John was wonderful from the start. He explained everything we were to go through with my husband's case, and was always available to answer questions. I gave him lots of information and he compiled it and found the win! We highly recommend him and won't hesitate to use him again should the need arise! Thank you John, our lives are finally back on the right track!

I used John's services for an OJI case and would not hesitate to neither recommend him or use him again. Not your typical big mouth, but a very efficient, polite, knowledgeable, and relaxed Lawyer.

Mr. Sharpless was caring but at the same time very aggressive and knew how and what to ask me and say to the judge. My case was approved.

I've known John for about 15 years. I've had the privilege of witnessing his attitude and approach in a variety of roles . I've always found him to be unflinchingly honest, extremely intelligent, and highly respected. He goes "above and beyond" for his clients, as a matter of course. I wholeheartedly endorse John without any reservation whatsoever. He is a most impressive colleague and nothing short of an immense credit, to our profession. Truly one of a kind.
