About Me

People don't often seek the assistance of a trial attorney when everything is going well. I understand that; I take my job and corresponding responsibilities seriously. When I'm not working, I enjoy running, swimming, bicycling, reading, learning more about the world's many cultures, and spending time with my family.

  • Brent Barnes Ivy

    John is an attorney who takes the phrase "client's best interest" to a new level. He zealously advocates for his clients while remaining professional and genuine with other attorneys. I have since moved to Houston so John is the first attorney that comes to mind when people ask me for a trusted attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
