Excellent Consultation
Although I never retained John for legal representation, I could not be more happy with the consultation services he provided. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a callback from John only an hour or so after I submitted my request for consultation via the Drapp & Jaumann website, and even more so when he discussed my questions for 45 minutes - far longer than I was anticipating. His advice was sound, and though I've not yet required representation in this area, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to bring on John if did.

The best !
Mr. Drapp helped me during the hardest time of my life when I lost my father and went through Probate in Stamford, CT. His competence brought me peace of mind and he helped me to figure out a situation that no other lawyer was able to. Mr. Drapp is honest, knowledgeable, and highly efficient. I strongly recommend his services to anyone.

This is the lawyer you're looking for
John is hands down the best legal professional I have ever consulted. He combines depth of knowledge, total integrity, and attention to detail with a genuine concern and empathy for his clients. Although our engagement didn't proceed to hiring him, due to an unexpected relocation, he would have my business in a heartbeat if he covered the state we are moving to.

Family Law
I consulted with Atty Drapp who thoroughly explained the divorce and custody process. He guided in completing forms and explained the why's and why not's (no matter how many times I asked the same question!). However, the most important quality I seek in anyone is response time. What's dire to me may not be to them, but there's a fiduciary responsibility to provide a speedy reply - whether they've answered it 100x already. John never lets me down. I strongly recommend Atty Drapp to those seeking strong advocacy with their case.

Professional and knowledgeable
Attorney Drapp recently represented me in a family matter in court. His experience with cases like mine helped me win my case. He is a very personable, caring and honest man who is very reliable. He always returned my emails and calls as soon as possible. I highly recommend retaining Mr. Drapp; I am highly satisfied with the outcome of my case.

Overall expertise can't be matched
John has been my attorney on many various projects/situations. We have most recently enlisted his help in opening a new business. I have never had the pleasure of dong business with someone who truly represents his clients and drives to meet their long-term goals like John does. He asks the right questions, challenges the issues at hand, and makes sure our interest are protected at all times. He is quick, responsive, timely, and knows the local and regional laws better than anyone I have ever worked with. His practice is not afraid to take on any type of representation, but will be honest and upfront if something is not an area of expertise they have dealt with before. I would recommend, and have recommended John to friends, colleagues, and others I have come across with needing legal representation. Both myself, and my business partners have 100% confidence in John and his ability to execute and get the job done. We will never look anywhere else for our legal counsel.

"Attorney Drapp works very hard for his clients, gets great results and is very diligent. I would certainly hire him if I ever needed a lawyer that does the careful work John does."
Employment and labor Attorney | Apr 23
Relationship: Other
"John and I graduated from the same law school class, but we did not really get to know each other until in practice. I know that it's cliche to say that an attorney is "tenacious", so I won't use that word. Rather, I'll say that John is loyal to his clients and does not suffer fools with much patience. But that latter characteristic of John speaks to the dedication he has to his own craft, in that he expects others to work as hard as he does at "getting it right". And he does work very hard to get the right result for his clients. And he gets those right results. He is one of those practitioners who quietly practices with great competence."
