great attorney
John is an attorney with experience, drive, and extensive knowledge in criminal justice. When I was younger and making stupid decisions I unfortunately had a lot of experience with lawyers, and I can confidently say that John Hicks is by far the best one I ever had represent me. He has great integrity and honesty, I never had to worry about my case because if John said he was going to do something than I knew it was going to get done. He also is very honest he's not one of these attorneys who's going to tell you everything is fine when it's not you can tell he's truly passionate about his craft and he's a bit of a magic worker if I don't say so myself. If your looking for a great attorney look no further John Hicks is your guy!

Outstanding and Responsive!
I wished I had contacted John earlier so that we could have eliminated all the frustration we encountered in this matter. Thankfully he handled our dispute quickly and professionally. We especially appreciated the fact that John kept us informed of all the progress he made with our case. If in need of legal representation, I highly recommend John Hicks. He is a man of integrity who is committed to excellence!
