    I have known John Haas for over 10 years now: as a fellow attorney practicing in Denver, as the attorney who represented me in my divorce, and as a friend. I can say without a doubt that I am glad to have known John in all these capacities, and am better off for it. He is a respected member of the legal community, did an outstanding job handling my divorce, and is a good friend. If you want your attorney to listen to your needs and provide you with effective representation, John's your man.

    Mr. Haas is among the leading divorce lawyers in the Denver Metropolitan Area and I thoroughly believe that he will put up the fight that the client requires, but remains equally objective about the position that the client may be in. You will not go wrong with hiring Mr. Haas.
