A Great Attorney, A Great Professional, and Amazing to Work With!
I Came upon John's name after the retained attorney passed away unexpectedly. I was handling my mothers estate and needed his assistance. At a time when you need some patience and understanding, John was right there from the first meeting. Calls and emails are returned without delay. And when you sit with him, you are not intimidated and are always given sound and honest advice. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. It is nice sleeping at night knowing you selected the best!

Very satisfied!
I reached out to Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello for help with a business with deceptive practices defrauding me out of my money. The consultation process was easy and helpful to get me an answer. Even though they couldn’t take my case they still emailed me resources to get strong clarity in my situation. I appreciated the care for me even though I wasn’t an official client. Very satisfied!

Real Estate Transaction Representation
As a property seller, i hired John Wadlin to represent me in a real estate transaction. I have owned this property over 25 years having obtained sole ownership after a divorce. John acted clearly as MY attorney, he negotiated and handled a rather complicated transaction in an efficient and professional manner. It was the fastest, smoothest property closing I have ever experienced. He is now my attorney for all legal needs. I highly recommend John.
