John brings deep technology expertise to his work with L&A’s Electronics, Computer Technology & Software, and Medical Devices groups. His work and academic experience have exposed him to a wide range of technologies, including sensors and electronic instrumentation, advanced electronics, integrated chip fabrication and design, and embedded systems. John has prosecuted and written applications in a variety of technical areas, including:

  • Consumer Electronics
  • Cybersecurity and Secure Transactions
  • Data-Center Design and Management
  • Power-Distribution and Power-Conversion Systems Design

Prior to his career at L&A, John worked at one of Procter & Gamble’s largest manufacturing facilities, where he was responsible for leading an issue-resolution team in the field of lean manufacturing. He devised and implemented solutions for a wide range of electrical and mechanical problems, and trained line teams in a variety of areas.

While at Rensselaer, John led various teams in fields ranging from volunteer construction work to embedded-systems design innovation. One team, sponsored by Cypress Semiconductors, was challenged to improve and popularize a Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC). The group created a control system to regulate the internal conditions of a thermal chamber designed to house a 3-D printer.

John received three distinct awards upon graduating from Suffolk University Law School: the Daniel J. Fern Award for graduating with the highest cumulative average within the evening program; the Judge Harry Kalus Book Award for demonstrating excellence in the Massachusetts Practice course; and the Benjamin Kaplan Copyright Award for demonstrating excellence in the Copyright course. John also received three Jurisprudence Awards for the highest grades in Civil Procedure I, Civil Procedure II, and Business Entity Fundamentals, respectively.

John is an Adjunct Professor of Legal Writing at Suffolk University Law School where he teaches a required first year class called “Legal Writing Skills.” The course instructs students on how to analyze a set of facts to identify legal issues and research the law governing those issues; outline a legal argument objectively and persuasively; draft memoranda of law and legal briefs; and draft preventative legal documents, such as contracts. John also mentors students on how to conduct themselves in the legal profession and prepares them for oral advocacy in a court setting.
