John has over 30 years experience as a solicitor, having obtained an LL.B honours degree from Liverpool University in 1977. He returned to the law after a 3 year teaching career and has also lectured on ILEX courses.
John's main experience has been in claimant personal injury work but in his previous position as a partner at Thompsons solicitors he also specialised in defending white collar crime.
John has recently transferred departments to assist the complex claims team in dealing chiefly with claims against local authority clients by claimants alleging abuse or child sexual exploitation. He hopes that his previous experience of acting for many claimants will allow him to deal fairly and humanely with genuine victims whilst at the same time ensuring that the authorities are protected from false or exaggerated claims.
John believes it is important to adopt a friendly and personable approach to all clients, irrespective of the area of law in which they are concerned. However, he also provides a high level of experience and expertise which all clients can rely on.
He has garnered many testimonials over the years from clients and other legal professionals including judges.
