After high school John was highly recruited by many colleges and universities including Boston College until he ultimately decided to play for UMASS. Though his career was cut short by injuries, his accomplishments were honored by his home town by being entered into the hall of fame for both football and baseball.

John witnessed first hand many tragedies that affected his clients, friends and their families. With the mounting issues and despair, John has contributed a significant part of his time to help those with addiction issues. His efforts did not go unnoticed as he has been recently chosen to join the Herren Foundation. A group created by the former Celtic Chris Herren himself.
John's spirit of helping others can also be seen through his work. He is highly respected for being a skilled defense lawyer. He is especially well known for his experience and deep knowledge of OUI or drunk driving cases. Not only is John well know for his advocacy, but clients love him for his compassion. As one client put it best "John is the best lawyer I've ever had, he knows about the law, he fights for me, but most importantly he cares about me."
