  • Stephen Alexander Shechtel

    I endorse John. We have been co-counsel on cases, and opposing counsel on cases. John is one of those rare attorneys who can quickly sum up a case, identify the issues, and move towards finding the best result for his clients. He is well respected in the Courtroom, is prepared, and does not try to BS his way through a case. That is why I respect John. That is why I will refer my clients to John when appropriate.
