I am a Nashville native and the owner and managing partner of the firm. I represent people all across Tennessee in cases involving serious injuries from car crashes, truck wrecks, motorcycle accidents, construction injuries and other types of injuries. I do not and have never represented an insurance company. I also manage the firm's probate and Social Security Disability practice.

In 2015, and every year since, I was awarded the prestigous AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell. I have been rated by Superlawyers for personal injury cases since 2013. I know you are looking for the best injury attorney in Nashville. You deserve the best, especially when dealing with an insurance company. 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. That is a trait hard to find in a TV commercial or on a billboard.

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 previously served as the President of the Middle Tennessee Wrestling Officials Association, a not-for-profit corporation chartered to promote amateur wrestling in middle Tennessee. For ten years I was a high school wrestling referee. Now I enjoy spending time away from the office playing golf or watching the Nashville Predators. 

I serve on the board of directors of the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association and I am a member of the American Association for Justice, Tennessee Bar Association and Nashville Bar Association.

Someone you can really trust!
Jonathan helped me and my family out at a time when we needed it the most. Let's be honest, rarely do folks engage attorneys and it's not something most of us have much experience in. That's where Jonathan comes in! He took the time to listen intently, truly understand our needs and concerns and then guide us to best possible resolution. We cannot thank him enough and I would recommend him to anyone in need.

Prote'ge'
First, I want to start off by saying that when a person speaks on attorneys not giving their all, not being honest, they are all out for the money, and that they really do not care about their clients.......that is absolutely the most ficticious statement I have ever heard in my life to the ultimate power when it comes to Attorney Jonathan Williams! This man fought for me and believed within me the whole entire time that he went over and beyond when dealing with my case. He was a God send to my life during my hard times. Mr. JJonathan Williams took on my case when everyone else turned their backs on me and told me they didnt want to chance because it was hard to prove, but this man here....he will fight for exactly what he knows is right and he will stand by you throughout until the very end! Please believe that he will not only be your attorney; yes, because that is his career; but he will also be that ear when you need it. I love his drive, his will, his push, his sincerity, his ability to get it done and done correctly, and his straight forward honestly. He will not sugar coat it by no means. He is hands down the best and i will come back to him if I ever need a helping hand because he always believed in me! And dont let me leave out his right hand lady Ms. Leslie honey. She stands by him and makes sure those checks marks are on every document. THANK YOU JOHNATHAN for believing in my case when no one would. I will forever be thankful for your push and drive! ML

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
I would HIGHLY recommend Jonathan Williams! That guy is personable, easy to talk to, and definitely knows his stuff! My wife and I were in a pretty bad car wreck, and he helped us get everything sorted out, along with a pretty substantial settlement ;) So, if you need a lawyer, Jonathan Williams is your guy!

Jonathan Williams
Jonathan Williams was able to take the burden of dealing with the car and health insurance issues associated with my car accident. He was professional and handled everything quickly and efficiently and told me not to worry, just recover. I highly recommend him for assistance and will call on him again if needed.

Johnathan is AMAZING!!!!
I'm 22 was involved in a car wreck , he helped me get exactly what I deserved from the insurance company. He was attentive to what I wanted/ needed he made great advisement to any suggestions I had and also very polite. He's not one of those lawyers that's throw you around. I met with several major law offices in regards to this accident and majority of those I never met my potential lawyer after meetings . But Johnathan was the absolute best. He's personable, kind, a go getter, and he cares about You not just money.

Accident
Jonathan came highly recommended to me from others who hired him. My case seemed a bit complex at first, but Jonathan and his team did an amazing job. I received a settlement way beyond the expected.

Would highly recommend
I was involved in an automobile accident with a government vehicle and my case was initially taken by a prominent law firm in Nashville. That law firm ultimately decided to decline my case and I did not know where to turn. A friend of the family recommended that I speak with Jonathan Williams about my case. From my initial consultation I knew Jonathan was the attorney for my case. He immediately put me at ease and made feel so much better. He started on my case right away and began investigating what had happened. Through all of his hard work, he was able to obtain a substantial settlement for me. He also helped me settle the debts that I had incurred from the accident. If I could give Jonathan a six star rating instead of a five, I would. I would highly recommend you use Jonathan Williams.

Highly Recommended and Fully Attentive!
While I was in Nashville I was seriously injured and very much in need of a good lawyer. I was recommended to Jonathan and all I can say was that I'ev never experienced a lawyer so helpful and so attentive to everything and any questions I had. It was such a relief to know he was looking out for me and doing everything he could to help me with my case. From the very beginning to the very end of the lawsuit he showed how much he cared and made the entire process so much less stressful. There's no one I'd rather have representing me than Jonathan Williams and his wonderful team at Larry R Williams Law Offices.

Settlement Won
I have preexisting health conditions with symptoms that were worsened after someone rear-ended me. It was a tricky case, but Jonathan worked to win my settlement.

Highly Reccommend Personal Injury Lawyer
I was involved in a rear-end collision which resulted in two major surgeries. Jonathan Williams and his staff made sure I was taken care from the first day I met him until we reached our settlement with a very difficult carrier. When I had a question, if Jonathan was out of the office, I was responded to as soon as he returned. Jonathan isn't just my lawyer, he's also now my friend.

Would recommend Jonathan Williams to anyone!
Jonathan Williams was my lawyer for my personal injury car wreck case. He was able to get the maximum allowable amount from insurance and always kept in contact with me throughout the process. My case was closed in just two months, and it was due to Jonathan staying on these insurance companies and getting things done! I will always recommend Jonathan to anyone needing legal help. Thank you Jonathan!

Client advocate
He was very helpful and informative not only with our lawsuit but with other issues that came up. He worked very hard on our case to get our settlement and ensure that we would get the full amount.
Posted by Sarah | April 25, 2013
Highly recommended!
I was in an auto accident in which the other driver was found totally at fault, with injuries including 2nd degree airbag burns to my hands, and soft tissue damage that lasted several weeks. I spent almost half a year negotiating with the insurance company, but they continued to offer me an extremely low amount, and threatened that they would withdraw the low offers already on the table. I called Jonathan, and it was the best decision I made. From the first phone call, Jonathan was personable and helpful; he gave me advice about how to settle the case without hiring him, but told me he would be there to help if the insurance company did not respond. He believed in my story and understood everything I had been through. He told me a range of what he thought my case might be worth, but did not promise anything, which I find is a great sign of an honest person. When the insurance company still ignored my demands, I hired Jonathan, and my life has been infinitely easier since. Jonathan is a great communicator, stays in touch, and works quickly. When the case went to trial, he did an excellent job of preparing me as a witness, and showed great professional repor with the judge and others in the courtroom. All of this led to a very favorable outcome of the case, exactly in the settlement range that Jonathan suggested might be awarded. Jonathan was also able to negotiate a much lower reimbursement amount to my medical insurance, putting more money in my pocket. Also, even after his check was cut, he contacted the hospital for me to negotiate with them on the balance that my insurance did not pay. Jonathan had my best interest at heart every step of the way. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Review for Jonathan Lewis Willams
My husband and I can't say enough about the work ethic of Jonathan Williams. Throughout our case , Jonathan was always extremely diligent in keeping us informed regarding the latest status , either by phone or by copying us on all correspondence sent out on our behalf. In addition, he always made himself available whenever we had questions or needed guidance. Jonathan was always the epitomy of professionalism; however, we felt he genuinely cared about the outcome of our case and we came to view him as a friend as much as our attorney. He truly conducts himself with honesty and honor. The legal community should be proud to have him as a member. We would and have recommmended Jonathan Williams to anyone needing legal counse; and we will continue to so.

Exceptional Service, Care and Craft!
I highly recommend Jonathan Williams. He handled my WC case and I had it settled in barely one month with positive results. Jonathan is very direct and up front about your options and possible outcomes. He is a lion as an attorney, but a lamb with his clients. He is caring and empathetic, yet tenacious at getting the job done. Jonathan will and does work hard for YOU! You will be treated with respect, dignity and courtesy by Jonathan and his staff. He is diligent in keeping you informed and following up with you on questions. You can't lose with Jonathan Williams!

Jonathan Willams is the only attorney anyone should use!
My husband was referred to Jonathan Williams by a doctor that he had seen. We had talked to a few workers comp attorney's that just did seem to want to take the case. From the get go, (first call), Jonathan had the care and knowledge in his voice that went a long way. Jonathan jumped on my husbands case and it took off. Even though it has been a long journey, Jonathan was always 2 steps ahead. He was always available at any time that we had questions. Jonathan and his staff is very friendly, down to earth, knowledgable, and very caring. Jonathan has demonstrated that he is a man of his word! The insurance company tried so hard to grasp at straws to find some wrong in this case, but with Jonathan on our side, he had all the proof to show the judge that the insurance company was so wrong about everything. Jonathan, you will never know how thankful we are that you came into our lives! You truly feel like a life long friend to us!
