    John was helpful drafting a letter to clarify my wife's legal history, which was tarnished, falsely, by an old incident. I believe this will be helpful in her reestablishing her career, and am grateful for his help.

    I contacted John after reading his reviews on Avvo and calling other lawyer's in the area who all quickly referred me to him. We had run into an issue with a family business that was quickly looking like it could become a criminal case. John has all the right connections to get more information to give you an ease of mind. He was professional, courteous, VERY responsive and by far one of the best lawyer's I have ever worked with. He helped our family through a very difficult time and I can never repay what he has helped us through!

    Having little knowledge of the legal system, we called Mr. Jensen on the recommendation of a co-worker who stated simply “call John Jensen, he’s the best.” We are so glad we followed that advice. At our initial phone call Mr. Jensen took the time to explain our legal situation, clarify all of the legal jargon used in our paperwork, and outline possible pathways to a solution – all before even taking on our case. Once his official representation was secured we continued to be pleasantly surprised by the personable, and highly effective, treatment we received.
    The initial situation that caused our legal mishap was frustrating. We did not feel as if we were treated comparably with the other involved parties, did not feel communicated with appropriately by the authorities and even felt like we were provided with misinformation at multiple points. Mr. Jensen put an end to that. By the time of our first face-to-face meeting he had compiled legal documents, interpreted them in terms we could understand and put together several potential strategies for moving forward.
    Looking back at the process, I can clearly see just how effective Mr. Jensen was on our behalf, and how terribly things might have gone if we hadn’t made that call and secured his services. We felt that Mr. Jensen had the perfect blend of tenacity toward our case and empathy toward us.

    I have known John since my adolescent years. He has represented me in at least half a dozen cases. Ranging from Felony Malicious Mischief, DUI, to a simple speeding ticket. John has gotten at least half of my charged DISMISSED. Meaning, will never show up on my record. The remaining charges he always got reduced to a lesser charge, with my approval. He was always very honest and forthright about the risks/rewards of going to trial. I have recommended John to all my friends and colleagues.

    John was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and always made sure to keep me informed. Several times I was unable to answer his phone calls etc. due to my personal work constraints. However, he always returned phone calls or emails during hours to suit his client, myself. I always knew step-by-step with what was going on with my case. I was extremely pleased with the outcome and would gladly pay for his services, if and when needed in the future.

  • Great experience - patient and respectful

    My entire experience with John Jensen was excellent and exceeded my expectations.

    I had a unique (what a couple of other offices told me) situation. I needed advice on something that occurred 25+ years ago. I called at least three other law offices before finding John Jensen's office - which was based on the recommendation from another highly respected law office. The other three plus offices required me to provide significant details of my situation over the phone before considering seeing me for an appointment. This was not acceptable/helpful to me. I even decided not to use my pre-paid legal services (provided through my employer) because that law office was impatient and dismissive over the phone. I share this background because John's law office was the exact opposite of the others.

    John Jensen and his assistant listened to me. And, they listened to me with patience, kindness and respect. John's was thorough, a great communicator, and helped me resolve my situation.

    Thank you again.

    I was referred to John by a public defender, to represent my son. John immediately returned my initial call even well after his normal work hours. This prompt service continued for all subsequent interactions on thru to a successful outcome. John provided excellent representation, but what was most notable about John was his tremendous compassion that he continually demonstrated not only for my son, but our family. John's service was quite professional with a very fair cost . I might add that a key member of his staff, Lisa was also wonderful to work with. Should my Family ever need another Lawyer, we will solicit John's help first.

  • Speeding Dismissal

    Very efficient and cost effective. The fee was considerably less then the sum of the fine + the added cost of insurance over the years + the aggravation writing a check to a bunch of sleaze-bags operating a speeding trap.

    John Jensen and staff were professional, courteous and handled the contested traffic infraction well. Having employed the services of lawyers in the past for traffic infractions, I came into this knowing what to expect. I paid up front for the services, more than I've paid in the past, then waited to hear back about the outcome. Traffic court only happens every so often, so it took 40 days for my court date to arrive. They notified me of the court date and advised that I didn't have to appear in court. Mr. Jensen appeared on my behalf and called to congratulate on dismissal of the ticket the same day.
