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. John’s success derives from what Legal 500 refers to as his unique ability “to marry his mastery of the law with the facts, circumstances and business concepts."
