Lawyer in Southern California
"J.P. deserves my highest recommendation. He is not only a top notch personal injury attorney but a top notch person and family man. I first meet J.P. through one of his college buddies who recommended J.P. very highly due to his lawyering skills and dependability. I then meet J.P. at his office to partner on a catastrophic personal injury case that occurred in California where I am located. I found J.P.'s office staff to be highly skilled, very efficient and friendly. His files were in impeccable order. J.P.'s clients, who he was basically turning over to me, loved him due to the manner in which they have been treated and the professionalism of his past performance for members of their church group. J.P. is a credit to his profession and a true gentleman."
