Client Testimonials

Paul Cantrell

I’ve had many attorneys over the years. But, I have never had an attorney who I felt cared more about me than my money. Until now. John was more like a counselor to me at some points. I really can’t put a price tag on what he’s done for me. He has always under promised and over delivered. Always on time and very quick to get back to me. I highly recommend giving him a shot. Thanks again for everything you have done for me John. I truly appreciate it and so does my family.


John Elliott is the real deal. Challenged everything that made sense to fight. Weakened their case all the way through. Ultimately, we had to take it to jury trial and he won the case. Money well spent. Thank you sir!

Finally got results with John Elliott. He did more for me in 6 months than two prior attorneys did over two years. His price was fair and reasonable. He did not nickle and dime me for every email or quick conversation. He listened...and helped. Very grateful for him... and highly recommend.
