John Gardner is a great Lawyer. He explained all of the details about my case and all of the options that we could take. After deciding the route we wanted to go down, he stood by his word and made it happen. I had a possession of alcohol misdemeanor and a fictitious ID misdemeanor, both of the charges ended up getting dropped thanks to John Gardner. He is a great lawyer who I would recommend to everyone.

I had an egregious reckless driving charge (73/35) that I appealed to the circuit court. I had to stay out of jail because my job is on the weekends, and John Gardner was able to make a deal with the prosecutor to amend my charge to speeding 19 over, mitigating my jail time completely. I would recommend counselor Gardner for any traffic charge less than what I was originally charged for, because I caught a lucky break on my court date. Thanks, John!

I am extremely satisfied with Mr. Gardner's performance as my attorney in my reckless driving case! He was absolutely professional and spoke very highly of me as a client and sold me the best way possible and I am so greatful because the result was way better than we expected but that's how good of an attorney he is! I would recommend this man to anybody and I can guarantee he will deliver as he did for me! I have nothing bad to say about him at all because he is the epitome of what an attorney is supposed to be! Amazing job Mr. Gardner and thanks a million! You are worth every penny!
