    I endorse this lawyer. JC and I have had a number of cases together and he has always been extremely honest and reasonable to have on the other side. JC works hard for his clients and is extremely efficient in his work. I strongly recommend him.

  • Elizabeth Ann Turner

    I have had the pleasure and opportunity to see J.C.'s work in several different venues, and it is consistently of the highest quality. J.C. is a strong advocate for his clients, fighting the fights that need to be fought while working to resolve issues that can and should be resolved short of court. I have a short list of attorneys I refer cases to; J.C. is on that list.
