Long before law school, you could find John Sears in every school play, debate event, and speech activity offered.
After starting biochemistry studies, Johnathan Sears ultimately turned his focus to understanding society and the people in it. He completed a sociology degree and then attended Drake University Law School, where he participated in the Student Trial Advocacy Competition through the American Association for Justice (“AAJ.”) During law school, he completed an internship for the Polk County Prosecutor’s office.
John participated in Drake University Law School’s Criminal Defense Clinic and Advanced Criminal Defense Clinic in 2016-2017. He graduated in 2017 with a certificate in Prosecution and Defense. By the time he graduated law school, John Sears had argued in front of the Iowa Supreme Court, written a suppression motion that achieved a case dismissal, and gotten a felony case dismissed.
Having devoted over a decade to developing his understanding of human behavior, John looks forward to presenting trial defenses calculated to resonate with juries.
