About me

My wife and I launched our law firm in the summer of 2002 because we believed that we could provide superior, cost effective legal services to our clients, yet enjoy life outside of the office.  Our success is attributable is playing to our strengths and recognizing our limitations.  If a potential client is not a good fit based upon our approach, philosophy and resources, we help the individual or the company find a better fit.  By being selective in our cases and our clients, we have generally done a great job improving our clients' situation and creating some long term relationships. 

When I am not at the office, I can be found coaching various sport teams in my home town of North Reading, and on rare, special occasions on the golf course or my jet ski.

  • Rebecca Pontikes

    When I met John, I was first impressed by his ability to quickly assess a situation, focus with laser like precision on the issue, and come up with a solution quickly. He takes both the client's circumstances and financial considerations into account in providing the most aggressive and cost effective representation possible. He is a pleasure to work with.
