I have been working with John on a complex construction project (tunneling) for a common client for a couple of years now. In my 30+ years as a lawyer, I have never met a more knowedgeable, practical and competent construction lawyer. He knows his stuff. Highly recommended.
John's record and skill speaks for itself - he is top in his field. However, I wanted to briefly add that I had the very good fortune of working with John Parnass on a piece of highly litigious construction litigation several years ago. I was working for Peter Buck, (now of The Buck Law Group, formerly with Buck & Gordon) who asked John to associate in as counsel - we needed his construction defect expertise in the arbitration proceedings. We worked with John for over a year on that case. The highlight of that difficult dispute was watching John present our clients' case before the 3-attorney arbitration panel in a week-long proceeding. His handling of the testimony, the exhibits, the cross-examination of experts and hostile witnesses and his presentation as a whole was flawless and resulted in an outstanding victory for our client. I can't say enough good things about John as a skilled litigator and top-notch attorney.
