What our Clients are saying
I hired John after I had been hit while biking. After talking with John I felt really comfortable with having him take over the details of my case and making the decisions regarding how to proceed. It was a huge relief to not have to deal with the insurance companies because I was still emotional about the accident. John was able to recover far more than I ever expected and made the process very easy for me.
Cindy C., Boulder, CO (Auto v. Bicycle Collision)
I was Hit from behind by an out of control skier . The impact was so severe it knocked me out for a couple of minutes. My family vacation was ruined and I was left with a concussion, a mountain of medical bills, and a fear of ever skiing again. John handled my case against the skier who was from Philadelphia. I am very pleased with the result and John's professionalism. Highly recommend!
Patricia y. , Denver, CO (skier v. skier collision)
I spoke with John a few months before hiring him as my attorney to gain some perspective. My only regret is that I did not retain him to represent my interests from the start. John was very clear in his communication and effective in achieving the best resolution on my behalf. I would highly recommend him to anyone that has suffered an injury at no fault of their own.
John R. F,, Denver, CO (Auto collision)
I was hit head-on by a car while out on a training ride. After trying to deal with the insurance companies on my own for two years I couldn’t handle it any longer. I came to John about my case, and he graciously stepped in and worked diligently to help get me what I deserved. It was such a relief to have him lift the burden of the insurance companies off my back. John went further than just working with insurance companies on my behalf: he made sure I saw doctors and got the help I needed to get back on my feet after the accident. It’s thanks to him that I have recovered so quickly. I am extremely grateful for John's hard work with my case, and I highly recommend him to help you through your accident. It's the best decision you can make!
Eric S., Erie, CO (Auto v. Bike collision)
John was at my side less than 24 hours after my fall and was attentive throughout the entire process. My personal well-being was always top of mind with John when dealing with the parties involved. I never for a minute felt that he didn’t have my best interest top of mind. John’s ethics and overall knowledge in the industry made me feel 100% at ease during a very stressful time.
