Honest trustworthy and highly recommended
Mr. McCormick provided exceptional council during a particularly complicated legal issue. He was well versed in the legal intricacies that we're essential in navigating to a successful outcome. More importantly, Mr. McCormick took the time to listen to my concerns and understand the situation from my perspective. With so many layers to choose from, I consider myself lucky to have found someone as sincere, professional and talented as Mr McCormick.

Very responsive. Thorough, excellent consult
Our past experience with lawyers hasn't always been pleasant - they were difficult to reach, didn't seem to care much, missed things, and charged high fees. This is our first experience with Avvo....and we had a lawyer quickly respond but then disappear. However, with John and his staff, communication was fast, clear and straightforward - which was appreciated as we had only a few days to look over paperwork regarding a real estate investment. John had looked it over before our consultation, and he was extremely helpful, informative and knowledgeable in his phone meeting with us. In addition, he was personable and patient - listening to and answering our many questions and also explaining things in a professional but easy to understand manner. Our experience with John was the exact opposite of our past unpleasant attorneys and we are so glad to have worked with him. Highly recommend!

Business Dispute Settlement
John’s excellent handling of our dispute with the party that purchased our family business and then defaulted on their payments, allowed a settlement to be reached without having to file a lengthy and costly lawsuit

Worry free service
John was amazing. He helped to resolve our issues quickly, within the retainment fee, and made sure I didn't have to worry about the issue. He explained what I didn't understand and was clear in what his plans were with contacting other parties and what would be best in my case. He alleviated any fears or worries I had an allowed me to go on with my days without having this issue on my mind.

Awesome Lawyer
Mr. McCormick was so helpful. When I came to his office I had no idea what I was doing but he helped me with all of my legal questions and he setup my LLC. He walked me through the process and he delivered everything he said he would. I would recommend Mr McCormick to anyone that needs help with any legal concern. His kind and patient demeanor was great and I felt very confident with my choice to make him my lawyer.

Great Attorney
I found Mr. McCormick to be personal, intelligent and savvy. He spoke with me, not to me and immediately impressed me with his knowledge. Unfortunately, I have needed several attorneys throughout my life and Mr. McCormick is the 1in 100

Eviction
John did a good job from filing paperwork to court hearing. He met with our tenant and endeavored to have the tenant move out without involving law enforcement.

The Best of the Best
I would definitely recommend John McCormick!! This was the 1st time we have ever bought a house without an Agent & John was “there” for us every step of the way. He has a wealth of knowledge, professional & is a very pleasant person to work with!! We know who to turn to if we have any future needs! If I hear anyone mention anything about a real estate or estate planning Attorney, I will definitely recommend John because he is the Best!!!
