Being a small business owner, it is always comforting to know that I have an attorney that accessible, competent and able to provide practical legal advice.  John has worked with our family business for over 15 years providing guidance in financing transactions, company and miscellaneous business matters.


I also have used John’s service for refinancing of my personal residence.


I would recommend John to small business owners and homeowners without hesitation.


Tom Kaseta, Vice President, Commercial Lender, NewAlliance Bank. 

I have worked with John in a variety of financing transaction over the last 5 years involving general commercial real estate, construction and construction to permanent loans (including a complicated $20 million project), condominium developments, residential subdivisions, lines of credit, and modifications of commercial loans.  I appreciate that John is accessible, knowledgeable, competent and can be flexible with his fees.    I know when John closes a loan, it will be closed the right way and he will follow up after the closing to make sure any and all open items are all addressed.


Chris MaNaboe, Exective Directior, Camp Horizons, Inc. 

John was one of the first attorneys to show his support for our mission to serve children and adults with developmental disabilities thirty years ago. With John's expertise we were able to incorporate as a non-profit agency. Since then John has continued to donate his time by advising us on financial transactions and other legal matters. John is also a faithful donor to our annual "Campaign for Campers." John is a true friend to Camp Horizons and I recommend him highly.  


Scott A. Craig, Principal, Craman Associates LLC

When my partner and I were establishing our new business venture, John was recommended to us by our commercial SBA lender.  John worked with us the SBA loan closing, on the lease negotiations, miscellaneous company issues and took the time to explain matters to us.  This helped make the SBA closing process much easier. 


I never hesitated to call him during the process knowing that he would be available to answer my questions by cutting through all the legal jargon.


Donald Lorusso, Senior Vice President, Collinsville Savings Society 

I have known John for almost twenty years and he has represented me in a variety of commercial loan transactions with various institutions, including Collinsville.  I appreciate John’s competence, knowledge and ability to get loans closed the right way all while being sensitive to the issue of legal fees.
