CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS
Mr. John H O'Donnell is an excellent divorce lawyer. He really understands the law and did a great job defending and educating me. He really makes you feel at ease. When I talk to John, I am talking to an old friend. He listens and understands. I have been divorced for many years and yet was recently subpoenaed to court in Westchester to my finances to be examined. My X-Wife is a very greedy person and her and her were trying to take advantage of me. I hired John and happy to say John did not allow that to happen. John was even able to determine it was my X-wife who was doing inappropriate things. I will not hesitate to use his service for any matters that may come up in the future. I would have to say Mr. O'Donnell is one lawyer that cares about his clients in many ways. Thank You John for taking good care of me.
