Comfortable Experience
Our experience with John Ginn was very informative, relaxing, and stress-free. At a time where my wife and I were selling our first home, John made us feel calm and at ease. John is a great guy, lawyer, and friend!

Exceptional Service
John helped us with the title work and closing for a commercial property acquisition. He did a great job and took care of everything quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend him and his firm.

Great Experience!!
John was incredibly helpful, responsive, and efficient. I was very impressed with his attention to detail. He made quick work of my legal issues... and even managed to get me an extension with the clerk of court on some payments that I failed to make! Saved me some additional troubles!

Thank you, Mr. Ginn!
We are from the Chicago area and needed a lawyer to represent us for a real estate closing in St. Augustine. John Ginn was the man. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He helped us negotiate the contract( no realtor involved) and walked us through the closing process. He was always there via email or phone to answer all our questions. We would highly recommend him.
