Having an advocate during difficult times is so hard to find. You want someone who is not only passionate about the law but also uses that passion to prioritize your best interests during stressful times. John Rooney was that advocate for me and my family. My wife was hit by a car while crossing the street in Philadelphia. Your head spins when a loved one is seriously injured and emotions run high. All of a sudden you are dealing with police reports, insurance companies, and doctor’s bills that all are so important to manage so your loved one can be made whole again. John was great in anticipating the needs of my wife and my family; he was always present to answer our concerns regarding the accident. In addition, when it came to financial settlement, John was absolutely great in assertively dealing with the insurance companies and was aggressive to ensure we got the very best financial settlement. It’s great to have someone like John on your side when you’re trying to determine what needs you have not only now but in the future….John was great with helping identify those needs. We will always be grateful. You will not find a better advocate!

Mr. Rooney treated me with the utmost respect and more importantly had my cases dismissed due to procedural misconduct by the police. If you have been arrested and need someone that's gonna fight the DA and not sell you out then he's the lawyer you want.

I have been a practicing trial attorney for over 20 years. What I have found in my 20 plus years of litigation experience is that attorneys rarely fail because of a lack of intelligence. When they fail, it is usually because of a lack of will, work ethic and competitive spirit. They don't teach those things in law school. You either have them or you don't. John Rooney has them and that is why I am endorsing him. John is a smart, fiercely competitive attorney whose primary focus is on winning and not on making money. Too many lawyers have a primary focus on making money, failing to understand that money will take care of itself if you put your heart and your soul into your work. I know there are a lot of self-promoters out there in the legal community and it is difficult for the public to sort through what is real and what is not real. If you meet John Rooney, you will see that what I have said about him is real.

20% of a trial lawyer's work on a case produces 80% of the results. The trick for a lawyer is knowing which issues to focus on, and John instinctively knows how to cut to the chase, focusing on the real issues in the case and the most persuasive way to present them. I've referred multiple clients to John (both people charged with crimes and people in civil litigation) and have heard nothing but praise. I've told people to hire him over whole teams of lawyers at big, prominent firms — because he will produce the same or better results at a far more reasonable price.
