Excellent
Mr. Floyd represented me on a serious charge of sexually assaulting a child 10 years ago. The allegations were lies, but I was scared having to prove my innocence. My case was dismissed after several months of going to court. I was glad I had Mr. Floyd as my lawyer. The prosecutor tried to bluff us several times during the process but Mr. Floyd kept asserting my case. I am so relieved

Probation on Federal Case
I was dealing with a federal fraud case and I don't know how I would have endured the whole journey without Mr. John Floyd. He stayed positive throughout and answered all my questions thoroughly. When dealing with a federal case, there's always almost some jail time involved, but John was able to help me get probation. I'm glad I chose John and his team to represent me. If you ever need a lawyer that will be honest with you and work relentlessly on your case, John is your guy.

What can I say, not enough room here.
John and Chris have been there for me from the very beginning. I have never been in a hopeless situation but this was it. Sexual Assault of a Child is serious and no one cares even if it's lies and just by word of mouth. John and Chris were there for me from the beginning, through the process. Covid made it worse and 2 years later after all the evidence was heard, I am a free man because of their persistance, knowledge of these cases and genuinly caring for their client. They answered any and all my questions and requests and tried to keep me at ease. I was truly blessed to have found them and I am back with my family. Thank you soo much guys!!
