Bankruptcy
I would love to recommend you hire John Carter Morgan as an attorney. I filed for bankruptcy and they were beyond helpful. They went over the whole process, helped me fill out all the paperwork. Anything they needed they called or emailed me. Everyone In the office was so friendly and professional. I can’t thank them enough for all their hard work and help to get me filed correctly.

Very comfortable to work with this team!
From the first phone call to the last day, Mr. Morgan and his team were very supportive, reassuring, and professional. Upon initial consultation, Mr. Morgan made me feel comfortable with his very laid back demeanor and wealth of knowledge; I knew I had chosen a great team to help me through my financial issues. I chose Mr. Morgan and his team based off of the reviews on google and now can attest to their accuracies! Thank you very much Mr. Morgan and team!

Not sure where I'd be today without having contacted New Day Legal. Even after I was no longer an active client, they have still been there for me for financial advice and help throughout it all. Excellent firm!

John Morgan Jr. is someone I admire and trust
I went to John Morgan hoping to get advice on my financial situation. The first day his staff helped me fill out paperwork, From there everything went smoothly. In a very short time I had my bankruptcy. John Morgan is a man who takes charge and you can trust. I highly recommend him.

Sent by God
My husband and I walked into John's office yesterday and explained our situation. With the experience and knowledge John knew exactly what we were facing. My husband and I had to go to court today because we were facing eviction so John supplied us with the information that we needed and we went to court today and presented the bankruptcy paper and it stopped everything. My husband and I had went to two other bankruptcy attorneys but neither one of them explained in detail what we were facing. John was put in our paths for a reason and I have God to thank and John and his team. You and your family and your Associates will be in our hearts forever.

It doesnt get any better than John!
John is the most caring attorney I have ever retained. He has a heart for people and genuinely cares about you. He didnt treat my wife and I like we were just a file, and a retainer fee (like most attorney do). He actually cared about what happened to us and our well being. The first day I meet him, my wife and I had a serious emergency on our hands. John and his team worked with me until 10:30 at night in order to get the issue reoslved. This guy played a huge role in preserving the quality of life and overal well being for my family and I. He explained what he was going to do, and how, in explicit detail and would not stop working until the job was done. He is an EXCELLENT attorney and I cannot gove him enough accolades. This guy is awsome! He was literally a God-sent for my wife and I. If you need your legal services done right and with care, go to John C. Morgan at New Day Legal Services. You WILL NOT be dissapoint.

John Morgan & New Day Legal Services
During the month of July 2014, I found myself in dire need of a Bankruptcy Lawyer due to being laid off twice in three years and was unable to pay my bills. The bank repossessed my car for non-payment and I needed my car so that I could look for work, and conduct interviews. I could have went with any number of bankruptcy lawyers in the Northern Virginia area; however, I chose John Morgan’s Law Office as my champion because of the kind and courteous manner in which Mr. Morgan’s staff conducted business. Mr. Morgan’s team never made me feel like I was ripping off the system to avoid my financial obligations. I made an appointment to come into John Morgan’s Office for a free consultation regarding my financial situation and to discuss my options. Although my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy was filed over three years ago, on occasion, I still reach out to New Day Legal Services for advice or to gather information regarding my previous bankruptcy. Both Mr. Morgan and his staff have always been extremely pleasant and helpful, even to this day they are still very helpful, kind, and considerate. Approx. one year after filing the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, I received an email from an Associate Lawyer with John Morgan’s Law Office advising me that he was starting his own practice and wanted to let me know that if I wanted to retain his services that I could reach him at his new office. Having met with Mr. Morgan and his excellent staff on several occasions during my bankruptcy proceedings I decided to remain with New Day legal Services (formerly John Morgan Law Offices) because of their professionalism and caring manner. I would highly recommend New Day Legal Services to anyone would needs a very competent and professional legal office. John Morgan takes a genuine interest in all of his clients, pass, present, and even future. New Day Legal Services is the gold standard for a successful law practice. Due to Mr. Morgan’s vast knowledge and experience you obtain a sense of calm when in his presence as he discusses with you your options. The repayment plan that John and his staff developed helped me get my finances back in order with a payment that is both manageable and fair for all concern. Finally, you cannot go wrong with New Day Legal Services, no matter what the situation. If New Day Legal does not handle it, they will refer you to someone who is equally competent. July 6, 2017

Peace in the valley
We were facing tough decisions about every financial issue imaginable. What we got was reassurance - and we were able to move forward with confidence. The advice we were given was golden. We are grateful at this moment for the knowledge, experience and support of John C Morgan Jr.

A lawyer that thinks more about his clients than himself
I met John a few years ago and at first I wasn't sure if he was as nice as he seemed. Well, after several interactions with him I learned that what you see is what you get. I recently had a family member going through a tough situation in Virginia and I called John. I am pleased to say that she was just as impressed with his skill and decency as I remembered. I would recommend John again if anyone else needed help sorting through a financial difficulty.

Excellent Service and very friendly and knowledgeable
I thought I didn't qualify. I thought I would never own a house or have my credit fixed to where I could own anything nice again. John called me personally and met with me and made me realize Bankruptcy was exactly what I need and that I more than qualified. I am a current customer and they are fast, efficent, and are working hard on my behalf. Thank you!

Best in the business
John and his team are awesome with a capital "A". They are a very real team. It amazes me how personally involved they get. No stone unturned. They check twice to make sure every I is dotted and every T is crossed. I used them for my self as well as my fiancé. Getting ready to have them take on a new case as I'm writing this review. If you find yourself in a position to have to file for bankruptcy I with out a doubt say hire John!!!

John and his team are absolutely awesome. They helped me out with my bankruptcy in 2015, and things have only gotten better since then. People think bankruptcy is "bad" etc, but sometimes people just need a fresh start. John got me that. Thank you so much for all you did!
