About John

In 2004, John embarked on his academic journey, graduating with a degree in History from Leeds. Subsequently, he delved into the realm of law at BPP Law College, all while gaining practical experience at Ford & Warren Solicitors in Leeds. His dedication led him to qualify in 2011, specialising in the intricate field of insurance fraud litigation.

In 2014, John made a bold career shift, dedicating four years to honing his expertise in personal injury and litigation. However, 2018 marked a turning point when he embraced the world of self-employment as a consultant solicitor, and he hasn't looked back since.

Transitioning to consultancy allowed John to step away from litigation, leveraging his past experiences to guide clients in navigating a broad spectrum of commercial challenges, with the primary goal of steering clear of litigation As John wisely puts it, prevention is invariably more cost-effective than the cure!

Beyond the confines of his profession, John's passion lies in sports. He's an avid sports enthusiast, making it a point to attend a diverse array of sporting events whenever possible. He and his wife share a mutual love for globe-trotting, and wherever their adventures take them, John never passes up an opportunity to witness local sports events, if circumstances permit.
