John and his staff are knowledgeable, practical and down-to-earth. They have the experience so necessary in dealing with sensitive family issues. They kept us informed and were always reachable when we needed a quick word of advice.

John has been the legal counsel for a number of my senior clients and they were happy with his assistance.
I called him when one of my company's clients announced in a very insulting letter that she was only going to pay 75% of the $6,000 bill she owed. I became furious. We had worked very hard for her, and she had been nasty throughout. Furthermore all of the things she complained about were her own fault.
John got me to look at the situation with less emotion. If I fought her in court, the judge would be likely to split the difference. I’d have spent time and worry and only gained another $700. If I had John represent me for a day in court, it would have cost more than $700. And what if the judge decided in her favor? I would have lost more yet.
John could have encouraged me to sue her and made more money himself. But instead he got me to see that I could cash her skimpy check and walk away with a guaranteed amount of money with no need for any additional time on my part.
In the end he wrote her a letter that required that she agree that my company would be freed of any further claims from her, if I accept the lesser payment. He managed to word it in a way that wouldn't offend her, so that she would be likely to let it all come to an end.
John charged me for only one hour to write the letter. And I was able to close that ugly chapter without losing any more money or sleep on it.
