Hire this man
John is excellent legal representation. If you want to win, hire this man. He's slicker than a toad's bottom.

Fantastic outcome and experience
I hired John to represent me in my DUI case and was more then pleased with the experience and outcome. He is friendly to work with and helps you throughout the whole process. He won my case and got me off with reduced charges.

Gets the job done
We hired Mr. Fotopoulos to represent a family member who was under investigation by local police. After contacting the office on a weekend, we were quickly able to chat with a member of his staff to explain our situation. John got in touch with us by the next morning and helped us through a very difficult situation. He was very forthcoming and told us exactly what to expect. I hope I never need another criminal defense attorney, but if I ever do, I would trust Mr. Fotopoulos to represent me.

Great Attorney.
John is a great attorney. I hired him about 10 times in the last 5 years. I have never lost a case. I would recommend him to everybody. He is very patient and will answer all your questions and will give you the real deal. He is fantastic.

He's good and good at what he does
I never in my life would think I had to go to court for something I was involved in. My family had John before and recommend that I see him. Boy was that great choice I made. John took care of everything for me. He treated if was like if was my big brother. He 100% made sure that everything was looked on and was my line of defense when came to court day. Thanks John for helping me out. You are the best!!

Extremely pleased.
I couldn't of hoped for a better outcome then what John provided. He was compassionate and understanding of my situation. If I was a prosecutor I wouldn't want him in my court room. Watching how well he defended me subdued my anxieties. I picked the right guy. John exceeded my expectations. I would use John again.
Posted by Cory | October 22, 2014
A great lawyer
John has been my lawyer for more than 3 years I don't know what I would do without him. He is great at what he does and he gets the job done! He takes his cases very seriously and cares for his clients. I would never trust anyone else to help me with my family case.
