    John and his staff are very professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and caring people. Not knowing anything about Alabama laws my family and I went online looking for foreclosure attorney's and John Watts stood out from the other firms. We told them our situation and were advised on how to move forward. Being Minnesotans we did not realize how different the laws are in Alabama. For the past few weeks we have been advised on what to do and how to present ourselves with this legal matter. My family and I would like to thank you John Watts and staff for your expertise on foreclosure legalities. We would also like to thank you for your care and concerns while we went through this battle, and for sticking with us and seeing this thing through. We appreciate all the advice that was given, the explanations of legal documents, making sure we understood the documents and Alabama laws, who to contact and what to say and ask for at point of contact. We thank you for the acceleration of your knowledge base as we only had a short window of time. I feel your staff went above and beyond the call of duty in assisting my family. I believe if we had not contacted John Watts it would have been very detrimental to our family. Mr. Watts you and your staff are outstanding! I have family in Alabama and if at anytime anyone of them have legal matters in your expertise's, I am definitely referring them to your firm. We thank you that this matter was resolved in a timely manner and for staff availability. From the first call to the last call staff was available in a timely manner, messages were returned usually the same day, and there was never a time the attorney did not reach out to us to make sure everything was going smoothly. We are truly grateful for the team at John Watts, you are the Best.
    God Bless, and Thank you

    My review is lengthy but I want people to know if you find yourself in a situation like mine, there is help. I received a letter in the mail I was being sued by a debt collector. My heart just sank when I read what was happening. I went through many sleepless nights wondering what to do and how I would get myself out of the situation. There were letters from lawyers in my mailbox offering help and I started to call them for help but I thought it was strange they knew what was happening to me. I thought could this be a scam? I decided to search on Google the contents of my collection letter and Attorney John Watts website came up with all the information I was looking for. I started reading everything he had listed and even did a YouTube search on him and found much more information. After my research, I decided to fill out the Contact Info form on Attorney Watts website. I was contacted by John with 1 hour!!!! Attorney John Watts and I had a phone call that afternoon and discussed my situation and I cannot tell you how relieved I was after our conversation. I felt like a ton of bricks were lifted off my shoulders!! We ended the phone call with a plan and I actually felt positive for the first time in a long time. I’ve never worried about my case, John and his staff always sent me updates to make sure I knew everything that was happening with my case. I’m happy to say it was a positive outcome and I’m very relieved all of this is over! I would recommend John to anyone. He is so willing to help you in any way he can. He treats you like a friend, not like a client.

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “JP, Thank you for sharing your experience in your review. What you described about the fear and sleepless nights -- that's exactly what these debt buyers want you to experience so that you feel it is all hopeless and you give up. I'm so glad you did not do that but instead investigated your options. We never want someone to take anything on blind faith but instead to discovery your options by investigating and doing your due diligence. We do our best to update our clients frequently and it is nice to know that this was helpful to you. Thank you for your recommendation and your review and most importantly for trusting us to help you in this difficult situation. Thanks again! John Watts”

    When frustration and unbelief became a part of my everyday life for about six months in 2015 because of a debt collections issue, Mr. John Watts helped me fight a giant, and help restore me with a peace of mind by reassuring me that not all was lost that even I could make a stand against a giant. I was blessed to have an excellent attorney such as Mr. Watts. He is a phenomenal attorney, who will go that extra mile to help. I was very impressed with the excellent service from start to finish.

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “Carrie, Thank you for the review! We were proud to stand by as you faced down the giant -- these big companies think they can run over any consumer. But the great thing about court is it levels the playing field. You did a great job standing up to these guys. Thank you for letting us help you and thank you for your kind words... John Watts”

    I ran across John's YouTube channel while researching my options when I was sued by Asset Acceptance. I decided to contact him instead of trying to fight this on my own. The entire staff was very helpful! John advised me as to what my options were. The case was disputed and thrown out. Asset Acceptance failed to remove the account from my credit report. John then represented me to sue them, and we settled out of court for a very fair amount! I cannot say enough good about the treatment I have received in all of this. I was very nervous about the whole thing to start with. John, and his staff honestly care about their clients and make you feel relaxed about the legal process. If you need help, John is definitely the attorney you want!

Glad the YouTube videos were helpful and always great to hear our staff helped you out -- they are a wonderful part of our team approach. We do enjoy fighting the debt buyers and suing them for money damages. :) We appreciate you letting us represent you -- you stood up to these guys and that will make them think about this in the future when they are planning on breaking the law in Alabama. Thank you again for the very nice review and so happy that you felt comfortable with us at your side. John Watts”

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “Thanks Michael -- we sure enjoyed representing you and appreciate you being willing to stand up and fight back against abusive companies. So often these companies think they can destroy your credit with false credit reporting -- when they run into people like you it causes them to re-evaluate it. You messed up their "bottom line" approach. :) Thanks for letting us help you in your fight against false credit reporting and thank you for the kind comments you said about us. Best wishes my friend.... John Watts”

    I was being sued for a credit card debt that should have been covered by a sick and accident insurance, which the credit card company denied. Mr Watts is not only a great attorney, he is a great, down to earth , kind hearted man! He went above and beyond what is required to show these collectors they are wrong. I never even had to meet him in the office. But I do plan to one day soon to shake his hand and let him know how much I appreciate his help. During the time he was taking care of these things for me, my daughter was having health problems and seizures, I mentioned to him that it would be hard for me to leave her to go fight this. He took care of everything and everytime I spoke with him he asked how she was doing. That really means a lot to a person going through these things. He has so much concern for you and your family, he seems more like a family member to you. Most attorneys don't seem to have that type contact and thoughtfulness to you when you are dealing with them. All this makes everything so much easier on a person knowing that the person you are depending on to help you at a hard time in your life, has that much thoughtfulness and care about your whole family. And yes knows what he is doing and takes care of the business ! I highly recommend Mr Watts ! But not only Mr Watts, but his complete staff goes out of their way to help you and make you feel like they are part of your family. Some things I wasn't so great on downloading on my email, so they helped with it and sent links that my smartphone would open for me!

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “Don, Thank you for the kind review and the detail you put into it. Being sued is stressful enough, then add to it not owing the debt, and having medical issues all at the same time. You did great and stuck to your guns which allowed us to help you so thank you for doing that. It was a pleasure representing you. Glad to hear Carolyn and Melissia were helpful to you -- technology is great except when it doesn't work! They are very good about finding alternative ways to get information out including the good old fashioned US Mail. :) Thank you again for letting us help you and may 2016 be a great year for you and your family! John Watts”

    I found Mr. John Watts on YouTube. I was laid off from my job of 15 years and it took several months for me to find a new job. The new job came with a very substantial pay cut so I am no longer able to pay my mortgage. Mr. Watts made 4 DVDs available to me, for free, regarding all the options available to me and how I should approach and work with my mortgage company. He also talked with me over the phone concerning this, for free!! I feel much more confident now and know I can call on him if I need to during this process. He is a very caring and kind person with extensive knowledge! I would recommend him to anyone!!

    I have watched some of his video's on youtube more than once. Which I decided to contact his office on a personal matter that I was ready to give up on. The consultation over the phone with Mr. Watts gave me the confidence that I could fight this on my own.
    Mr Watts and his staff are some of the most caring and thoughtful people that I know.

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “It's always nice to know someone watches the videos we put out.... :) They are not nearly as good as the funny cat videos but maybe in their own way they can be useful.... Glad they were helpful in your situation.. I'm thinking that this was a consultation about a debt collector (debt buyer) lawsuit which can be sometimes handled on your own. Fighting a debt buyer lawsuit is one of your five options and it is a valid option for a number of folks. Thank you for the kind words especially about Melissia and Carolyn -- we are very proud of them as they contribute so much to making our clients feel very cared for and informed. Best wishes on your case and let us know how it turns out! John Watts”

    December 2015
    Received a letter in the mail stating I was being sued for $30,000.
    A few days later I got another letter from Mr. John Watts, saying he would like to talk with me about what options were available
    to me. So we got in touch by phone, I live in Florida and case is in Cullman County, Alabama. He knew in advance that we were unable to afford a lawyer and during our conversation I was treated with the respect and dignity as if I were a wealthy client.
    We talked about my options and he gave me his advice which I am going to follow to a 'T'.
    Thank you Mr John Watts, Attorney at Law

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “Wayne, Thank you for your nice review. Being sued is never fun and especially when we are going through hard times and money is tight. We realize not everyone is in a position to hire a lawyer. But I've certainly had people give me advice and options even when I could not hire them professionally so I try and give back in the same way. I hope that things are going better and thank you again for your kind words. John Watts”

    When a family member encountered a problem with their mortgage lender, I searched the internet for some advice applicable to the situation.

    I found the Watts & Herring website, and the many exceptionally informative articles and videos that Mr. Watts has developed. He has, obviously, put a tremendous amount of time and effort towards educating us about the perils and pitfalls one may encounter in dealing with some lenders, as well as rights and remedies available to us. The gut feeling I developed was that "this is a guy who really does wants to help others". No kidding - this is not a paid political advertisement - that was exactly my feeling.

    My feeling was reinforced after calling his office and discussing the situation troubling me with Carolyn. She was warm and welcoming, provided me with helpful information, and then brought the matter to Mr. Watts’ attention in case further action was necessary.

    Would you like to know what John Watts' firm didn’t do? They did not tell me “sure, you need to retain us, sign this contract with us right away”. In fact, they didn’t charge me a dime for the help provided.

    If I should need to go further with this situation, there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever to whom I would turn - John Watts. A legal battle would not be fun, but I’d sleep a lot better knowing Mr Watts was leading us through it.

    John Griffin Watts’s response: “Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I appreciate what you said. We know that facing mortgage issues can be very scary (its our house) and frustrating as there is so much mis-information out there. I'm glad you found the videos/articles to be helpful. So glad to hear you had a great experience with Carolyn -- she is very caring and helpful. I'm not sure how she does it as she stays on the phone all day long but I've decided not to ask any questions. :) About money -- we run a for profit lawfirm so we do need to make money to pay salaries, insurance, etc. but we only want folks to pay us money if that is in their best interest. Because we know we tell folks "You don't need to hire us now" when that is true -- it gives us confidence to tell people "You do need to hire a lawyer right now" when that is true. Hope you don't need us but if you do, Carolyn will be waiting for your call. :) Thanks so much for the kind review and best wishes! John Watts”
