Nobody I would trust more
I have been using John Fanney since the year 2001. I have used other local attorneys as well so I have a good frame of reference, and I can say I have always been taken good care of when using Mr. Fanney. Whether criminal or traffic, felony or misdemeanor, I have never been over-promised anything like some law offices do, the outcome always at least what it should be, and quite regularly the outcome has been better than expected, including my most recent case(and he has handled quite a few charges, somewhere between 10-12). I have recommended several friends and a few family members to use Mr. Fanney and they have always had good experiences and thanked me for the recommendation. Unfortunately, our criminal justice system is difficult and unpleasant to navigate but there is nobody else I would trust more with my freedom.

Great attorney
John and his staff are the best! John goes to work for you and gets results. John and staff were able to answer all questions and made me feel comfortable during the process. Results speak for themselves as case was dismissed. I highly recommend John Fanney!

Minor Poss / Reckless Driving
Mr. Fanney was very professional upon first meeting. He requested multiple continuances, but only fore-warned me about the first one, so I came into town multiple times for court dates I didn't need to. However, he capably got me the outcome I was looking for: a quick class and all my charges were dropped. Can't complain about that!

DWI Case
I hired John Fanney close to a year ago and was sure of him by the way he presented himself. John and I talked the case over just before we went to trial. While talking it over I begin to doubt that I would be found not guilty considering the evidence. When trial started, it all started to turn around. It was like watching great entertainment that you don't actually want to be apart of. John was quick and hit on points that we originally did not think of. He shines bright in the clutch, but also prepares himself well. A true Perry Mason in what he specializes. I was found not guilty of DWI and highly satisfied. I would highly recommend John Fanney to anyone that has been charged of DWI/DUI etc.

Your search is over for a DWI lawyer.
The most important thing you can do at this point is hire the best person to represent you and if you're in Raleigh that is is John Fanney. John is the perfect mix of honest, gentle, yet will fight hard for your case. Anytime I needed anything John and his office were responsive and he always made sure I felt comfortable with our next steps. He dumbed down the lawyer-speak for me to understand what was going on in court and the entire legal process. It took over 16 months but my case was dismissed. No other lawyer I spoke with in my research would have made that happen. He is worth every penny.

Best lawyer in Raleigh
Mr. Fanney worked with me last year on a case that ended up with the best possible outcome. He was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. He and his team are also extremely good at keeping you informed when you are working with them and helpful in every way possible. I highly recommend Mr. Fanney for anyone who is looking for the best in Raleigh!

Warrant Dismissal
I had a situation that needed to be handled within 30 days and Mr. Fanney was the man for the job. My son and I were scheduled to leave out of the country, but was denied his passport due to an unknown warrant for his arrest in NC. This information was received a little over 30 days prior to our departure and needed this resolved as soon as possible. I live in SC and Mr. Fanney was referred to me by my family lawyer. From the beginning Mr. Fanney and his paralegal Lindsay have been extremely helpful in this process. They jumped on our case the first day that they were contacted and they truly gave a me a piece of mind. They researched our case and had the DA to dismiss the case one week prior to leaving for our vacation. I was able to expedite my son's passport and received it in a timely manner. I highly recommend John K. Fanney from The Fanney Law Office in Raleigh, NC. If you are in need of an awesome lawyer...I promise that he is the man that can get the job done!!!

Highly Recommend
I was referred to Mr. Fanney by an out of state attorney that I was consulting regarding a legal matter that had implications in both states. John was extremely responsive, even prior to my deciding to hire him and took the time to counsel me on the matter via email and phone. Once I had decided to use his services, both he and his staff continued to be responsive and operate in a very efficient manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or (hopefully not have to) use John in the future.

Worth his weight in Gold!
My experience with John...Well, I researched him online and gave his firm a call. Needless to say, his legal team is amazing! Shout out to Tia! John told me not to worry and that he couldn't promise anything but he could guarantee that he would do his best. He had my DWI dismissed within 6 months. I would recommend him to anyone and hopefully I never have to use that particular service again but will always have him on standby. John is a professional and his knowledge is unsurpassed. Thanks to Fanney Law, I still have my career!

Best outcome possible!
John reresented me on a very serious charge and was successful in having my case dismissed. He met with me several times to go over the evidence in my case and showed me the opportunities we had to win the case. I am extremely happy with the results and give John the higest recommendation possible. He is a winner!

Great Attorney!
Mr. Fanney worked diligently to examine the ins and outs of my case. He was able to determine that certain aspects of the law were not followed during my arrest. This resulted in the dismissal of my case. I would recommend him to anyone.

Traffic Court Success!
Congratulations to Mr. John Fanny! I own him a great debt of thanks for representing me in traffic court several months ago. Though my case had some serious issues, he proved that the state's evidence was faulty on the DWI portion of my case. As a result that charge was dropped. As we left the court room I realized that I really had been "waiting to exhale". I am so very grateful to Mr. Fanny, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others like me. By the way, Mr. Fanny treated me with respect and dignity, and even gave me advice about proper court room etiquette.

Your man for a DWI
Great lawyer. He and his staff were excellent in staying in touch and answering any questions I had(no matter how dumb) made my arresting officer look like a new recruit. I would absolutely recommend

John is a stellar attorney providing impressive legal services when the results count! I would recommend him to anyone.
John has provided critical legal defense for me twice now, for seperate incidences. Both times he was able to achieve excellent results for me and I fully believe he put every bit of effort necessary into my cases to achieve the outcomes he did. Having spent plenty of time in court and witnessing several cases go to trial, I can confidently say I have not seen another attorney provide as thorough or professional a defense as I received from Mr. Fanney. I will never use another attorney in this area if John is practicing law. I came across a review for Mr. Fanney when I was seeking an attorney that seemed so fitting thoughtout my experience. It just feels right to close with it. Trust John.

Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend Mr. Fanney. Not only did he take care of my DWI charge (it was dismissed), he took care of me and made sure I understood that everything would be fine. He also went out of his way to help me find the right attorney for a speeding ticket I received outside of Raleigh. Mr. Fanney is the man for the job and he will not disappoint!
