John M. Dickey


John’s practice focuses on litigation. He advises on issues concerning business and commercial litigation, insurance litigation, construction litigation as well as personal injury litigation.

John joined the Firm in 2010 and became a shareholder in 2012. He received his B.S. from Youngstown State University and J.D. from Ohio Northern University College of Law. John has tried over 100 cases in Texas and New Mexico. John is a proud father of two sets of twins.


John began his legal career with Stading & Associates, where he gained experience across many areas of law. That broad experience has allowed him to better relate to current litigation clients whose needs fall in those areas. After Stading & Associates, he was a partner at Poulos & Dickey for six years before starting his own practice where he focused on insurance defense litigation. After eight years of running his own firm, John joined Gordon Davis Johnson & Shane P.C.

John believes the Firm atmosphere allows for a more personal touch with each client, building a sense of trust.
