John M. Graves is an Independent Insurance Producer and Retirement Planner and member of the Affinity Advisory Network. He is also co-founder and co-managing partner of the law firm Graves & Graves, LLC, an Estate Planning and Elder Law firm in Canton, OH currently headed up by his wife, Lindsay N. Graves.
For the last several years, John has focused exclusively on Wealth Management and Retirement Strategies. His passion comes from being able to show clients how to protect, grow and eventually give as a legacy their money, while also achieving their retirement goals. He says his objective is to give each client and family peace of mind, while also showing them it is okay to really enjoy their retirement. For discerning clients, he councils on Legacy Creation.
John’s background is in banking and fiscal management, going back four generations of his family. Right out of law school, he earned a position as a Federal Regulatory Compliance Representative for U.S. Bank, N.A., the fifth largest bank in the United States. While there, he oversaw creating and monitoring consumer lending and financial policies for all 3500 branches of U.S. Bank across the nation, as well as representing U.S. Bank before the federal offices of the O.C.C., HUD and CFPB. In particular, he had a focus in financial and real estate lending regulations and strategies. Eventually, John had the experience to work alongside U.S. Bank’s high net worth client divisions. These divisions consist of clients between $1-5 million in assets, and clients $5-25 million in assets. The experience left him with the desire to service such clients in his own private practice, which he established with his wife in 2013. Of immense pride to him is that they achieved such prominent levels of service and success for their clients that they were invited to return to the U.S. Bank Private Client and Trust division as outside legal advisors of Estate Planning and Elder Law concerns.
John has a juris doctorate from DePaul University, and a B.A. in International Studies from the University of North Carolina Charlotte, as well as minors in Economic theory and Japanese.
