About Greg Jones:
Now in his fourth decade practicing personal injury law, Greg Jones’ success in his home state of North Carolina (previously he had 12 offices in both Carolinas) and throughout the U.S. and now Puerto Rico is grounded in his humble background growing up in and around Charlotte.
While many of his classmates at the University of North Carolina School of Law grew up in well to do families, he paid his way through school working as a teaching assistant, tutor to dyslexic kids, a cafeteria worker, a bagboy, a janitor and pipefitter. The fact that Jones didn’t grow up with a “silver spoon in my mouth” has helped him relate to and empathize with thousands of appreciative clients – and provide “the results, compassion and respect you deserve” – as a member in other firms and as the founder of Greg Jones & Associates, which he launched in 1998.
Despite his many years of favorable verdicts and settlements on individual injury and accident claims (car, trucking and motorcycle accidents, premises liability, dog bites, etc.), Jones has made a conscious shift these past two years to scale down those cases in favor of mass torts involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, medical devices liability and Mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer. He transferred those smaller cases to his associates and another law firm. Now, he frequently travels across the U.S. attending conferences and representing clients nationwide in Mesothelioma, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and other dangerous drug cases.
Jones enjoyed going against companies for manufacturing harmful drugs. It opened him and Greg Jones Law to a new world of practicing that involved multi-district litigation, the exact opposite of a class action lawsuit. MDL refers to a special legal procedure designed to speed the process of handling complex cases, including product liability lawsuits.
Jones applies the same litmus test when he considers cases involving medical device cases for such things as failed metal hip and knee replacements. He’s worked on cases against the medical device giant Medtronic and on others involving hernia mesh and transvaginal mesh.
