Attorney John P. Francoeur, of Counsel

I enjoy being a lawyer because of the help an attorney can offer.People thinking about hiring a lawyer often have some ideas about how to resolve their particular situation.Through listening closely to my clients, and being my knowledge of the law I am able to clearly answer questions and together with the client chart a course forward. Using a listening and collaborative process my clients are able to successfully meet their goals.

I am able to aggressively represent and defend my client's interest when that is what a case calls for. But I also am able to find creative solutions and negotiate adversarial relationships so that the amount of time and cost are greatly reduced.
