Outstanding Attorney!!!!!!!
I was accused of a crime that could have potentially ended my career and put my professional license in jeopardy. I did my research and met with a number of attorney's before hiring John. He seemed to be the most put together attorney I met with. It was the most stressful period of my life and I needed someone who was organized. The accusation against me was troubling, false and malicious. John was outstanding at every step of the process and my case was eventually dropped. This process took almost a year but without John I would not have been able to get all the way through the hell I was put through by a false accusation.

John knows everyone!
John in an AMAZING attorney. John and I met outside the Bellevue courthouse before court. When we walked in together for my DV case the security guards said hi to him and called him by his name. That's when I knew I had the right attorney. John believed in my case at every step of the process and did not settle. The case took longer then I wanted but John eventually got the case dismissed to to false accusations and self-defense. This guy is connected. He knows the other attorneys, prosecutors, judges etc. around the courthouse. Thanks John !

Best Bet for Order out of Chaos
Words can not describe my gratitude to John T. His optimism, confidence and proffesionalism was the hard rock in the storm which engulfed my life a year ago. John shines in the court and was able to get my DV case dismissed in the notoriously difficult Kirkland Court. John T is also a striving pillar of the community and as such has many valuable resources to help you in all aspects of your case and life. I had actually hired a different lawyer initially, who had assured me that there was no way for me to avoid penalty in my DV case with the toughest court in Seattle area. I was certain of my innocence as the case was largely built on slander, and searched out John T. Best decision of my life. I would recomend anyone who in the future gets pulled into unfortunate circumstances with a person who has more red flags than a Chinese New Year to: A) Not speak to the police (my mistake) B) Contact John T.

Hands down THE BEST!
I’ve never had a need for legal representation before so I was totally lost, until I found John. He was knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to take time to answer any questions I had (and I had a lot). He talked to me like I was a person, not just another file on his list (unlike other companies I talked to). I will recommend him to anyone that is in red of representation in the future. Thank you so much!

John Tymczyszym of John T Law is a great attorney. He provided fantastic representation. He diligently worked the case until we achieved a positive outcome. John is one of those rare attorneys who works as a team with the client. He listened to my suggestions and took time to discuss strategy for each step of the process. I can enthusiastically recommend John T. Law for anyone with a DV issue.

OUTSTANDING PHONE CALL
I talked to attorney John T. this morning and hired him. He got a copy of my police report today and spent over an hour talking to me over the phone and on Zoom to ease my mind about the possible penalty for Domestic Violence Assault. He was a big help and I am excited to be working with him.

Got me 10k for delinquent customer payment
I heard that with construction cases you can usually only get 50 cents on the dollar from customers who don't pay you. In this case John got me 100% of what I was owed.

The Lawyer You NEED to Hire
The reviews you have read are true - you need to hire John! John went above and beyond my expectations helping me with a USERRA violation. John’s quickness/responsiveness, efficiency, professionalism, and intelligence is unmatched. John is a no-nonsense, straight shooter—that works harder than other attorney I know. John is fearless, but friendly. He is feared, but respected. John wins his cases, because he knows what he’s doing, and how to get it done. John worked quickly, carefully, and effectively to get a resolution beyond my wildest imagination. He answered all of my questions in a timely fashion, let me review and make decisions alongside with him, and reached a resolution before I even finished my active duty orders. The Washington State Army National Guard, and myself were so impressed by his work ethic that we all know who to hire now if anymore veterans/USERRA issues come up. John is truly the lawyer you want to help you with your case. The only way you’re going wrong is if you don’t hire him. I am forever grateful and indebted to John. We need more lawyers like him. Thank you John.

An outstanding experience
I recently went through a completely unnecessary domestic violence charge. Spending time in corrections was hands down, the lowest moment in my life. In the last month, I was never more miserable, vulnerable, anxious, and impatient. I found John through Google where he had fantastic reviews. I corroborated all user feedback through Avvo. After interviewing multiple attorneys, John clearly stood-out: he wasn't salesy, pushy, and more importantly, he actually listened. John held my hand throughout this entire process. He was extremely responsive to my emails, phone calls, and calmed me down. He was also clear of his intentions and goals - definitely a "straight shooter". John was able to negotiate a diversion program with prosecutors. This was a favorable outcome. While I am sure that other attorneys could have reached the same conclusion, the experience was simply comforting. John is an attorney you can trust.

Recommend for Assault Charge.
John has a well deserved reputation in the legal community in the area around Bellevue. When the judges greet him you can tell they know who he is and respect him. I would recommend John for any type of assault charge.

Beat my Domestic Violence charge
I was falsly accused of a domestic violence assault by a member of my family. I told John T. up-front that I was not accepting any deals from the prosecutor and not pleading guilty to anything that I didn't do. John fought the case the whole way and got the case dismissed. This guy takes no #$%& from anyone.

I highly recommend John T Law
John is the best! I was involved in an auto accident and needed help navigating the process. John took care of everything. He clearly explained the process, kept me updated and got me a $50k settlement! He exceeded my expectations in every way.

Case Dismissed
I highly recommend John. He is completely professional, empathetic, caring, and knows what he is talking about it. For me, I wanted a strong lawyer but what made me know I found the right attorney was how kind he is. He explained all of the documents to me so I could understand and was reachable.

Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend John Tymczyszyn for your case. He represented me when a protection order was served, an order which was unwarranted and unnecessary. I was confused and scared, and uncertain what this would mean for my future. John was reassuring, and importantly, 100% on my side. His research and preparation were thorough, and his actions were careful and measured. His knowledge of the court and his ability to anticipate its workings were invaluable. His oral arguments at the final hearing were assertive and convincing. He was able to get about the best result that could be hoped for.

Caring, Knowledgable, & Efficient
John helped me out a lot by taking on a case to help me get a settlement from a personal injury lawsuit. He was great at keeping in touch, and letting me know what was going on throughout the case. He was very thorough in his work, informative, knowledgeable and able to answer any of my questions, as well as addressing my concerns throughout the process. I highly recommend Mr. Tymczyszyn.
