About Me


I started the St. John Law Group, LLC to provide experienced and compassionate legal representation to those facing criminal, DUI, juvenile, and traffic offenses. I also fight for clients in anti-harassment and protection orders and clearing of their criminal records.

My philosophy of practice is to be your most fierce advocate, and your most trusted advisor. I intentionally keep my practice small, so that you can receive a boutique law firm experience from an attorney who has represented thousands of clients.

I pride myself on achieving excellent outcomes for every client, but that outcome means nothing if you don't understand your case or the choices that you have.

At my law firm, we start with a free, hourlong consultation so that you not only understand where your case stands at that exact moment, but also how the criminal legal system operates and what will happen to you and your case over time.

Your arrest may leave you feeling that you've lost control or that your case is "happening" to you. I pride myself on ensuring client know their options and that they are active in the decisions about their case.

I look forward to meeting you, and to helping you successfully through what will soon be merely a moment in your life.

No one plans to get arrested, but you can plan who you would call!
