By far the best attorney i've ever worked with
I came to John in a very expensive post divorce situation. The cards were overwhelmingly stacked against me due to my prior divorce attorney's mishandlings. (Three attorneys said I had no chance & refused to take on my argument). John accepted my case with full confidence. In my several office visits I was very comfortable in our discussions as he is very personable. His extensive knowledge of the law, his courtroom technique, and his litigation skills are incomparable to any attorney I have ever dealt with, all the while with complete fairness. John got the petition against me dismissed, because he left no stone unturned. I now carry his card and when someone says 'I need an attorney' I insist they call him.

Highly recommended bankruptcy attorney
Mr. Annechino helped me overcome my debt problems. When I needed a good bankruptcy lawyer I called John A. Annechino. Very compassionate because they know that their clients come to them in the worst of times. This is a lawyer who is passionate about providing excellent representation for his clients. You can count on this firm!!!!!!! Thank you so much for all you have done for my family.

Smart, articulate, informed, professional, dependable, and is able to assess a situation and adapt instantly. John has been instrumental in the successful resolution of several legal issues for myself and my family.

Family Oriented
Mr. Annechino is a wonderful, family-oriented attorney. I was referred to Mr. Annechino through a friend at work and I was very pleased with his patience. My situation was complicated as it was actually two separate issues....a personal injury matter and a custody situation. He was very delicate with both matters and helped resolve both issues with as little court time as possible. He is very close with many other attorneys and judges and was able to work efficiently outside of the courtroom to resolve my matters. Thank you very much!

Divorce Savior
Wonderful! I was recommended to Mr. Annechino from a friend of mine for a divorce matter. To say the least, my situation was not a pretty one. Mr. Annechino always took the time to explain the proceedings and process to me and I never felt like he was rushing me. Mr. Annechino is very experienced in Family Law and has a great reputation in court. Each time we went to court he was prepared and fought intelligently for my side. I truly believe if I didn't have him as my attorney I wouldn't of gotten such a great outcome from such a bad situation. HIGHLY recommend.

Great Attorney - HANDS ON!
Mr. Annechino is a great attorney. He was very pleasant and worked very hard on my behalf. He is a very honest attorney, which is something to be said! It's hard these days to find an attorney who isn't only concerned with every billable hour. Mr. Annechino actually returned money to me after my case was closed because he actually used less time and resources than originally anticipated. I would certainly recommend him and his staff to all my friends and family. A+
