Ethical skilled legal writer
John is a very skilled legal writer. He stuck with me on a tough case and wrote well written briefs documenting the abuse I suffered. I am grateful for his help. He is also an ethical attorney and knows the court well.

Family Attorney | Feb 19
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I had the great experience of working with John at his law firm twelve years ago. I attribute my entry into family law, with a focus on international issues, to John, and his father’s, compassionate representation of clients, enthusiasm for the law, and calm and steadfast guidance to clients who were enduring the most difficult of situations. I became involved in the American Bar Association because of John’s example of always wanting to learn and help educate and guide other attorneys. John has been, since his initial days as a lawyer, an advocate for helping his clients proceed through the divorce process respectfully and cooperatively, always working towards a result that ensures the family can function just as well after marriage as during, and perhaps even better. When necessary, he is a tireless litigator and advocate, but I am always impressed with John’s use of alternative paths to helping a family dissolve in the healthiest way possible."
