John Scura III is the best in his field!
John Scura III and his Law firm, Scura, Mealey, Wigfield & Heyer, has been invaluable to me and several of my family members over the years. His compassion and expertise to all personal and business legal matters are only some of the reasons why I would not hesitate to recommend him or his Law Firm to anyone I know.

You will be happy you hired John Scura
Thank god I was recommended to John Scura by a close friend. After interviewing with a few attorneys I was frightened, however immediately during my first meeting with Mr. Scura, his calm way eased my mind during this stressful time. John is extremely knowledgable in his field and honest. I highly recommend him.

Amazing Attorney
John Scura and his firm enough! From the secretaries to the paralegals and up everyone has been amazing. I have been working with him the past 3 years and have unfortunately had to deal with many other attorneys in the past and John is the absolute best!

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF INTEGRITY AND DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE
Mr. Scura is a consummate gentleman, scholar, and most importantly a consumer advocate. I interviewed plenty of lawyers, in the past for various needs, but no one comes even close to Mr. John Scura, he is an exceptional attorney, with the highest level of integrity and recognition in his field, among the public and his peers. He is also an exceptional person as well. What could be better a top-notch attorney but combined with being an exceptional person, a rare combination,especially when a lawyer is a leader in his field of law! Hire Mr. Scura and his team, they are the best!

John's compassion, integrity & work ethic
John first hired me as an associate attorney when his firm consisted of his father, John and me. I then became his law partner and we worked closely together for 12 years. I am usually not the type of person to take the time to write reviews online, (especially about one of my "now" competitors), but I just saw his name underneath another attorney's profile & I figured who else is in a better position to speak about John as a lawyer, than his former partner? It was both an honor and a privilege to work closely with John. John has an impressively vast understanding and knowledge of the law and he combines that with integrity, fairness, and remarkable compassion for all people, especially his clients. I learned more from John Scura than anyone & I am proud & thankful that he was my partner, mentor and friend.
