Excellent attorney - timely and professional
John Bachofner was retained for me by my insurance company. John handled my case with the utmost professionalism - he was timely on all responses, easy to reach at any time, and very knowledgeable on the subject. My case was a case of great emotional difficulty and John was always kind and sensitive to that fact. I felt like John genuinely cared about me and my children personally and he took great care to make sure all of our legal needs were handled in the best possible way. I'm very grateful to my insurance company for providing such an excellent attorney and will definitely recommend him to my friends and family members.
