CAr Accident case
My husband and I were hit by a car that ran a stop sign and we were hurt. The guys insurance who hit us wouldn't pay for our damage or medical bills. I hired Mr. Mets and he got me medical care and took care of the damage on our car. The doctor was nice and we are doing much better. He got us a great settlement and I'm very happy now that this is over. I recommend him and was happy with the work he did for us.

This attorney will fight for you !
John Metz is so aggressive. He told me that its in his blood to fight insurance companies and he was right. When we went to trial, my case wasn't big but I listened to him the entire time and he fought that insurance company lawyer so hard. It was great. He really is very fast thinking and just gave the insurance company attorney fits. And I won. I highly recommend John Metz.

my work comp lawyer
Mr. Matz has been handling my workers compensation case for about six months now. I tried to handle it myself but was getting nowhere with the insurance company. He found me a good doctor in the network and got me away from the insurance Dr. I am happy with him and the staff and I'm glad I hired him. Sylvia answers all my questions and I've met with Mr. metz several times and I'm confident I'm going to get a good result

Excellent Attorney. Quick results. Great at responding. Highly recommended
I don't write many reviews but when I do it is because it merits special attention. John Metz is an excellent attorney. He returned my calls. He initiated calls to me to see if I had any questions. He was able to get results better than I expected and much quicker than I expected. I would recommend John Metz to friends, family, and anyone who was seeking legal counsel that asked me. John has been a great resource and I truly appreciate all the help he was able to provide.

Car accident
I was in a car accident where some guy rear ended me and totaled my car. The insurance company was giving me the runaround. I hired Mr. Metz who settled my injury claim after the insurance company did not want to pay me anything. I was happy with his services and the money he got for me.

Great attorney
I can't say enough good things about John Metz. My case was denied by the insurance company and no lawyer would take my case. I worked with chemicals that caused me to get a bad skin condition and the chemicals went into my body and i got really sick. My joints hurt and my hands were cold all the time. Mr. Metz went to trial and WON. He got me money from when I was off work and the judge found for me and I got a big settlement. Mr. Metz never gave up on me and I really recommend this attorney.
