John is unique in the history of Glynns Solicitors as being the only employee to have left after eight years, only to return five years later. He is still with us and we are delighted to have him, his incisive approach and his wide-ranging expertise as part of the team.

Originating from County Durham, John studied English at Bangor University, before the appeal of his family's history drew him to work initially within the Magistrates Court Service and then to attend Law School at Chester.

Continuing his tour of the country, John gained a place to complete his training in Devizes, Wiltshire, qualifying in 1998.

Moving to Bristol, he began working in personal injury, drawn by the challenge of trying to achieve the best outcome for his clients.

His first term of employment with Glynns provided John with the opportunity to develop his personal injury expertise as well as moving into the field of medical negligence. When he finally came to leave, it was to use his years of experience to set up a medical negligence team at another Bristol-based law firm.

However, in 2018, John was welcomed back to Glynns, where he continues to specialise exclusively in high-value clinical negligence claims, such as those involving sepsis and cauda equina syndrome, relishing the need for a forensic approach to the analysis of a case in order to do justice to the client's claim.

As well as his role as a Senior Solicitor, John is Glynns' Strategy and Risk Manager.

John is a passionate sports fan, an interest he shares with many of his colleagues, and he can be relied upon to know the latest scores and developments in a myriad of events at any one time.
