Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Joshua H Reinitz

    I have seen John's career skyrocket from the first days he opened up his practice. John is a zealous, aggressive defender of his clients. His perserverence and skill often are the difference in achieving the results his clients need. I endorse John.

  • Amy Elizabeth Stutzke

    I endorse this lawyer. John is quite possibly one of the most intense people I have ever met. He goes hard and gives 110% at everything he does. This intensity alone gives John an unparalleled edge over other criminal defense attorneys in the state. He is the type of attorney that gets straight to the point, and will not waste anyone’s time or money. He is a fearless advocate, always ready to take a case to trial if need be. If you make the wise choice of retaining John, he will offer you individualized services, a kind ear, and, most importantly, aggressive advocacy.
