John MacVane is an experienced trial attorney who developed a passion for the courtroom early in his career. After graduating from Boston University School of Law, he worked as a Big Law trial associate, taking the lead in developing legal defenses, managing case discovery, deposing witnesses, and arguing dispositive motions. He also represented clients in civil trial proceedings, including preliminary injunctions and jury and bench trials. 

From there, John served as an assistant federal public defender in the Southern District of Texas. There, he handled all aspects of criminal representation — from motion practice to jury trials — for hundreds of indigent clients. This experience has continued to serve him well at Rusty Hardin & Associates, where he continues to handle criminal cases. John’s criminal defense experience also allows him to anticipate and analyze the criminal implications in civil cases, which also make up a significant portion of his practice.
