About John A. Mays, Jr.
John is a zealous advocate for clients inside and outside of the courtroom. As a litigation and trial attorney, he devotes most of his practice to personal injury and wrongful death cases. John has long known that he wanted to represent people – not insurance companies. He strives daily to give clients the time and respect they deserve. Within his first three years of practicing law, John tried several cases to verdict as lead counsel. In his first jury trial out of law school, he obtained a verdict equal to six-times the medical bills and in excess of policy limits and has since won a majority of his cases including a bad faith judgment against an insurance company. John was a 2019, 2020, and 2021 Georgia Rising Stars honoree. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less. Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected to receive this honor. John and his wife live in Lawrenceville, Georgia with his wonderful son and three dogs. When not working, John enjoys spending time with family, cooking, and watching the Georgia Bulldogs.
