Raleigh, NC 27603
As an attorney at Whitfield, Bryson & Mason LLP, Jeremy Williams focuses on fighting for the rights of consumers in complex litigation. Since joining the firm in 2014 he has taken on leadership roles in large cases throughout the country, including: products liability class actions; class actions related to understaffing of adult care homes and fraudulent pricing schemes by insurance companies and pharmacies; complex business disputes on behalf of minority shareholders; and Medicaid fraud False Claims Act cases. In addition, Jeremy has represented owners in a number of lawsuits related to defective construction of residential and commercial real estate.
Jeremy earned his law degree from Campbell University School of Law as part of joint degree program that also allowed him to earn his M.B.A. from North Carolina State University. Prior to beginning this dual degree program, Jeremy attended Elon University where he received his Bachelor of Science. While in law school, Jeremy clerked at both Whitfield, Bryson & Mason and a regional litigation defense firm based in Raleigh. After law school, Jeremy joined that defense firm, where his practice was focused on defending health care providers and businesses in litigation throughout North Carolina. Jeremy’s background defending clients in litigation gives Jeremy a unique insight into how the other side thinks, insight he now uses to help clients who have been wronged by another person or company.
Jeremy is currently serving in leadership roles as a member of the Secretary and President-Elect for the Wake County Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division, on the Board of Directors for the Wake County Bar Association, and on the Young Ambassadors Steering Committee for SAFEchild, a non-profit dedicated to eliminating child abuse in Wake County, North Carolina. He has also previously served on the education committee for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, as an executive board member of the Triangle Chapter of the Elon Alumni Association, and is a member of the Public Justice Foundation, the American Association for Justice, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, the Wake County Bar Association, and the North Carolina Bar Association.
