John Kormanik

J kormanik 136 full 200x300

I am the “Kormanik” of Kormanik & Sneed. My practice focuses on helping good people through some of the worst times of their lives. I view myself not only as an advocate but a guide for my clients. In addition to obtaining the most favorable outcome possible for my clients, my focus is ensuring clients fully and completely understand exactly what is going on in their case.

I grew up in New Jersey (exit 163 or 16W), became a Registered Respiratory Therapist, moved to San Diego, married, had a daughter and then went to law school. I graduated from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California, in 1998. My family and I moved to Boise in 1998.

I've completed 3 full distance Ironman triathlons, a few 1/2 Ironmans, and some longer-distance open water swims. When I'm not in the office or in court fighting for the rights of my clients, I enjoy spending time riding my bike, hanging out with my wife and daughter, and walking in the Boise Foothills with my Yellow Labrador Olive.
