John R.

Verified review

John was outstanding! Very accessible and spent the time needed to get a complete dismissal of the situation. My case had some unique intracices, and he was very understanding and considerate in the situation and addressed the issues when they needed to be taken care of. He walked through every possible outcome and also worked to give me his best advice. In this case, it was to push all in and call their bluff and it worked out very good! I'd recommend John Champan to anyone needing an understanding and wise decision maker.
