"John is both enthusiastic and knowledgeable, making his clients feel confident, comfortable and most important... Excited about this major upgrade in life. His experience shows in the best ways because he can summarize well and point out the key details in the vast legal documentation. He was always ready to stop, slow down and describe certain verbiage and always treated us with the utmost care and respect. We were lucky to work with him. Credit is also due to the many hard-working staff in his office, that made this process swift and transparent."
