"Over the years I have presented many challenges to John Boyd and Nancy Hollander, none of which have presented obstacles too great to overcome. The level of combined intelligence, competence, creativity, and expertise has been remarkable. Having succeeded on every level in every engagement, there is not a legal team I would rather be working with in any future challenge that may present itself." - JB
