John is a straight up and easy going guy. Before the trial started I was getting nervous as here is this guy that comes across as being too laid back and never worried about anything and constantly smiling and saying everything is ok. But once he was in the court room in front of everyone he was a different man. He treated my case as if it was himself that was on trial and not me. He was forceful with out crossing the line. He drilled down to the core facts and picked up on any discrepancy there was and hammered them home till the witnesses were doubting themselves, and was priceless to watch it happen. Then coming out of the court room he was back to being the good guy that he is. He looked after my family by keeping them informed and answered their questions about what was happening and going to happen, and I know they thank him for it. But most of all I thank him and would recommend him to anyone that needs a good lawyer.
