  • Daniel B Stageman

    It's not often a wicked-smart lawyer also is fun to hang with. But John is one of those rare birds.

    I had the pleasure and honor to meet John when we did a course for a few weeks. During that time, I learned a lot from and about him. John is not only a very charismatic individual, but a compassionate attorney. He truly wants to help and cares about each and every one of his clients. If you are looking for someone who fights and never back down, but how listens and cares at the same time, that's John Alexander. I recommend him without reservations.
