With many years of experience as a qualified and practising solicitor, John operates as a sole practioner.  His firm has two offices, one in Sydney's inner-west at Five Dock servicing metropolitan clients and the other at Morisset servicing clients from the Hunter and Central Coast regions.  He is assisted by experienced, reliable and extremely 'client-friendly' paralegals and support staff.
