Attorney Spotlight: John Stemmler

January 10, 2017

John Stemmler 1. Tell us about your practice. 

My law practice has been focused on representing entrepreneurs and their companies and investments. The goal of assisting and supporting clients in the growth and successes of their businesses and invested assets has been an exciting adventure for me in 45 years of practicing law. Being able to create solutions and effect business plans for clients has been a very satisfying vocation. I have focused in the core practice areas of commercial real estate and business acquisitions and dispositions over a broad range of industry sectors, including hospitality, multifamily, office, mixed-use commercial developments, grocery, manufacturing and retail.

2. Why did you choose to pursue a career in the legal field? 

I valued relationships and wanted to obtain the analytical skills developed through a law curriculum to help businesses and business owners create long term value. I wanted to have the potential, at least, to be a value-added partner to clients and their businesses. 

3. As a successful and respected attorney with a career spanning more than 40 years, what is some advice you would give to a new attorney? 

  • Always approach your client's problems, transactions and requests for advice as personal to you. 
  • Treat the client's business or assets as your own and utilize the same analysis, persistence and passion that you would use if the business or assets were your own. 
  • Examine all possible results, analyze all potential problems with your advice and recognize that the implementation of your advice may impact your client, its business and employees for years to come.
