Biography

Since first stepping in front of a jury, John felt a calling to fight for justice in the courtroom. Often times, the courtroom represents the last resort to resolve a grievous situation. John has dedicated his career to helping folks navigate the precarious litigation process and bring justice on behalf of victims. He is a firm believer that every person deserves the best legal advocate in the courtroom – and relying on hard work, trusted experience, and trial acumen will help achieve the justice his clients seek.

John has extensive experience in civil and criminal litigation. Prior to starting the JK Law Firm, LLC, John served as claims counsel for a Fortune 500 insurance company, where he successfully defended all facets of personal injury and tort litigation brought against his clients. He previously worked for a boutique law firm in Atlanta focusing on the defense of general, complex, motor vehicle, and trucking liability cases.

Prior to transitioning to civil litigation, John served as an Assistant District Attorney in Spalding and Fulton Counties and successfully prosecuted numerous felony cases through trial. Following law school, he gained insight into the judicial process by clerking for Floyd County Superior Court Judges. John’s passion for the courtroom dates back to law school, where he was a participant of the Prosecutorial Justice Program under the Third-Year Practice Act. During law school, he served as President of the Asian Law Students Association and the Education Law Students Association.

John is a Northern Virginia (NoVA) transplant who migrated south for law school and has called Georgia home ever since. He received a B.A. in Political Science from Virginia Tech and received his J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law.

John lives in Gwinnett County and enjoys playing golf, tinkering with his Triumph motorcycle, and is an avid Hokies and Bulldogs fan.

Legal Answers
Q. Is there a statchue of limitations in GA for crossing guard lines
A: In general, the statute of limitations for prosecution of any felonies (except for murder, felonies punishable by death or life imprisonment, and certain felonies involving use of DNA evidence) is four years. Crossing guard lines pursuant to O.C.G.A. 42-5-15 would fall under this category. Best of luck.
Q. My son was choked in the hospital by staff, what can I do?
A: In addition to reporting the incident to law enforcement, you may want to speak with a personal injury attorney to evaluate the viability of your son's tort claim (if there were damages/bodily injury).
Q. Can I carry my gun with no permit
A: The guidelines for carrying and possessing firearms in Georgia is outlined in O.C.G.A. 16-11-126. Unless you fall under one of the excepted persons (i.e., judge, law enforcement, etc.) or under one of the excepted circumstances (i.e., legal hunting with a valid hunting license, unloaded handgun in an enclosed case, etc.), carrying a weapon without a valid weapons carry license is a misdemeanor. A second arrest within five years and [subsequent] conviction is elevated to a felony, punishable from two to five years. I hope this information helps.
