I can’t say enough great things about having John Lovell as our lawyer! He has represented members of our family in three different matters - two civil and one criminal. The criminal charges were all dismissed! And the civil matters resulted in us getting what we had asked for, within a reasonable amount of time! John has been totally professional and honest in all his dealings, and always takes the time to follow up with us to make sure we understand and are satisfied - every step of the way! He explained all of his costs in detail and even told us how he, and we, could keep the legal costs to a minimum. He has handled all of our legal affairs with excellence, integrity and thoroughness. John Lovell is definitely OUR family attorney!!!

I know lawyers get a bad rap but John Lovell negates any and all negative thoughts I ever harbored about lawyers. My case had a substantial amount of grey area, but John researched and examined every aspect of the "offense" I was accused of, and successfully had all charges dismissed and any remaining fines greatly reduced. I would highly, highly recommend John for any legal representation. He's a professional to the nth degree. I always felt John had my best interest at heart and it showed with the success in my case.

John Lovell guided us through a challenging time when our son was charged for selling a couple of pills at his school. It was way out of character for our boy. We were worried that there might be long-term harm to our son. Mr. Lovell negotiated a resolution that resulted in a dismissal of the charges. The event turned into a positive turning point for our son. John charged us less than he initially predicted. We are enthusiastic about his representation and would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney!

John is an outstanding trial lawyer who wins cases because he will out-work and out-smart the opposition. He did it as a federal prosecutor and does it now as a tireless advocate for his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a serious criminal defense matter.

John is that witty and charming lawyer that you meet once and you never forget. We worked together on a complicated Federal issue and I found him to incredibly prepared and tenacious for his client. I highly recommend him.
