I came to Mr. McCabe a little over two and half years ago. A mother, who was desperately seeking answers as to what really caused the tragic car accident my daughter died in. Mr. McCabe was honest with me; and stated he had never taken on a case such as mine before. But if I chose him as my attorney, he was confident that he would do his best to get the answers that I was seeking. He made it perfectly clear that there were no guarantees. Mr. McCabe is fair, honest, and straight forward. These are characteristics I think consumers look for when looking for an attorney they can trust. As your case progresses, Mr. McCabe and his team keeps you well informed. There were times when things did not look favorable, he was straight forward. He did not "sugar coat" the facts And other times when things were going well, I was kept abreast of this too. Mr. McCabe and his team treat you with the up most respect. They listen to what you have to say. While recognizing that they are experts in what they do, YOU are the expert on your love one. I guess, you can say, he makes you feel like you are apart of his team. My experience has been that Mr. McCabe and his team do not look at your case as another case file but as a real human being, who they genuinely want to get to know. Mr. McCabe and his team are very compassionate people and I thank God everyday that He directed me to Mr. McCabe's Law Firm. I would gladly recommend him to anyone.

In 2011, my parents came to US from India to attend my brother's wedding. They came here on visitors insurance and just couple of days prior to their return journey, we were involved in a car wreck. My father was seriously injured and was in emergency room for a week. My mom had few stitches and whiplash injury. This being my first accident and not knowing what to do, I approached our corporate lawyers. They recommended Mr. John McCabe and couple of other lawyers to me. I am so glad that I made my first call to Mr. John. Once I met him, there was no need to call other lawyers on the recommendation list.
Mr. John McCabe has very pleasing personality, helping nature, great communication skills and strong ethics. He and his team worked tirelessly to negotiate the medical bills with Duke and also worked with Domestic and International insurance companies to settle all the bills and accident related issues. I could always reach him for any questions / concerns. If he could not be reached, his team made sure he got the message and I always got the return call. Mr. John McCabe is very trustworthy and genuine lawyer. I would highly recommend John and his associates to anyone in need of legal representation.

John has been exactly what I needed during an extremely difficult time - knowledgeable, empathetic, available, but most importantly EXTREMELY effective. I was making an effort to handle my situation on my own. I consider myself a reasonably intelligent person capable of reading laws and applying them. I really did not think I "needed" an attorney. But I was having difficulty moving my situation forward. After an initial consultation with John he confidently advised "I can help you with this." And he was very right. A "lay" person really cannot navigate the world of personal injury law. I placed my trust in John and he quickly achieved results I could never have achieved on my own. I am %100 better off having retained John's representation. I will unhesitatingly recommend John to anyone is a personal injury/wrongful death situation. I genuinely believe he will give an honest opinion if he can help you, and will achieve results.

I was involved in a trucking accident by being hit from behind by an 18 wheeler. Following the accident, a good friend of our family recommended that we contact John McCabe. He assured us that his firm was a very excellent choice and he recommended them highly. His recommendation was quickly proved to be a great one.
John quickly responded by driving 2 hours to visit us and very clearly outlined the legal opinions for us to consider. Sitting across the table from him, I could tell that here sat a man of character and
During the duration of developing the case. He and his staff were meticulous, prompt, knowledgable and always responded within 24 hours of my calls or emails. John and his staff maintained a very cordial, working relationship with us and everyone involved. John sometimes told me not what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. John removed all doubt and allowed me to focus on my rehabilitation. I simply did not have to worry about the details of the case.
Our settlement by mediation was fair and equitable. The Law Offices of John McCabe did an incredible job. Bottom line: John and his staff delivered the results.
John McCabe has became a true friend to me and my family and we still communicate with them now. This relationship will never end.
We have the utmost respect for John's integrity, legal knowledge and true caring that helped bring this tragic event to a close. We would highly recommend their firm to anyone and would be happy to receive calls on their behalf.

John is an approachable, honest and genuine guy who also happens to be an attorney! Out of all the attorneys I have worked with, John will always remain my first choice in seeking legal counsel. You know he has your best interests at stake because you can see it in his eyes and feel it in your heart. Give John an opportunity to help you.
