“Both [our Chief Operating Officer] and I are quite impressed with your handling of this matter and the easy working relationship we have with you. [Our company] has an ever-growing Dallas office and, should any matter arise requiring local counsel…your name is at the top of our virtual Rolodex.”

Six years ago our daughter Sofia was born, and I opened my law firm. Both events were positively and unmistakably transformative. It’s with great pride that I’ve watched them both grow.
Inspired by our fifth anniversary, last year we aspired to increasing our rendition of free legal services to those who meet federal poverty guidelines. On behalf of one such client, we tried a property damage/constructive eviction case to jury verdict this year. Results vary case by case, but our firm (and our client) were happy with the outcome in this particular case. I’m happy to report that we met our goal of increased pro bono work and strive to do even more this upcoming year.
We have some other exciting changes planned for the year ahead, too.
I believe that those who are called to work in the law are called to serve a purpose higher than themselves. On behalf of all Americans, we are charged with the vital responsibility of pursuing “liberty and justice for all.” I personally believe this duty will be more successfully discharged through, and in conjunction with, the exercise of other virtues, such as prudence, courage, fortitude, and temperance. These are ideals to which I aim, the cornerstones of my law practice, and some the values I try to instill in our children.
“I just read your motion in it’s entirety. WOW! You are indeed a very talented writer and lawyer! I am thoroughly impressed. I pray that the judge, and ultimately the jury see you for the man of integrity you are and see the facts of this case in all of their truth! Thank you so much for taking this case so seriously. I appreciate you so much John.”

“I am the managing partner of four separate businesses and John Roper has represented each of them, and me personally, over our more than 20 year relationship. He has always been professional, courteous, [and] helpful…. He even goes out of his way to be sure I am comfortable, which sometimes entails actually taking me to the court room and back. His fees have always been fair and reasonable. I continue to use him and am thankful to have him available when needed. I recommend him very highly. High character and outstanding attorney!”

On December 1, 2010, I opened the doors to my own law firm. I remain grateful for the relationships and past, professional experience, which served as the foundation for striking out on my own.
As with most businesses, there have been ups and downs, thrills and challenges. Overall it has been a large success. This fact is attributable to entrusting clients and colleagues who support my practice by their thoughtfulness, referring business, and helping my clients — indeed, our clients — in areas of their expertise. It’s attributable to supporting family and friends, too.
Inspired by the generosity that’s permitted my office to succeed, this year we are dedicated to increasing in volume our rendition of free legal services to those who apply to Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas and qualify under their program as low-income residents.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made these five years possible.
