I have been admitted to practice law in the State of NH since 1995, a graduate of the University of NH School of Law with 21 years of legal experience, Law clerked for the Honorable Clifford Kinghorn for two years in law school and 3 years as an associate, and 18 years as a partner with The Law Firm of Wilson, Bush, Durkin, & Keefe. Experienced in the courtroom as well as at settlements and mediation venues.
John represents me in a post-divorce child support/custody action. Since I have worked in the legal field for a number of years, I was committed to finding an attorney whose approach was both practical and assertive. John has deep practical experience and a courtroom acumen that is second to none. He is smart, prepared, talented, and has been a tireless advocate for both me and my children. Family matters can be both emotional and contentious at times, John knows the law and its implications, he always takes the time to answer my questions, no matter how trivial. He is honest and ethical and he and his assistant Kathy have raised the bar on professionalism. They have been completely committed to serving my needs and I feel incredibly fortunate to have them advocating for me.
