“I was very fortunate since he mainly deals with healthcare and knows the ins and outs of the Nursing Boards. He knows what they want and expect from you as a licensee and the steps to keep and save your license. Throughout the whole process I just thought worst case scenario that I would lose it. But his calming demeanor and reassurance made me feel so much better.”

– A Licensing Client (2016)

“The way he carries himself in the courtroom and the respect he gets is unbelievable.. So if you find yourself in a situation where you need to save your license and livelihood without a doubt hire John.”

“John was an amazing lawyer for me. He helped me obtain a full/clear license with the department of Insurance after I was denied. He walked me through the process step by step and helped me understand what to expect and what needed to be done on my part. I would highly recommend John for anyone who would need help through the process of trying to obtain and professional license.”
