  • Benjamin Louis Taylor

    I had the opportunity to work with John this summer and endorse him without hesitation. He is a truly gifted and dedicated lawyer who is an asset to the profession and his community. He's also a graduate of the "Milk Barn" at Gerry Spence's Trial College along with me and a dozen other fine lawyers. John has the skills, tenacity and heart to take any case to trial and win and I know I certainly learned a great deal from him this summer at the trial college. He is the person to hire if you've suffered a serious injury. No question.

  • James Robin McKinney Jr

    I endorse this lawyer. I met John this summer at The Trial Lawyers College that was founded by Gerry Spence . I found John's work ethic and his compassion to his clients are amazing . The trial skills that John developed at the college will serve any of his clients well. Any lawyer that is willing to spend three weeks working on their trial skills is worth consulting about their legal problem.
