I have had occasion to defend actions against, and work with John Fumero in administrative actions. His knowledge of administrative law combined with his presence, personality and attention to detail (a quality that is lacking in most attorneys), makes Mr. Fumero the obvious choice for someone involved in an administrative dispute. Mr. Fumero has a broad-based background that allows him to comfortably and artfully navigate in the realm of administrative law. I consider Mr. Fumero to be "an attorney's attorney."
