I enjoy problem solving, and work with individual and business clients to help them solve problems. At times it is necessary to fight to help your client, but other times the client is better served, and more economically served, by working toward a resolution of the problem instead of continuing to fight about the problem. The best satisfaction I can get as a lawyer is working with my client to solve their problem.

Employment contract and stock purchase agreement
John listened very closely to my situation and the objectives I wanted to accomplish with an employment contract and stock purchase agreement. He had great insight on ways to achieve mutual agreement and offered very good advice. I would highly recommend John.

Thanks for retrieving the funds I was due, per signed contract.
Thank you John for the professional, fast and positive results, in both legal situations I encountered in the past 16 months with my business. As a senior citizen and retired widow, many people in the business world like to take advantage of my situation, but with an advocate such as you in my corner, it's a different story. Many thanks and best wishes on your new practice.
