Summary

John is a native of Virginia Beach & Chesapeake with deep roots throughout Virginia. He is passionate about entrepreneurship and business development. He has personally launched multiple new ventures and ideas. Like many entrepreneurs, some ventures have succeeded while others have failed. A true believer in “failing forward”, John looks for new opportunities in every situation. This mentality allows John to connect with entrepreneurs and business owners in a meaningful way to help them navigate difficulties and grow their success.

Outside of his practice of law, John serves the City of Chesapeake as a Planning Commissioner and is a Board Member of Roc Solid Foundation. In his free time, he enjoys the outdoors and loves spending time with his wife, two daughter, and two yellow labs.

John graduated from Regent University School of Law in 2010, where he served as Chairman of the Moot Court Board and a member of the Student Leader Advisory Board. After law school, John found his niche practicing real estate and business law throughout Virginia and North Carolina. In real estate, John has experience representing investors, developers, builders, banks, lenders, and individual home buyers in a variety of transactions. His business practice ranges from advising entrepreneurs to assisting established business owners in mergers, acquisitions, contracts, litigation and dispute resolution.
