John has always been passionate about helping others. That is one of the reasons he entered into the legal field and practices law as a worker’s compensation attorney. He has always focused his career on helping those who have been injured.
Originally from Albany, Georgia, John attended the University of Georgia where he attained his bachelor’s degree in business. He also attended and graduated from Mercer University, Walter F. George School of Law, in Macon Georgia. He began his career as an attorney in Albany, Georgia where he practiced in a family firm with his father who is also an attorney. His practice focused on representing clients in civil matters such as personal injury, medical malpractice wrongful death and criminal defense. He gained valuable experience in a broad range of issues at both the federal and state levels.
This experience helped to allow John to transfer his practice and join Palace Law where he now focuses on assisting injured workers. John understands the difficulties of the legal system and is dedicated to working hard on behalf of his clients. He enjoys working closely with his clients to help them through the difficult legal process and is strongly dedicated to protecting their rights and obtaining all benefits possible for his clients.
John enjoys spending time with his wife, who is a native of Buien, Washington. They enjoy running, skiing, hiking and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest. He is also an avid hunter and fisherman.
