"We highly recommend John. After being frustrated with lack of response time, clarity and unforeseen charges from various firms, small to large, it was refreshing to find someone thorough, comprehensively experienced, efficient and effective. John has been our go to counsel going on 6 years now. We are grateful to have found him, which was through a friend's recommendation."
