    John Brooke is a friend of mine. He and I met during law school in San Diego and although we have not yet had the opportunity to work together professionally, I trust his integrity and work ethic. As an individual, he is considerate and thoughtful. I know that John Brooke's work enhances the legal profession; I am proud to call him my trusted colleague on the east coast.
