About me

I just celebrated my 23rd year of practicing law, and still enjoy it as much now as I did in 1992.  Going to Maine Maritime Academy and working for the Navy as a civilian engineer seems like it was just yesterday.  I am looking forward to another 15+ years of practice as a criminal defense lawyer and hope to expand my OUI practice into the area of science and drugs.  Thanks to all my clients over the years that continue to support me.  Visit us at WEBB LAW FIRM, 16 Middle Street in Saco, Maine and at   207-283-6400

  • Christine Anne Koehler

    From Georgia I have called John with DUI/OUI questions. He's not only an amazing lawyer, he's a fantastic person. It is ridiculous how much I look forward to spending time with John at DUI/OUI and criminal defense seminars around the country. It's tempting to get in trouble in Maine- just to see him work.

    I hired John several years ago to handle a local matter in Maine. He had it resolved with no fuss. I won't hesitate to refer him to my clients.
