John is an excellent attorney and my husband and I highly recommend him. He is a straight shooter and knows and understands law. He is intelligent, ethical, reliable, reasonable and easy to work with. He knows what he can handle and always refers us to just the right attorney in his firm if we need help in areas outside his expertise.
He has been our business attorney for 8 years and we recommend him whenever we can.

Our small private company was the plaintiff in a complex anti-trust case which involved one of the largest media companies in the world. As our lead attorney throughout those years, John did a very effective job of navigating the difficult and murky waters of anti-trust litigation, building an impressive case and ultimately bringing that case to trial.
More importantly, John was able to effectively litigate in our behalf so that the otherwise overpowering actions of our competitor and its allies were confined enough that we could survive and grow during the years it took to bring the matter to trial.
I found John’s integrity, work ethic and genuine concern for our employees and customers to be memorable and often, inspiring. Over the years, I’ve also found that the lessons learned while working with John have repeatedly been of significant and recurring benefit (including the ongoing reduction of legal expenses that might otherwise have been incurred).

John was extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner and did his best to keep me updated on new developments. My case never went to trial, so I can't speak to any specifics in that realm.
He is easy to talk to and seems to genuinely care about his clients.
I would not hesitate to contact him again, if the need arose.
