This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I would recommend JD to anyone in town.
As I approached a certification process for another profession, it came to light that some youthful mistakes previously believed expunged were, in fact, still on my record. Needing to resolve this in a timely manner, I met with JD who immediately started me on the path of paperwork collection, notarization of documents, and all the other fun tasks involved in the expungement of an old case. While I panicked, JD remained calm and professional throughout the process. His supportive demeanor and expedient handling of my case are more than enough reason for me to recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

Excellent Appellate Attorney
The firm that I work with has used John Douglas on a number of different appellate matters and found his work to be exceptional. His analytical skills are very good and he has a strong work ethic. I would recommend him to anyone needing an appellate attorney.

Professional and timely legal advice
In July 2012, I was given a ticket for speeding in St. Clair County, AL. I contacted JD Lloyd to explain to me all of my legal options. With his assistance and counsel, I was able to secure a deferred prosecution program in order to dispose of this speeding ticket and have it excluded from my permanent record. JD Lloyd was professional and timely with his legal advice. I would recommend JD Lloyd for any other defense needs.
