The Best Attorney I Have Ever Hired
I have had the very great pleasure of enlisting legal services from John McCorvey Jr. I was impressed from the initial consultation to the finalizing the the details. He is a very good listener, I felt that he truly listened to every word I spoke. His attitude throughout my case was kind, patient, and respectful. Mr. McCorvey kept in touch with me regularly as he worked on my case, answering any questions that arose. Legal language was made understandable to me as he patiently explained documents and files. My case had originated in another state, then was domesticated in Florida. He wasted no time acquiring all the information from both states. Today my issue is completely resolved thanks to his superlative knowledge of real estate law. I never want to call another attorney ever again. In my 51 yrs of married life I've had to hire several attorneys for diverse issues. He is by far the best of them all! I would say "Excellence" permeates his law practice from the top all the way down. If you want an attorney that treats you with respect as a person instead of just another case number, he is the one for you. I assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Real Estate Sale
John was our real estate attorney for the sale of our home and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work he did for us. We were selling by owner and he was always very intentional about keeping us in the loop and explaining any questions that we had. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone selling their home.

The Lawyer's Attorney
I have been a practicing attorney over 30 years, and when I needed wise counsel and a strong advocate I went to Mr. McCorvey. He gave solid advise and was an excellent advocate. The results he achieved were beyond my expectations. Thank you.

Recommendation of John McCorvey
John has been my attorney for two business related legal matters now. I find John very knowledgeable about the law and resourceful in expanding his knowledge base for specific matters. John has always been extremely responsive and timely when we had pressing matters and questions. At times when it seemed like the world was "going to hell in a handbasket" John was always able to put things in perspective for us and show us the reality of the situation. He was always honest with us even if it was news we did not want to hear, and was able to put these things in a context we could understand and accept. If another legal matter arises, I will use John McCorvey.

Real Estate Company
As a property manager for a commercial REIT I have worked with John McCorvey over the past 5 years on various Landlord/Tenant issues. John has represented us with lease reviews, defaults, evictions, liens and tenant bankruptcies. He is very professional with a thorough knowledge of Tenant/Landlord laws and clearly outlined our legal options. I would not hesitate recommending John McCorvey.

Solid Counsel
We've been using John for foreclosure work for our finance company for 10 years and he has provided solid, reliable counsel. John's approach is thorough and conservative in nature, nothing is overlooked or left for future exposure. Each case is handled with the appropriate amount of attention and follow through and he's easily reached for those urgent issues that sometimes arise. I have in the past and will continue to recommend John and his team.

Excellent Service!
I have worked with John and his staff on numerous real estate foreclosure actions. He has proven to be incredibly unassuming and accessible, always keeping me well informed. John can also be stern and strong when needed. I am extremely pleased with John's work and his work ethic.

Required legal advise regarding a Commercial Real Estate holding
I was recently in a difficult situation that required immediate legal advice relating to a real estate holding. I was working out of the State which also complicated my case. My Attorney had referred me to a new Attorney Mr. John H. McCorvey, Jr., who he indicated would be more familiar with the issues relating to my case. I spoke to Attorney McCorvey via telephone and he quickly became familiar with my issues and represented me in court within a couple of days after our initial discussion took place. He was successful in challenging an injunction that would have cost me thousands of dollars. He has represented me in several court hearings, since that initial time, and each time he has successfully represented me with favorable conclusions. Some of the attributes that I look for in an Attorney are as follows; Practical experience in the respective field that I need assistance in, high ethical/morale standards, diligence, effectiveness and accountability. I am delighted to say that I found all of these attributes in Attorney McCorvey. Attorney McCorvey has surpassed my expectations and has remained extremely positive to the point where he has lifted my spirits as well. Inasmuch, I would highly recommend Attorney John McCorvey to my family, colleagues, friends and anyone else that needs proper legal representation.
