About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Attorney John C. Chowning obtained his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in 1982 and his Juris Doctor (law degree) from Wayne State University in 1985. He started representing insurance companies for the first three years of his practice, and has represented injured workers over the next 30 years. This has allowed him to understand how insurance companies approach settlements and he has obtained millions in benefits for his clients. He is also not averse to trying cases if a settlement is not adequate, and has tried hundreds of cases.

Mr. Chowning has a special capacity to listen and understand the needs of all individuals represented by him. His knowledge of medical issues and decades of dealing with difficult types of injuries has made him very efficient in helping clients get the aid they need in Workers' Compensation, Social Security, and personal injury cases. He also handles all his clients' legal needs which includes the drafting of wills and Power of Attorney.

As a Michigan Workers' Compensation attorney, Mr. Chowning has worked on thousands of Workers' Compensation claims, handling each case personally as if it was his own.

As a friend of labor, Mr. Chowning has weekly office hours at four UAW locals. He has given lectures for various groups on the rights of injured workers. Many attorneys throughout the state of Michigan refer their Workers' Compensation cases to him because of his expertise.

SuperHero Lawyer
John Chowning is a superhero lawyer thats dedicated to fighting and protecting worker's compensation rights. John battled the crooked insurance company for me and saved the day by making sure I was treated fairly and compensated in a timely manner. I met John at the the Worker's Compensation agency and was impressed when I saw first hand that he is highly respected by other lawyers and agency officials. John Chowning went above and beyond to help me.

John Chowning is the very BEST
I highly recommend John Chowning for all of your legal matters. He keeps you constantly informed and updated on your case through verbal and written communication, and always returns your phone calls, unlike most other lawyers. He doesn't rush you and respectfully listens and explains issues in detail. He is a kind and considerate man and a pleasure to work with, and a great lawyer. Last but not least --- John Chowning wins!!!

Warning
Do not use this atterny, he dont explain things. He looses paperwork ,forgets to do things and it delays case. After 10 months he didnt turn in my case for court date. I had to call and see why. It's been 17 months and my case is just getting going. I switched to another atterny . PATHETIC It was his negligence forget to turn in my case . It would be settled by now or real close.
