Associate Attorney

John is a native of Florida, growing up in Naples. He attended Stetson University, earning his Juris Doctorate from their College of Law and MBA from their School of Business Administration. After graduating he moved back to Naples to remain close to his family.

John began his practice in civil litigation where he was exposed to wide variety of cases in matters of probate, domestic violation, construction defect, insurance, collection, employment, and landlord tenant. While he enjoyed civil litigation John desired to narrow his focus to that which he finds most important, family. Thus, he joined the team of Family First Legal Group.
