The McLane Law Firm is pleased to present John Weaver with the firm’s annual Client Service Award.

McLane’s Client Service Award is named in honor of John A. Graf, a partner in the firm who was relentlessly focused on solving his clients’ problem. The award is provided annually to the McLane attorney, paralegal, or staff member who exemplifies the highest level of client responsiveness and excellence in service based on colleague observation, peer reviews, and client recommendations and commendations.

Bruce Felmly, chair of McLane’s client service committee says, “John excels at truly taking the client’s legal problem and making it his own. He works very hard to keep the client and all members of the legal service team informed and strives to provide communications on important issues and projects at all hours of the day or night. The pace of much of the work that John does is very fast and he organizes it, explains it to the client and performs to achieve the result the client deserves. He brings that commitment to everything he does and energizes all those team members with whom he works. John’s dedication is very much in the spirit of our former colleague, John Graf, for whom the award is named.”
