Mr. Elmore successfully defended me against a wrongful charge of domestic assault. His experience, knowledge and professionalism showed in the court room. The case was ultimately dismissed!
I would highly recommend John Elmore in any legal defense case. Based on my experience I find him to be respected by his peers and a very good litigator.

I never encountered a single problem with the law in my 40 years on this earth until earlier this year- 2015. I am a married man, have four children- two college grads, and a successful career of 19 years that I love! When I was wrongly arrested, I had no idea of what to do or who to call until I recalled seeing an attorneys billboard on E. Delevan & Humboldt St. in Bflo, NY.
All of these blessings were almost gone in an instant when local police officials wrongfully arrested me. Attorney John Elmore was attentive, punctual, and excellent in his representation of me. His confidence, knowledge of the law, and ability to explain the legal jargon to me in plain English allowed me to have piece of mind. Attorney Elmore's diligence and tenacity gave me back my freedom, piece of mind, protected my family's right to privacy, and worked collaboratively with my employer to maintain my career.
What else could ANYONE ask of their attorney? I stumbled upon the avvo.com review of Attorney Elmore that shed negative light on his practices by accident. Although I'm extremely busy researching topics for a paper I'm writing, I had to speak up and defend his hard work ethic. Even if it means not getting my research paper emailed out on time. Perhaps the author should have been a little more patient and trusting of the representation... Im sorry, who knows? Sorry your case didn't work out but he is truly a great lawyer.

My elderly Mother who's deceased , was in Sister's hospital being treated for a stroke , the social worker met with myself ( power of attorney) in regards to placement for a Rehabilitation center ; however without my prior knowledge and consultation with my mother , she was transferd wrapped up in sheets against her will, without knowledge of where she was going and without me being contacted in the middle of the winter. After arriving to the Hospital for a routine visit, I discovered this , immediately in route to the Rehabilitation center , I contacted Attorney John V. Elmore , he calmed me down, listened very attentively , he empathize with my anger , and informed me of my Mother's rights and my legal options. He's proven to be dedicated to helping all people receive fair and just treatment.

I endorse this lawyer. John is highly skilled criminal defense attorney and, as a former state trooper for over 20 years, I had cases where John represented the Defendant. He is very knowledgeable in the law, diligent, in and truly cares about his clients and ensuring they receive the best legal outcome.
