Fourth, we are passionate about agriculture. John wants to see farmers succeed and are committed to seeing the continuation of family farms.
It just makes sense to choose our office to assist you. Some attorneys claim to know agriculture, but have never held an ear of corn in their life. Or, they will tell you that they “grew up on a farm”, which may have been decades ago, and will attempt to convince you because of life on the farm 40 years ago, they know farming in the present day era. If you have a fellow farmer as an attorney, you can practically guarantee your attorney will know the ins and outs of your legal matter because they, like you, are actively farming.
Don’t put the fate of your farm or other legal matters in the hands of an attorney who claims to know farming. Trust an attorney who, like you, is a farmer, and can assist you better due to our farming knowledge.
