  • Marla Merhab Robinson

    I highly endorse this lawyer's work. John and I met while on opposite side of an m&a deal. We have worked together many times since. I often seek John's advice and appreciate his mastery of the law. John is an exceptional lawyer whose clients appreciate that he is a "deal maker" and not a "deal breaker". He is, simply put, one of the best lawyers I've ever worked with.
