About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Before becoming a lawyer, like my father and grandfather, I needed to go out on my own to see what I could do.  I quit my first college campus (WVU) in 1971 and started working a variety of jobs.  About 1975 I joined a carpenter's union, in Oklahoma City, and remained on a framing job I'd already taken.  I did that kind of work for about 7 years, then took an 11 month course in Industrial Maintenance, a fancy name for machine tools or machines that cut, turn, saw, drill and tap metal plates or bars.  After a few years of that work, factory, "machining" work - I got back into college to increase my financial prospects.


I began taking evening classes at Franklin Pierce College (now a University) in 1985, and finished in 1987, with a BS in Business.  I was accepted into law school the next year and started the evening program at New England School of Law in Boston.  I relocated to Atlanta in 1991 and, eventually, began courses at John Marshall Law School, graduating in 1997, passing the bar in 1998.

Excellent service
When I contacted Mr. Snyder back round April of this year for my lower back injury received at work. He showed genuine concern and was supportive the whole entire way. Mr.Snyder was just as pissed as I was regarding the way I was being handled by my employment company. Regardless of how many clients or caseloads he had, he never once not return my calls, always kept me updated, and fought hard for me to get the money that I knew I was entitle to, but didn't think I would get. I hope I never need go through anything like I did, But if I do I Wii surely be call him again. I refere everyone I know to him in the future. Thank you Mr. Snyder I couldn't have done it without you.

a great attorney
i was very pleased with Johns work and the outcome of my case. Whenever I called John he either answered or called back right away. I never had a question he couldn't answer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing an attorney. ..Cathy
