John Grecol
John Grecol did an excellent job for me. I was being threatened with a 16yr. old debt after my divorce which I knew I was not responsible for. Mr. Grecol made short work of this bottom feeder and I never heard from them again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

Amazing Attorney
John is a great attorney, I’m a property manager with over 26 buildings. Having an intelligent and well spoken attorney is very important to the longtirm success of the business I manage. John has all these attributes plus some, I’ve been working side by side with John for almost 5 years. I use his legal services for many different problems, and the results are always impeccable. From collections, evictions or just common law questions John has never let me down. I have used his services to make major policy changes that have greatly benefited the company I work for both legally and financially. I would highly recommend John Grecol to anyone seeking legal services, his professionalism is top notch and likable attitude make it a no brainer.

Compassionate and highly effective advocate
From the first consultation, John was a good listener and immediately grasped that we were in a difficult and delicate family dispute. His initial advice and passionate advocacy saw us through a year long dispute with a family member that ended to our satisfaction. At every step, he was conscious of the emotional and financial cost incurred and strived to minimize both. If the need for an attorney ever arose again, we wouldn't hesitate to hire John again.
