John McInnes

When the unexpected happens, you want someone on your team who can handle the challenge head on and without pause.  John McInnes is that person.

An avid football fan and armchair quarterback, John knows the importance of team-work and is a born leader.  Whether it be his meticulous attention to detail—among other things, he’s a stickler for correct spelling and punctuation—or the academic rigors he puts himself through in order to master any subject he undertakes, John is always putting forth his A-game.

Around the office John is a mellowing influence when the unpredictable inevitably happens.  But the opponent that is fooled by this does so at their own peril.  For under his calm and steady exterior beats the heart of a fighter, a litigator who prepares for every contingency, a competitor who goes to battle to win for his clients no matter the odds.  A risk-taker by nature, John is nevertheless a savvy tactician and skilled negotiator who is willing to do what it takes to win the long game.  No “Yes Man,” John has earned the trust of his clients not by telling them what they want to hear, but by telling them what they need to know.  John is the team’s captain, MVP and coach all rolled up into one package.
