• Lethal Litigator

5.0 stars

Posted by rosemary

John Lang was my trial attorney for a Will Contest which we ultimately won in 2016. John Lang,,as lead attorney, always took full command of facts & circumstances of which he conducted depositions & cross examinations rendering the opposition weak &intimidated every time. Don't ever mistake Mr Lang's unassuming manner as he is strategic, razor sharp, methodical, spares no punches, & holds no prisoners. Lang got moms last will thrown out & got me the amount provided in moms 2 prior wills. BRAVO

• A Strategic Thinker

5.0 stars

Posted by anonymous

John Lang is a strategic thinker. He thinks outside the box and then turns the box inside out. I highly recommend him as an attorney. He is "old school" in the best sense: diligent, aggressive, determined, loyal and effective. When combined with a fine strategic mind, you have a potent combination and a first class attorney.
• Excellent Attorney and Top Legal Strategist
5.0 stars
Posted by anonymous John Lang is an excellent attorney and superb legal strategist. His insights and advice regarding my case were spot-on. I trust his judgment implicitly. John was wonderful to deal with. He answered my questions and addressed all concerns I may have had. He communicated and explained issues clearly. He is professional, keenly intelligent, strong, and caring, and was 100% dedicated to favorably resolving my case. Thanks to the expertise of John and his partner, Angelica Kontoroff, my legal matter has been successfully concluded. I highly recommend John and his firm.

• Performance "above and beyond"

5.0 stars

Posted by Robert Goldsmith

Attorney John Lang really delivered a level of service, skills and commitment that was above and beyond anything I could have expected. He navigated a myriad of issues and individuals involved in my case and demonstrated both passion and commitment to seeing it to successful conclusion over an extended period of time. Assisting attorneys and other support in his office were, also, first-class and stars, themselves. I could not have expected any more from John and his people.

Client Review

John helped in a very difficult situation involving the disposition of my dad's estate and a Final Release I had signed. It was complex with issues of ethics and alleged fraud and the very deep pockets of our opponent, her firm, and her insurance company. {para}With his skilled and dedicated team of specialized attorneys and assistants, formal and informal consultations with other experts, we were able, cost-effectively, to bring the matter to a substantial settlement in my favor. 110% recommended.

Client Review

John Lang is not only an extraordinary lawyer, he is at the center of an equally extraordinary network of specialists who extend and complement his expertise. This multidisciplinary network brings the depth and excellence one might expect in a large firm to a small firm experience.

Client Review
I can think of no lawyer I would recommend more highly than John Lang. For matters having to do with litigation of any type there is none better. In matters of judgement, he is, again, at the top of the list. In one recent case having to do with possible past tax due, John's advice as to strategy and approach (how best to keep legal expenses at a minimum) was uncannily good; in a case having to do with retirement/ownership matters, his judgment has been invaluable.
