I was blessed to have met John
When you go through a traumatic event, there are roller coasters of emotions and feelings. Sometimes you don't know which way is up....... When I met John and he took my case and led me through every step! He kept me informed and handled my case with the upmost respect for my family. He truly did everything right by my kids and I. I have recommended John several times after my case was settled. I would never recommend any one else!
