Honest, hard working, straight shooting
First time I talked to him I said just don't beat around the bush with anything and I can say he has been as honest and open as possible. Very respectful and always made himself available to talk. That was the part I respected the most was how personable he was at every stage. He was never about the money but trying to do what was right. Nothing but positive reviews from me.

Need a lawyer
I have used john for yrs ! He has always been honest and never tried to push me into something that would hurt me in the future. I would use him again . If someone needs a lawyer he is for sure a great lawyer and tells it like it is . It’s not all about the money for him he really cares about his job.

Never recommend
He failed to do what he said he would do and it cost my husband who is very sick man 9 year's of his life. We ask him to have the plea withdrawn and do as he agreed to do. He was very rude and said and I quote he words to me bring me $2,500. dollars if you want to talk. I have it recorded. I would never recommend him to anyone.
