'I always think in terms of how can I best help a client today to achieve their goals.'

After almost 40 years of practicing plaintiff litigation and having spent the majority of that time as a sole practitioner representing client’s interests, John knows what it takes to right wrong.

John believes it has been his tenacity and ‘never say die’ approach to pursuing his clients’ rights that has seen him achieve many positive outcomes in a wide range of complex cases for his clients over the years. For him, standing up against the government, insurers and the ‘big end of town’ for everyday people is both an honour and motivator.

John joined the Shine Lawyers team in 2012 to meet the changing and growing challenges in personal injury law and uses his wealth of experience and outstanding legal service to benefit his community in Newcastle. It’s this trusted advice, guidance and advocacy for his clients that saw John be recognised in the independent Doyles Guide as a recommended Work Injury Compensation Lawyer.

As a Solicitor and Special Counsel at Shine, John is focused on changing the lives of his clients for the better, and helping them get the compensation they deserve. To find out more about John and how he can help you, get in touch with our Newcastle branch.
