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.
