About me

I am an attorney that gives my clients excellent representation, good communication, and dignity during their case.  People hire attorneys because they are not comfortable dealing in the law.  I see my job as your attorney to help you navigate in the murky jungle so that you can make the best decision possible.


Being an attorney is not my first career.  I spent several years as a scientist prior to law school.  I already have a maturity about me that people recognize and trust.  You get the best of both worlds - the eagerness of a new attorney with the maturity of a seasoned veteran.  I would very much enjoy hearing about your case.  John Stryker, Esq.

  • Neil Patrick McGowan

    I have had the opportunity to consult on cases for John, and I can verify that he is an intelligent, dedicated, and creative attorney. He has an ability to find the heart of the matter and address it head on. John truly tries to, and does, find the best solution for his clients. Having discussed and witnessed several of his defense strategies, I recommend John as an attorney.

  • Neil Scott Rubin

    I endorse this lawyer. John has a great knack for getting to the salient issues and using a common-sense but scholarly approach to solving his client's problems. I would not hesitate to refer clients to him for any matter in which he feels comfortable but especially family law cases.
