John is licensed to practice law in both Missouri and Kansas and has over ten years of experience serving individuals and large corporations with their legal needs. While he has helped successfully defend large corporations against multimillion claims and even one that was over a billion dollars, he has always found and continues to find greater fulfillment helping people on an individual basis. Adoptions and guardianships are among his favorite undertakings— especially for children with special needs. John also finds satisfaction fighting for and obtaining fair judgments for people who have suffered injuries or who have sustained serious losses due to the actions of others. In addition, he takes a special interest aiding others plan for death or disability by structuring their trusts, wills, and estates. He can also guide you through the difficult times of divorce and child-custody disputes, help you navigate immigration laws, and fend off that pesky traffic ticket.

John also enjoys giving back to the community in many ways. He has provided a wide range of pro bono services ranging from assisting victims of the 2011 Joplin tornado with landlord/tenant issues to rendering adoption and guardianship services for those in need. Due to his substantial pro bono service, he has earned a place on the Missouri Pro Bono Wall of Fame for four consecutive years.

John is an active member of his church and has volunteered in a variety of roles. His favorite role was that of Scoutmaster. For nearly four years, he was a Scoutmaster and Cub master, and helped the boys in his Scout troop earn the coveted rank of Eagle. In addition, he helped raised over $5,000 for his scouts through fundraisers, work projects, and food donations. He also led clothing and goods drive to assist children with special needs.
