John Maples is professional, courteous and caring. His office staff also went above and beyond during my case. I was involved in an automobile accident and had a lot of pain and suffering. Mr. Maples listened to all of my concerns and fought very hard to get me a settlement that was fair and reasonable for the injuries that I suffered.

I was referred by a former colleague of John Christopher Maples. And though Mr. Maples did Not take my case, he extended a loving and a supportive and a compassionate ear and helped me see the truth and logic with regards to my legal issue. If I were to attempt to describe Mr. Maples and his professionalism, I would use one word: Angelic. "(of a person) exceptionally beautiful, innocent, or kind." “Tell me who Your friends are, and I will tell You who You are." Though we're Not personal friends, I would stop my life so that his would continue. Attorneys are often disliked by the general public and in their ignorance, that is, I'm sure, for them, logical. I say, contact Mr. Maples and You will be proven wrong. Thank You, John Christopher Maples, for Your Devotion to Our Cause.

Friendly, Attentive and knowledgeable.
I contacted Mr. Maples on an Assault Case. Unfortunately, this was not an area his office focused on, but he did talk to me a bit about the case and referred me to a couple attorneys that specialized in that area with good results and reviews. I appreciated the fact that my concerns were addressed first, then he presented my options.
