In our initial consultation, I told John what I wanted from this case and his wheels started turning. He said then what he felt he could do for me. In numerous other interactions, he would fill me in and update my status. At the end of the day, he got me exactly what he thought and I wanted. I see all of this “doesn’t call me back” jargon and though I did have an experience or two like that, I knew that he would get with me when he needed to. Sometimes he just doesn’t have what you’re looking for at the moment and I realized that. I know how stressful being a defendant is in a criminal case, you would wish you could chat with your attorney 24/7 because the unknown is brutal, but sometimes there isn’t anything to talk about at the moment! God willing I never have to be in that situation again, but my first contact will without a doubt be John. Thanks again man, you’re a rockstar!

Works in your favor!!
John Toth was able to get my case dismissed also before the case was bound over he was able to suspend the court cost and fines , so for a felony 5 and 3 misdemeanor charges, I walked away with 2 misdemeanor convictions and no fines! Given my track record I wasn't expecting that . He really does do his job well !!!

Negligent lawyer
This lawyer does not answer calls or return them. He lied and said he filed paperwork and never did. Court date has been pushed back and he never notified me.
