Our son was charged with murder while serving in a combat zone in Afghanistan in 2012. He was sentenced to 20 years in Fort Leavenworth Military prison in 2013.
This action taken against our son was devastating to say the least.
Shortly after, we began to look for a new Attorney and this is when we were led to John Maher. Everything changed from that point. We quickly seen this man has a heart to fight for our son, our hope was restored. Mr. Maher has shown us the true meaning of loyality. John has worked tirelessly in his battle seeking justice and truth of what really happened on that battlefield in 2012. We now know that the men killed were not innocent civilians as prosection claimed. Our only regret is that we did not hire John Maher before this court martial began. We feel our outcome would have been totally different. Today, we can sleep at night knowing that our son, Lt. Clint Lorance now has a man fighting for him that will never give up and never give in until Justice has been served. We are blessed!

My first attorney treated my case as an afterthought; I felt like a bother to her. But when I found Mr. Maher, I felt like I was finally heard, understood and represented! He gave my case his full attention so he could thoroughly understand the details; and then he crafted a response that yielded my best possible outcome. When I read what he wrote, I finally knew I was in good hands. I'm so thankful I found this attorney, and I give him my highest recommendation!

John Maher is the sharpest and best attorney I know. I have known John for over twenty-years and we served together in the Army Judge Advocate General's Corps. John brings a wealth of large national law firm and Senior Government Executive experience to bear in the handling of individual client matters. Supremely astute, doggedly hard working, and amiable all describe John's approach to the practice of law. When I seek advice on a complex issue - I go to John Maher. When I have friends and family members who have employment law or civil litigation needs, I send them to see John. I strongly endorse this attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. John is one of the best and most dedicated military attorneys I have worked with. John and I served together in the Army JAG Corps and John was very respected amongst his peers. I highly recommend this attorney.
