I am looking to serve the general legal needs of the residents of Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Land O Lakes, Lutz, Zephyrhills and surrounding areas. I don't chase ambulances. If you have slipped and fallen in the grocery store or been involved in a minor car accident, I am probably not who you are looking for. I only represent clients who have a genuine need for legal assistance. Often that involves divorce, child support, estate planning, wills and trusts, probate, small business issue, real estate issues. If you have a problem in one of these areas, I can help.

Superb Probate Atty
John handled my Florida Probate for me. I found him forthcoming with all the information I needed to understand what was going on and what to expect next. He was responsive to my questions in terms I could understand. I felt him to be of genuine integrity and of trustworthy work ethic. I would highly recommend him for estate and probate matters.

John Cullum went above and beyond!
I asked John to review an estate situation in another state. He took the time to listen to my matters and gave excellent input where needed. He not only took the time to help me through these difficult matters but took the time to find me a Lawyer in the area of the dispute. His calm personality helped me with these very imotional matters. I do not often take the time to do reviews however in this case I wanted to let people know John Cullum is different and because of this he is making a difference. If I need an attorney in the future it will deffinitely be Mr. Cullum.
