Highly Recommended Attorney
I have used John Evans as an attorney on several occasions, and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counseling. John is always the first person I call when I have a question or situation that requires and attorney's advice. One of the things that I appreciate about John the most is that if he does not know the answer or feel confident about his subject expertise on the matter, he states that up front. He then works diligently to help find the people that do. This standard that he holds for the service that he provides to his clients makes it the choice easy for me to call him first on all matters. John is personable and extremely trustworthy, and will make everyone that hires him both comfortable and confident with their decision.
