About Me

John Szymankiewicz is a licensed Professional Engineer and Attorney in North Carolina. Embarking on a second career, John went to law school at night while juggling a demanding full time job, a family, and teaching at a local martial arts school.


While launching his law practice, John saw the need for trained, understanding attorneys focused on their clients needs in some key areas. Most importantly, this means developing an ongoing relationship, becoming a business partner, with clients  instead of being merely a supplier of services. As such, in this law office, we strive to find the right solution for the client  now and in the future. We look for opportunities to work collaboratively and keep costs down for our clients, principally individuals and small businesses.


In addition to his legal training, John brings experience from nearly 15 years of operations, processing engineering, and project management in the food and pharmaceutical industries. John has worked in quality and compliance, engineering, manufacturing, and R&D. John received his JD from North Carolina Central University and also holds an MBA and a BS in Chemical Engineering.
