John P. O'Herron, ThompsonMcMullan, PC / Richmond
Appellate law operates unlike any other area of law, and requires an understanding—and appreciation for—the highly complex appellate rules, procedure, and process. It’s a legal discipline where John O’Herron has dedicated most of his law practice.

Driven by that experience and embracing the challenge of effective appellate advocacy, John offers a variety of appellate services to law firms, attorneys, and litigants who trust him for their appellate matters. This includes consulting and representation related to perfecting or resisting an appeal, briefing and argument, and amicus curiae representation.

John has represented insurance companies, individuals, non-profit organizations, and businesses in numerous appeals, tapping into his familiarity with appellate law and procedure and his proven track record of crafting successful appellate arguments. His unique expertise enables him to provide high-quality representation for written or oral advocacy to maximize the chance of success at both the petition and merits stages of an appeal.

John also excels in non-appellate matters. He regularly represents constitutional officers such as sheriffs and their deputies, clerks of court, and commonwealth’s attorneys in both litigation and non-litigation matters. He represents businesses in various types of disputes or legal needs, including those related to contract disputes or licensure, as well as insurance companies and their insureds in both coverage and liability disputes.

John and his wife live in Richmond with their five children. He enjoys music, reading, and spending time with his family. He is also passionate about education and is the founding president of Cardinal Newman Academy, an independent high school in Richmond.
