    I am very very upset and displeased with the professionalism of John Lainhart. I had 2 different cases that he was "supposed" to be working. Neither car accident was my fault. He promised me he could easily win both cases. I am in the military and he knew I was going to Korea. After 3 years of waiting to see where my cases were he dropped both of them and did not give me reasons. Instead I found out from the chiropractor that he told me to use. Every time me or my wife tryed to contact him to get reasons he wouldn't answer his personal phone and when I called his office the people who worked with him would always say he is unavailable. So now I am stuck having to pay for these bills that he had arranged to be priced up. He used this chiropractor before and wanted the bill to be ran up to at least 10,000 dollars so that he could make money from winning the cases. He also did not give my contact information or mailing address to the defendant's lawyer so by the time I get back to the United States I received information that I had 5 days to find a new lawyer or my case would be completely dropped. The problem was John had all of my case information and did not release them or send them to me. My wife also called him to release the information to another lawyer and he would not. So basically the whole time I was in korea the defendant's lawyer was in court trying to find me and didn't find me because of John didn't give the information. The first case I was hit in the side and I had really good pictures of the scene. The second case I was rear ended by a 14 year old that didn't have her license and also wasn't on her dad's insurance and shouldn't have been driving. I had to take my wife to the hospital because she was pregnant and felt weird and I had my other kid in the vehicle. The first case he dropped and I had 5 days to receive the case information from him. The second case was supposedly dropped because the family would have claim bankruptcy. So now I have 1 accident on my record and I owe this money that I believe John should have to pay. The second accident definitely shouldn't have been dropped the girl wasn't even old enough to drive and she rear ended me. I would NOT recommend this lawyer to anybody especially military. He is a nice guy but that should not be a reason to hire him. For him to promise me and my wife that he would win these cases and then treat us the way he did I still can't believe it. Words can't describe the way he has affected me, my wife and 3 kids.

    John B Lainhart’s response: “I completely understand where this client is coming from. If I was him, I would be upset too. However, the decision to drop his cases was not mine. In fact, I fought hard not to drop those cases. At the time, however, I was working for someone else and I had a boss who made the final determinations on cases and there was nothing I could do. This client's anger is pointed at the wrong direction. I am truly sorry for what happened to he and his wife, but I wish they didn't blame me personally for something that was not my fault.”

    I'm very happy to be associated with the law offices of Steven Weier. Most satisfied with the process and outcome of 2 cases. Yes, I would refer the office to someone needing representation.

    I have used John Lainhart on numerous occasions to perform legal work for me. He has always been professional and honest. I have recommened him to others on numerous occasions and have always received good feedback. He is an honest, hardworking guy.

    Mr. Lainhart represented me in a speeding ticket that was not valid.
    His use of the rule of law caused the judge to dismiss the ticket.
