  • William Ralph Carlisle

    John has all three of the qualities I most admire in attorneys; curiosity, enthusiasm and tenacity. We both practice in the general area of defending debt collection and consumer protection and I am often impressed in our conversations with his grasp of the issues and the knowledge he has acquired regarding the collection industry and the motives and practices of debt collectors. Attorneys cannot guarantee the outcome of lawsuits, but they can guarantee the quality of the work to be performed. You are in good hands with John.

  • James Blount Griffin

    John is an energetic defender and advocate who has great curiosity. He is thorough and likes to learn everything about a topic in order to be prepared for whatever the other side throws at him. He has the brains and inquisitive nature necessary to practice in intellectual property. He has the competitive spirit necessary to win at trial. He loves to laugh, so working with him is a pleasure.
