also known as John K. Wright
After graduating from law school, I went on active duty as a Judge Advocate General (JAG) with the United States Air Force. As a JAG, I litigated criminal cases, examined medical malpractice claims, investigated aircraft incidents, and provided legal assistance to thousands of service members and their families, and performed a vast array of other duties throughout Asia and Europe.
I went on active duty to fulfill my lifelong dream to serve my country and be a part of a team that embodies the values similar to those I instill in my everyday life: integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all I do. They are the values and qualities that go to the core of a person’s character and make a surmountable difference in the success one may achieve inside and outside the courtroom.
When transitioning from active duty to civilian life, I found a team at Cellino & Barnes that embodies similar values and qualities: strong, solid, and successful. Cellino & Barnes shares my philosophy that each case must be handled as if it were going to trial and the protection of the client’s best interest should never be compromised.
It is no secret that insurance companies value cases and make decisions based on their quarterly financial statements, and not on the needs of those injured or killed through the negligence of others. Unfortunately many law firms handle cases similarly by looking for the quick settlement and easy profits, leaving their clients wondering who’s on their side.
I understand the significant impact that injuries may have brought to your life, and I will zealously advocate your case to obtain the maximum recovery for your injuries and the damages you have suffered. As your attorney, I promise that you will always have comfort in knowing that I am always on your side.
