Meet Attorney,

John McElheny


 Birmingham, AL

 Nashville, TN


John has practiced personal injury law for most of his career.  He has tried dozens of jury trials, including trials in Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.   He has tried dozens more bench trials and has handled over 1,000 litigation cases as the first chair attorney. 

John has been named a “Rising Star” two separate years by Super Lawyers and a top 10 Plaintiff’s lawyer under 40 by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys.  He received his first verdict of over $1,000,000 in just his third year of practice.

While John is proud of the work that he has done on behalf of his clients, he is much more proud to be the husband of Leslie Nelson McElheny and the father to Abby, Miles, Reid, and whichever foster child his family may be fortunate enough to have in their home at any given time.  He is a member of Homewood Community Church and serves as the President of the Homewood Patriot Youth Baseball League.
