John N. Harp, Associate
Attorney John N. Harp believes that in order for an attorney to be successful he must first understand the challenges faced by his client.
"As an attorney, I find that I have been given a unique opportunity to serve as a voice for my client. It is an honor that I take to heart. Many clients have been injured physically, mentally and emotionally and my goal is to walk alongside them, rectify a wrong and fight for the best possible outcome.”
Prior to being admitted to the bar, John worked in the insurance industry for twelve years as a multi-jurisdictional, workers' compensation claims adjuster. John now uses his experience in the insurance industry to get his clients the benefits they are entitled to under the law. His in-depth understanding of the workers' compensation insurance process is invaluable in obtaining the maximum settlement for his client.
John’s first experience in the courtroom was watching his father work as a prosecutor. “I learned a lot by observing my father’s career as a lawyer,” he explains, “but the best piece of advice he ever gave me was to ‘always be prepared to take a case to trial and go to the mat for your client. An attorney who is afraid to try a case has already lost.’”
Originally from Portland Oregon, John moved to the Chicago area in 1997. He graduated from DePaul University in 1999 and The John Marshall Law School in 2012. While at John Marshall, John was a founding member of the school's Disability Law Organization and held a leadership position in the organization until graduation. He is a proud member of the Fox Valley Community and is a member of The Kane County Bar Association, The Illinois State Bar Association and The Chicago Bar Association.
