Deciding to begin a family, John relocated from Dallas to Denton and began working at the Denton County District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney.  Over almost eight years as a prosecutor, John handled cases ranging from juvenile matters to major drug and financial crimes to serious crimes of violence.

In 2012, John left the District Attorney’s Office and opened his own private practice. His law firm focused on providing quality legal services to the citizens of Denton County that needed legal assistance in the areas of criminal defense, juvenile law and estate planning.  In 2021, John merged his firm with Loveless & Loveless, Attorneys at Law, L.P., one of the more prestigious names in family law in Denton County.  At present, John continues his practice and acts as managing partner of Loveless & Loveless, Attorneys at Law, L.P.

During his time as an attorney in Denton County, John served as a director for the Denton County Young Lawyer’s Association, the Denton County Bar Association and the Denton County Criminal Defense Lawyers’ Association.  During his time with the young lawyers, John assisted heavily in a partnership between that group and TWU that supported the “Kinship Fair”, raising funds and supplies for families taking on kinship foster/adoption placements in the community.  John also served several years as the head of the Denton County Bar Association’s Fee Dispute Resolution Committee.  John has written and published a number of legal articles and has been called upon to speak on a wide range of topics from expert witness testimony to law firm administration and paralegal support to juvenile matters.

When not practicing law, John enjoys fishing, college baseball and spending time with his wife, Darcy, and their two teenagers.
