For Jon Conlin, practicing personal injury law is more than filing lawsuits and going to court, it’s an act of chivalry. Emboldened by the idea that plaintiff’s attorneys can take on the biggest, most prepared defendants on behalf of injury victims, he pursued a career in law that’s spanned more than 15 years. In fact, he started working at Cory Watson Attorneys as a law clerk while studying at The University of Alabama School of Law, and he’s been at the firm since.
A Birmingham native with deep Alabama roots, Jon attended Indian Springs High School before earning his bachelor’s degree from Samford University. And while some believe you can either go big or go home, Jon chose to pursue multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements from the place he’s always called home.
A nationally-recognized litigator, Jon will tell you that his true pride comes from the positive effects his work is able to create for the clients he represents. When asked what he likes best about helping people through the law, he says, “Maybe it’s the Don Quixote in me, but sometimes the world needs more people who are willing to tilt at windmills.”
