John "Jack" Gannon
My legal journey has taken me through diverse practice areas, each offering unique challenges and opportunities for growth. I specialize in Estate Planning, Probate, Commercial & Financial, Real Estate Transactions, , and Municipal Land Use, Zoning, Planning & Licensing. multifaceted legal background equips me with the expertise to navigate the complexities of the legal world.
My journey through the legal landscape has been marked by various appointments and roles of great significance. In 2013, I assumed the honorable position of Associate Judge at the Pawtucket Municipal Court, a role I proudly continue to fulfill to this day. My dedication to the community extends beyond the courtroom, as I have served as a member and former chairperson of the Blackstone Valley Community Health Center since 2012. In 2011, I had the privilege of working as the Director of Administration for the City of Pawtucket, and from 2004 to 2010, I served as the Central Falls Assistant City Solicitor and City Solicitor.
My commitment to justice and governance goes even further, as I provided legal counsel to the East Providence Personnel Board from 1997 to 2015 and the Rhode Island House of Representatives Labor Committee in 2005-2006. I also lent my expertise as legal counsel to the Cumberland Zoning Board from 2007 to 2015. Notably, I served as the Pawtucket City Solicitor from 1992 to 1997.
My passion for justice and unwavering commitment to my community have defined my career. I look forward to applying my knowledge and experience to serve your legal needs, as I continue my quest for a more just and equitable world.
