Great Attorney
Back in April of last year my family and I were involved in a head on collision luckily we all survived. John finbury came highly recommended from a family member who used john as an attorney years ago for an accident. I am very pleased with the outcome John finbury produced very knowledgeable and thorough and makes the anxiety of a bad situation leave your mind when done talking with him. My family and I can't thank him enough. If we should ever need legal assistance again John will be my first call.

To John Finbury
Back in April of 2011 I was diagnosed with RSD/CRPS (reflex sympathetic dystrophy). This was a workman's comp injury, John went above and beyond the call of duty to help me, not only with my compensation claim but also helping me with my social security benefits. He continued to work diligently, professionally and was so loyal to me I felt so confidant and had 110% trust in him. He was in constant contact with me throughout the whole entire case. He never once let me down. I started non invasive treatment referred to as "Scrambler Therapy", which helped my CRPS very much. I would highly recommend to anyone needing his expertise. Thank you so much John!
