"Many months ago I was referred to an attorney named John Wells. Due to the content of the case, John was professionally sensitive to my needs. I came into the case with a lack of understanding of legal terms. However, John very quickly and with deliberation, explained information (developments) and was a powerful advocate for me. I felt comfortable talking to him and could tell that he was honest and trustworthy. I highly recommend John Wells to anyone seeking an attorney."
