Abdo Law

Since 2011, John has been an “of counsel” associate with ABDO LAW while also maintaining his own law practice in Macomb County. He has been an asset to our firm for many years and has assisted us as co-counsel with numerous clients facing with serious felonies and misdemeanors. John is an exceptional lawyer and human being who values his relationships with his clients and is held in high esteem amongst his peers. ABDO LAW is proud to be associated with him.


"John’s recent accomplishments include dismissal of a felony assault charge upon motion to quash.  John held the preliminary examination and was able to discredit the testimony of the alleged victim, find weakness in the case and convince a Macomb County Circuit Court Judge to grant the dismissal."
