About me

John graduated with honors from the University of Memphis School of Law. While in law school, he was a justice on the Moot Court Board and received the highest-grade award in jurisprudence, fair employment practices, and Administrative law. After receiving his law license, John practiced law in Memphis before returning home to Middle Tennessee.

In 2002, John began practicing in Wilson County, Tennessee. He served as Special Assistant Public Defender for approximately two years handling numerous criminal matters. Additionally, he has presided as special judge for Wilson County General Sessions and Juvenile Courts as well as presided over the Wilson County Teen Court.

    I have known John for well over a decade. He used to work for me before he went to an adjoining county for family reasons. It was clearly our loss. John is an aggressive lawyer that will advocate for his client in the most effective manner.
