The John Marshall Law School, J.D., 2010, magna cum laude
University of Iowa, B.A., 2004, with honors
In John’s first appellate argument he sat across the aisle from five well-seasoned attorneys and obtained a full reversal of the trial court’s order. Nothing gives him more gratification than helping people navigate the legal system and resolving their issues.
John brings an interesting perspective to his clients’ cases. For the first five years of his career, he represented the plaintiff side of class action cases. Seeing the view from the other side gives him an advantage other defense attorneys lack.
As a member of the Class Action Practice Group, John has extensive experience litigating privacy and consumer protection claims, including claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and various state consumer fraud and privacy statutes. He also has significant experience litigating claims involving the use of emerging technology, such as mobile applications and cloud-based services. John also regularly counsels clients on marketing and advertising practices to ensure compliance with state and federal law. He represents companies in a variety of industries and service sectors including sales and marketing, wireless/mobile technology, the Internet, healthcare, insurance, and telecommunications.
As a member of the Data Privacy, Security & Litigation Group, John advises companies on best practices for protecting their customers’ and employees’ personal information and for responding to a suspected data breach.
John is also on the Young Professionals Board of Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO), a nonprofit that offers free legal services to people of limited means using the latest technology.
