Great Lawyer
My experience with John was great. He was very prompt to return my calls and made me feel relieved about my accident. He's so nice and patient. My previous attorney didn't give me as much attention to my case as John did. John was good about keeping me informed even when I didn't ask. I'll definitely call him again if I need anything in the future. Thanks John!
