    An extremely thorough, professional, and brilliant lawyer. John was able to sift through a large amount of research to understand the big picture at hand. He helped our association figure out an extremely complex land use situation and his findings have set us on the path to success. John was fantastic to work with and extremely responsive -- I could not recommend him more!

    I was referred to John by a colleague who recommended him as a "gentleman bulldog" and a "lawyers' lawyer". John is tenacious and unflagging in his work for his clients. One senses the respect and even deference of other parties dealing with him. They admire his legal expertise and skill at negotiation; they value his collegiality; and they think long and hard about litigating against him and his clients. Fighting City Hall in a zoning matter, John has been a superb advocate. Thanks, John.

    Embroiled in a miscarriage of zoning justice, I was referred to John Bannon by another attorney who called John a "gentleman bulldog" and a "lawyer's lawyer". In relying on John's advocacy, I have learned what this meant. He litigates when he must; he negotiates when he can; my best interests are his first consideration. Bannon is tenacious, tough, smart, and successful. Frankly, his excellent reputation precedes him in a way that truly benefits his clients as it gives his adversaries pause.

    Mr. Bannon used his remarkable skills and knowledge of land use law to craft a persuasive letter leading to the sustaining of Freeport's zoning ordinance and comprehensive plan against a determined effort to revise them in favor of commercial development in the town's rural residential areas. Without his extensive and exhaustive efforts, we would have been hard pressed as residents and taxpayers to rebuff the requested changes. Thank you, John Bannon.

    Peter is the best attorney I have ever used. He is a star with honor and a sense of the world. He evokes personal loyalty and actually earns his money by contributing for his clients. If he ran for office I would help. There is nothing I could say that would be as strong as I fell and think of this man. He is amazing. My shoe business and life is better because of him.
