Excellent insight and advice
John McAneney's legal skills and tax expertise allowed me to navigate a challenging tax issue with the IRS. Facing an audit in the wake of my former accountant's malpractice -- we dealt directly with the IRS and successfully handled the audit. No additional taxes or penalties owed, and a game plan going forward to avoid running afoul of the IRS red flags again! John's experience was valuable.

An attorney I would highly recommend
John has handled a variety of legal matters for me both for my business and for me personally. He provides an honest opinion, which is not always what I want to hear, but what I need to hear. John is timely in responding to questions whether by phone or email. He pays attention to detail and I have always felt that he vested in my concerns and is looking to do what is best for me.

Endorse John
Business Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known John Mac for over 25 years. I can give him my unqualified recommendation. John is one of the smartest attorneys I have worked with in my 40+ years of practice. John cuts immediately to the important core of the problem and then gives advice which focuses on the practical solution and which will accomplish the goal in the most direct and cost-efficient manner. John and I were law partners until about 10 years ago until I relocated my practice to my current firm. The best evidence of the high regard I have for John is that I have used him in regard to some personal legal issues that are outside my personal area of expertise."
Business Attorney | Feb 01
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I readily endorse John. He and I were opposing counsel on a difficult intra-family dispute that at one point, following a unexpected catastrophe, seemed irresolvable. Many attorneys might have given up, but John saw the catastrophe as an opportunity. We spent the next several weeks in difficult but productive negotiations that culminated in a settlement satisfactory to all."
Business Attorney | Jan 31
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with John on many different matters over the years, and often recommend him to friends and family looking for solid, practical advice for their estate and business needs. The fact that John was a CPA for 20 years and holds and LL.M. in Tax gives him a special set of knowledge and insight that serves his clients well."
Trusts Attorney | Jan 31
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse John. He and I worked on opposite sides of a difficult case which ultimately resolved in a fair way. He is always well prepared and is pleasant to deal with. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a good lawyer."
Unknown Attorney | Jan 31
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have known John for a number of years and worked with him on a very complex matter. John is professional and always prepared. John works hard to secure the best possible outcome for his clients. I would highly recommend John."
