Great Firm
I have used John Bellus over the last 3 years. I have found him to be diligent and extremely well versed in the contract and construction law. If I would have used him prior to this I would not have needed his services as much. I found John billing practices to be very fair which I cant say for a lot of the larger firms where it seems like I was always getting stung at any possible opportunity. On a personal note, John likes to win.
