In today’s time and turmoil, it is truly rare to find an individual to be so knowledgeable, honest, and integrity not compromised. A rare asset “a gem” to the profession. For anyone seeking legal counsel. I say go no further then Attorney John Stanko. Mr. Stanko is able, dependable, and if all possible will help to resolve your situation. A fine gentleman indeed!

Dear John Stanko, I'm sorry this is so late! But I want you to know how much I appreciate your understanding and your expertise in court! You are a great lawyer and I thank-you so much for helping us in a time of need. I wish you much success in all that you set out to do. Rose B.
When I first called John Stanko for his services, he was professional and courteous. Although I was a first time client, he accommodated me to make the process as easy as possible. John was very prompt in returning my phone calls and followed up with my cases in a timely manner. I had several cases in two counties along with a suspended license case which John took care of.
