John joined Rikard & Protopapas in 2023 after spending the first part of his career focusing on transactional matters for clients. He now focuses on complex insurance litigation, personal injury and various other litigation related matters.

While in law school, John served as an editor for the Federal Courts Law Review, an electronic law review dedicated to legal scholarship relating to the federal courts and edited in conjunction with the FMJA (Federal Magistrate Judges Association). He eventually served as law clerk to the Honorable W. Jeffrey Young (Ret.) and visited most of the state’s court houses via his judge’s at-large designation.

John grew up in Sumter, South Carolina but has called Columbia home since 2014. When he is not in the office, he can be found spending time with his wife, two dogs, and son.
