He’s a brilliant negotiator

I would give John 10 stars if I could. In the beginning I made the mistake of hiring another law firm to handle my personal injury case. After almost a year of getting the run around I called john. Immediately john and the team at the Steve Boyd law firm got the ball rolling. Everyone was so professional, ethical and caring. John’s knowledge and work ethic of his practice are second to none. He’s a brilliant negotiator. He made sure I was compensated well for someone else negligence. John V. Elmore should be everyone's first choice!

truly a great lawyer

I never encountered a single problem with the law in my 40 years on this earth until earlier this year- 2015. I am a married man, have four children- two college grads, and a successful career of 19 years that I love! When I was wrongly arrested, I had no idea of what to do or who to call until I recalled seeing an attorneys billboard on Delevan & Humboldt St. In Buffalo, NY.

All of these blessings were almost gone in an instant when local police officials wrongfully arrested me. Attorney John V. Elmore was attentive, punctual, and excellent in his representation of me. His confidence, knowledge of the law, and ability to explain the legal jargon to me in plain English allowed me to have peace of mind. Attorney Elmore’s diligence and tenacity gave me back my freedom, piece of mind, protected my family's right to privacy, and worked collaboratively with my employer to maintain my career.

What else could anyone ask of their attorney? I stumbled upon the review of attorney Elmore that shed negative light on his practices by accident. Although I’m extremely busy researching topics for a paper I’m writing, I had to speak up and defend his hard work ethic. Even if it means not getting my research paper emailed out on time. Perhaps the author should have been a little more patient and trusting of the representation... I’m sorry, who knows? Sorry your case didn't work out but he is truly a great lawyer.

dedicated to helping

My elderly Mother who's deceased, was in Sister's hospital being treated for a stroke, the social worker met with myself (power of attorney) in regards to placement for a Rehabilitation center; however without my prior knowledge and consultation with my mother, she was transferred wrapped up in sheets against her will, without knowledge of where she was going and without me being contacted in the middle of the winter. After arriving to the Hospital for a routine visit, I discovered this , immediately in route to the Rehabilitation center, I contacted Attorney John V. Elmore, he calmed me down, listened very attentively, he empathize with my anger, and informed me of my Mother's rights and my legal options. He's proven to be dedicated to helping all people receive fair and just treatment.


I would not hesitate to hire John again

John is a great attorney. He represented me in a case brought by a local government official. Not only did he get charges dismissed, he also ensured sealing of the record as well. This was after my previous attorney had convinced me that I would be convicted, resulting in my resignation from a high level government position. I would not hesitate to hire John again if the need arises.

my "go to" attorney

And yes, he IS that good. As a retired law enforcement officer, I've seen the good, the bad and the very ugly in "representation". Mr. Elmore falls into none of those categories for he is in a class all his own. You will find NO better representation, whatever your case may be, in WNY. Because of my former profession, I could not get involved in friends arrest cases (and yes, sometimes bad things happen to good people), Mr. Elmore was and is my first recommendation. For those who took my advice, they were NEVER disappointed with the results. Even when faced with job termination, Mr. Elmore put on his cape and saved the day for all of them. He has been and will continue to be my "go to" attorney, whatever the problem may be


He did a great job during my proceedings

Mr. Elmore represented me back in 1997. He helped me through the whole process. He informed my family and I about things we should expect. No fancy (high tech) Legal terminology; everything was plain and simply. He did a great job during my proceedings. What he told me haunted me in my following proceedings.
