  • Kenneth Ronald Smith

    Powers is a powerful lawyer and advocate! I met John while attending the National College for DUI Defense's summer session, which was recently hosted on the campus of Harvard's law school. I saw him in action and was most impressed with his work. I left with two thoughts: 1. If I was charged with a crime in his practice area, he would be my first call for representation; and 2. I need to add his name to my rolodex for potential client referrals. If you are in trouble and need some legal help, give John a call.
