Mr. Pennock is the best lawyer I've ever had, one you would want to have on your side no matter what type of case or legal affairs you want handled. He is very thorough, honest, and detail-oriented. Nothing misses his legal eye, and the wealth of accumulated legal knowledge and experience he has in various legal areas (especially in cases where they might overlap legal boundaries) is unbeatable. He is fair in everything, including and especially his reasonable fees, and he will tell you if you are being unreasonable in your demands or if you are crossing any legal lines in any of your cases and dealings that you entrust to him. He was my lawyer for a car accident and in real estate, and the thoroughness of the advice and work that he put into both were the same even though both didn't actually pay him the same amount of money. With Mr. Pennock, it doesn't matter what job he is handling or how much the job costs: it is that he gets the job done very well with your best interests always in mind. This is also why I say he is ethical, because unlike a lot of lawyers you meet these days who may only treat you as a case (instead of a person), Mr. Pennock will tell you how your legal decisions may affect you, your family and loved ones, or the other party you are working against, always making sure you do not endanger yourself legally. Because of his work ethic, his partners and legal staff follow the same principles he has set and have the same high regard for you and the law as he himself does.

we have known john pennock for about 30 years . in 1981 he defended us in an auto accident which had a positive outcome. then, in 2006 when we had a horrible life changing accident, john pennock was with us every step of the way. that also resulted in a very positive outcome which was tried in federal court. john pennock is very experienced and knowledgeable and comes to trial well prepared to win.

John Pennock’s talent for the law is exceptional. Extraordinary trial preparation and organization, witness preparation and trial execution. I am always amazed at how he assimilates and thoroughly digests every detail of any importance. At deposition and trial, John handles every witness with great skill, persistently extracting from them good, solid, factual testimony. Jurors follow his every move in the courtroom, listening intently to his penetrating examination of witnesses, both friendly and hostile. His closing argument puts it all together for the jury in a highly effective, understandable and believable manner. He is very well regarded by the bar and the bench for his high degree of professionalism and skill. Always civil. If you need a gladiator to go to court and wage your war for you, then you need John Pennock.

I have known John Pennock professionally since 1986 when we represented different co-defendants in a car crash case, and I was trying my first jury case. John was incredibly skilled then, and has only improved with each passing year. Indeed, John Pennock is among the most respected and capable trial lawyers in Upstate New York. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
