John McArdle is a retired adversarial lawyer living in the North East of England. Starting his first law firm with his business partner at the age of 25, he has spent his professional life fighting for justice for his clients against big businesses in a system that favoured the well off. He chose not to act for big institutions because going home at night thinking that he had preserved a large sum for a big insurance client at the expense of a pensioner did not make him feel good. Winning a large sum for the pensioner is much more his style and it was upon this ethos that he built his businesses.
John is a life-long supporter of Sunderland Football Club and a supporter of the children’s organisation UNICEF. He is now happily retired, enjoys a game of golf, and lives near Darlington with his wife Gillian.
