Estate handling
John handled my brothers estate for me, and made this very difficult process, very easy and smooth! John answered all my questions and concerns in a very timely matter, and always got back to me when I needed him, his secretary Brittany was always helpful too, getting my questions answered! I would recommend John to all my friends!

John has represented me many times over the last 7 years starting with my divorce to order of protection and custody. He explains every step of the process thoroughly. He is exceptional in court, good at setting traps.

Traffic ticket
John helped me with a traffic ticket that I felt was unwarranted. He listened to my concerns and helped me get a favorable result. He was easy to talk to and personable, I would absolutely recommend him!!

John did great with my divorce proceedings. Was very clear and upfront about the steps needed in the process. Even with COVID-19 presenting obstacles, everything ran smoothly.
