  • Herbert A Thornbury

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with John on matters since his law school days when he did some work for us one summer. I do not practice in his area of expertise but have sent him literally dozens of clients over the years and have heard nothing but praise for the manner in which he handled the matter and the kindness and courteous demeanor he displays to those with whom he comes in contact whether it be the client or another attorney. I cannot recommend him more highly to a prospective client.
