This week, John was inducted as President of the Tennessee Trial Lawyer’s Association (TTLA). This is an organization of trial lawyers whose primary purpose is to advance the cause of civil justice for all Tennesseans and to those who visit our great State. John has been involved in this organization since 2000. He has served on several different committees, most recently the legislative committee. When asked about his new leadership role, John says,

“I am so thankful for this great group of men and women who give of themselves to this cause. I am humbled and thankful for their trust in me, and I vow to not let them down. This has never been a position I have sought. I have seen others before me go to great sacrifice; but I am duty bound to carry the torch forward.”

As president, John and the executive team at TTLA and their excellent staff will interact with legislators on a large scale. TTLA is often asked to help legislators see the “unintended consequences” of proposed legislation and what harm it may cause to our citizens. TTLA also sponsors bills to protect the cause of people over insurance companies and their lobby. “When the legislature is in session, we are on full alert for bills, particularly caption bills, where the insurance lobby tries to sneak in shelters for insurance companies to the detriment of the citizens of this great State.”

John will continue to run his law firm and mentor his great team at GriffithLaw, along with the added duties of being TTLA president. “I have a great team at GriffithLaw. I am so proud of everyone here.” John has been recognized as one of the leading trial lawyers in Tennessee with 2 record-setting verdicts for his clients. “We don’t accept the way insurance companies evaluate claims. I tell my lawyers that insurance companies don’t sit and evaluate verdicts, real people do. Insurance adjustors never get the last word.”
