I have worked with (and opposite) John over the past 6 years in a series of matters, including a settlement class. John is a highly skilled lawyer who strongly advocates for his clients within the bounds of reasonableness and professionalism. Based upon my experiences with him, I am pleased to report that he brings great credit to himself and to the practice of law.

I have worked with John on approximately 60 cases since 1989, including wrongful death, products liability and medical malpractice cases. Many of these cases have been extremely complex cases. John has superb trial and litigation skills and high ethical attributes. He has all the attributes necessary to be awarded your highest rating. He is simply one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with.
