About Me

I love trials. I am on a streak of 5 trials where the jury returned verdicts of "Not Guilty" on all or the most serious counts in which my clients were charged. Each case is unique, but I hope to extend that streak! Being an effective trial lawyer also allows me to negotiate favorable results for my client. You should always ask a trial lawyer about his last 5 trials and whether he was lead or co-counsel . . . listen to the answer before choosing.

  • Lawrence Jason Zimmerman

    I endorse this lawyer. I got to know John well when he was a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney. He was always friendly, well-informed, and tough. I was relieved when he chose to come to the defense side because the US Attorney's Office lost a quality litigator. I have been able to try cases with him, discuss strategy on many cases, and get to really know him well. He is great lawyer who is passionate about assisting those in need of help. He will go the extra mile for anyone. I recommend him to anyone in need.

  • Jason Ramsey Schultz

    I highly recommend and endorse John Lovell. He and I have been friends for over 12 years. We have worked on several cases together including a wrongful death case that settled for over $1,000,000.00. When I have a client who has to answer to a criminal charge, I call on John. In fact, the last client that I referred to John went to trial in front of a jury. In John’s capable hands, the jury returned a verdict of “NOT GUILTY!” With results like that, I will continue to refer friends and clients to John for criminal defense!
