    I am so glad we came across John Lemon because he was the best lawyer for my case. He was very knowledgeable about my case and took his time to explain things to me. Sometimes, I didn’t know what was best for me, but he directed me with patience. He worked on my case like no other lawyer would, taking calls on weekends and at nights. Whenever I had a question, he answered it, and he worked from the beginning to end of my case with the same enthusiasm. He fought very hard for me.

    John C Lemon is a very good lawyer. When my husband was arrested, I felt like all odds were against us. I remember the first time I talked to him I was so confused; I remember asking him if he thinks my husband could win the case, he said "nothing is impossible" and he was right. He fought the case all the way to the end he never gave up even when I felt like I couldn't go on anymore. We fought the case for little over a year and the outcome was great. I could never thank him enough.
