John is a proud first-generation American citizen, as his father and grandparents all emigrated from Italy to pursue the American Dream. John helped fulfill that dream by becoming the first member of his family to graduate from college. He graduated magna cum laude from Boston College. While there, he was in the School of Management Honors Program and served as class president. He was the editor of The School of Management Review, a monthly journal, and received the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Service.
John’s interest in becoming a lawyer dates back to the television show, Perry Mason, where he saw how a skilled and zealous attorney could bring about truth and justice in the courtroom. He attended Boston College School of Law, where he fought for the rights of the injured for the Greater Boston Legal Services Children’s Rights Project and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston. Immediately after graduating law school he clerked for the Judges and Appellate Session for the Superior Court.
