I have worked for and with John Zgourides. I've watched him win multi-million dollar verdicts. He is relentless in discovery and advocating for his clients. He leaves no stone unturned and makes a mighty presence in the courtroom. He also represented me in two personal matters which included mediation. I recommend John with no reservation and would not hesitate to call upon him again. If you need a great lawyer or mediator, he's the "go to" attorney you should call. Did I mention that he's also a great mediator?

John was, during the entire process kept me well informed and openly discussed all of my options and opportunities, rating the probability of each...what more could a client ask?

John Zgourides represented my family-owned bolt company, Madden Bolt Corporation, in a personal injury case that could have put us out of business. A worker with fractured vertebrae in his neck claimed to have been hit by a large steel item that was thrown by a fellow worker. John 's cross-examination showed that the worker was lying and the jury found we were not negligent.
John also defended Madden Bolt in a products liability action where a iron worker fell 40 feet and was catastrophically injured. The plaintiff did not sue my company, but the general contractor and sub-contractors sued us, claiming that our steel anchor bolts were defective. John hired a reknowned metallurgist from Rice University who performed testing on the steel and proved that the steel performed exactly to the specifications of the co-defendant that ordered it from Madden Bolt. The claims against my company were dismissed.
