Seemed that I was always chasing him for answers and updates. Made promises he didn't keep. Didn't respond to my phone calls. Had to get another attorney to complete my legal issues.

On January 21, 2010 I was arrested for child abuse when I got into an argument with my baby's mother, while she was holding our child. She claimed that I hit her and since she was holding our baby the police came and arrested me for Child Abuse and Domestic Battery. Upon the recommendation of a former client, I immediately hired John Riordan. John immediately sent a letter to the State Attorney advising that under Florida Law the State could not support charges of Child Abuse. The State had no choice but to drop the felony charge and "No Filed" the Child Abuse charge and moved forward on the misdemeanor Domestic Battery. For over a year this case was fought hard and aggressive and ultimately, we were able to get the Domestic Battery charges dropped too.

I have used John for several issues over the last few years. Most recently John handled a civil lawsuit in Federal Court for my company. He skillfully negotiated a settlement that resolved the suit and saved my company.

John Riordan is the attorney I turn to first for all of my legal needs. If he feels that the issue at hand could be better handled by another attorney, he will be honest and forthcoming and give a possible recommendation. I trust him to have my best interests in mind.

John handled my divorce for me several years ago and he was exceptional. He communicated with me every step of the way. He was patient and explained things to me no matter how many times I asked the same question. He was knowledgeable about the law and ensured that my best interests were looked out for. John helped make the worst experience of my life a little more bearable. Since my divorce he has handled several other issues for me as well. Regardless of the issue, John did not judge me, he simply did his job exceptionally. I cannot say enough good things about John. I have an attorney for life.

Earlier this year I was arrested for a new charge while on probation for another charge. He always returned my calls and knew exactly how to handle my cases in the best way for me. I would recommend John to anyone who needs a criminal lawyer in Florida.

John knew what had to be done and did it. He kept me even more informed than was required. His personality, humor, and intelligence, along with his understanding of people made him very easy to work with.
