Visiting, or interacting with, this website does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. Although we are always interested in hearing from visitors to our website, we cannot accept representation on a new matter from either existing clients or new clients until we know that we do not have a conflict of interest that would prevent us from doing so. Therefore, please do not send us any information about any new matter that may involve a potential legal representation until we have confirmed that a conflict of interest does not exist and we have expressly agreed in writing to the representation. Until there is such an agreement, we will not be deemed to have given you any advice, any information you send may not be deemed privileged and confidential, and we may be able to represent adverse parties.


John Speer’s complex litigation practice is devoted to providing clients, primarily financial institutions, with advice and representation when they face significant financial or operational risks. Quoted by Chambers USA as having “extremely good judgment” (from Chambers USA 2013), John’s representation of financial institutions spans more than 30 years and involves assisting them with disputes involving federal and state laws and regulations applicable to banks and mortgage companies.
