Superb Representation
I was fortunate to retain John Valentino as my attorney during one of the lowest points in my life. John not only provided the best legal advice, but he guided me through a very difficult situation so I could make the best choices for myself and my family. I found John to be highly knowledgeable, straight forward, professional and resourceful. John knows employment law and he provided practical and strategic advice that was perfect.
