Excellent!
I had an accident case that was handled by two different firms prior to getting help from Mr. Roche's firm. The issues in my injury claim were complex and required an intelligent approach to maximize the outcome in my favor. I wish I had this firm from the beginning. My daughter and wife was also involved in the accident but unfortunately had to keep the previous attorney. My claim was settled more than a week after theirs and I've received settlement a couple weeks ago. My wife and daughter has not received their settlement as of the writing of this review. The previous attorneys had our case for more than three years. Mr Roche's firm handled my claim in about three months. Excellent and clear communication. No filler, I could tell they were working tirelessly on my claim when speaking with them. They did an extraordinary job of handling medicals and bills that the previous firms didn't even glance at. I felt confident that they did the best job possible for my claim and went beyond the scope of necessity in making sure I received not just a fair settlement, but the best settlement possible. I can't say enough about how they've exceeded my expectations. I've spoken with lots of attorneys in my time and Mr. Roche's team is the best I've encountered in the area. I'm not easy to impress and I'm extremely critical but I can confidently say you'd be wasting your time and money if you don't retain this firm. Thanks again for a job very well done!

Dealership Case Settled
There wasn't a moment were I didn't feel like I was on a team to succeed with John. His email response times were super quick and efficient. He was very detailed in explaining process to a layman like me. His advice on when to push and when to wait was spot on. I felt comfortable and knew I was in great hands. I would highly recommend him to family and friends who find themselves in the unfortunate situation that I was also in.

Excellent
I met John a few years ago when he was a new attorney. We have worked together on my difficult case for several months and I was happy with the results. John is polite and communicates well with his clients. He has an excellent understanding of the law and its limitations. Fees are appropriate and fair. I would ask John to represent me again if the need arises.
