  • Stephen J Spano

    I endorse this lawyer. John is an incredibly intelligent and compassionate attorney. His dedication to elder law and the plight of the disadvantaged is remarkable. I do not know where he finds the time to do all that he does for others.

  • Judith A. McDougall-Flynn

    I've worked with John for a few years on the Board of Directors of the Mass Chapter of NAELA, where he has dedicated a great deal of time and expertise to advocate for seniors and people with special needs. He is a very competent and knowledgeable elder law and estate planning attorney, and I highly recommend John to any body needing assistance with elder law issues.
