To start with John is very accessible. He either answers his phone or calls back very quickly. He responds to emails and texts very quickly as well. When you are facing a legal challenge this is huge. Often as a client you are fearing the worst and a good attorney can put things in proper perspective. John listens 1st and advises 2nd. I had a challenging DUI case and interviewed 11-12 attorneys. John separated himself from all others by really listening, understanding the complexities involved and coming up with a plan. He followed through on everything he said would do . John clearly knows the legal system well, knows what to push for and when. Fortunately for me my case ended up in a dismissal, thus I did not get to see John in action during a trial but my gut tells me he would be thoroughly prepared and fearless. I do not get the impression John would be intimidated by any DA easily. I highly recommend John for anyone needing a class act criminal attorney. Lastly John's fee's are very reasonable for the service he provides.

After reading some of the other reviews, there is not much more i can say that hasn't already been said about Mr. Seed. I reached out to John the day after being charged with a very serious crime (Assault-DW) and from day one John was extremely knowledgable and supportive about the entire situation, not only did he provide very clear and direct advice, he took every step and measure possible to make sure that my quality of life would not be impacted until all due process was completed (ended my mandatory drug testing and also was able to request my presence not be necessary after a last minute emergency came up at work). With that being said John was able to resolve my situation in a very short amount of time with a very favorable resolution, which resulted in minimized legal fees and the entire process was resolved relatively quickly. He's a smart man, very down to earth, funny, and is extremely respectful of your opinion and situation, i mean what more can you ask for in an attorney...

Attorney Seed was very knowledgeable very straight and upfront. He went above and beyond for me and was there when I needed him for anything. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer that knows his stuff. Thanks for the win today I am forever grateful to you.

Attorney John Seed has been great since day one. He was always open and honest about what we were facing and what the process would be like. He was very dedicated, he always returned our calls and answered any questions we had. This was for a 3rd DUI case, which ended with a not guilty verdict. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in this situation.

I hired John Seed to represent a family member with an OUI. Although an attorney myself, I wanted someone with OUI experience in the state. John was every bit a professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and always available. We decided to go to trial and he secured a favorable verdict. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome and the service. I highly recommend for anyone in a similar situation.

John handled my very complicated first time OUI offense along with two other charges flawlessely. My affiliation with a local law enforcement agency made things complicated, and right off the bat, John got my case to remain in my local district court.
Once in court to make a plea for a CWOF (the evidence against me was very strong as well as my voluntary breathalyzer of 2.5 BAC and a very bad field sobriety test) as requested by me, the prosecution recommended that I be charged as guilty. The judge agreed. After John worked his magic, THE JUDGE CHANGED HIS MIND. He agreed to a continuance without a finding. Having no convictions was paramount to me, and John managed to make it happen against all odds and a scathing police report read aloud to the judge, saying I drove on the sidewalk. If you're thinking if just pleading guilty at arraignment, DO NOT.
CALL JOHN SEED, DON'T GO IN ALONE. His fees we're very reasonable, and a flat fee. He also has the option of payment plans. I recommend John 100% for legal defense.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I appreciate your hard work, effort, and kindness to my case. The moment I first saw you at the consultation, I knew that I had met the right person, and yet, you'd proved me right! And today, finally the wait has ended, we won! I can't thank you enough for helping me during this past stressful time, you gave me not only confident but also trust! You are truly the best! Thanks again!
And yes, I would refer you to everyone I know!

My case was probably relatively straight forward, as far as criminal defense cases are concerned. All the same there were hurdles to overcome and decisions to be made. I would not have preferred to done either of these without John.
I was arrested for OUI and driving to endanger, blowing a .20. I had crashed my vehicle into a stone wall, flipping it, after having had too much to drink at a local establishment. My record was clean but the crash combined with my BAC level allowed the DA to ask for harsher penalties. Between John's experience with handling many OUI cases and his extremely helpful knowledge of the various judges in the Concord court, he was able to steer the case toward the minimum sentencing.
During the process, from phone consultation to OUI program logistics, he was extremely patient and helpful. In my opinion, he earned his fee 100%. He spent a lot of time with us in person and over the phone while never rushing or pressuring us into any decision. Our first phone consultation had been a terrible experience. The lawyer knew the material and the law, but he was very aggressive and pressured us to put him on retainer. I'm glad that we didn't make that mistake. I had another conversation with a lawyer recommended to me by a family friend. He was very kind and honest, but did not seem like he had intimate knowledge of the specifics regarding OUI. He was also not very prompt in setting up a meeting. Minutes into the conversation with John it was clear that he was exactly what I was looking for. On our first phone call he took plenty of time to outline the specifics of an OUI case, he knew all of the details and possible results. He made no mention of payment, in fact he didn't ask for payment until moments before he went before the judge. His fee is very reasonable, especially for what we was able to offer. He happened to have another case in the Concord District Court the very next day, so we decided to meet him there. After his first case he sat down with us to discuss the various options in detail and at length. He explained to us the various judges sitting on that day and the likelihood of verdicts that each would give. After our approval, he explained that depending upon which judge was assigned to hear my case he would either proceed with the hearing or pull the case until another date in which we would have a more favorable judge. We were lucky and received the judge he preferred, and from there it was relatively straight forward. However, afterward, once he was truthfully no longer obligated to spend any time with me, he continued to accompany me to complete all of the paperwork and make logistical decisions regarding the courses and programs.
I was very happy to have John represent me. I think that if I had not, the case would've been drawn out longer with a potentially harsher result. I highly recommend giving him a call.
