    John helped a close friend of mine endure and eventually resolve a ghastly set of felony charges. He did an outstanding job!{para}He listens carefully (even when he seems he's not listening). He's understanding and abounds with common sense. He's knowledgeable--both of the law and of human nature. And he has a great sense of humor.{para}I'm happy to have met him. I trust him and I'm very grateful he represented my friend.
