Law Office of John Szymankiewicz

The Law Office of John Szymankiewicz, PLLC: We focus our practice on Small Business, Debt/Credit, Bankruptcy, and the Craft Beer industry.

Firm Overview

We are a small law firm dedicated to meeting the needs of individuals and small businesses. We operate mostly as a virtual office and are available nearly 24/7.

By leveraging technology and completing as much work as we can electronically, we keep our overhead expenses low and keep our focus on you and your matter, not on paying the rent on our office space.

We all have issues that arise in our lives, both personal and professional. When something happens, you need an advocate.

At our firm, we want the solution that makes sense for your situation, not the solution that works for our pocket-book. We want to help you help yourself.

For example, there are many aspects of the law and the judicial system that you can handle on your own, we can help guide you along the way. Or, if you prefer, we can handle the entire transaction for you.

As your attorneys, we work for you, not the other way around. It's your life and your business. We're here for you.

John Szymankiewicz

John Szymankiewicz is a licensed Professional Engineer and Attorney in North Carolina. Embarking on a second career, John went to law school at night while juggling a demanding full time job, a family, and teaching at a local martial arts school.

While launching his law practice, John saw the need for trained, understanding attorneys focused on their clients needs in some key areas. Most importantly, this means developing an ongoing relationship, becoming a business partner, with clients instead of being merely a supplier of services. As such, in this law office, we strive to find the right solution for the client now and in the future. We look for opportunities to work collaboratively and keep costs down for our clients, principally individuals and small businesses.

In addition to his legal training, John brings experience from nearly 15 years of operations, processing engineering, and project management in the food and pharmaceutical industries. John has worked in quality and compliance, engineering, manufacturing, and R&D. John received his JD from North Carolina Central University and also holds an MBA and a BS in Chemical Engineering.
