even with less than 24-hours notice, took my case.

    He was very communicative and kept me informed of what was happening every step of the way.

    Mr. Hinely succeeded in having the entire case dismissed! I couldn't have asked for anything better than that! Highly recommended!
