Attorney John Evans
I hired Attorney John Evans to defend my Home health Agency accused of Medicaid fraud allegations. He gave my case his fullest attention and succeeded in getting my case resolved, thus, saving my company from getting closed down. His excellent expertise in Medicaid fraud allegations saved my company. We’re forever thankful to him. I highly recommend him to anyone or any healthcare company accused of Medicaid fraud. He will save your company and secure your freedom. Again Thank you Attorney John Evans!

One of the hardest decisions to make in tough situations is when you have to choose an attorney to represent you. Your livelihood and reputation are at the edge and the outcomes of the case may affect the rest of your life. I choose Luke Evans to represent my case that involved complex circumstances, in which horrible allegations were made against me. Mr. Evans extensive experience in Federal and criminal law played a decisive role in the positive outcome of my case. Mr. Evans thoroughly studied all evidences and strategically setup effective plans and held meetings with the government to negotiate my case in order to place me in a safe position. His approach not only avoided a trial, but also resulted in all charges being dropped. This outcome exceeded even my expectations as to what I had wished. I personally and enthusiastically recommend Luke Evans to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Service Was Excellent
From the moment I spoke with Mr. Evans in March 2019 over the phone, I was comfortable feeling I picked the correct firm for the job.. Once I met Mr. Evans face time face, I was greeted with a warm and pleasant staff upon arrival until departure.. During the process of my case Nicole was always pleasant and reassuring that Mr. Evans would not only get my messages but he would get back with me ASAP and he always did.. Mr. Evans was very professional, knowledgeable, prompt and made sure I understood every dynamic of my case.. At the time when I came to Luke.I just had major surgery. The one thing that stood out was his kindness and concern to make sure I got myself back healthy and let him deal with the case in the beginning.. Looking at how my case started in the and what my ending turned out.. I am blessed to have chosen a wonderful firm... Lawyer Mr. Luke Evans

DO NOT HIRE ANOTHER ATTORNEY WITHOUT SPEAKING TO LUKE
My life changed suddenly when I received a call that my company had been the target of a federal investigation. Should I worry? Other (prominent) lawyers said, "nah, they will let you know if you need to be concerned." Thank God I did not take that advice, I chose to get another opinion from Mr. Luke Evans and from the moment of our first conversation Mr. Evans advised me on how to proceed while he assessed the severity of my position. Thanks to Luke's quick and wise decisions due to his experience with the federal government my position changed and my sanity was saved. Me and my family will be forever be grateful for God answering our prayers and leading us to Luke Evans. I am sure that you do not take your freedom lightly, neither will Luke. Mr. Evans operates with the highest level of professionalism that I have experienced in business and also helped to put me at ease through this traumatic process. Do not proceed with another attorney without talking to Luke Evans! You will leave the same review that I have. God Bless Luke Evans!

Federal Trial: Not Guilty Verdict
Luke Evans and Paul Bruno represented me in a 5 count Federal indictment for Bank Fraud and aiding & abetting. I can tell you from first hand knowledge that their knowledge of the law was astonishing....they took me under their wing, answered any questions I had and vigorously defended me at trial. I can tell you I actually felt at ease the night prior to trial as I knew they had my back and would not let the government walk all over me. If you ever need representation these are your guys. Watching these 2 at trial was nothing but amazing as they chopped away at the governments case. In the end I was found Not Guilty on all charges and for the 1st time in many years I was able to wake up and enjoy life again without having the stress of the Federal Government wanting to incarcerate me for many years.

Excellent representation!
If you’re dealing with a complicated custody situation, Luke Evans is THE choice! My first attorney not only misled me, but he was also remarkably incompetent. I had no idea the damage he had caused until I found Luke. His level of competency and expertise is unmatched when it comes to family law. He was relentless as fighting for my rights as a father. Luke was able to look at the big picture and find issues that no other attorney found for me. He was compassionate and understanding about my struggles, but he was also able to take emotions out of the picture and help with decisions that were in the best interests of my son. I definitely had to pay more for Luke’s representation than past attorney, but I can confidently say that he was worth every penny!

Professional
Mr. Evans is a very professional detail oriented attorney. He came highly recommended and he went well beyond my expectations. He was very thorough, and worked diligently on my case. He always kept me informed on what to expect, and what he was working with, on or for. I appreciated everything that Mr. Evans had to offer. He encouraged me constantly when I felt like giving up. His team rallied behind me when I was at my lowest. He always made a point to contact me just to let me know if there were any or no updates. He always went above and beyond expectations. Even after my trial was over and my innocence was proven, Mr. Evans still reaches out to check to see how I'm holding up and how things are going on in my life. What an attorney, person and a just good hearted person is he. Still caring about his clients after the fact. He did more than just represent me, He built a relationship with me, and for that, I'm thankful!

Thanks Luke for a great job representing me!
I had a short term disability case that Luke Evans represented me in. He and his assistant, Heather, are very professional and went above and beyond to make sure I was paid for the time frame which the doctor recommended. I would and will recommend him to anyone who is in need of services and expertise like his! Thanks Luke & Heather for your help and support!

Terrible experience
Hired Luke for a difficult family case. Even though the retainer was much higher than other attorneys it seemed like a good investment. However once paid I was pawned off on another attorney. Then the firm got a big murder case, I was pawned off on another attorney. Finally, I was pawned off on a 3rd attorney. Luke promised he would be the one showing up for court. He didn't show and the attorney representing me was a rookie on his first case. The results were exactly what you would expect. Do not hire Luke unless your case is big enough to make the news. He simply won't care and pawn you off on others.
