Never ending gratitude to Mr Toner LLC
Mr Toner not only took time to respond to our concerns but also the time to listen. He exceeded the expectations we had for the end result. Mr toner is The Epiphany of what I believe every person looks for in an attorney. I would like to add this comment for any and all of his future clients... Learn to have a little patience, after all the greatest things seldom toke a day to build. Thank you so much Mr Toner, I truly believe that we would have been lost not just in the world of law but within the system itself.

Super lawyer.
I consulted Attorney Toner about a difficult case because it involved a great deal of bias. Despite the political situation, Attorney Toner continued to demonstrate that the law must be upheld and thus prevailed. Let me also add that he is very kind, compassionate and easy to talk to.

John Toner IV represented me in two different cases. His thoroughness and knowledge of the law was exemplified with the motions he wrote in both cases. In both cases, a Motion to Quash the Indictment was filed. In both cases, the Indictments in question were dismissed, both felony first degree burglaries. He also entered a negotiated plea on misdemeanor charges, and it was accepted by the DA.

Excellent Attorney
I’m so glad we got the opportunity to work with Mr. Toner. He’s helped to ease worries in a stressful situation not only with his knowledge and advice but with his humor. His quick response and turnaround time on sensitive issues has been much appreciated. He’s gone above and beyond to provide items for follow up and records for future use. We won’t hesitate to seek Mr. Toner’s assistance again if needed in the future. He may be new to the area, but if this is his standard of service, he’ll quickly build clientele.

Caring, compassionate, attentive
John Toner was a very humble compassionate and attentive attorney. He was assigned to me through the juvenile court. Unfortunately my case was also filed in superior court by the other party and I had already hired and paid a hefty retainer to another attorney. John still fight for me as hard if not harder than my paid counsel. He never missed a hearing and went above and beyond until the juvenile case was dropped and the superior case took over. Honestly I wish she was still the one representing me. It was obvious he cares a grate deal about his work and the clients he represents. I would highly recommend him, and appreciate everything he did for me and my family.

Aided my son
My son received a ticket for speed to fast for conditions. There were a couple of issues with the citation. Mr. Toner contacted the DA, and reviewed the issues with the DA and the officer. The case was handled quickly and effectively and without my son having to go to court several hours from home. Mr. Toner was professional and friendly in all of our conversations and meetings. I can't thank him enough.

Best Lawyer I Know!!
John is a lawyer I trust. He has the ability and the integrity to take care of his clients. The guy works harder than any other attorney I know, and he gets the best results for his clients, not just easy settlements. He is honest, he tells it like it is, and he has a way of making you feel like everything is going to be okay. With John, I know it will be okay. I hired John to defend me on a misdemeanor charge in Chatham County. He took my case very seriously and recognized what a conviction would mean for my career. He actually cared, which made a huge difference in the case. I wasn't willing to settle for a lesser charge and John took the case all the way to the end. He pushed the DA's office to look at the evidence, or lack of. He fought on my behalf, and he was never intimidated by the County. They dropped my case after nearly 2 years of John fighting for me. And that whole time, John stuck by my side, defending me. I HIGHLY recommend John Toner to anyone who asks. Whether it be criminal or civil, this is the guy you want by your side! I wish I could do much more than write a recommendation. THANK YOU John!!!

First Class Representation and Advice
Mr. Toner guided me through an out-of-state divorce which I had waited 20 years to pursue for various reasons. He was kind, compassionate, down to earth and very knowledgeable. I felt confidence and trust working with Mr. Toner, despite not having personally met with him. He was always available to answer my questions and listened to me closely when I shared my intentions and goals. He was firm in our position regarding certain important issues to me in the case, as I had asked him to be, and ensured an expeditious finalization of the proceeding. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Getting to know Mr. Toner as an attorney exposed me to his personal character as well, which I admire. He is active and directly involvement in supporting social causes outside of his practice of law. People tend to view lawyers as caring very little about anything but the bottom line. Mr. Toner is a true exception to this rule, if it even is one.

"Attorney Toner is a passionate and caring attorney. The areas that I know Attorney Toner excels at are in criminal defense, child dependency actions, and federal criminal defense. However, I would trust him to take any action for me, because I know that if he is unfamiliar with the law at the time he takes the case, he will work his tail off to know all the nuisances and case law by Court time."
