Best Lawyer anyone could ask for!
After seeing several lawyers I was told that my divorce would be cut and dry at half my net worth. I was then referred to John and found out that was far from the truth. John built a case for me that was so strong that I would give him a 10 star review. If you reach out to his website, everything in there is the truth! His persistent professionalism is second to none; he was always there when I needed him. He even called me on a Sunday to let me know that everything was finished. You will not find a better person or lawyer than John. Thank you again John, for all you did for me. The best way to describe John is that he CARES!!!! I am so grateful to have met him!

Heart of gold
You don't know what you have until it is gone. I was a regular hard working guy with a basic life. One day at work a accident that could have easily been avoided stripped me of everything. After 2 months and 4 reconstructive surgeries I had lost or sold any and everything I owned to attempt to keep a roof over my sons head.I begged for welfare which is nothing anyone should ever have to bare.I figured all lawyers only care about your money but fortunately I proved myself wrong. From the first day I met John he started to help me manage to survive he was there every time I called even if it was for advice the man truly did everything in his power to help me get on my feet and survive. Which isn't easy when your permanently disabled.He is brutally honest even if it's not what you want to hear.This man takes his job seriously he let's you know your the boss he's there to help and he's extremely thorough at everything he does I must have called him a million times with tears in my eyes saying why me and please help me and he did rather it was a referral a friend to talk to or as my attorney he's always been there. I just resolved my case and I'm very happy to not only have my life back but I gained a good friend.

As someone who was not overly familiar with addressing legal questions or issues, Mr. Abeel was exceptionally knowledgeable and clear in walking me through the different processes. I couldn’t have asked for better and more efficient representation. He was an exceptional advocate for my interests every step of the way.

Very helpful rescource!
John has been very helpful in answering my question and directing me to supplemental information online, including current bills in both the Assembly and Senate that I intend on getting involved with! Thanks so much, John!

Evaluation of John Abeel
During the ordeal of my personal injury lawsuit there were many facets of the law I was very unaware of. I met John Abeel approximately one year into may case and he very simply and professionally explained what was going to take place. He met with me often and called me back promptly whenever I had questions. I believe that with the knowledge, confidence and experience he was able to reassure me that not only did he have concern for my case but that he was able to get me the best settlement. There were times that we spoke in person and I was in tears over the trauma I was experiencing but John's confidence and belief in me helped me cope with my pain and suffering. I truly believe that the Good Lord sent John my way as a legal professional and friend to give me confidence he would help me navigate things I did not know about and take care of every detail. Now at the end of my situation I will never be made whole physically, however by his efforts I have received the full insurance settlement. His advise was spot on in every area of personal injury law. He knows the law and I will never forget him for the friendship and help he has given me. I could not have asked for a better attorney that fights for what we deserve as injured persons. And just just remember it's not an accident, it's a crash and it's not your fault.

Client Review
John is very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney. He was by my side for 3 years ( yes, some actions do take this long ), and I never felt rushed, my questions were always answered and my concerns always addressed. I highly recommend John E. Abeel.
