      I have known Don McKenna for approximately 18 years. During this time, both my law partners and I have had occassion to practice both with and against Don. At all times, he has demonstrated exceptional skills as an attorney, in every phase of the profession, and he has done so while maintaining the highest of ethical standards. I practice law on a regional if not national basis and have encountered many different lawyers over the years. Put simply, Don McKenna is among the very best.
