Five years ago I had the good fortune of finding Mr. Belcher in a very random search of the entire internet! Our collaboration was the result of my ex filing a civil suit against me. Mr. Belcher accepted my case which as years passed, became quite complicated for various reasons. His strength and belief in his talents and skills helped me persevere through dark days that made me feel like throwing in the towel! Steadfastly and with the utmost professionalism and compassion he proved to me that he truly is a GREAT attorney and a fantastically honest human being! Accolades to both Mia and Heba!!!! Such wonderful human beings who really know their stuff!!!! Well-spoken, funny, talented and focused, I will always be grateful for their understanding and support. I served 22 years in the military and from that experience, I am well aware of the hallmarks of "leadership." True leaders touch people's lives and influence them towards success. I learned so much from this. Mr. Belcher is my hero and a true leader in his profession! I wish AVVO had five more stars because five stars cannot adequately convey how pleased I am at the service I received. I absolutely had to win this case on principle. I needed the best attorney and that's EXACTLY what I got! THE BEST...

Mr. Belcher has been our company attorney for 8 years now. No matter how small or large the case is he has has been there with amazing representation and advice. We sleep better at night knowing he stands behind us. His knowledge of the law is impressive as is his dedication to each and every matter at hand. He has taken on matters that involve the IRS, insurance claims, assault and child support. Not only has he provided us with outstanding representation but everyone we have recommend to Mr. Belcher is very pleased as well.

I retained Dr. John Christopher Belcher after dissatisfaction with a prior attorney. I wish I would have hired Dr. Belcher first! He is very straightforward and explains everything in basic terms. My case was for divorce, which is never an easy process. It weighs on you emotionally and financially. Dr. Belcher and his team, Mia and Heba were awesome. They were very patient when I had a lot of questions and provided encouragement when I became frustrated and angry. If you are seeking an attorney that will support you and fight for your rights I highly recommend Dr. John Christopher Belcher and his legal team!
