Experience - matters!
Forceful Advocacy
Get the Facts First
Find the Resources

John P. Flannery has more than 40 years of experience, as a ny federal and state prosecutor, defense counsel, private litigator and government counsel.   John was Special Counsel to the US Senate and House Judiciary Committees.  John has had to use what he knows about the media in some cases to meet false charges or characterizations, to set the record straight, but he prefers not to do so - as with free media you get what you pay for.  

It's not enough to be articulate out of the court room.  What matters is can you argue on your feet.  Because of the Jesuits teachings, his service as a law clerk, and prosecuting cases, John has learned what it means to be an advocate.  You can't win the argument you don't make, and John is good at spotting those issues worth arguing about.

John's office may be cluttered because getting the facts first and getting them right are what helps counsel and client to know what claims and defenses they have.  Even when you have no obligation to prove anything in a case, it matters if you can prove something that may carry the day.

Cases are often decided not on the merits but on a lot of other things including having the resources to wage the fight.  Some cases are like elective surgery, you don't have to file the suit.  But there are other cases where you have to litigate, to start a civil action to save your business or to defend against a criminal prosecution.  We could pretend it's not a problem but it is for anyone.
