    John is an excellent litigator with whom I have worked on a number of matters, receiving outstanding results in each case for which I used him as a litigator. He has tried cases, and he has excellent practical knowledge of the courtroom and courthouse, judges and jurors, and knows the ropes. I like him as a lawyer and as an individual.
