About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

My practice is focused on business reorganization, bankruptcy and litigation. Before joining Knox Law, I served as a Law Clerk in the United States Bankruptcy Court of the Western District of Pennsylvania, reviewing and researching issues related to proceedings in Chapter 7, 11 and 13 bankruptcies. I also have seven years of experience as a litigator, arguing before county courts as well as the Superior and Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Prior to attending law school, I worked as a manufacturing systems consultant, providing support in the sale and implementation of software for manufacturing companies.
