    I recently worked with John on a nuanced commercial transaction that took many twists and turns and included forming and funding an ESOP. Throughout the process John proved to be a valuable advisor and problem solver with skill in both the underlying body of law as well as the spirit of the law and the transaction. He helped make a difference in a difficult transaction.

    McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton is a first class law firm. We first sought out their service because a friend worked for them. However, we soon realized that their entire staff is incredible. They were professional, yet warm, friendly and caring. Furthermore, they were very quick to prepare our documents and get everything taken care of for us. We felt like very valued customers, and we would highly recommend this firm.
