  • I would strongly recommended John Demas to any injured victim.
    I would not hesitate to recommend the services of John Demas and his office to handle a personal injury claim. I was in a serious car accident in 2007 and my partner was injured to the extent of becoming a quadriplegic as a result. The other driver was at fault and was underinsured. We were able to get a full settlement (policy limits) for her, but the more complicated issues of the case involved myself. As a registered domestic partner I was not recognized legally as a "spouse," and could have received little to no settlement compensation. In addition, my injury claim was very minor. Because of John's tenancity, advocacy and novel legal arguments, he was able to obtain for me a full settlement (policy limits) for my claim -- something not expected or most probably, not been done before for a registered domestic partner. I would strongly recommend him and his office. They really cared about us and did everything in their power to help us.
