Jonathan Lewis Williams

About me

I am a Nashville native and Larry Williams’ son. I have enjoyed getting to know people all across middle Tennessee representing fine folks who are injured due to car crashes and car wrecks, motorcycla accidents, construction injuries and other types of claims.  I have recently enjoyed represented homeowners in real estate litigation and business in contract disputes. I do not and have never represented an insurance company. In 2015 I was awarded the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell.


I am the firm's managing partner and assist other attorneys in our firm with estate planning, probate, Social Security Disability and business law matters.


You are looking for the best injury attorney in Nashville. You deserve the best. In order to meet that expectation, I commit to every client that I will aggressively pursue the case. I am here when needed, I answer my phone. If you want to talk to your lawyer, I am here for you. If not, I promptly return phone calls and emails. I never forget that I work for you.


I graduated  from North Carolina State University graduating Cum Laude in 2003. Thereafter I received my J.D. from Nashville School of Law in 2007. While in law school I worked for my father as the firm's law clerk.


In college I was a three-year letter winner and member of two ACC Championship wrestling teams. I was also a a four-time recipient of the scholar athlete award and three times an ACC All Conference Academic Team member.


I currently serve as the President of the Middle Tennessee Wrestling Officials Association, a not-for-profit corporation chartered to promote amateur wrestling in middle Tennessee. On the weekends in the winter you will find me at high school and college-wrestling match as the referee. Otherwise, I will be on the golf course.


Professional affilitations include serving on the board of directors of the Tennessee Association for Justice, member of the Tennessee Bench/Bar Committee and former member of the Harry Phillips' Inn of Court.
