Highly Skilled, Courteous, and Professional
I was very pleased working with Mr. LaRue from the Verde law firm. Mr. LaRue understood my custody case and applied his experience and analytical thinking to maintain the edge. He listened carefully to all my questions and concerns and always responded promptly with great advice. Mr. LaRue was courteous and throughout the case made me feel that my case was his priority. I highly recommend Mr. LaRue and the Verde law firm without reservation.

Daughter's divorce
Mr. LaRue gave excellent advice and was very patient with my daughter as she was going through her divorce. All the paperwork was done in a prompt manner and his mediation skills were on point with the other attorney.

Understanding and honest lawyer
At the most stressful time of my life, John took the time to listen to my problems and helped work out an amicable settlement. He was diligent and honest and he completed the case in record time. I hope not to need him in this venue again but I will call him for other personal cases that arise.

Excellent. Hard worker. Really listens
Hired John to handle a dispute with an insurance company. I could not have asked for a better attorney. When all was said and done, he got more money for us than I thought we could get. I highly recommend John LaRue!

Honest and hardworking attorney!
John is a dedicated attorney. John doesn't wait for things to happen, but is a leader and takes action to have cases resolved favorably and efficiently. He cares about helping clients and isn't just after their money. I highly recommend him as he is one of the best.

Excellent Lawyer
i contacted John to help me recently with a personal legal matter. He was able to resolve my issue quickly, did not overcharge for his services, and was easy to reach when I needed his advice. I'll be returning to him in the future with any legal needs.
