Hi, I’m John.
I offer insight and perspective to illuminate ways through the conflicts that infect our world and make life so much less than we want it to be.
It’s a labor of love I’ve been on since the beginning, though often it didn’t appear that way when I was immersed in the arena of legalized conflicts known as the law.
While my efforts there were always to help people bring peace to their lives and affairs, God called me to stop trying to solve their problems and empower them to address their causes.
Imagine that. A lawyer who tries to stop the fighting, not profit from it.
So I’m retired from the outer wars, and offer insight and perspective to end your own.
But for those who care about my past, here’s a glimpse into how I got where I am today.
I started practicing law in 1977 in Ohio, and later Florida. It was a varied practice that some would call general, but it was really more a matter of several areas of specialization. They included negligence and wrongful death; estate planning and probate; corporate and business law; real estate, leasing, construction and development; and various areas of civil litigation.
Over the course of time, I sat on boards (business, charitable and education), raised money, coached little league and did all the little things an active community member did.
I also consulted, too, since 1996, on a whole host of matters, including startups, technology, project development and other issues.
I would be remiss not to tell you that way back when I wrote a book about the spiritual path and the inner voice. It’s called, Whispers in the Silence — Living by the Light of Your Soul. It’s not available on Amazon or bookstores any more, but you can find it in my resource link above. After all, I’d been a student of the eastern arts for most of my life, and that was the culmination of a path I started in the martial arts even before the law took hold. It and my other spiritual work was an avocation of love that continues to this day.
A series of severe illnesses nearly took me out. The worst of which included several months in the hospital in 2013 with pancreatic sepsis during which I nearly died, with a long period of recovery followed by many surgeries over several years. That put an end to my practice of law.
After my health crashed, I retired from the bar, though several years later I re-applied just to keep open the option if the need arose in the future.
Now I focus on giving back all that I have received. It is a labor of love and light, guided by the whispers within.
If you find any of what I offer of value, perhaps you will consider donating to support my efforts. Consultations are also available for those who want more.
God bless you indeed.
