John B. Simpson


John B. Simpson, Virginia Employment Law Attorney

Practice Areas

With over thirty years of experience as a civil trial attorney, John B. Simpson has handled a number of high stakes legal matters as a Charlottesville Commercial Litigation Attorney. John’s trial practice in both state and federal courts is diverse, as he has handled cases ranging from a non-competition clause arising out of the sale of a $47M California business, to complex real estate battles. In addition to his commercial litigation practice, John also devotes a substantial portion of his practice to domestic relations litigation.

John particularly excels in representing individuals and small businesses against huge corporations whether the corporation in question is a massive bank, an enormous government contractor, or a large investment corporation.  John enjoys representing his clients in these situations even against significant law firms and has demonstrated a strong skill in getting to the true essence of a case.

John was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. After graduating seven years ahead of Barack Obama from Punahou School, John completed his undergraduate education at Colgate University and law school at the University of Hawaii School of Law. John looks to his initial employment as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii in 1981 as instrumental in developing the practice skills he utilizes as a Charlottesville Commercial Litigation Attorney.

John is licensed to practice in Virginia, New York, and Hawaii, and though his civil trial practice is headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia, John represents clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts across the Commonwealth.  John also has an active practice resolving cases in mediations and arbitrations. John is married and has three daughters.
