    John helped a close friend of mine endure and eventually resolve a ghastly set of felony charges. He did an outstanding job!{para}He listens carefully (even when he seems he's not listening). He's understanding and abounds with common sense. He's knowledgeable--both of the law and of human nature. And he has a great sense of humor.{para}I'm happy to have met him. I trust him and I'm very grateful he represented my friend.

    John Cahners is an absolutely outstanding attorney. Extremely honest and understanding. He knows the law quite well, and knows people even better. If you face the prospect of felony charges, it's a very scary situation. The government has practically unlimited resources to prosecute you. My advice to you is to check if John can represent you, and if so, grab him! Remember: the two most important people to be completely honest with: your doctor and your lawyer! I couldn't be more grateful

    Mr. Cahners was the best lawyer I have ever hired. His knowledge combined with his experience was a force that kept me out of jail and my record in the best shape possible. I would hire him again b/c my friends with the same charges did not get as good as results as me. Truly thankful I hired him and not someone else.
