Biography

John established the firm’s New York City office in 2016. John represents individuals, small businesses, and public entities harmed by environmental contamination and consumer fraud. John is dedicated to helping individuals and public clients stand up to companies responsible for drinking water contamination, toxic chemical exposure, hazardous waste releases, and unfair or misleading business practices.


John’s practice currently focuses on public clients who have alleged significant contamination of their natural resources by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS”), aqueous film forming foam (“AFFF”), the gasoline additive methyl tertiary butyl ether (“MTBE”), and other hazardous substances. John also represents individuals in complex environmental, products liability, and consumer protection litigation.


John graduated from Columbia Law School, where he was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, the co­president of the Environmental Law Society, an editor of the Columbia Journal of Environmental Law, and a member of the Environmental Law Clinic. After graduating from law school, John began his legal career at Boies Schiller Flexner in New York City, where he litigated complex business disputes and represented clients subject to government investigations in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
