John is by far the best and most personable lawyer I have ever delt with! His staff especially Debbie make you feel more like family then just another pay day for them! ! Debbie helped calm me down from being stressed out about my case more than I can remember and she was like a god send! They will keep you well informed throughout the whole painful process and John will get you the best possible outcome he can and work with the opposing lawyer to make it for both parties ! I would not recommend any lawyer over him ever! My child custody case had a very positive outcome and I could never Thank him enough! So if you are looking for a Remarkable and Top Notch lawyer with a staff that that is just as good...... John is your man! I rarely write reviews but if there is someone who deserves a praising for their hard work or even a thrashing for their lack of work, I take time to do so! And John, Debbie and the rest of his staff deserve praise after praise........ . Thank you so much John, Debbie and everyone from Feibleman & Case, you are so wonderful!

John and his staff did a wonderful job handling my divorce and my stress level. I appreciated that much of what I needed to do could be done via email.

John was experienced and knowledgeable, professional, and honest about the reality of my case. John and his staff were sympathetic and supportive. Communication was impressive. I rehired John a second time, because I trusted he would handle my "new" case with the same skill, or finesse. Both times, I was relieved and thankful with the final outcome.

Approximately three years ago, I was totally blind sided by a former partner suing me for, not only half of everything I had accumulated and placed in a trust, basically a pre-nup, but also for custody of my youngest son. As ludicrous as I felt her demands were, and after discovering that several thousands of dollars had disappeared when she left, I realized that I needed advise from a person who was very knowledgeable about trusts and dissolutions.
At the beginning of our long term relationship, my partner and I had contacted a reputable attorney and had established a legal trust, so that should we decide to part ways, each of us would be protected from losing what each had individually placed into this trust. This was a supposedly air tight document, agreed to by both. After delving into her lawsuit, I found that what is previously agreed upon is not necessarily what will happen when a party decides they are not happy with the terms of said agreement. Not only did I stand to lose many rental properties, but the home in which I and my children lived. Most importantly, there was absolutely no way I was going to give up custody of my youngest child, no matter what it took to resolve this matter. From the birth of my first child to the last child, I had done everything I could do to make sure that it was a well known and established fact that my children were mine and mine alone. To say I was livid with her demands was an understatement.
I spoke with friends, business associates and other attorneys, from Salem to Portland and beyond, as to who could best represent me in this disaster. I needed to find someone who had experience and a winning track record. In other words, the “baddest”, meanest man or woman in town. When the smoke cleared, I wanted the other party without any recourse for any new claims. Everywhere I went, the same name kept popping up. If you really need someone who can handle all that comes at him, and has a winning record, you need John Case, an attorney with Feibleman & Case, Attorneys.
I interviewed several attorneys before contacting Mr. Case to assure myself that he could represent me to the fullest. When I finally spoke with him, I knew that he would be my choice. John is extremely knowledgeable about family law. His manner is calm and reassuring, yet he gets right to the point. He quickly assessed my case and began to determine the best way to address the demands of his opponent and resolved the issues at point. As much as I resisted, he made me realize that right is not always the end result. Justice is not always just. You have to deal with human nature. You never know what or how the courts will decide. He managed to keep me from a stroke or heart attack on several occasions. To me, black is black, etc. This isn’t the way life plays out. I put my faith and trust in John and he didn’t disappoint. It took nearly three years to resolve. I did lose some of what I felt was rightfully mine, but, and this is a big but, John managed to maintain, for me, most of my belongings. More importantly, his skills and legal abilities allowed me to retain one hundred percent custody of my son. For that I will be forever grateful.
Were anyone to ask me for the name of an incredibly knowledgeable family law attorney, with a long string of successful wins, there is no question, my answer would be John Case. He will be there for you, every step of the way.

I retained John Case when I had to become my father's guardian/conservator. This was a very delicate family situation, which John and his staff treated with professionalism, sensitivity, and when appropriate, humor. He guided me through the complex process, filed paperwork and represented me in court. He always provided immediate answers to questions and concerns. His expert knowledge gave me comfort and confidence during an extremely difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend John. Thank you, John.

John was great to work with through a very difficult divorce process. He and his staff were knowledgable and helpful. They had just the right mix of compassion and humor in dealing with the issues that arose, as well as my stress and frustration. I would not hesitate to recommend John Case to anyone going through the challenges of divorce.

John was able to cut through the BS that was causing so much confusion, and get right to the point. We discussed the details of my situation, the goals that I would like to achieve, and put a plan in motion that was ultimately successful. John has the experience to navigate the court system, get papers through quickly, and helped me understand the process. He was able to explain the difference between the law, my rights, and the fear-based rhetoric that was coming from the opposing party. John did not over-promise, he was up front about areas that might be subject to risk; and we planned for those risks in our strategy.

John Case helped me navigate the complicated divorce process, with clear explanation and protocol. I liked his philosophy of fair, unemotional approach when needed, while simultaneously acknowledging it is an emotionally difficult process for most people. He "gets it." He understands it legally, professionally, and humanly. I was confident in his legal knowledge and approach right away in the consultation. He listened to what mattered most to me, and was upfront about what was realistic both in process and outcome. We found humor at some times of difficulty, which was a relief. John has the right approach, the right perspective, the right experience and personality, and knows a lot of the right people to give him a comfort in his work which he passes on to clients. He made an overwhelming process as manageable as anyone possibly ever could, and handled it with compassion, intelligence, confidence, and sincerity. Also, there was no doubt that if what was needed was strength, it was absolutely there. Many thanks to John.

John Case and his stellar support team were there for me from the very first meeting. I really dreaded the initial meeting and likened it to feeling like I was headed for a "root canal" of anxiety. I immediately felt at ease and confident in the direction John took with the complexities of my impending divorce. I left his office with a feeling of relief and confidence that with his guidance I could survive the stress of what the future holds. I always felt listened to when I shared with him my concerns. I admire John's quality to be focused and efficient with both my time and his. Without a doubt I felt like I was moving forward and not stagnant. John and his staff are way ahead of the eight ball when it comes to taking advantage of technology. Talk about having all the mountains of documents, emails and phone calls totally organized and at his fingertips in a moments notice. Amazingly capable and responsive with his command of the mountain of paperwork that accumulates. My divorce settlement was decided in a one day mediation and didn't drag on and on. I felt like both myself and my ex felt like we came out ahead. Now how often have you heard that outcome?! John and the retired judge we hired to mediate our case were totally skilled at finessing the fragile egos involved. It never seemed like an adversarial process, but one in which both John and the judge were especially intuitive about working outside the box and creative to find solutions. I left our settlement mediation feeling sky high and grateful that I chose John Case and his kind team. John is one of the easiest people to talk to and I enjoyed my divorce journey with him. We shared quite a few good chuckles along the stressful way. John Case is a gem of an attorney!!

I utilized John in a child support case and was extremely pleased how he handled the case, us as the client, and obviously with the outcome. Throughout the case, even when tense and unnerving issues came up, John kept us at ease and on course with his plan. At no point did I ever feel like we were not in a favorable position with him on our team. I would have absolutely no problem recommending him.
