"JJ is the consummate professional. High attention to detail but still very much down to earth in dealing with people."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Co-worker
"JJ is the premier attorney in the area for criminal practice. He has handled hundreds of cases from both the state and the defense and has an impeccable reputation from both sides. Judges not only respect JJ in the courtroom, they often look to him as an expert in the area of law enforcement. Without hesitation, I recommend JJ and would personally use him as an attorney should I ever need those services."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 26
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have tried cases against Mr. Sauve in both District and Superior Court while he was a district attorney. He was always well prepared, quick to respond to calls/emails, and was generally a pleasure to work with."
