Client Comments

“John provided vigorous representation with a personalized dedication to our needs. He was extremely knowledgeable and diligent, always taking the time to personally ensure that we understood all aspects of the matter at hand. His availability, as well as the kindness and compassion that he showed is rare. The outcome in our case far exceeded anything we could have hoped for, and we are forever grateful. We could not have asked for better representation and would highly recommend him.”

Some of my highlights

I pride myself in assisting clients to find creative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to their legal problems.  To find these solutions, the client and I will first sit down and identify an ultimate goal and any foreseeable problems in obtaining that goal.  I then develop several methods for achieving the client’s objectives and assist the client in a risk/reward analysis.  This process allows the client to be actively involved in every step of the process and ensures the client makes well-informed decisions in reaching their goals.
