  • John's practice of law is unique in two respects: (1) John only practices in the area of personal injury and medical malpractice and he only represents the victims of such negligence. John does not represent insurance companies or defendants; and (2) John limits his practice to substantial and catastrophic injury cases.

    John is highly selective in the type of cases that he accepts and the vast majority are eithe rejected or referred to other counsel. By accepting a very small number of cases, John is able to make sure that each case gets the time and attention it deserves.

Biography

John Fisher is AV-rated with Martindale-Hubbell, selected as a Super Lawyer by Thomson-Reuters and has a perfect 10/10 rating from www.avvo.com. John is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Notre Dame Law School (and a huge fan of the Fighting Irish and Chicago Bears). John was a partner at Powers & Santola, LLP in Albany between 1996 and 2010 and for the last 17 years, John’s practice has been limited to the representation of catastrophically injured persons.

John lives in Ravena, New York with his three beautiful kids, Liliya, Tim and Alek and his lovely and talented wife (another lawyer), Lisa, and in his free time, he loves to slalom and barefoot waterski.
John is the author of the book, The Seven Deadly Mistakes of Malpractice Victims, which he offers free to injury victims everywhere. John’s website, www.protectingpatientrights.com is a treasure trove of information for victims of medical malpractice and is updated daily with new content on his blog, frequently asked questions and articles.

John publishes a monthly newsletter just for lawyers, Lawyer Alert, that is mailed on the 28th day of every month to lawyers. Lawyer Alert provides tips about law office systems, management and practice that you will not find anywhere else.

John has a podcast on iTunes, The Ultimate Practice Builder for New York Injury Lawyers, where he interviews experts on issues ranging from Medicare Set Aside Trusts, mobile websites, automated marketing and lien resolution. You can download the podcast for free on iTunes.

John’s Twitter handle is www.twitter.com/JFisherLawyer and his Facebook page is www.facebook.com/protecting.patient.rights. John posts new content on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus every day.

John has been cited as a legal expert by the New York Law Journal and he speaks frequently to bar associations and trial lawyer organizations. John’s workshop, The Jury Project, educates lawyers how to use focus groups to prepare for their next trial, and his Powerpoint speech, How to get your Law Firm’s Website on the First Page of Google, shows why lawyers fail to make money with internet marketing and what you can do today to start getting cases from your website. John provides free CLE credits for you or your organization and picks up the tab for dinner/lunch. Who else does this?

John is always more than willing to speak to any lawyer organization that would like a free CLE presentation on focus groups (The Jury Project) or internet marketing. To book a speaking engagement with John, please call 866-889-6882 to request a date.
