  • Barry Wayne Davidson

    I have worked with John for nearly twenty-five years, either as my co-counsel, or as my attorney in state court receivership cases. John always provides first class representation, with a thorough knowledge of the law, and a firm grasp of all relevant facts. I endorse John, and I will continue to recommend him to my clients that require litigation expertise and experienced trial counsel.
