Mr. Flynn helped me with my chapter 7. He and his assistant were absolutely the nicest and caring duo I have encountered in their profession. They actually listen and explain in detail if its needed. He was beyond fair on his price. All around great people if you their help.

I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Mr. Flynn had my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing fees waived and charged me less than his regular fee because of my very low income. He is a very kind and experienced Attorney. I was blessed to have found him and recommend him highly. A friend of mine consulted two other Attorneys for her Bankruptcy and they wanted to charge her double, and triple, what I paid, and she did not have any income. She paid twice what Mr. Flynn charged me.

Don't even bother looking for anyone else,I did and wasted my time.Mr. Flynn is amazing!
Where do I begin...I came to John with vicious and unwarranted lawsuits and judgements thrown at me and my business, along with the possibility of bankruptcy. John impressed me very much with his great knowledge and vast experience in many aspects of law. He is very informative with counsel while allowing me to make the decisions that I feel are right for me. Best of all, he is not a typical lawyer spouting legal jargon and remaining aloof with a client. He is friendly, listens to my concerns and translates all of the legal terms into everday language that helps me make the right decisions. Most assuredly, I am grateful he is on my side and not on the other guy's side.
