SO wIsh I would have called him first!!!
I called John after a disappointing result from my case using another attorney. He helped me hash out the pros and cons of an appeal and just gave me just the facts ( NO pressure) Once i gave him the green light his team went to work. It was the first time i felt like someone was finally fighting for me. John attached when he needed to and did not sweat the small stuff. I always got an answer to all my questions and never felt like i was bothering them. There was no hidden costs or fees and everything was upfront. The only thing I would have done different is chose him in the first place.... My girls and I thank you John and Samantha..

Excellent Legal Representation and Services
I have used John Kinney twice for legal services and have been extremely please with the results. John and his staff were very professional yet very compassionate and friendly. They were very responsive to my email questions and explained everything clearly. I would strongly recommend Kinney-Mason Law. Well done!!

Smooth process
In what could have been a long and emotional process, John and Wendi made it as smooth and easy as it could possibly be. I felt John listened to what I wanted in the long run, and was able to help me get there. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing help through divorce or any other legal issues.

Realtor
I hired John after a bad experience with a previous divorce attorney who I didn't believe carried forth my wishes. After receiving a referral from a friend, I scheduled a consultation with John Kinney. John took the time to initially meet with me and set clear expectations about what steps I could take to expedite the process. His communication was concise, caring, and frequent. I felt I had an advocate with John and Wendi, but they both made sure to curb my emotions when they knew it would negatively impact me. I am grateful for their help through this difficult transition.

Amazing Trust and Estate Planning Attorney
John Kinney made my husband and I feel so comfortable and safe working on our estate planning. This is a uncomfortable subject, as no one wants to think about death and the possibility of what would happen to their kids if they died. However, John and his team made us feel so incredibly comfortable and at ease during this process. Thanks to John, we can now rest assured that our kids are in good hands if god forbid anything ever happened to us. John and his team made this a quick and affordable process for us, and we would recommend him to anyone looking to protect their children and assets. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

Not enough stars to rate John Kinney
Everyone has a story. And a long one at that. What I wanted was for my custody battle to be over with as soon as possible to avoid further damage to my sanity and for the sake of my child. It was very speedy after I walked into John's office. He put a motion in for a hearing within 6 months the whole thing was over. He did a brilliant job during depositions and was more than prepared. I feel we got what we needed down for the record should any future instances arise. I could always reach John in a timely manner when I needed to consult with him. His paralegal Wendi is an angel. Kind and caring. Exceptional. The office has a great feel to it when you walk in the door. Not your typical law office. My case had pretty extreme emotional abuse going on. That, in court can be like fencing a ghost. John, his office, and his whole team are just all around brilliant. I wish I could tell you who not to hire as I have been down that road. But I can say John is the best lawyer I have had. I would hire him again. And plan to for future instances with the individual who is my ex should the occasion arise. Thank you John And to Wendi you are an exceptional special lady!

Divorce settlement
Divorce is a tough process and Mr. Kinney helped ease the process. His first meeting was comfortable and I left with a good understanding of what to expect. The set fee was nice to know cost upfront. He was easy to contact and available when needed. His staff was very pleasant and helpful. No voice mail and always someone available to answer questions. We wanted the divorce to go smoothly and quickly and he helped make this happen. The final decree was thorough and complete. The office atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. I would highly recommend Mr. Kinney.

Divorce in process
So far I have been very pleased with the service I have received from John Kinney and his staff. My divorce is not final at this point, but John listens to my concerns and has been good at explaining the process. I have received responses to my emails and phone calls within a short period of time.

Gets the job done!!!
After working with another lawyer previously for years on a continuous custody battle with ex wife; the "seasoned" lawyer at that time passively represented my case and I felt disappointed. I did my research and found John Kinney and soon had him work on my case for custody of my child. John dug deep to gather all facts and evidence and assertively represented me to turn my circumstances around help me win custody of my child. After only working with John for a short amount of time, he did a better job than that of my former lawyer. I am thankful for Mr. Kinney and would recommend him to anyone.

A great lawyer to have represent you
John has been a great lawyer for me and my family over the years. He is always there for me whenever I have a legal question or just need to sit down and really talk through things. He started out as a lawyer but has become a friend to us. He cares about our problem and does whatever he can to help. He listens and gives excellent advice. He gets the job done and done very well. His staff has always been very friendly and willing to help. My family and I love John and would highly recommend him.

John Kinney - top notch attorney
John Kinney is a top notch attorney, he took on my very complex divorce case and guided me at every turn to maximize my outcome. Razor sharp is the way I would describe his skill, at every step in the process he provided excellent council and keen insight to generate results. Divorce is a difficult time, John's experience and professionalism made this awful process bearable.

Great guy and attorney
John was great, I mean great. My Ex endorsed him as the best attorney, she was correct. I would like to think my case was special, but it wasn't, I truly think I had great-I mean great representation. I was terrible as a client and he stuck with me and feel like I won in no win situation. He did a good job-I'd hire him again, but I'll never get married again so call him, while you're pissed and want your soon to be ex to pay, he's going to use a clear mind and help. Thank you John

John Helped Me
John Kinney was very helpful in listening to my situation and advising a plan of action. He was empathetic to my case yet very honest about what to expect from the other side. In addition to helping me through the court process to a satisfactory custody agreement, he also counseled me on how to deal personally with my situation. I enjoyed working with John. He is very bright and has an extremely good understanding of family behavior and family law.

Good experience
John handled my divorce case. He and his office were responsive and kept me informed as to the process. There were times I was concerned about the direction we were taking, but it all came out well in the end, so leaving it up to the professionals worked. I have no problem recommending John as a divorce attorney.

Custody
John is a flat rate lawyer He tells you up front what it's going to cost to reach a certain point in your case ,unlike other firms that want you to keep throwing money in an account and can't even tell you how much more it's going to cost. John also knows what's important to the judge to win your case . He saves his client time ,money,and frustration. I wish I would have found him first. I send all my friends to him

Third time was the Charm
After spending tons of money on big firm attorneys who claim to look out for your best interest (but only rack up your bill), John was recommended to me. His reputation and respect from other Omaha attorneys was evident from the beginning of my case until the final outcome...which was EXACTLY what I wanted. If you are looking for an attorney who will win in the end, John is your guy. If you want to cry on your attorney's shoulder (while being billed at $400 per hour), he's not. Every other attorney I have met in this town will try to goad you into sending as many emails, phone calls and meeting requests just to drain your wallet for a crappy outcome. Having been through the courts three times for divorce, custody, personal property and support recalculation suits I have learned that our court system is dreadfully SLOW and it's the nature of the game. John is the best, and he won't play the attorney game of draining your pocket book like everyone else in this town. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Highly Recommended, Experienced, Compassionate
John and his team are amazing! I returned to John and his team for additional divorce issues. I was extremely worried and emotional over my situation due to years of emotional garbage. John and his team made me feel very comfortable. Every time I called they made me feel like I was the only client they had. On what was going to be my very 1st court appearance, I was sick to my stomach, the minute John walked in my stress diminished! I trust John and his staff completely! I know that he has my children and my best interest at heart!
