John became an attorney rather late in life. He was a soldier as a young man and has worked in a number of different fields. John has been an automotive and equipment mechanic, he has driven trucks and taught commercial driving, worked in construction, and taught English in Eastern Europe. He has worked mostly in the aviation industry, as an air traffic control specialist, a supervisor and an operations manager for a major aviation company.
He has a varied background that helps him to understand his clients needs. He has worked in various industries and his vast experience helps him understand many of the issues that are faced by businesses large and small.
John earned a certificate in Oil and Gas Law from Washburn. Oil and Gas are not large practice areas in Idaho, but earning the certificate meant studying real estate law, contracts, and water law issues. All of those things are important in a state with so much agriculture.
John lives with his family in Pocatello. They enjoy outdoor activities and family game nights. There are a few musical instruments in the house, but they keep it down so as not to disturb the neighbors. He still enjoys tinkering with automobiles, especially the old ones. He is generally working on something or looking for a new project for himself and his children. His wife is not overly interested in mechanical things, but she tolerates their hobby with a smile.
