Excellent Lawyer
I had personal injury case with John, and he was excellent in representing me. I am very satisfied with the result/outcome of the case. He is extremely trustworthy, personable, and a great person who cares about his work with helping others. His knowledge of the legal system and explaining it in terms I was able to understand really made working with him a great experience.

john f medler jr review
my daughter and i hired john to represent her after she had been in a car accident. he was very informative and was always nice and pleasant to work with. he always kept us up to date on the case and was always willing to meet with us anytime to discuss it. he is one of the nicest people that i have met in my life, and i would hire him again if i ever need a lawyer. we won our case and were very satisfied with the results. his knowledge with all the legal documents and all the ins and outs of the judicial system impressed us very much. i don't know how he remembers all that stuff!

bad faith lawsuit
John's thorough investigation uncovered video evidence that confirmed the facts of our case, clarifying full responsibility and supporting our case. He was sensitive yet professional, diligent, and timely in his work.

From a colleague, client and friend
John has the uncanny ability to combine a dogged, relentless plaintiff mentality, with a keen insight for subtle but powerful legal argument, along with a jolly 'bedside manner' befitting Marcus Welby, MD. Truly a powerful combination, which resulted, in a recent difficult matter, an exemplary and stunningly quick resolution for the clients.

Truly the best lawyer
I was nervous meeting with a personal injury lawyer because I did not know what to expect. But once I met with John for the first time, I immediately felt at ease talking with him about my situation. John took the time to really listen, learn about me and discuss the steps. I truly feel he always had my best interest at heart. Throughout the entire process John consistently kept me in the loop, and was available to speak or meet with me whenever needed. John was able to quickly settle my case. I very highly recommend him as a personal injury lawyer.

John Medler review
John Medler resolved my personal injury case wherein my rotator cuff was torn in a MVA. He vigorously pursued an equitable settlement on my behalf, in spite of a non-cooperative defendant. I would recommend Mr Medler to anyone with a personal injury claim

John Medler helped my family
When my son was injured, John Medler took our case and was able to get a large settlement very quickly. I was nervous in the beginning because I had never obtained legal counsel before — but my anxiety was quickly erased after I met with John. With his abundance of legal knowledge and enthusiastic personality, John put my concerns to rest. John was very thorough with every aspect of my case — John took care of everything. I would highly recommend.

An Excellent Experience
i had an excellent experience working with John on my auto accident case. He is very knowledgeable and I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. John set clear expectations of the process and gave me a very accurate estimate of the potential settlement. He was tenacious going after the insurance company's attorney and we settled quickly. I was very pleased with John's work and highly recommend his servcies.

ONE YOU CAN DEPEND ON
In my slip and fall gas that caused a back injury that later required me to have surgery, Mr. Medler made sure that all t's were crossed and the i's dotted. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Not only did he cover all area's in question the respect he has for his clients and assuring them that he is there 100% of the way is more then one can expect. I would reccommend him to everyone who needs assistance in any type of case.
