Wonderful Lawyer!
My daughter and I were in a traumatic 4 car accident and suffered physical injury and mental anguish. John and his assistant, Helene, came highly recommended and working with them exceeded our expectations. Throughout the lengthy recovery process they worked with us, our medical providers, and insurance company to ensure that we received the best care and service. John and Helene made a harrowing and complicated experience manageable, which I am very grateful for. They should be your 1st call if you are in need of representation due to an injury.

I was concerned hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
I had a personal injury and needed legal advice and assistance. After seeing all the advertisements and the unflattering commentary about Personal Injury Attorneys I was very cautious. I needed coverage for my medical bills and had no desire to get rich. John pur me at ease from the beginning. He said in no uncertain terms that if I was there to get rich he would not represent me. Instead John and his excellent assistant Helene were professional and treated me as if I was their only case. Their guidance through complicated insurance claims and negotiations with the medical billing offices allowed me to concentrate on recovering from my injury. No I did not get rich. but my claim was effectively and reasonably resolved and I could not have made it with out John and Helene. Anyone seeking dedicated and professional legal representation, Willis Law will be an excellent choice!

Exemplary Law Firm
Mr. Willis managed my case with effectiveness, efficiency, and with kindness. After the initial contact, Mr. Willis and his secretary, Helene, made it so that I never had to make another phone call or supply any further information. They relieved my stress and worry immediately, and that continued throughout to the conclusion of my case. Both Mr. Willis and Helene were accessible, caring, and responded to my questions quickly. I never had any doubt that they knew me and my case thoroughly. They were professional and kind, and I left any encounter with them feeling uplifted. In summary, I highly recommend Willis Law, P.A. for legal counsel. It is a relief to find a lawyer who is trustworthy, skilled, hardworking, and caring.

We can honestly say that I've never felt more passionate about recommending anyone EVER!!!! John Willis is not only fair and honest (a rare character trait these days) He keeps looking for ways to recover what is right fully owed to you, even after you have long given up. He is amazing, BRILLIANT, compassionate, creative and tireless. He is easy to talk to you, takes his time to explain things so you're comfortable with the information and fully understand it. He has truly become a trusted friend during this unfavorable process. I'm so grateful for him in our lives during a difficult time, its been a huge comfort to know he was coaching our team. John is a good family man with great values and it spills over into his interactions with his clients. I would recommend him in a heartbeat and I promise you will feel the same way when the process is over. "PLAIN AND SIMPLE, HE'S A GOOD GUY!"

I have found John to be the most professional attorney exibiting legal skills and integrity beyond my expectations. He handled my son's PI case with great results also. My case was water damage, mold and permanent injury. He researched and argued for my case on a monthly basis, it seemed, for over 3 years. Anything that was thrown at us by the most unprofessional defense attorneys, he was able to take before the judge and resolve the problem. It was a difficult case but he maintained ethical decisionmaking and etiquette throughout. He was always well prepared, on time and responsive. John is well-respected in the community. He was very supportive with me in a positive but practical manner. John was always looking for the best ways to resolve the case. His negotiating skills are phenomenal. He has strength that won't back down to anyone. I believe that all his fine qualities, his professionalism, integrity, strength, legal knowlege and ability to project that knowlege clearly - written and verbal - are the reasons he is so successful. I am proud to have had John Willis represent me. I am pleased with the settlement he negotiated. I would recommend John to represent any case, if he takes it he will do his best. And that is great!!!

Car accident Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I strongly endorse this lawyer's work. It is all too common today to hear horror stories about unethical, unprofessional lawyers. John A. Willis, on the other hand, exemplifies professionalism as a hord-working, "on your side" type advocate. Mr. Willis carefully evaluates each case that presents itself to his office to determine whether he can help the client. If so, he will continue with representation. If not, he will advise the client and not try to make a buck on a friviulous claim. Throughout representation, Mr. Willis will continue to advocate for his clients undertaking whatever needs to be accomplished throughout discovery, i.e. depositions, written requests, etc. Should his cases not resolve before trial, he will continue with his client to trial and not refer the client out for another lawyer to handle. As an attorney I have indeed put my faith in John Willis for an injury that me and my family sustained. Of course, I would do it again."
Personal injury Attorney | May 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have personally referred family members to this attorney and they were extemely pleased with his services and the outcome of their case. Mr. Willis' representation of a child who sustained severe injuries as well as the compassion and patience he exhibited, are characteristics which I would consider when choosing an attorney. I would highly recommend Mr. Willis for representation in any and all personal injury cases."
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer's work. John Willis is a lawyer with integrity who does what is necessary to get the best results for his client. I would recommend John to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney with in-depth experience in this area."
