I had a minority shareholder working for my company that was just not performing up to our company’s standards and actually blocking its growth. I offered to fairly buy the shareholder out and we came to an agreement and shook hands on it over dinner. A day before the shareholder was to sign she backed out. John Andrews was recommended to me by a trusted adviser of my company, and what a great recommendation it turned out to be. John handled the case perfectly and efficiently negotiating a very fair buyout, without litigation, in a matter of months when these types of situations can easily last years! He handled everything so I could run my company without the distractions these type of situations normally produce. He concisely explained all my options defining the pros and cons of each important decision in a non-legalese way that allowed me to understand them so I could make the important decisions. He was responsive with communications even at night, weekends and holidays. I trust John implicitly. In fact I now consult John on much more than just legal advice with my company; I now draw on his expertise for all of my important life/financial decisions and their subsequent legal matters. I highly recommend John to anyone in a legal bind and/or just for sound professional legal advice.

I found John on Lawyers .com and he was the only lawyer to call me back promptly, as I only had 1 day to find a lawyer before my court date. He listened to my problem advised me that i should meet with him that day, due to certain issues i could not and still took my case anyway. I meet John for the first time at the court and I knew right away I hired the right man for the job!!! He told me the good and the bad that could happen and in the end with only one more court appearence my case was over in my favor and I could not be happier with the results!!!!! CASE DISMISSED!!!!
Thank you John

I had reason to need a lawyer not too long ago and John made what could have been a very painful experience into one that I could handle. John went above and beyond to make sure no one else took advantage of me or my situation. I feel that anyone that requires a lawyer should do themselves a favor and hire a lawyer that is very approachable for the client but aggressive when it comes to fighting for his clients rights. I would gladly advise that John be the first call in pretty much all circumstances and stand back and let a true professional bring it home.
