John is passionate about helping people. This is why he chose to establish this boutique law firm that focuses on helping everyday people assert their rights. He has represented individuals, small and medium-sized businesses, public and private corporations, financial institutions, executives and professionals in a range of matters that are important to their welfare and wellbeing.

While John provides general legal advice, he specialises in guiding people through the complexities of three areas of law – family law, personal injury law and insurance law.

  • When it comes to Family Law, John takes a holistic approach to solving disputes. He understands how stressful and emotional property and parenting disputes can be for everyone involved, so he focuses on helping his clients achieve the best possible settlement so that everyone in the family can make a new and positive start to life.
  • Personal injury and compensation issues often involve people who have experienced significant physical and emotional pain and trauma. With this in mind, John handles each case with sensitivity and care. He leverages his extensive knowledge and experience in personal injury and compensation law to make sure his clients receive accurate advice and get the best outcome possible. Over the years, John and his team have recovered compensation worth millions of dollars for clients in insurance and negligence claims.
  • Before establishing John and Co Lawyers, John worked for one of the largest banks in Australia and for a leading international insurer. It was here that he gained invaluable insights into how large insurers and financial service organisations operate. He now brings this knowledge to his clients when handling their complex insurance issues.

With over 15 years experience, John has worked with clients of every size. John began his career as a lawyer working in a medium sized law firm in Sydney’s CBD that specialised in helping people who needed to make a claim for compensation, bring a case to court or deal with a family matter. These people had often been injured or experienced very challenging times. John gave them advice and represented them in personal injury, family law and insurance law cases. He has also worked for one of the largest banks in Australia and a leading insurance company. This gave him the opportunity to hone his expertise in insurance law and understand how the other side operates.

John decided to establish John and Co Lawyers because he wanted to support and help people when they needed it most.

When he’s not working, John likes to make the most of his time with his wife and three young and active children. He also enjoys reading, bike riding, fishing and keeping fit.

“I would just like to thank you for your hard work and understanding during a very stressful time for myself.I cannot thank you enough for the work and advice you provided. My assault and stalking and intimidation charges were heard by the Magistrate at Liverpool Court yesterday, Tuesday 16th. I pleaded guilty to the assault with the stalking being dropped prior by way of representations made by you. The Magistrate seen through the bullshit supplied by the Police facts sheet and I am happy to say no conviction was recorded. He stated it was “a molehill turned into a mountain by police”. John I would just like to say your professionalism on both of my criminal and family law matters was outstanding. I would go so far as to say its the best service I have ever had. Keep up the good work!!!”
