John has, on two separate occasions, provided employment counsel that was wise, straight-forward, and clear, resulting in a very successful conclusion to the matter being addressed. John was able to quickly identify the key points of contention, suggest effective ways to present my points, and the result in both cases was an efficient and effective, and highly satisfying conclusion. I have personally referred more than a few people to John and the feedback I get is consistent with my experience as described.

John Marshall held my hand and guided me through one of the most difficult professional (and personal) experiences of my life. Not only was he patient with all of my many questions but he gave me individualized answers that made sense for my unique situation. I never felt like I was "just another client" or that he was leading me in a direction that was more beneficial to his agenda and timeline than to mine. He was honest and direct but in a kind and empathetic way that never made me feel "small".
Because gender discrimination and retaliation were my issues, I believed a female attorney would be my best choice for an advocate. However, when I asked for recommendations from my attorney friends (many of whom are women) John was recommended more than any other. They informed me that if they were in a similar situation, John would be their first choice for representation. I took their advice and I'm glad I did...
My situation was resolved in a very timely manner to the "mutual satisfaction" of all involved. When this all started, I never thought I would be able to say that. I figured I would be dealing with this for years. But with John's knowledge of the law and understanding of our State and Federal systems, I was given 2 years of my life back along with closure.
Finally, my personal situation called for some additional "after the paperwork was signed" legal help. John and his team offered to assist and have been there to guide me through these "extra" steps. While this is above and beyond what was initially agreed to, John is committed to assuring all loose ends are tied up and that I am satisfied, not just with the initial results, but with the entire experience.
Speaking from personal experience, as I've been in the client service industry my entire career, finding a service professional who voluntarily continues to work after their fee has been collected, is like finding a diamond in the rough.
John is a gem, indeed.

John Marshall is a leader in the Columbus and Ohio legal communities, particularly among those who represent employees. His combination of effectiveness, integrity, and courtesy is unique in our field. He is the first person I would think of when referring an employment case to another lawyer.
