What a great experience (I mean for a terribly unfortunate situation!). Very responsive firm! John had wisdom about my situation that was ...terrifying, actually! And simultaneously, with that same wisdom he brought me comfort at every turn. We were in great hands. It was awesome to feel so much confidence in my legal team. In a heart beat, I would RUSH to Rushing McCarl LLP in the future ("Rush to Rushing" - see what I did there?! ) Thank you SO much!

Just after a brief introductory phone call with John he'd provided me tons of value. It's obvious that they take a lot of pride in their work and are true, honest professionals.

John provided invaluable guidance during a negotiation with my former employer. I noticed several reviews highlighting the integrity of this firm, and John's honesty and genuine kindness truly stood out. I wholeheartedly recommend their services!

LITERAL LIFESAVERS!!!! I was scammed into a contract for equipment 1000 times the market value by shady door to door salesman. After realizing what I got into, I was horrified and realized that I'd be paying 30 years on simple home equipment. I scoured the internet for lawyers with expertise in contract law and they took my case. In the end they got me out of what would have been a horrible financial nightmare. They won't make promises, but if there is a loophole, they'll l find it! Their professionalism, diligence, responsiveness and customer service were absolutely amazing. I am so grateful to have found this firm and that they took my case. God forbid I need their services again, they would be my first choice for representation.

Reviews are challenging for the business that Rushing McCarl engages in, because they deal with a difficult landscape where legal transactions/disputes can become very costly. We appreciate their level of professional judgement and execution in our case. Hopefully we won't have to go through this again, if we do, we would definitely work with Rushing McCarl again

I needed some help proofing a complicated personal-services contract, but I didn't have a corporate-lawyer budget. Rushing McCarl took my financial situation into consideration yet still provided outstanding service, timely communication, and an excellent resolution to my situation. Would definitely use them again.

Carol Risher has been amazing, thorough and extremely helpful. I would absolutely recommend Rushing McCarl and Carol if you’re looking for results, fair/true guidance and ultimately results. Well done Carol. Thank you! Thank you all.

A few months ago, I accidentally discovered an out-of-state company had copied our website and even our company name and logo. I contacted Rushing McCarl LLP to find out what are my legal rights. John Rushing returned my call immediately, he explained the process to me, and I decided to hire the firm. I was delighted with the outcome of his work. He contacted the company and had them to change their name, domain, etc. Additionally, whenever I had a question, I could talk to him or his partners immediately. I am incredibly pleased with their attorney services and highly recommend them.
