Before hiring an attorney, you should know their background. Unlike some attorneys, who simply concentrate in one area of law, John is truly a man for all seasons. He practices in the areas of business/commercial litigation and criminal defense. From a simple criminal case to complex contract litigation, John has covered and seen it all. He brings this abundance of experience in representing you. Because of this experience, he will not waste your time or money. John has been through many trials both criminal and civil. No case is too small or too complex.
While some attorneys try to impress you with how hard they will fight for you, nothing can beat true experience. The experience of negotiating a settlement with an insurance company. The experience of handling a felony jury trial. The experience of arguing in front of an appeals court. Some attorneys have never seen the inside of a courtroom. Some law firms only handle certain stages of your case and then it is passed on to others, John will supervise and handle every stage of your case. Because we are a smaller law firm, our clients are very important to us and we can give everyone the attention they need.
You should know that John has successfully argued in front of the Hawaii Supreme Court, the Nevada Supreme Court and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He has the experience of actually changing law and making a difference. Many attorneys do not have this experience.
John was born in Paw Paw, Michigan. He later moved to Hawaii with his family when he was 17. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa and then went on to attend West Virginia University, College of Law. He clerked for the Honorable Simeon Acoba. He is licensed in both the State of Nevada and State of Hawaii and has been practicing law for over 20 years.
