John Iliff

Empathy, honesty, and preparation are the core tenets of John Iliff’s law practice. Focusing primarily on litigation and workers compensation, John has 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 work 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.
