Straight answers!
I love how John always gives his take on a situation without sugar coating!! Whether it's good or bad, he'll tell you exactly what you're looking at. He looked at my case, gave me options, and straight out told me his thoughts on each one. It was SO reassuring for me, and this is only one of the many reasons why I recommend him to friends and family!

1 of the most prominant attorneys in Kansas!
John Rapp has been a friend of mine since middle school, just recently I was in need of a criminal attorney. I contacted 2 different attorneys and spoke with both. I went with John and was very happy I did! John went straight to work for me, without me ever being contacted again the case was dismissed "lack of prosecution" John is truly a go getter, and is eager to go to work for you. I have several other acquaintances that have used him as well, so far I personally don't have nor have ever heard a negative review! Thank you John for all your hard work :)

Above and Beyond
John made things super easy for me. I was not in the best of positions and he was able to work out an advantageous resolution. He explained this to me in normal terms throughout the whole process and his team was fantastic as well. Well worth the investment.

Quality lawyer
Mr. Rapp has done a variety of work for our company Topline Steel Buildings. He is always prompt on his replies and his rates are very fair. Mr Rapp has built a reputation as being the attorney you want on your side when a problem arrises.

well worth the investment
Mr. Rapp was excellent in communicating to us our options, providing great information, and referring us to people in areas where he felt we could be served better by people with different areas of expertise. During a time of high stress Mr. Rapp made the situation much more tolerable and eased our minds!In the end the concerns about case were unfounded as he had assured us but between the initial time of the contact with law enforcement until the case was closed we were in good hands!
