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 that needed someone trustworthy to fight for them.  John’s mission it 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.
