Memphis, Tennessee Injury Attorneys
Our nationally-recognized have recovered millions and millions of dollars for residents of Memphis and all of Tennessee. Why the emphasis on "recovered"? Because a lot of injury attorneys will go to trial against an unrepresented party who has no assets or insurance and get a big jury verdict. But because the at-fault party does not have any assets or insurance, the injured client never sees a penny of that big verdict. And even though the injury lawyer put zero money in the client's pocket, the lawyer will still use the big judgment on their website or other marketing materials to make themselves look more successful than they truly have been.
Our Definition of Success
At the Law Offices of John Day, a big judgment means nothing to us unless it puts money in our client's pocket. So when we tout our judgments and settlements, you can rest assured the money was actually recovered for our client as opposed to just being a number on an uncollectible jury verdict.
