About me

Born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley, I graduated from California State University of Fresno and the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. After law school, I returned home to practice law and began my career at the Fresno County Public Defender’s Office in order to gain valuable trial experience. When I left the Public Defender’s Office and decided to open my own practice, I was on the “Major Crimes Team” which consisted of attorneys that handled the most difficult criminal cases like homicides, Three Strikes cases, cases with high prison exposures, cases involving complex legal issues, cases with a voluminous amount of discovery and cases receiving media attention.

I am recognized by the California State Bar as a Certified Legal Specialist in the area of Criminal Law,

    John is an excellent attorney. I routinely consult John when I have complicated issues I need to work through. His people skills are unparalleled. I know no one who is better at convincing a judge to agree to his clients point of view.
