Mr. John Rife is a lawyer I would recommend to anyone and everyone. He helped me get out of a really tough situation with the best possible outcome, in compliance with the law, and while taking the 'scary' out of needing a lawyer and being involved with the court system. He talked to me like a human being, and made sure that I understood legal terminology put into plain English, and always along the way never put me into a position where I was uncomfortable or disagreed with the way he was proceeding with my case. He told me everything I'd need to do to get my case handled directly and smoothly, and gave me the chance to be proactive which really helped me out. Your not just another dollar sign to this guy- and that's rare to find in lawyers.

John Rife provided excellent representation for my son who was arrested twice on drug offenses; one arrest occurring while he was out on bail for the first arrest. While my son was required to serve two months jail time while he was awaiting his court dates, Mr. Rife was able to get him probation, drug counseling, and community service with no additional jail/prison time to serve. I believe Mr. Rife's established rapport with law enforcement/judicial officials in Cobb County helped in my son's case. He was also very responsive to me and my husband and my son throughout the process, despite the fact that he was very busy with other cases. I would definitely recommend Mr. Rife if you are in need of an experienced criminal attorney in Cobb County.
