  • William A Markham

    John is one of the best civil litigators I have ever known. He is brilliant, extremely well versed in procedures and various fields of substantive law, and very decent. He is able to state compelling arguments that appeal to the disinterested listener's sense of fairness and justice. He is able to help his clients resolve really difficult, complex disputes. He is also a very decent, conscientious attorney. I endorse his work.
