John has been successfully representing injured people since 1983. He understands that good communication with his client is the key to understanding his client's goals, and intense preparation is essential to obtaining the best possible outcome for his client. He is consistently recognized by his peers in multiple legal publications, including Minnesota Monthly's Best Lawyers (annually since 2019) and US News and World Report's Best Lawyers (annually since 2016).

John also combines his passion for the law with a commitment to public service. He served on the Orono School Board from 2000-2016, and as Orono School Board Chair from 2010-2016. During this time he was honored to serve a term as the Chair of the Association of Metropolitan School Districts, was recognized by the Minnesota Association of School Public Relations Association with the "School Board Communication Award" and was awarded the Orono School District "Leader of Character Award."

John likes to spend his non-work time with his wife Diane, particularly hiking, travel, and golf. John spent many years coaching youth football, basketball and baseball, combining his love of teaching with his love of sports.
