JOHN KNAPPMANN BACKGROUND:
Over 30 years of full time heavy courtroom strategic negotiating, litigation, trial experience, (includes 12 years as a former Wayne County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney & Civil Litigator), John has seen cases from the beginning through to the end. We never use another law firm or outside attorneys to "help" or "perform" litigation or go to court for us (as other law firms and attorneys occasionally do).
Whether your legal situation is estate planning, probate, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, elder law, criminal defense, the best defense is never having to go to court! Exercising the current laws to your benefit is what we do best and the outcome for our clients. Having an effective attorney can be the difference of thousands of dollars, diminish stress and streamline your legal situation for you.
