He appreciates their trust in him and has dedicated his entire career to fighting and protecting his client's constitutional rights. John's aggressive advocacy and a commons sense approach to presenting his client's side of the case sets him apart from others and has established the standards for the attorneys he has selected to represent the firm's clients.
