John (Jack) helped me with a bogus assault charge with a delusional ex-girlfriend that she made up when I decided to break it off with her. Not only did Jack take the time to put his full effort into the case, he made it a point to be personal with me and really care about my general well being. To make a long story short, Jack is a great attorney and helped me walk away from the court system unscathed and with my head back on my shoulders. I highly recommend.
Jack was wonderful while handling my divorce. He asked many good probing questions but always explained first why he needed to ask, why the information was meaningful. He allowed me to choose the specific parts of the whole action that I needed representation for, and never pressured me to file additional documents or actions that were not needed in my specific case. Jack took great pains to explain everything he was doing so I could question anything I didn't understand. He kept me informed throughout the relatively short process so I knew what was happening at any given time, and knew when to expect completion, barring any difficulties. Thankfully there were none. Compared to most lawyers I have dealt with in the past this felt more personal and less dramatic due to Jack's gentle handling of the entire process. I am grateful to have had him to guide me through a difficult and painful process, one that he handled with respect and that quiet calm one hopes for in a great lawyer.
I hired John to represent myself in my child custody case. He was very responsive, prompt with all meetings and correspondence, and displayed empathy for my situation throughout the entire process. He was very knowledgable with the legal process, and continually presented alternative routes and options regarding the case. On a personal level, he seems to just be a heck of a nice guy. Don't let his lack of experience fool you...he can be a bulldog when necessary, but knows how to differentiate between when he should and should not aggressively pursue points of contention.
John handled my case the way every lawyer should handle a case; with prompt professionalism and helpfulness that made me feel like an important client, as opposed to another case number. John helped me swim through the legal jargon and understand fully what needed to be completed; and then did everything in his power to make it happen smoothly. I would fully recommend him without question to anyone who needs legal guidance.
