Attorney John Sofis Scheft has been associated with Bellotti Law Group, P.C. for many years and has been an invaluable asset to the firm. Attorney Scheft began his legal career in 1986 and served with Attorney Peter Bellotti as a prosecutor in Middlesex County in the late 1980s. While a prosecutor, Attorney Scheft skillfully tried and won numerous cases and was quickly recognized by his peers, judges, and his clients as a top-notch litigator.

Attorney Scheft is the president of Law Enforcement Dimensions, which provides exceptional legal and human relations training to police officers, supervisors, commanders, and law enforcement personnel in Massachusetts. In addition to law enforcement training, Attorney Scheft frequently puts his impressive legal background to work, sharing his experience and knowledge through tailored legal training programs, which have received great praise throughout the Massachusetts legal community. Numerous agencies in the state have trusted Attorney Scheft to provide the most comprehensive and effective training, including the DEA, Massachusetts State Police, and Boston Police. When the most thorough, effective, and relevant legal training is required, Attorney Scheft is the first attorney that comes to mind.

Recently, Attorney Scheft won a historic appeal for new language on a Massachusetts medical marijuana ballot question, "Question 3." Due to Attorney Scheft's keen lawyering, for the first time in the long and storied history of law in Massachusetts, a Supreme Judicial Court Justice ordered the Attorney General to revamp a "misleading" statement on a ballot question and voter's guide, which was prepared by the Secretary of State for the Fall 2012 election. The unprecedented victory showcased Attorney's Scheft's exceptional determination, knowledge, and skill in the face of decades of legal precedent. Attorney Scheft forged ahead and vowed to not rest until justice was served.
