I have been a resident of Pinellas County FLorida since 1997. In addition to practicing law full time I also teach at St. Petersburg College. I enjoy playing tennis, running, and golf. I have been married since 1996. I also spend my spare time doing pro bono legal work.

John is certainly a force to be reckoned with. I enjoyed working with John as opposing counsel on a hotly contested case. John is a hardworking attorney who I personally believe does not sleep because he is always working for his clients. I would highly recommend John for both a family law matter and a personal injury matter to his firm. Above all else, he's a good guy to know.

John Smitten works harder than most any lawyer I know! He spends countless night and weekend hours preparing for trials and medications. He would be a fantastic choice for any family law client...you won't find a more prepared or dedicated family law attorney around!
