John F. Lara is very professional
John Lara helped me to resolve an issue that I had at the Cook County Assessor’s office regarding my property tax exemption. John was helpful in explaining and simplification of the entire process. He even helped to aquire my exemptions three years retroactive. John was extremely knowlegeable, responsive and proactive regarding the situation. Most of all, he helped me to achieve my desired outcome and actually exceeded my expectations. Thank you John!

Excellent Lawyer
I was referred to Vince Mancini from another lawyer regarding a complicated legal issue with the Illinois Attorney General. I want to say I worked with John Lara on a daily basis. He was always out numbered three attorneys to one but fearlessly out performed them. John is aggressive when he’s needs to be and extremely competent as a lawyer. John always returned calls promptly and was good at reassuring me when I was feeling defeated. Special thanks to Mark Scarlato for his help during my deposition. Highly recommend.

I am so grateful for the work that John Lara and Fornaro Law did for me. They were quick to return any of my calls and answer any questions that i had. I would have been lost without them. Shannon is always so pleasant when you call or came in. Thank you all for helping me get through this difficult time in my life and I appreciate ALL the work your firm has done. John and Mark has truly been a blessing in closing out Booker Jordan Estate .
