Great Choice
John Wilson and Molly of Rush Hanulla; were realistic, professional, but also very personal to work with. They were realistic and honest about what could happen, and then they put in the work to make it happen better than expected. I would hire them again, and have already recommended them to others.

Great experience
From beginning to end, John, Molly and Erin did a great job. Our difficult case was handled with the utmost care and consideration. We were informed of status regularly and our questions were answered in a timely manner. We have and will recommend them to anyone. Truly a pleasure under the difficult circumstances.

John is a trustworthy and honest counselor and hard working advocate. He is intelligent, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive.
I was referred to John's firm by a relative who works in the legal field for a somewhat complex personal injury case against the government and had the great fortune of developing a relationship with John after having interviewed with a couple of other attorneys. He was patient and caring and always receptive to our input and feedback. He worked very hard to make sure my wife and I were fully informed regarding all aspects of the law and the multiple procedures and actions this case would require. He worked closely with us to achieve a very favorable outcome and never pressured us to make a decision or accept an offer to settle, it was always very clearly up to us how to proceed and we always felt well informed. John is very personable and friendly, it was obvious that he genuinely cares about his clients beyond the matters of the case and not only advocated for my rights and fair compensation, he also made sure that I was receiving appropriate and complete medical care and treatment. I have proudly referred John to friends and family and have since asked him to represent me in a moderate vehicle accident claim as well. I am glad to have been John's client and my wife and I are happy we selected him to be our attorney. Highest regards, sincerest gratitude.

A satisfied client
John was sensitive to our needs and very efficient with getting the case settled. Did we get everything we hoped for...no not really. But then again we had somewhat unrealistic expectations given the circumstances. We got a fair settlement and were treated with respect and dignity throughout the whole process. I would recommend John because he doesn't promise the world, he's real and worked hard to get what was fair, especially considering we were from out of country.

Respectful, flexible, hardworking
John R. Wilson treated my case and me respectfully. He was very willing to treat me as a collaborting contributor. He was willing to integrate detailed research findings into what is more typically a brief report and thus convinced the other party of the seriousness and substance of the case. He is frank, approachable, and likeable.
