We desire to be different. Our firm believes that everyone deserves justice and the finest legal representation at a fair price and to be treated with respect and personal attention- to personally know their lawyer. We live in a world where injury claims are treated like “fast food,” lawyers spend millions advertising to collect as many cases as they can. You are not a “case.” You are a person. With a problem. And need help.
John’s grandfather and great grandfather practiced law in a world that was less about “self” and the dollar and more about advocating for those who needed someone trustworthy to fight for them. John’s mission is to help people one-by-one and develop friendships with his clients along the way. Personal attention is still available in the practice of law.
We take pride in our state-of-the-art courtroom technology. Each personal injury attorney in the firm is adept at using focus groups and mock juries and innovative, demonstrative evidence. The firm is equipped with a state-of-the-art computer system, video production, and John has more anatomic and biological models than most physicians in town. It’s a science and we work hard to know the science very well and convey it to adjusters, jurors, judges and you simply and passionately.
