ATTORNEY JOHN R. SZYMANKIEWICZ ESQ, PE
Attorney John Szymankiewicz is the founder of Beer Law Center and the head of the business practice area of Matheson & Associates PLLC. Prior to becoming an alcohol attorney, John worked in the specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals industry as an engineer and project manager.
Since graduating from North Carolina Central University School of Law, John’s practice has focused on alcohol law and regulation, corporate and contracts law, and serving as the general counsel for small businesses. As a home brewer for nearly 20 years, the move to practice alcohol regulation law was a natural fit. John specializes in applying his comprehensive understanding of the craft alcohol industry to his growing practice.
