DOCTOR and CA BAR APPLICANT
John holds a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University and a Juris Doctorate from Western State University, College of Law. As a doctor, he has practiced for nearly two decades in Huntington Beach, CA, helping those in need and caring for injured people and families.
"As a chiropractor for the past 20 years, I have always helped people who are injured; now I want to help them as a lawyer. I've found that because I understand the medical side of the treatment, I will be able to help the client better on the legal side."
Since finishing law school and taking the California Bar Examination, John has been assisting Jorgensen & Salberg's litigation team in helping those clients with personal injury (PI) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases.
John's extensive courtroom experience has resulted in his being a sought-after consultant to attorneys for evaluating personal injury cases and trial preparation. He has served as an expert witness in nearly 25 trials and has been deposed as a medical expert over 25 times. His court appearances were for the purpose of answering questions for the judge and jury and sharing his expert opinions about the care and treatment of the injured party. His understanding of the medical issues and ability to clearly communicate complex medical injuries lead the court to award the plaintiffs significant monetary judgments.
John is recognized within the chiropractic and medical communities as a professional with integrity, honesty, and trust; he cares deeply about the best interests of patients. He has trained fellow chiropractors -- as well as physical therapists and medical providers -- in California, Nevada, Arizona, Florida, and Michigan, on best practices relating to personal injury care and documentation. In addition, he has trained chiropractors on maximizing settlement values and improving case handling and chart preparation.
John has always recognized the need for excellence in legal representation for those who are injured and will continue to bring new medical insights and understanding of traumatic injury to serve the clients of Jorgensen & Salberg Law Group.
