I am the founder of The Williams Law Group and have dedicated my practice through two decades to helping everyday people and their families in accident, injury and wrongful death cases. I am certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and the Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization and have also been a frequent lecturer at legal seminars to other Tennessee attorneys.
I am also actively involved in a number of legal associations and organizations that work to maximize the rights of those who are injured. Nationally, I am an active member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), a member of the AAJ Leaders Forum as well as a member of the Public Justice Foundation. Locally and throughout the State of Tennessee, I currently serve as Vice President of the Tennessee Association for Justice (TAJ), I'm on the Executive Committee and Board of Governors of the TAJ, I'm a member of the TAJ Circle of Advocates, and serve as Co-Chairman of the TAJ Legislative Committee. I also a contributing member of Lawyers Involved for Tennessee.
I am a veteran, battle-tested trial attorney with significant courtroom experience, having tried literally hundreds of cases in front of a judge or jury and obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for his clients. I have obtained numerous substantial verdicts, including a $6,200,000.00 verdict believed to be the largest verdict ever obtained in Sumner County, Tennessee. In addition to courtroom successes, I have also negotiated numerous significant settlements and represented clients not only across Tennessee, but across the country from California to Pennsylvania.
For example I recently represented the estate and minor child of one of the victims of the Comair Flight 5191 crash in Lexington, Kentucky. During that lengthy litigation—which involved dozens of plaintiffs, numerous defendants, and countless other attorneys—I was actively involved as part of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (which guided the litigation for the various Plaintiffs) and served with a group of select attorneys chosen for the Plaintiffs’ trial team.
Although courtroom victories are exciting, the most gratifying part of my work is seeing the benefits that my clients receive as a result of the settlements and/or trial victories achieved.
More importantly than all of the above, I am a Christian, father of two beautiful girls and the husband of a beautiful loving wife.
