John has practiced law in Maine since 1980. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Connecticut in 1975 and graduated from its law school in 1979. Early in his career, he developed a strong interest in working with Maine families. John has represented hundreds of individuals during separation and divorce, and he continues to make this the focus of his practice.

His involvement in this area includes mediation, alternative dispute resolution, negotiation and, when necessary, litigation in all family matters, including divorce, rights of unmarried parents, visitation, child support, and protective proceedings.

In addition to family law, John practices in the areas of landlord/tenant relations and the law of wills and estates. For the past 30 years, John has lived with his family in South Portland, Maine. He is an active member of his church and has served with various school and civic organizations.
