About Thomas M. John

Growing up in Jamaica, Queens I knew I wanted to be an attorney from a young age. I pursued other interests and earned a Master's degree in psychology from Columbia University prior to attending law school in Miami. Throughout my 13 year professional career I have fought for those whose voice was not heard. I am skilled at navigating complex systems and negotiating matters large and small. I live close to my office with my wife and young daughter.
