Jemalie A.K. John
Nine (9) days after being admitted to practice, Jemalie A.K. John stood before the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court to represent his client at trial in a complex property dispute. Though he had no trial experience, he possessed a clear understanding of the legal principles of Land Law, Estate Administration & Conveyancing, which saw him successfully advocating on behalf of his first clients.
Six (6) months into practice, he stood before the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal to make legal submissions before the tribunal in another property dispute. Again, his submissions and articulation were nothing short of sublime. His early success at the Bar is an indication of his high level of dedication, discipline, focus and hard work. He works assiduously to become the complete advocate, a consummate professional.
While he has made appearances at all levels of the court hierarchy save the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, Mr. John understands the importance of negotiation and advocates strongly for Alternative Methods of Dispute Resolution as a Christian Attorney. He has therefore successfully negotiated with financial institutions on behalf of his clients and mediated settlements where family conflicts got contentious.
This level of competence is crucial as it gives clients the confidence they need knowing they have a legal partner with them at every step of the way.
His areas of focus are Criminal Law, Civil Litigation with emphasis in Personal Injury as well as Family Law, Probate & Conveyancing.
Mr. John is also a pro-bono volunteer of a non-profit LegalEase SVG Inc and a director of MA John & Associates. LegalEase SVG Inc is a non-profit organization focused on promoting the rule of law, access to justice and human rights and he has shown a keen interest and willingness to participate vigorously as an advocate for social justice. MA John & Associates is a Business in the State of Saint Vincent & the Grenadines involved in Property Development and Construction Services.
