    I have the utmost confidence in John's legal ability, judgment and discretion. John and I worked together for over ten years on numerous matters and the results were always good. John's personality enables him to disarm difficult opposing counsel and engender cooperation from reluctant witnesses. If I or a family member were sued, I would ask John to be our attorney.
