After focusing the majority of his earlier years as a lawyer in criminal law, John incorporated Family, Civil and Personal Injury. Family law became a passion of his when his ex-tried to steal his child. Instead of hiring a lawyer, he used his prior experience and to represent himself. Knowing the pain associated with someone taking your child for no reason, John had no other choice to incorporate that area of law into his practice to protect other parents. John is a “Father Friendly Family Lawyer”. He does not just have sympathy, but empathy because he has lived the lives of his clients.
John also included Civil and Personal Injury. He takes the same passion in seeking freedom and family as he does in vindicating civil wrongs and getting people the fair value for personal injuries caused by others negligent or intentional acts.
John also prides himself in providing personal attention to each client. When you call his office, you do not get a secretary, you get him. Texting is also a great option and he makes it a point to always try to speak to anyone in need the same day.
