I start the day by eating the spider. By that I mean I will do the day’s most difficult task first.
In the 2014-15 financial year, John ceased practising as a barrister and now practises as a solicitor for Coast to Coast Legal. John practises predominantly in commercial and corporate law, with a specific interest in securities and finances, and commercial litigation. John also has a wealth of experience in both criminal matters (having acted as defence counsel in the high profile prosecution against former Queensland MP Gordon Nuttall) and property settlements in family law divorces.
John is an avid negotiator in mediations and has appeared in the Family Law Court, Federal Circuit Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia, Magistrates Court, Industrial Court of Queensland, Planning and Environment Court, District Court, Supreme Court and Queensland Court of Appeal.
