John practices in the areas of personal injury and property loss defense, workers' compensation, trucking litigation, toxic tort litigation, and governmental law. John has defended clients in civil matters through trial and at mediations in Central Illinois and has defended clients and employers in workers' compensation cases at the arbitration level and in appeals before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission and Illinois circuit courts.

John began his legal career with Heyl Royster after a year in private practice in Columbus, Ohio, where he concentrated on personal injury and medical malpractice. Prior to becoming an attorney, John was a Liability Specialist with Country Companies Insurance (now, Country Insurance & Financial Services) for more than 20 years. In that capacity, John handled personal injury claims of all types, making daily decisions on coverage issues, liability and comparative fault, and settlement value, negotiating directly with claimants and attorneys to resolve these claims. John continues to effectively use the knowledge, experience and negotiating skills he gained in his claims and legal careers in the defense of clients. John received his J.D., cum laude, from Capital University Law School and his B.S. in Chemistry from Western Illinois University.
