John did a great job on my case. I hit a fiber optic overhead wire that was very serious and was handed a careless driver ticket. He got it reduced to a violation that was acceptable to my company's insurance . I can continue to work and for that I am very grateful .

The person to call when your future and freedom are at stake.
John is the man to call when you find yourself or your loved ones in need of legal advice. He was not only truly compassionate, he made all my options very clear to me. He was able to quickly address all my concerns and made me and my family feel confident that we were not alone in our moment of need. He was very generous with a free consultation. Even let me know what I could do on my own to save on my lawyer expenses. John is obviously became a lawyer because he cares about people and wants to help them. He even checked in to see how everything was going after my issues were solved and gave me advice that saved me further problems. If you find yourself or a loved one in need of good legal counsel John is the Man to call. He will be there for you in your time of need.

“I was not speeding, I was qualifying!”
One could say I was driven to seek legal advice from John Neidig, P.C. - Criminal Defense Attorney. Having known John for over 20+ years both professionally and personally it was a bit embarrassing to have to make this call. I couldn’t afford one more driving citation. One more and I was sure to lose my driving privileges. Owning my own business, that was not an option. So, I sucked it up and made the call. John I really need your help. I ended up with 4 speeding citations in one day, on the same street! I am so screwed! A situation we both laugh at today, due to John Neidig’s expertise and knowledge in the legal system and laws involving my case. Representation for this matter was absolutely incredible. How you managed to have those tickets dropped due to a technicality was sheer genius. We spent more time trying to find a parking spot than we did in the court room. John, you are one of the best Criminal Attorneys’ I know. I appreciate the fact you never sugar coat the matters at hand always informing me of what the potential outcomes may be and the course of action you intend to take. The services you have provided over the years are exceptional, bar none. Thank you for your quick response, exceptional service and for being a great friend and still keeping me as your client. “You’re the best John”. Michael

Best Lawyer on the planet!!
John Nedig has represented me on several matters. He and his staff are very professional and kept me updated on all aspects of the trials. The results were awesome! Perry Mason's got nothing on him. I would highly recommend John for any traffic, DUII or criminal matters you have.

Just like the jaws of life!
Exceptional!  I highly recommend John Neidig.  I was in a bad spot, and he was so helpful, informative and kind.  The first consult was free, and after I hired him, he and his staff could not have been better.  I understand why he has such a great reputation. I was kept informed every step of the way.  He explained all my options really well, and I didn’t feel so powerless with him.  His experience and his knowledge were there to help me.  He was available whenever I had a question, and made sure I was informed and comfortable with the process.  I believe my outcome was better because of John Neidig.  If you feel trapped in a situation, he’s like the ‘jaws-of-life.”  Wonderful!

Review for attorney John W Neidig
John Neidig is a excellent attorney and a very cool guy as well! I'm very happy with his performance and the outcome of my case because of it. Very good at his profession and his staff is very good to work with too. He is easy to get ahold of and very informative of everything you might need to know about. Also he lends excellent advice and in my opinion is very affordable. He also followed up with me after my case was over to see if I wanted help getting my record cleared. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a attorney!

Traffic camera / red light violation
I am very satisfied with John Neidig's work. Oregon appears one of few states where ticket issued by traffic camera is a moving violation. Citation was dismissed in exchange for taking 4 hour NTSI online training course.

The best council. Easy to speak with & non Judge mental.
John is very professional and non judge mental. He is easy to speak with and easy to understand. It was obvious that he cares very much about every client. I was surprised to see such passion for justice. I do not believe anyone could have given more attention to details or worked any harder to give me the best council. I would turn to no one else for legal advice.

He saved the day!
John Neidig really saved the day for me! A situation arose regarding my past. I had previously been involved with an organization which, later, got into big trouble. Many people were arrested in association with this case. I wasn't sure if I was on the list, and, I could not get any facts on my own. I had no idea what would or could happen, or, what my options were. I was totally in the dark and afraid. When John Neidig stepped in, he gave me all of the information I needed, guided me through many obstacles and road blocks, and he extended himself beyond my expectation. He was very pragmatic, strategic, resourceful and also caring. This man is a treasure - A rare combination of intelligence and heart.

A true professional
In the spring of 1999, I was working out of state and had left my home in the care of two "housesitters". I was soon notified that there had been some sort of a police incident at my home and that I was being blamed for it. In spite of my having never been arrested and a total lack of any evidence against me, the Clackamas County D.A.s office decided to prosecute me. After my returning to the state, I was arrested for the first time in my life, and charged with 4 serious felonies-it was the worst ordeal of my entire life! Thanks to Johns insight and belief in me, and his perserverance in sticking with this case for over six years, the charges against me were eventually dismissed. This was a six and a half year nightmare, myself and my family are forever grateful for Johns insight and his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients.

Response from John Neidig October 30, 2012
William, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. Your case was challenging because it involved a number of unique issues. I always enjoy going toe-to-toe with the District Attorney's Office and this case certainly was a knock-down drag out fight. The highlight of your case was have the opportunity to grill a really stupid cop on the witness stand. Also, thank you for having confidence in me and allowing me to take this to trial rather than taking the 'easy way out' by accepting a bad plea deal. My staff and I enjoyed working for you and getting to know you. John Neidig

John Neidig saved my life
In late April of 2004 I found myself in the worst situation imaginable, Incarcerated in Multnomah county jail, charged with murder for shooting my best friend to death with no bail possible and little to no hope in sight. Immediately upon retaining John as council that window of hope began to widen immediately. Communication was great and he worked very closely with me and my family to eventually get me bailed out and put on house arrest awaiting trial. While on house arrest I felt that all matters regarding my case were being taken care of perfectly by John and his law office. This was very important to me considering I had a lot to deal with mentally preparing for trial and helped me feel at ease during a time that I was facing life in prison and I really appreciated it. During trial John was there for me 100% from the beginning to end, I entrusted John with my life and because of his hard work and dedication to me and my family in Feb 2007 I made history in Portland OR, by being acquitted on the charge of Murder and walking out of that courtroom a free man. I had dealt with other lawyers in the past, but John made them all seem amateurish, his level of professionalism and knowledge within the legal realm are second to none in my opinion. Heres a link to my interview with Fox 12 from right after my acquittal. In the video you can see a clip of John helping and comforting me while at the lowest point in my life during the infancy stage of my case. Ive since talked to John a handful of times but never actually had the opportunity to really thank him for literally saving my life, I honestly cant thank him enough but everyday I wake up in my own bed as a free man I'm very appreciative for the hard work that he and his law offices did for me, i'll never forget it and recommend him to everyone I know.

Great Lawyer
John actually took my call on a Friday night and took my case over the phone. He immediately represented me and gave me peace of mind that night without even knowing if he would be paid for it. John did everything he said he would do and looking back I'm glad I made the call. If you get into trouble and come across this review I can only say in my experience John is the one to call.

Response from John Neidig October 30, 2012
Thank you for the kind review even though I don't know who posted this. I strive to make myself available evenings and on the weekends for emergency situations. Realizing that being charged with a crime is one of the most traumatic events anyone can experience, I work hard for all my clients and try to make them feel confident, calm and informed. John Neidig

Never took any of my calls
John Neidig represented me a few years ago for a charge relating to property damage. I had not committed any vandalism myself, but I was present when the vandalism was committed. For this service Mr. Neidig charged me several thousand dollars. The owner of the property I was accused of vandalizing expressed a willingness to settle out of court if I paid for property damage, and I repeatedly tried to bring this offer to the attention of Mr. Neidig, but I couldn't, as he didn't take more than my first two phone calls during the many months that he served as my lawyer. It was extremely frustrating. Had I known it was an option at the time, I would have filed a complaint with the Oregon State Bar for his refusal to speak with me, his client. Three years later, when I was eligible to expunge this offense from my record, I consulted Mr. Neidig about filing the necessary paperwork, since he had represented me in the case originally. He quoted me a fee of well over $1000 to complete and file a one-page document subject to a roughly $100 filing fee. I decided to do it myself. Even though I lived out of state at the time, it was almost a thousand dollars cheaper for me to fly to Portland and submit the expungement paperwork myself than to hire Mr. Neidig to do it. And that was without doubt the easiest interaction I ever had with the court. If you want a responsive or accessible lawyer who cares about your individual case, do not hire Mr. Neidig.
