John J. Boulton, Esq. is an Associate Attorney with Fazzio Law Offices in our Hoboken, New Jersey Office. John is a litigator who is always up for a challenge and thrives on difficult and hard-fought cases.
Before joining Fazzio Law Offices, John worked at a large Philadelphia-based law firm (Phelan Hallinan) which focused on financial services, where he litigated contested cases involving foreclosure, real estate, landlord/tenant and bankruptcy.
Prior to starting his career in private practice, John served as a criminal law clerk to the Honorable Linda L. Lawhun, Presiding Judge. As a law clerk, John wrote bench memorandum, briefed the Judge on legal issues, and handled dozens of mediations in the Special Civil Part and Landlord/Tenant Court. He also observed live criminal trials and watched the drama of contested cases unfold in real time, deepening his knowledge of the trial process. John’s criminal experience also includes participating in his law school’s Criminal Defense Clinic in Wilmington, DE, where he defended the accused. John interned at the New Jersey Public Defender’s Office in New Brunswick where he honed his legal writing skills. Through this criminal defense experience, John gained a passion for defending the rights of the accused and seeking justice for those who are wrongly accused or who find themselves in jeopardy of becoming just another number on the assembly line that is “the criminal justice system.” “The system” sometimes fails and defendants need a defense attorney like John who will take a stand to turn the long odds any criminal defendant faces back in their favor.
At Fazzio Law Offices, we believe a lawyer should leave no stone unturned and should aggressively advocate the client’s position. At the same time, it is important to balance this aggressive advocacy with diplomacy and aplomb. John is persuasive in and out of the courtroom and is a born litigator.
John graduated Cum Laude from Widener University Delaware Law School, where he competed on the Moot Court Mock Trial Team. Through this experience, John gained valuable experience early in his legal career preparing a case for trial and marshalling and organizing evidence pertaining to the testimony of different witnesses. John tested his mettle against other budding young litigators and discovered a passion for trial work.
John is a competitive individual who was formerly an accomplished wrestler. He also has engaged in community service activities throughout his life and even served as an Eagle Scout Counselor in Training some years back, which provided an opportunity to teach scouting skills and character to a large number of students and to “guide them” through the challenge of earning various merit badges. These same skills carry over well and apply equally to guiding individuals through the legal process.
At Fazzio Law Offices, John helps our clients with litigation and other legal problems. John is a fierce advocate who uses his passion for people and his passion for the law to make a difference in the lives of our clients.
John is a licensed attorney in the State of New Jersey and is pursuing New York licensure.
