Competent and Professional
I hired this lawyer at the end of last year to handle a complex real estate matter, which included a multitude of moving parts; I was impressed with his accessibility, competence and professionalism. His demeanor and control immediately made me feel confident of the situation. The end result was better than I expected and for the first time I actually enjoyed working with and paying for an attorney. His staff is also very pleasant and competent. Thanks again John for all your hard work.

As good as it gets
John Mancini is a very talented professional attorney. He is polished but also very savy with common sense street smarts to plan ahead, document and be proactive for success. He is creative and thinks outside the box to find solutions to advocate on his client's behalf while within law regulations, which he is very knowledgable of. The Consultation even showed that. There is nothing robotic about this man because he is a true thinker and approaches your situation as if he were in the same life changing situation. Highly intelligent, educated, skilled and dedicated to his clients and the profession. This was a consultation ]due to upcoming commitments he has, but based on the interaction my family had with him on three occasions and email, I would recommend him to anyone. I wished that we found him 7 months ago, but an attorney with his talent will always be busy, but will also give his all to your case if he takes it. His staff is also professional.
