Hague to the position of partner. John has demonstrated a strong commitment to the firm, our values and clients since joining the firm as an associate in 2016.

He has consistently provided professional excellence and sustained commitment to our clients and the firm,” said William Matlin, a partner with the firm. “We are proud to celebrate our newest partner and look forward to his continued growth and success.”

John became interested in law when working as a trader at a small hedge fund. While performing research, he discovered an interpretation of a rule that permitted the fund to utilize more leverage. This discovery piqued his interest in the law and its interpretation.

John honed his skills representing personal injury plaintiffs. He then put those skills to work representing defendants at Hoffman Roth & Matlin. He received his J.D. from New York Law School and earned his B.A. from the City University of New York (cum laude).
