Review John Drake

  • Look no further!

    Posted by Spencer

    I hired John Drake during one of the most unsettling times of my life. In that darkness, John Drake was a light, a flame that set a fire the lamp of justice! Even when you're "in the right" of a situation, some of us can still have some dread of confrontations and court dates. John and his amazing staff eased that discomfort and became a strong voice when I felt beaten by my circumstances. Look no further for someone to provide the best service for you and your case, Mr. Drake is it.

    DUI charge reduced due to this brilliant attorney. I did exactly what he said l, he did not promise anything but assured me he would do what he could. I took his advice and did exactly what he asked of me. I am so happy with the results and can now move on from my mistake. I have spoken to a few people in law enforcement whom have advised me I lucky and must have had a great lawyer. Highly recommend him and and very impressed with the results.

    As soon as I walked in and met Mr. Drake I knew he was the lawyer for me. He was honest and straight forward throughout the whole process. I always felt like he was doing everything in his power to help me win my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney. He is simply the best there is.

    John was great, even for a last minute call from a procrastinator such as myself. He is professional, and I believe he has his clients' best interest in mind. I would recommend him to anyone as he provided with amazing service and legal advice.

    John is an awesome guy! He helped make it so I could serve my 3 days at the DUI education center. He helped to have my probation unsupervised due to my work schedule and also helped me with getting a restricted license since I paid all of my court costs and fees at court.

  • Professional and Personal Representation

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Jason

    John David Drake and his staff (Kellie Finney) are much more than a temporary one-time business relationship to me. I feel that my case was very personal and that is how I was treated from day one as a client from this professional firm, “personal.” The representation I received was not just thorough and with favorable outcome it was a learning experience in how the legal system works. The time that is taken to answer to my every question and the ability to cut through on a personal level gave me the utmost trust that this firm was in my corner.

    Thank you John David Drake and your skilled staff for your outstanding legal representation of my interest. I look forward to you being my family lawyer for any future needs that may arise and consider you and your staff not just my families representation, but also one of friends.

  • Excellent Experience

    I had the pleasure of working with John as I was the Executer of my grandmother's estate. Having no experience in this matter I hired John and found him to be both knowledgeable and great to work with. He and his staff made the process painless as they walked with me through each step. They were quick to answer any questions by email or phone. If the need for an attorney arises again I will not hesitate to contact John.

  • Not a man of his word.

    I hired Drake to represent my grandson on various charges. He did not call me or my husband as character witnesses as he had said he would. After my grandson was convicted and sent directly to jail to serve his full sentence, Mr. Drake told him to contact him in a few months and would be glad to file a petition to try and get him out early. He told me and my husband the same thing after we left the court room and stood and talked with him for several minutes. Four months passed and I called his office and left a message for him to call me with his secretary. After not hearing from him for a week, I called his office again and the secretary said to me "this is about getting your grandson out early, right?" And i said yes, it is. She said again that she would have him call. Two and a half months later and he has still not called us. He obviously is not a man of his word. I thought about offering him more money to petition the court but came to my senses and decided I did not want someone who could not be trusted.

  • Strong and Caring Attorney

    We contacted John Drake for assistance with a difficult legal issue involving our nephew. We are from out of town and an attorney friend of mine recommend we call John. He immediately checked into our issue and gave good, solid legal advice and assured us he would be able to help us. John Drake worked diligently on our case and skillfully negotiated the best possible outcome. He did not merely accept the first offer and settle; he kept at it until he got a resolution that was acceptable and will allow our nephew to move on with his life. John can be tough when he has to be. He is honest and straight forward, and through the whole process we knew he had our best interests in mind. He left our nephew with some solid advice about how to make the most of his life. I feel that I not only have met a very skilled attorney, but also I have made a friend for life. I hope our paths continue to cross during happier times. You absolutely cannot go wrong with John Drake.

    John David Drake’s response: “Hugh's nephew is a brilliant young man who had strayed from his path and he received a criminal charge. When his case was over, I left him with these words: "IF THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE, THEN YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT LIFE." The important thing for him to learn is that he is not the crime he was accused of, nor forever a criminal. All he has to do is: "MAKE THE NEXT RIGHT DECISION." Hopefully, he will. Thank you, Hugh and your family for your faith in me. - John Drake”
