I have had the pleasure to work with J on several complex negotiations and business formation issues. While his grasp on the subject matter is impressive, what sets him apart from his peers is his ability to see the big picture and construct truly "win-win" outcomes. Additionally, he represents his clients with zeal and I have never witnessed him give less than 100% on each transaction.
