John handled a multi million dollar complex bulk sale that included the sale of a business, the equipment of that business, and the real estate.
If you enter into a business contract and want an attorney that has 100% of your best interests in mind to protect you and has the knowledge to do it, John is the person to do just that.

It's hard to put into words the profound appreciation my family and I have for Mr. Messina. He has the unique ability to show strength and compassion at the same time, while instilling confidence in his professionalism, knowledge, and technical abilities. My wife and I could not be more pleased with his representation and commitment to our family. Thanks John

John Messina has been my attorney for over 10 years. Not only has he helped me with my businesses but he has also helped me in my personal life. When it comes to an attorney it is very difficult to find one you can trust and rely on. John not only gives me professional sound advice but also gives me piece of mind that I will be getting the best advice and services my money can buy. John has been my go to guy for many years for sound legal advice and I would not hesitate for one second recommending him to all of my family and friends. Thank you John for many years of service and I look forward to many more.
