John and his staff were very professional, supportive and considerate during a very difficult time for my husband and I. He was knowledgeable, informative and didn't miss a step in defending us. It was a pleasure doing business with him!

Extraordinary Legal Counsel
John effectively and efficiently arranged a restructuring of my debts when I unexpectedly became disabled and had to retire. He was not only thoroughly professional but also very personable and extraordinary in the care he took to make sure I was fully informed and that he was easily accessible to me throughout the process. I am very fortunate to have the benefit of his expertise and wisdom.

Fantastic lawyer and great person
John was introduced to me by a mutual friend and he helped me organize and get through my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. You'd be in great hands with him!
