  • Ralph Anthony Skilken

    I wholeheartedly endorse John. He is one of the most knowledgeable and most clever lawyers I've ever worked with. He is the kind of lawyer that other lawyers hire to help them. We got fabulous results in the case we worked together.

  • Richard Earl West

    John is a consummate debt relief attorney, for both consumer and business matters. More that this, he brings decades of practical experience to every case, often finding ways to accomplish amazing results not even considered by less experienced counsel. I regularly recommend his expertise to clients and colleagues.
