If you’re looking for a guy who lives life to the fullest, loves the outdoors, and enjoys a wide array of activities, then you’re looking for Attorney John M. English. If you’re looking for a great attorney with decades of experience and a deep respect for the legal system, well, you’re still looking for John English. And lucky for you, we know exactly where to find him! in fact you need look no farther than The Kronzek Firm.
John was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula on the shores of Lake Superior. However, it wasn’t until later in life, living in Eugene, Oregon, that John developed an interest in the law. He watched countless criminal cases as they moved through the circuit courts of Eugene, and decided he’d found his calling in life. After being accepted into the University of New Hampshire School of Law, he resettled in Concord, New Hampshire. There he ended up hanging up his shingle after graduation, and practiced law as a criminal defense attorney for years before moving back to Michigan and ultimately joining The Kronzek Team.
In 1995, the O.J. Simpson trial made national news, changing the way trials were covered by the media, and influencing a huge number of people who were astounded by how quickly a nation could assign guilt to someone who hasn’t even been tried yet. John English was one of those people.
He was fascinated by how devoted O.J.’s attorneys were, and appalled by how readily everyone labelled him a murderer without waiting for the verdict. The O.J. trial affected John deeply, causing him to reevaluate how defendants were treated by their defense attorneys, and vowing to always show his clients the utmost respect. It’s one of the many things that makes John such a great attorney. And such a good person.
In addition to his abiding love of the law, John is a man of many other tastes. He loves all kinds of music, and when we say all kinds, that’s not an exaggeration. John is just as likely to spend an evening at a jazz concert, as he is to visit a nightclub where the DJ spins Deep House and Top 40 hits. John and his son are frequent concert goers. But music is only the tip of the iceberg. When he’s not savoring tunes, or out dancing with his wife (she’s a music lover too!), he’s out rowing in the early morning, shooting hoops with his son, riding his bicycle all over the city, and playing tennis with friends.
If all of this healthy exercise sounds like John may be something of a health nut, then you’d be right. In addition to his lean-meat-and-loads-of-veggies diet, John lists ‘exercise’ as his top favorite hobby. But what do you expect from the man who also lists ‘doing chores’ as one of his favorite pastimes? As you can imagine, his wife adores him! (Don’t worry – he does make time to read the occasional book and have dinner with friends. But only when the yard work is all done.)
John has been with The Kronzek Firm for years, and we couldn’t be happier! In addition to being a kind and considerate human being, John is a fantastic attorney. In fact, he just happens to be one of the few Michigan attorneys to have successfully defended an “internet sting” criminal case by obtaining a mistrial- not once, but twice! As we said, he’s very good at what he does. Which is why we’re so glad to have him on the team.
