The best in the business
I was referred to this firm for my needs and I am wholeheartedly impressed with my experience. John Ransom demonstrated the highest form of professionalism while also hearing me out every step of the way. It was incredibly easy to maintain communication with him. I was able to easily schedule calls to discuss any questions or concerns I had pertaining to my case. Throughout the entire process, John was honest and consistently demonstrated that he had my best interests at heart. I cannot recommend John Ransom enough! He is, without a doubt, the best in the business!

Professional & Efficient
Mr. Ransom & his entire team were very professional, kind, quick & efficient. We got our prenuptial agreement written up & executed through their office! I would absolutely refer any of my friends or family their way & will use them again, if we need to.

Way beyond my expectation
I had a very positive experience working with John regarding my prenup. He is pleasant and easy to work with. My fiance and I were very tight on time because he travels a lot. John understood my needs and requests and he truly worked with our schedule. He is focused, diligent and professional. I will recommend him to anyone who is in need of related legal advice.

An excellent family law attorney
John Ransom II helped me with a very complicated document. While he displayed a great fund of knowledge, but I was also impressed that he would seek the advice of others in his office if I or my case posed any questions that were beyond his experience. I can recommend him without reservations.

I will definitely use John again
John is a straightforward attorney who advises his clients to make the decisions and give the directions that are in their best interest. John is lawyer who makes us feel that we are his most important case even though he has others on his plate.

First Rate Attorney
John is an excellent attorney and helped me navigate through a difficult divorce. His advice was spot on and his attention to detail and focus on the needs of his client really made a difference. His support staff were responsive and professional and I felt that my needs and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. I would recommend John to anyone faced with a complicated or difficult divorce.

Ransom to the rescue
John was referred to me by a family friend. I needed advice on an atypical divorce. It involved common law, disability and short duration. John and his staff did an excellent job of researching and presenting me with my options. I felt his rates were representative of the level of professionalism and service. I was very satisfied with the outcome and was confident and informed throughout the entire process. I would recommend him for any family law matters.
