A corrupt police station accused me of something I didn't do. I had to quickly prove I was innocent. Not knowing what to do, I turned to Mr. Maher. He proved my innocence and because of him I have my job, and my freedom.

My first attorney treated my case as an afterthought; I felt like a bother to her. With Mr. Maher, I felt like I was finally heard, understood and represented! He gave my case his full attention and his work yielded my best possible outcome.

Most attorneys talk big but then hand your case off to a junior partner or law clerk. With John, you can expect his close personal attention. If you were my friend or family in the most dire of straits, he is the attorney I would recommend.
