I wrote a review re Mr. Stocks in December '15. At that time I was pleased with his handling of my divorce and domestic violence cases. However, over the months I began to feel like I was doing everything by myself. No progress was made on the case unless I, or the opposition, initiated it. He did not review or analyze my documents, and did not offer any proposals for resolution. I did not find out until sitting down at mediation, that my pre-nuptial agreement was seriously flawed. I wrote requesting feedback on how we were going to proceed. No answer. I scheduled an appointment. I wrote several times subsequent to that and did not receive a response. One month before the trial, he texted me and said he needed me to bring him copies of all my documents that day. We did not have an appointment and I was at work. He called and chastised me, saying he had told me this ahead of time, and then hung up on me when I tried to defend myself. Then he emailed me and said I had not paid ahead like required, when I had paid everything requested. I reviewed my bills and noted an apparent double billing and requested it be resolved. Then I received an email from his legal secretary saying that he had withdrawn from the case. I could not find any other attorneys that would take over the case so close to the trial. He seriously jeopardized my case and was unprofessional.

I contacted John Stocks in regards to a collection matter for my business and he and his staff were very prompt to respond with all of the necessary questions they had in order to work on my case. They would answer any question I had during the process clearly and promptly which gave me peace of mind!

I personally used Mr. Stocks in my divorce. In a divorce, you need an attorney that has a solid understanding of case law. When you’re in court with John he will stand by you and fight for you and your case till the bitter end. I had two attorneys before finding him and would not trade him for anyone out there. He also is a genuine guy and he truly understands how hard it is to get through a difficult court battle. He gets it and will guide you every step of the way. He does not play games he works very hard. He has a very well skilled paralegal as well and they are an amazing team! They both get the job accurately and on time which is very important when you are dealing with the courts. My only regret in my case is I did not hire him out the gate! I hope my review helps you make a good decision in choosing a experienced attorney!

I have a complex contentious custody situation that requires an attorney that can keep up with all the details and cut right to the core of the issues. I've had experience with several attorneys- John stands out from them in several ways. He kept up with me and all the details of my case. John thoroughly explains his legal advice in such a way that helps you to make better decisions for yourself and your case. This is exactly the quality you need in an attorney. Especially with an emotionally charged family legal matter.

I hired John Stocks as my divorce attorney. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. I have recommended Mr. Stocks to several colleagues, and they have been just as happy with his services. Mr. Stocks was compassionate, supportive, helpful, aggressive, knowledgable, experienced and guided me through a very difficult time. If I ever need any future services, I would definitely use Van Siclen, Stocks & Firkins again.

John took my theft case, it's been an extremely difficult situation, and I feel protected having him as counsel. He's tough, the same day I hired him he fired out demand letters and got things moving. His demand letters early on helped me obtain a 5 year stalking protection order 3 monthe later. He knows his stuff. Definitely recommend.

I have hired John Stocks to represent me for several legal issues over the past 6 years and I have been very impressed with his work. John Stocks has a great personality that shines through to make you smile during the most difficult times in your life while presenting the facts involved and explaining legal options. I highly recommend John Stocks on a regular basis to anyone who needs legal counsel and have referred many clients which resulted in nothing but positive feedback. John Stocks is extremely knowledgeable and professional and is known for working many hours through the night to ensure we have reviewed and prepared for everything we need in court and I will continue to hire him if I ever need an attorney.

I hired John Stocks for my divorce case that lasted 18 months. John was always friendly, courteous and pleasant with me. He is the type of lawyer who does his homework and is prepared for court and trials with the details. Nothing gets buy him; he checks and double checks his work and papers. John advocated for me in my divorce and wrote up the papers detailing everything I wanted. He did a fabulous job! I would hire him again!

I hired John for a divorce cause and he was always behind on issues, was very hard to get pro active action on anything and all actions from him became reactive to a weak opposing attorney. I paid top dollar and did way more work myself. He is great at charging $300 per hour to write letters that accomplish nothing
