John qualified in the early 1960s and became a partner at Cairns Slane in 1964. As with many practitioners at that time he engaged in a wide variety of work including residential and commercial conveyancing, subdivisions, commercial work, town planning, estates, trusts, public works compensation claims, and civil litigation.

John has tended to work exclusively with some key clients with whom he has had long term relationships. The depth of business relationship is clear with most of John's clients having been with him for more than 20 years.

John retired from the partnership in the late 1980s and now consults to clients, and provides real value due to his extensive knowledge and experience.
