John Iliff

Empathy, honesty, and preparation are the core tenets of John’s law practice. Focusing primarily on litigation and workers compensation, John has a unique background. Before going to law school and beginning the practice of law, John was drafted and served in the United States Army, completed a Master’s degree in counseling and human services, and worked as a counselor and educator. This background has influenced his approach to the practice of law: he listens to his client’s needs and goals, honestly evaluates and discusses with his clients possible outcomes, and then thoroughly prepares to achieve the best possible result.
