Biography

John is a graduate of the University of Montana (honors) and University of Montana School of Law (high honors).

After graduating from college, John worked as a truck driver, a fork lift operator and a teamster intern, helping him learn the value of hard work and an honest paycheck.

John began his legal practice by serving as a law clerk for Chief United States District Court Judge Richard F. Cebull. He then worked in private practice, handling both civil and criminal cases.

In 2009, John tried the case of McCollough v. Johnson, Rodenburg & Lauinger, which resulted in one of the largest jury verdicts against a debt collector ever ($311,000).

In 2014, John and his law partner Randy Bishop tried the case of King v. GEICO Insurance, which resulted in a jury verdict of $2,700,000.

In 2015, John tried the case of Norman v. Deutsche Bank, which resulted in a jury verdict of $2,050,000, one of the largest jury verdicts in a wrongful foreclosure case.

John has served as lead counsel or co-lead counsel on several successful consumer class actions, recovering over $50 million dollars on behalf of consumers in Montana and throughout the United States.

John has also written a laymen’s guide to personal injury law in Montana: Your Rights: The Ultimate Guide to Victim’s Rights in Montana.

John is an AV rated lawyer, the highest skill and ethical rating an attorney can receive. He is listed by peer-rated organizations as a “Super Lawyer” and among the best consumer protection lawyers in the country.
