John Joseph McDonald works collaboratively with other members of the Whitelaw McDonald team to deliver the best outcome for his clients, and has been practicing in personal injury and workers compensation since 2020. 

What John enjoys most in his job is conversing with clients face to face, second only to delivering wins. He knows that when both process and law are explained, the client has greater peace of mind and can be co-active in their case.

A graduate of the Newcastle Business School with honours, John continues in his study of law. He serves his community in Lions and enjoys running and the beaches of Newcastle.

John would not knock back the opportunity to be the first lawyer on Mars.
