  • John F Medler Jr

    John is a fantastic lawyer, and knows more about medical malpractice than any lawyer I know. But medical malpractice is not his only field of expertise. I would highly recommend him for any catastrophic injury case or wrongful death case. He is also a really nice guy.

  • Jill S. Bollwerk

    I was privileged to work with and for John early in my career. Not only is he a really nice guy, he is also one of the best and most knowledgeable litigators in the state.
