Genuine caring
To whom this may concern, I am so thrilled to write this letter of “praise” for John Clayton, who took such personal, attentive care of my case, and was laser-focused on every aspect, and at every crucial point. I was brutally attacked by a dog and almost lost my life!! That was so traumatic, of course and I needed to have a lawyer who would help me to get compensation and help me to get my life back as well as possible and to have all the medical care I needed, as well. I know that attorneys often have a bad rap—this was my first and I hope only adventure in the legal foray—John was so genteel and made sure that in every way I was pleased with the outcome of my case. In fact, “my case,” garnered a larger settlement than any of its kind, in the entire country! John can be very proud of the result and know that he very best to insure such a positive outcome! I remember he called me find out how every surgery and doctor appointment went. And he always called to ask how I was recovering. I know he cared, and in my vulnerable, state, that really warmed my heart. So, If you are looking for an attorney that takes “personal” care and is motivated by genuinely having your best interest at heart, don’t hesitate to retain him!! All my best, Stephanie H

Effortless Litigation & Great Results!
From the get-go Mr. Clayton walked me through the litigation process. He went through my options and when we decided to proceed with filing a lawsuit he kept me up to date with the different stages of litigation. I felt comfortable and confident with him representing me at my deposition, and at the various court appearances my case necessitated. I never felt out of the loop, and I was always able to get in touch with him or his office staff. At the end of the day Mr. Clayton was able to settle my case at a mediation, and I felt confident we had received the best outcome possible.
