He is very good in the courtroom and was always on top of everything with the legal issue. In the end it all worked all very well for me.…

I would definitely hire him again if the need arises-hopefully it will not!!

VIC: True Advocate For YOU

Having an advocate during difficult times is so hard to find. You want someone who is not only passionate about the law but also uses that passion to prioritize your best interests during stressful times. John Rooney was that advocate for me and my family. My wife was hit by a car while crossing the street in Philadelphia. Your head spins when a loved one is seriously…

injured and emotions run high. All of a sudden you are dealing with police reports, insurance companies, and doctor’s bills that all are so important to manage so your loved one can be made whole again. John was great in anticipating the needs of my wife and my family; he was always present to answer our concerns regarding the accident. In addition, when it came to financial settlement, John was absolutely great in assertively dealing with the insurance companies and was aggressive to ensure we got the very best financial settlement. It’s great to have someone like John on your side when you’re trying to determine what needs you have not only now but in the future….John was great with helping identify those needs. We will always be grateful. You will not find a better advocate!

John Rooney’s Response:

Thanks Vic, I appreciate your kind words. It was great working with you and your wife. I’m really happy we were able to get you the compensation that you guys deserved. Hopefully the settlement funds help alleviate some of the hardship that was caused by this accident. Give my regards to the family. -John


Leslee F.

“I would highly recommend John Rooney! During a difficult situation I am so grateful for his dedication, perseverance and professionalism. He was very reliable and I’m thankful for his legal work on my behalf!”

Adam Denard: Unemployment Compensation

I had a complicated issue involving Unemployment Compensation. At first the state was requiring me to pay them back compensation in excess of $6k due to an employers paperwork filings. Once John stepped in and had a look at the situation, he realized that I was not on the line AND that I should continue to receive…

UC benefits. John quickly resolved the issue, his professionalism and knowledge of current law left me in good hands. I can’t recommend him enough.

Tom: Working With John

I engaged John to help me with a commercial litigation matter and he did a great job representing me and bringing the issue to a quick conclusion. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE.

Francis: Review For Lawyer John F. Rooney V

John F. Rooney is a very honest professional with high morals and principles. It was so simple to communicate with him, he answered all my questions & concerns regaurding my case. Very affordable. Just a comfortable experience as a whole whether it be your first offense or one of many. I recommend…

for sure!

Dan: Small Claims Hero

After being burned by a contractor when rehabbing my newly purchased home, I hired John Rooney to take the case to small claims court. This was an FHA 203(k) purchase, so the details were complicated due to the nature of the loan. John researched my unique case extensively, and was able to brilliantly articulate his arguments to an extremely…

tedious judge. After 4 hours in the courtroom and various white-boarding sessions, John won the case for me with a judgement of $6,000. This man knows how to lawyer.

Joe: Great Defense Attorney

I hired John Rooney when I found myself in some legal trouble. Not only were John’s fees very reasonable, he proved to be extremely effective and knowledgeable in the court room. Throughout the entire process, John took the time to explain each step and what to expect, since this was my first experience with the legal system. When I was wrongfully charged…

with a felony, he realized this and successfully fought the charge and got it dropped, which was absolutely huge. Ultimately I pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge, since I did commit that crime, and the Philadelphia DA was unwilling to offer any sort of plea deal. When the sentence was harsher than expected (house arrest), John filed a motion to reconsider, which worked, and got the sentenced reduced to just probation; a punishment more inline with the crime and my lack of any criminal record prior to this incident. Without John’s experience and assertiveness, I could very well have ended up behind bars. I basically owe my freedom to him.

Dan: Very Happy Client!

John guided and defended me through a difficult case and I am thrilled with the probation settlement he was able to arrange. On more than one occasion people I’ve interacted with in the criminal justice system when learning the details of my case, have expressed that “I must have an incredible lawyer” and I tell them that I certainly do. I highly recommend…

John and have gone back to him on two occasions where both times he has successfully arranged to have the conditions of my probation lessened.

Criminal Defense Client: Saved My Life

I hired Mr. Rooney to represent me in a criminal case in Montgomery County PA. My previous attorney brought an offer from the prosecutor calling for 6 moths of confinement. If I took that offer I would lose my job, my home, car, etc. I needed a lawyer that was knowledgeable and respectful but not afraid to fight to keep…

me from losing everything. He was able to reason with the prosecutor and she agreed to no incarceration and I received a short term of probation. Mr. Rooney was instrumental in helping to turn my life around and I will (hopefully) never need his services again but would refer him to anybody who is fighting for their freedom.

Juvenile Client: Juvenile Case

John was responsive, extremely honest and very competent. He and his team made us feel like our son was their most important client which is ultimately want you want and need when there is a lot a stake. He was always available which we found comforting when things were not going well. Ultimately, the outcome was the absolute best case scenario. I would…

highly recommend John to anyone, including family and friends.

Jabril: Rooney Wins Cases

Mr. Rooney treated me with the utmost respect and more importantly had my cases dismissed due to procedural misconduct by the police. If you have been arrested and need someone that’s gonna fight the DA and not sell you out then he’s the lawyer you want.

Family Client: Very Knowledgeable, Professional, And Very Reasonable Fees

Very knowledgeable, professional, and down to earth. Was straightforward and told me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear. Went out of his way to accommodate my schedule. But what impressed me the most was, though he could have done what most lawyers do,…

and tried to convince me to take the case to the next level, which would have benefited him financially, he cared more about the best interest of my children involved in the case and did his best to find alternative mediation methods. Furthermore, he did not nickle-and-dime me. His fees were exactly what he say they would be, and they were more than reasonable for such a complex case. I would not hesitate to highly recommend him to loved ones.

Corey: Very Pleased With Results

John did an great job for me when I was struggling after a major setback. I received a settlement that helped me to support my family and my business.

Anonymous: In Good Hands

John handled (and won) my personal injury case/accident. The entire process was very easy once John stepped in, his professionalism and knowledge of current law made me feel like I was in good hands. I would definitely recommend him.

Bryan: Great Attorney, Knowledgeable, Courteous But Most Importantly, A Winner

If you’re looking for an attorney who may or not specialize in something you need but is kinda cheap, this ISNT your guy. If you’re looking for an attorney who knows a lot about a lot, will call you back, and will win, this is the man.

Derek S.: Hire John Rooney – He Solves Problems

Hire John Rooney:

John Rooney Solves Problems. His website smartly leads with this statement. Its true.

I’ve lawyers quite a bit in a professional or civil suit environment. John Rooney is one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

John Rooney has wonderful characteristics that are frankly hard to find in the legal field. For starters: He is very smart, professional, wise, and prudent…

John is not afraid to advocate for his clients and he doesn’t play footsies with Judges or Lawyers. He’s of course always respectful when in court, but he makes it clear to everyone that: (1) you have rights, (2) that your rights will be respected by all parties, and (3) you deserve an expedient just resolution of your matter.

Most importantly: he is sharp and tough as a “steeled razor”. He will look to simplify complex problems and work through your issue with a process oriented common sense approach.

I hate to call any lawyer a bargain because, it implies their service isn’t valuable (top shelf). Instead I’d simply say I owe Mr. Rooney more than he required me to pay.

I look forward to watching Mr. Rooney’s career from a far after he is done representing me. He is the sort of lawyer you root for. He is the sort of lawyer there simply are not enough of.
