Have to Say

  • John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.

    “I contacted John Vaught to represent me in a case recently concerning the death of my wife. He was recommended to me by someone that worked in the legal system while I was asking for a lawyer with knowledge and integrity. From the time of my initial interview with John, throughout the entire case, I found that he is indeed very knowledgeable of law and procedure. I was very impressed that, not only could he tell me what the law was on a given point, he also had the experience to tell me how the process was going to go, what the opposing lawyers were thinking, and even tell me what time frame was normal. Nothing was ever left out or forgotten, the process moved along very smoothly, and John kept me very informed of what was going on and what I needed to do the entire time. I also found John to be a man of integrity. It was very important to me that I not get a lawyer that was only interested in money with no respect or feelings for people. I believe that John is truly a man that cares about people, and is genuinely interested in truth and justice in any situation, an he was completely truthful with me through the whole process. John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.”
