  • Andrew Richard Bucher

    I endorse this lawyer. John is an impressive attorney whose knowledge and resolve truly set him apart. When choosing an attorney to defend you for DUI you must choose one who will try cases, Jon's legal philosophy fits this mold. I had the good fortune to meet Jon at the nation's most advanced DUI Blood Evidence training for attorneys. Jon's combination of trial skill and advanced training make him an excellent choice when selecting a DUI defense attorney.
