John Rule is an Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Darwin office. He helps injured clients throughout the NT with road and work injury compensation claims as well as public liability claims.

John graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Laws in 2010 and completed a Bachelor of Arts at Boston College in 2011. He joined Maurice Blackburn in Victoria later the same year, and was admitted to practice in 2013. He moved to our Darwin office in 2018.

John likes to be a positive force for people in the community in their time of need and he has a strong conviction that everyone deserves a ‘fair go’. He understands that the odds are often stacked in such a way that the needs of everyday people often go unmet, and he works hard to redress this.

“I enjoy fighting for the rights of everyday Australians to achieve fair results, especially when there’s an imbalance of power,” says John.

“People who are seriously injured require legal advice and advocacy when dealing with insurance companies in order to protect their interests and ensure they receive their full entitlements and I believe that Maurice Blackburn is the leading firm in this area. I’m proud of the work we do and the way we do it."

John also likes speaking up for vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and motorcyclists. He is an active supporter of Maurice Blackburn’s Stop SMIDSY (Sorry Mate I Didn’t See You) road safety campaign and was part of the legal team that successfully appealed a Magistrates’ Court decision to fine a motorcycle rider using a camera on his helmet.
