Mr. Knappmann is very professional with exceptional knowledge and skills as an attorney. He was very responsive to my needs and kept me informed with the legal process in a way I (as a layperson) could easily understand. I'd highly recommend his services!

Mr. Knappmann kept me up to date on everything and was able to get me a deal without any points on my license. He was professional, prompt and prepared. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.

I thoroughly appreciate how John has handled my case. He was very responsive to my initial phone message, calling me back within 10 minutes, then spending the next 75 minutes discussing my case, which was all we needed. This quick response has not waivered, when I need to get a hold of John, he has been there for me.
Wherever necessary, John has asked the right questions, putting me very much at ease in what I had perceived as a bad situation. When we went to court John's knowledge and confidence showed, especially when he explained was happening. This occurred when the judge requested further personal history of mine, which was more so the judge could understand more about me then to apply the information negatively to my case. John predicted this would happen and it did, increasing the level of trust I already had in him. I am not familiar with how the legal system works, hiring John has allowed me to relax while I let him do the talking for me.
As the title says, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND John Knappmann and stand behind the Excellent ratings I gave him. His fees are very reasonable, he also organized, has a very realistic approach, and an excellent work ethic too. John's years of experience in the Tri-County area are certainly a plus too.

John is an outstanding attorney. His background both as an administration official in county government and as a former Asst. Prosecuting Attorney gives him a perspective and specialized knowledge that is unique among the lawyers in the area.
