WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“John has a great reputation in his area.”
“Not only is he very knowledgeable, he also keeps me well informed.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"I consider myself to be part of the client’s team. One of the things that can be frustrating as a litigator is that the role is often viewed as preventing damage, rather than building value. While we are engaged to prevent the damage that litigation can cause, my goal is to create a winning/ value-added experience for the client both by defending the company in a cost-effective, innovative way and by helping it improve its operations whenever possible."
