While in law school, John held internships with the largest insurance company in the United States. After working for the insurance companies, John knew he wanted to help injured people. John was hired at a law firm in downtown Saint Paul upon finishing law school. After successfully transforming that law firm, John wanted to do it for himself.  He started his own law firm in 2012, growing it into a thriving practice. John has dedicated his career to ensuring that injured people get the representation and compensation they deserve. His goal is to ensure that his clients are listened to, are well-informed, and understand the process.

In his free time, John enjoys traveling with his wife, Hanna, and their sons, Henry and Sam, and hanging out with their two dogs (a German Shepard, Lucy and Goldendoodle, Zoey). You will typically see them on the lake during the summer months and at Minnesota sporting events throughout the year.
