About me

I am a man who loves his work. I don't "do lunch"; I study, research and strive to be the best at what I do.  I been fortunate enough to limit my practice to mortgage finance and real estate law which has allowed me to imerse myself in what hasprobably become the most rapidly developing area of law since the civil rights movement.  The collapse of the mortgage lending industry and resulting devastation of homeowners' networth and economic stabilty throughout the nation has created an amazing opportunity for me to use my specialize knowledge to genuinely aide pleople save their homes and fight back against the abuses of the finance and lending industry that created the problem and now arrogantly defies the outcry for assistance to survive financial tsunami that has followed. 

I you are looking for someone that is committed to you who has extensive practical experience and intellectual understanding of both the "business of money lending" and vast maze of laws and regulations that were callously abused and ignored for profit at your expense then you we should talk.

  • Elizabeth Rankin Powell

    I endorse this lawyer. I had the great good luck to have John as an opposing counsel in a fairly complex real property matter a few years ago. He did an excellent job for his client and was the epitome of professionalism at all times.
