"Once in a while, someone comes into your life and attaches himself to your heart so tenaciously that you feel as though that person has always been there. You, dearest John, and your entire team, have been such a person in my life. You have been granted the amazing capacity to be professional and personal all at the same time. You have truly worn the cloak of dignity and presented yourself with unmatched competency and unrequited passion and purpose. You have displayed sensitivity, wisdom, knowledge, and clearly defined integrity, and all the while, remembering that humanity and genuinely caring about others is at the root of true success."

- Betty Jo Lively

"I came to Mr. McCabe a little over two and half years ago. A mother, who was desperately seeking answers as to what really caused the tragic car accident my daughter died in. Mr. McCabe was honest with me; and stated he had never taken on a case such as mine before. But if I chose him as my attorney, he was confident that he would do his best to get the answers that I was seeking. He made it perfectly clear that there were no guarantees. Mr. McCabe is fair, honest, and straight forward. These are characteristics I think consumers look for when looking for an attorney they can trust. As your case progresses, Mr. McCabe and his team keeps you well informed. There were times when things did not look favorable, he was straight forward. He did not "sugar coat" the facts and other times when things were going well, I was kept abreast of this too. Mr. McCabe and his team treat you with the up most respect. They listen to what you have to say. While recognizing that they are experts in what they do, YOU are the expert on your love one. I guess, you can say, he makes you feel like you are apart of his team. My experience has been that Mr. McCabe and his team do not look at your case as another case file but as a real human being, who they genuinely want to get to know. Mr. McCabe and his team are very compassionate people and I thank God every day that He directed me to Mr. McCabe's Law Firm. I would gladly recommend him to anyone."

- Bernadette Carter

"John McCabe is one of the best lawyers around. When we first met John in February 2011, he listened to what we had to say and was very concerned about my health and the situation surrounding it. John is not a person who chases cases. His cases come from recommendations from his clients and fellow attorneys. Within the first 15 minutes of meeting John, I knew he was the right lawyer for me and my family because he showed care and compassion for the whole situation, not just the details of my injuries. Throughout the time we have worked with John, he has been there for us as a friend and a lawyer. John and his staff have the resources and connections to keep life moving when you think doors are closing. They are always available and John makes himself reachable anytime for clients. Throughout our case, John handled everything. We had no worries about anything. We put all our trust in John and his staff, and it has returned us great and satisfying results. If you want the best, look no further -- The Law Offices of John McCabe has the resources and experience to handle your case."

-Tim Walton

"John has been exactly what I needed during an extremely difficult time - knowledgeable, empathetic, available, but most importantly EXTREMELY effective. I was making an effort to handle my situation on my own. I consider myself a reasonably intelligent person capable of reading laws and applying them. I really did not think I "needed" an attorney. But I was having difficulty moving my situation forward. After an initial consultation with John, he confidently advised "I can help you with this." And he was very right. A "lay" person really cannot navigate the world of personal injury law. I placed my trust in John and he quickly achieved results I could never have achieved on my own. I am 100% better off having retained John's representation. I will unhesitatingly recommend John to anyone is a personal injury/wrongful death situation. I genuinely believe he will give an honest opinion if he can help you, and will achieve results."

-John Szymeczek

"When I first met John, I was taken by his concern for me and my situation. After talking to him for about 30 minutes, I knew I wanted to hire him. We were taking on a big organization and I knew I could not do it alone. John laid everything out for me and did not make a move or talk to anyone without first consulting me and how I felt about it. The process was seamless thanks to him and his staff. When the day of mediation came, he did not waiver in any way. He believed in me and I put every ounce of trust I had in him that day. He LITERALLY held my future and that of my family in his hands and I couldn't have chosen better attorney. I have told several people I know that may be looking in the same direction as I was about him. John McCabe is one in a million. I appreciate everything he did for me."

-Mike Anderson

"After extensive research on attorneys in the Raleigh area who handle legal malpractice cases, I was impressed with John McCabe’s credentials and repeated recognitions for outstanding legal success. When I met John, I felt relieved and confident that his representation of me would be the best, and I was not disappointed. From day one, John’s communication with me was clear, and he set realistic expectations regarding the timeframe for handling the case and the settlement amount. During my interaction with John and his staff members, I felt respected and appreciated as a client. When the claim was finally settled, the results were beyond my expectation. I am sincerely thankful. Without hesitation, I highly recommend The Law Offices of John McCabe to any one in need of outstanding, professional, and personalized legal representation."

-Debra Quailes

"I was involved in a trucking accident by being hit from behind by an 18 wheeler. Following the accident, a good friend of our family recommended that we contact John McCabe. He assured us that his firm was a very excellent choice and he recommended them highly. His recommendation was quickly proved to be a great one. John quickly responded by driving 2 hours to visit us and very clearly outlined the legal opinions for us to consider. Sitting across the table from him, I could tell that here sat a man of character and competence. During the duration of developing the case, John and his staff were meticulous, prompt, knowledgeable and always responded within 24 hours of my calls or emails. John and his staff maintained a very cordial working relationship with us and everyone involved. John sometimes told me not what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. John removed all doubt and allowed me to focus on my rehabilitation. I simply did not have to worry about the details of the case. Our settlement by mediation was fair and equitable. The Law Offices of John McCabe did an incredible job and they delivered the results. John McCabe became a true friend to me and my family and we still communicate with them now. This relationship will never end. We have the utmost respect for John's integrity, legal knowledge and true caring that helped bring this tragic event to a close. We would highly recommend their firm to anyone and would be happy to receive calls on their behalf."

-Bryan Creech

"I made a wonderful decision when I decided to contact Mr. McCabe and his team. Not only were they professional and hardworking; they expressed much gratitude and abundant sympathy towards my case. John was very compassionate and knowledgeable, and a man of strong faith. I have nothing but positive remarks for him and his team! I would recommend his law office to anyone! Thank you very much John!!"

-Melissa B.

"From the moment that I walked through your door, I was treated as if I were the only client that John and his team had. That first meeting convinced me John was a true professional with compassion, vision and integrity. It was immediately clear to me that I had made an excellent choice in John. I never once worried about my case. I was always kept informed of the progress and what to expect as next steps, and John was always accommodating in scheduling meetings with me. I had a very high level of confidence in John through this entire process and would highly recommend him as an attorney! I want to thank every member of the Law Offices of John McCabe. It is a privilege to know each of you."

-Brian Galpin

"After Mike lost his arm in an on-the-job accident, we were referred to John McCabe by a family member that works in the legal field. She told us that John McCabe was, hands down, the best personal injury attorney in the business. John proved to be very knowledgeable, compassionate, diligent, hard working, honest and patient. He kept us informed; often calling us weekly. We were able to move on with our daily lives and rest in the fact that John had our best interest at heart. He has a strong belief in God and is most concerned about principle and what is right. He made us feel like family and guided us to a very favorable outcome. Thank you John."

-Mike & Terri Cummings

"We made a great decision when we hired Mr. McCabe to represent my family in a case involving the death of my four-year-daughter. From Day One, Mr. McCabe showed how much he cares for his clients. He truly cares and he works hard for his clients. Mr. McCabe doesn't quit and he is dedicated to getting the best outcome for you. Thank you Mr. McCabe for all that you have done for my family and me."

-Temeka McPhail

"The Law Office of John M. McCabe, P.A. is amazing! After a car accident left me with injuries that altered my life forever, John and his staff took my case, when other lawyers had turned it down, and they won! Throughout my ordeal, their professionalism, caring nature, and tireless effort to stand up for me never wavered. Many law firms pull a 9-to-5, but not this one. Because of John's efforts, I was able to pay off all of my outstanding medical bills and obtain money for my next surgery. John McCabe is truly a friend who is on your side and who goes above and beyond the call of a lawyer."

-S.L. Brannan

"In 2011, my parents came to US from India to attend my brother's wedding. They came here on visitors insurance and just couple of days prior to their return journey, we were involved in a car wreck. My father was seriously injured and was in emergency room for a week. My mom had few stitches and whiplash injury. This being my first accident and not knowing what to do, I approached our corporate lawyers. They recommended Mr. John McCabe and couple of other lawyers to me. I am so glad that I made my first call to John. Once I met him, there was no need to call other lawyers on the recommendation list. John has very pleasing personality, helping nature, great communication skills and strong ethics. He and his team worked tirelessly to negotiate the medical bills with Duke and also worked with Domestic and International insurance companies to settle all the bills and accident related issues. I could always reach him for any questions / concerns. If he could not be reached, his team made sure he got the message and I always got the return call. Mr. John McCabe is very trustworthy and genuine lawyer. I would highly recommend John and his associates to anyone in need of legal representation."

-Sucheta Ruikar
