| Hired Attorney
John Sullivan has proven to be an outstanding attorney for our needs. Mr. Sullivan is so easy to work with. Our case was unique in the way that we live across the country in another state. Our case involved an estate. We had never been through this process and did not know what to expect. Mr. Sullivan made us very comfortable. From the very beginning he explained to us what our case would entail and gave us an approximate time in which it would be completed. He is great at updating and never minds taking a call. He has always been pleasant. Above all it is apparent that he is very knowledgable. We could not have asked for a more competent, knowledgeable and caring attorney due to our circumstance. We would not ever hesitate in contacting Mr. Sullivan again for any further legal needs that may arise in the future.
