This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I met John Lauro in 2007 when I desperately needed a criminal attorney. John is an excellent lawyer and handled my case in the most well prepared and professional manner. He instilled confidence in me by always fighting tirelessly on my behalf and making sure I was treated fairly when it seemed the system wanted to bury me. John confronted both the NBA and the US Attorney for the Eastern District of NY, and handled all of the press like a pro to make sure the truth was exposed. John and the Lauro Firm have also handled several other cases for me dealing with restitution and a Civil matter in 2018. John Lauro and his firm are a FIRST CLASS operation from top to bottom, and return calls and email within minutes, particularly when I needed their expertise the most. John Lauro came highly recommended to me in 2007 and I am thankful that I followed the advice of other top lawyers to use the Lauro Firm.
