John is a nationally renowned insurance litigator and appellate attorney. Recognized in Legal 500 as a lawyer who is hailed by his clients and peers as the “consummate litigator” of insurance coverage disputes, John is ranked as “outstanding” among recommended attorneys. In his 34-year career, John has won precedent-setting decisions on behalf of insurance policyholders in state and federal jurisdictions across the United States, at the bankruptcy court, trial court and appellate court levels.
