A lawyer who has your back
I worked with John on a family trusts case. It was an extremely stressful experience. I cannot even imagine not having John representing me in this matter. He handled the case with upmost diligence, care and concern. I truly felt he had my best interest at hand. When I was looking for a lawyer. One thing that stood out to me was the fact he had 20 years experience. I can honestly tell you, John really knows his stuff! If I ever had a question, he took the time and explained all the legal jargon and process to me. He always was two steps ahead during the case. So there were no "surprises". Only a lawyer with experience can do that. I was very pleased with the outcome of this case. I have referred John's services to friends of mine knowing they will get expert representation in their matters. John has your back!!!

Excellent Attorney
John is genuine, patient and knowledgeable. My sister and I went to John for help with a living trust that had been done by another attorney 14 years earlier. John was extremely helpful in guiding us through and in resolving the problem for us. It is clear that he knows his field and expertise. I appreciated his amiable persona and how he spelled out the various options available to us. Definitely recommend him.

Great experience.
My family hired John to do our estate planning last year, to do a trust, and wills for us after he was highly recommended by a friend of mine. We were very happy with the services he provided us. He was very knowledgeable, and guided us through the process, taking time to answer all our questions to make sure all our issues were taken care of. I have recommended him to others and will be using his services again.
