John’s passion for justice focuses on individuals in life who have been marginalized, taken advantage of, or otherwise suffered injuries due to the negligence of others.
He tries to empathize with his clients so that he can get a better understanding of what they’ve been through and how it’s affected their lives. By doing so, he’s better able to advocate and fight for their rights.

Throughout his lengthy career, he’s been the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Washington, served as president of the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association, as a member of the Board of Trustees, as well as the Chairman of the Judicial Qualifications Committee.
He’s also a prestigious Double Eagle member with the Washington State Association for Justice. He provides strategic advice to other lawyers who are working on complex personal injury cases.

When he’s not in a courtroom or working with a client, John enjoys playing and collecting vintage guitars in his spare time. He’s also a blackbelt in Taekwondo and has competed in full contact Olympic sparring at State and National levels.
