At the Law Offices of John Day, P.C., our Nashville-based trial attorneys represent clients in two types of cases: (1) personal injury and wrongful death and (2) business litigation. While these two areas of the law are different, they share a common factor: they both allow us to pursue our profound interest in helping other people during difficult times in their lives.

Our experienced lawyers are here to help you protect the people and things that mean the most to you. When you are seriously injured or suffer the loss of a loved one, grief and fear about the future can consume you.  When your business is sued or damaged by the conduct of another, your very livelihood and financial future is threatened. In these situations, you want the very best team on your side to help you quickly resolve the present conflict and secure your future.


While we are headquartered in suburban Nashville, our award-winning attorneys will pursue justice anywhere in the State of Tennessee. In Middle Tennessee, we routinely go to the larger towns of Nashville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, Clarksville, Lebanon, Brentwood, Gallatin, Dickson, Cookeville, but our lawyers are also familiar faces in Pulaski, Winchester, Fayetteville and other smaller towns. In East Tennessee, we represent people in charming towns like Townsend, Farragut and Dandridge and the larger cities of Kingsport, Johnson City, Knoxville and Chattanooga. In West Tennessee, we will also go anywhere to help our clients -- from Selmer and Ripley to Jackson and Memphis. If you are in the State of Tennessee, rest assured we can help you.

We also handle some cases outside the State of Tennessee. In fact, our lawyers are licensed in Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan and can obtain pro hac vice admission in other states. If for some reason we can't help you in your State, we will try to help you find a highly-qualified lawyer who can help you obtain justice.


People hire us for results. While we obviously cannot guarantee a win in every single case, we do have a consistent reputation for success that is based on a simple formula: hard-work, exceptional knowledge of the law and a willingness to try your case. Our lawyers give 110% to our clients' cases because we believe there is no substitute for hard work.

But make no mistake, it does not matter how hard you work if you do not know the law. Our lawyers have written books and scores of articles on the law and have lectured and taught hundreds of other lawyers at seminars across the state. Lastly, we believe being able to skillfully try a case is critical to our success for two reasons. First, the obvious: your case may actually go to trial. If it does, you want someone who knows how to go into battle. Second, our willingness to take a case to trial helps us leverage the best possible settlement from our opponents. When the other side knows you are ready, willing and able to try your case, negotiations will always be more successful.


Our lawyers' ability to bring home a victory has been widely-recognized. In fact, since 1993, John Day has been named one of the country's top lawyers by Best Lawyers . U.S. News and World Report has ranked our firm as one of the nation's best, and Business Tennessee has consistently recognized John Day as one of the best lawyers in the State. Our attorneys have earned Martindale-Hubbell's AV preeminent ratings and have been honored as Super Lawyers . These are just a few of the accolades we have earned over the years. Here are more.
