 “John represented me in both criminal and family law cases. In my experience with John he was very knowledgeable and completely honest and upfront with everything. He took the time to explain the good, the bad, the known and unknown. He always gave his full attention to my cases and made me feel like my case was his most important case. The best part about having John as an attorney is that he has been such a good source for advice even after my business with him was over. He treats you like a true friend. John is a good attorney who helps those who want to help themselves. I would recommend him to anyone and if needed hire him again.”

“Professional and trustworthy. I had a consultation with John to see if I had a case for wrongful termination or discrimination. After I stated all of the facts, he was very straight-forward. He told me the odds of winning the case were stacked against me. He went through what would happen if we pursued the case anyways. During this consultation he was very professional and direct. I was happy he didn't give me false hope. And he legitimately cared about the struggle I was facing. He is one of the only attorneys I felt I could fully trust. Because of this, I will definitely seek him out in the future for any legal needs.”

“Outstanding Legal Advice and Support. My mother, a senior citizen, was given outstanding support and advice by Mr. John Roodhouse related to an insurance policy owned by my uncle after he passed away. Mr. Roodhouse was patient, resourceful, and diligent and helped by listening to the concerns of several members of our family as we each were interested in easing the burden of responsibility from our mother. His recommendations to pursue a legal challenge of the insurance company's denial of our claim was fair-minded, and he had done more than adequate research before giving such recommendation. Mr. Roodhouse continues to handle the affairs of my mother's will and trust as well, and I and my family are grateful to him for his professionalism always.”

“Best in Missouri. I was going through an extremely complicated and emotional case and he was extremely professional and very supportive looking at my best chance for a positive outcome. John was always reachable by phone or email which it is so nice not to play phone tag or just keep waiting to not have a call returned.”
