Extremely knowledgeable in gun law
I’ve been an attorney for 50 years and and already knew something about gun law. The issue is that the laws and ATF procedures keep changing. John is an expert at two things. First, his willingness to keep up, virtually daily, on changing developments. Second, his ability to explain current procedures in a sensible manner. I used him for a gun trust and he updated it without additional charge. The consequences of violating gun laws can be severe. Don’t guess—talk to John.

Exceptional Choice for Firearms Restoration Attorney
I was successful in restoring my firearm rights due to hiring John Pierce. From start to finish, John kept me informed of requirements, what to expect, quickly responded to all my questions and even practiced worse case scenarios with me just in case the prosecuter objected. After obtaining my rights, John also informed me of next steps, including how to purchase a firearm and what to do if I wanted to proceed with applying for a CHP. Thanks John!

Super helpful with 2A issue
Mr. Pierce understands the challenges that typical folks face when dealing with the government concerning our 2A gun rights. John knows the legal system well and has a lot of experience with the type of challenges of gun right infringement. After the initial consult to understand the unique aspects of the issue, John was super helpful in resolving the problem. I highly recommend John and his team of experienced staff.

Guns rights restoration success.
Mr. Pierce recently helped me with my gun rights restoration in Virginia. He worked diligently on my behalf & I believe played a pivotal role in in the success of my case. He was very clear & concise with the whole entire process and took his time with you on any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Mr. Pierce to anyone I know without hesitation.

I Couldn't Be Happier (Rights Restoration)
John made the process of having my gun rights restored so easy - He really understands the people, jurisdictions, and processes. I never felt in the dark as to what was going on as he explained everything both up front, as well as along the way. John is ALWAYS available to take a call, answer questions, etc. I really can't overstate how pleased we are with John and the entire process - It was actually a pleasant experience (not something I ever expected to say regarding a court appearance!). Thanks again, John. We really appreciate all you did for us!

Concealed Carry application contested
Mr. Pierce went right to work (with a court appearance just days away). His presentation was spot-on correct and convinced a judge to approve my application. I found Mr. Pierce to be very easy to deal with and he was willing to travel for an early hearing. Thank you John Pierce for restoring my peace of mind!

John is the man!!
*sorry John, this is a year late* John represented me back in 2021. I had a VA felony back in 1999 and I wanted to have my gun rights restored. I contacted John and he helped me every step of the way. The process was very easy. I put it off for years thinking it wouldn’t happen and the judge would deny me etc but nope. Super easy Zoom trial (currently live in FL). It was over in 2mins. Obviously my situation is different but my case was super easy. If you need your gun rights restored do not hesitate to hire John. He will guide you through the whole process and answer calls / emails right away if you need answers. Thank you again John and sorry for the late review!

You could not ask for a better lawyer.
Working with Mr Pierce was a wonderful experience! He was easily accessible, easy to talk to, and very knowledgable. I researched several “firearms attorneys” and found Mr Pierce’s knowledge to be far above the rest. I would highly recommend working with him!

Made my dream come true!
After contacting a attorney where I live to help me try to get my rights restored, the attorney informed me that he never handled a case like mine. My manager gave me John's contact information and I called him. John called me a couple of days later and inquired about my situation. He informed me that I didn't need to go to court, only about one hour of his time was needed. One month and one day later my dream came true!!! John called me to inform me that I was good to go!! That moment was so surreal!!! John is more than a ordinary lawyer, he truly cares about his clients and is so awesome at what he knows and does!!! I recommend him to everyone, I don't know if I would have gotten my rights restored this quickly or ever!!! Thank you so much John!!!!

Great Lawyer
Attorney John Andrew was an invaluable resource when it came to petitioning for my rights to be restored. Mr. Andrew was easy to talk to and explained complicated legal information in an easy to process way. I consulted with a handful of reputable legal firms in the N. VA area and I felt very confident being represented by Mr. Andrew. I found John to be very honest and non-judgmental with his approach and counseling. I am extremely happy to have John. I truly appreciate all that he has helped me with in restoring my rights to bear arms.

Outstanding representation
In April of 2021 I hired John Pierce to assist me in regaining my firearms rights. When I hired John he immediately sent me a comprehensive list of documents I would need to be successful. The second I received the list, I knew I had found the help I needed. He returned every call promptly and did everything possible to help me. The day we went to the hearing I felt like I knew every possible outcome scenario. John never made any promises all the while making me feel confident in his ability to get this done correctly. In the end we won and I received my firearms rights back. Truly a great day. I would recommend John Pierce to anyone trying to get there rights back. I feel lucky I found him. O yea I'll say one more thing. He answers his own phone.
