Highly experienced and recommended
I don’t know from where to start or how much to thank you! John was recommended through a client that works with him for years, I had some business issues that needed a lawyer and with respect to lawyers not any lawyer can solve it. I was discussing my situation with my friend and he kept insisting to call John for my case, I contacted John’s office made an appointment, they’re very nice and welcoming. Met with John few days later I addressed my issue and he assured me that he’ll take good care of it and I’m in a good hands. Usually lawyers make everything seems ok and solvable when its not, I was really nervous and so stressed For what is coming next. Well turned out I had wrong feeling, John Started working on my case as soon I submitted all the documents he requested. He was on top of single detail that any person won’t pay attention too, and the most important thing that he always answer his calls and respond back to the emails in no time. I highly recommend John for family and business matters he’ll get to the bottom of it and get it solved, you won’t find reasonable lawyers that cares about you more than caring about money. Thank you so much John for making it happen to me and my partners in no time and without even worrying. God bless you

Brilliant, compassionate and strategic - Highly Recommended
After a long period, interviewing and researching attorneys to handle my divorce, John Elias came highly recommended to me. I did not know it at the time as I was scared and confused but retaining him as my lawyer was the best decision I made. My divorce was complicated and contentious. John fought hard and strategized to secure an incredible settlement on a case that seemed inevitably bound to go to court. He is a brilliant thinker, and both he and his staff are indefatigably reliable. Each decision he made he consulted with me, and with compassionate council always kept the best interest of my children and myself at the fore. I trust John Elias implicitly and I do recommend him highly without reservation.

Trustworthy Attorney
I just would like to thank Mr. Elias for his knowledge and professionalism. I was lost, scared of the consequences of a divorced and unsure of anything. I'm so glad I went with him. Everything went just like he said it would. He was there for me every step of the way and not with TLC, I mean reassuring the whole time not to worry that everything was falling in place just like he expected. "No surprises". Before I knew it the court date was set and that was it. (Also inexpensive). If you tell him all the facts, he will explain everything you should expect in detail. All the pros and cons. I highly recommend him. His staff is also amazing.

Amazing Attorney
I have retained John Elias since 2010 till current for my case. He has done an amazing job, I have always been informed, he has always worked with me though I am 500 miles away. It makes all accommodations for me. He will call me, text me, and in his place his team is amazing and very family orientated. They are very sensitive inconsiderate of what you want to share, they are open to here and take all information into consideration. I haven’t had nothing but good results with John and his team. I have recommended him to multiple friends and family members and all have had amazing outcomes and great results.

Reasonable & Honest
I got to give credit to John's ability to multitask and stay professional and honest about the matters of my previous divorce during his busy schedule. Never tried to force his services, John simply gave his constructive experience towards the matter and totally left it up to me!! So even though I plan on never divorcing again I do recommend others to John and his great staff. To sum it up a great lawyer during hard times = resolution!! Thanks John and paralegal' s.

Simply the Best
Going thru a divorce after 22 years of marriage is no easy matter, emotions and metal state makes it difficult to protect your children and assets to move forward with your life. John had my back and did an incredible Job. I also hired him for an adoption process that was handled flawlessly. After 15 years of my professional relationship with John I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good family law attorney. Thank you John!!!!
