Johnnie Daniel Bond, Jr.
Johnnie Bond graduated from University of Tennessee College of Law in 2002. During law school he worked as an associate lawyer at HCA Healthcare Company in its General Counsel Office. After law school, Johnnie took a job in the transaction practice group at Armstrong Allen, a large mid-south regional law firm based in Memphis, Tennessee. At Armstrong, Johnnie worked with James McLaren, the firm's transactions practice group leader, in merger & acquisition transactions helping hospitals spin-off hospital chains, medical office buildings and other assets. In the transactions group Johnnie also worked on municipal finance transactions for major development projects with the Memphis Center City Commission, the downtown development authority for Memphis.
Unlike most transaction lawyers, Johnnie quickly proved that he could also double as a savvy trial attorney. When not working on transactions with McLaren, Johnnie worked with other litigation attorneys in the firm assisting clients in court hearings and complex litigation disputes. Johnnie earned the nickname “Double Agent Bond” among lawyers in the firm after helping McLaren close a major transaction and winning a minor bench trial for a client all in the same week.
After Armstrong Allen, Bond moved to Washington, DC to focus his entire career on his passion to become one of America’s top trial lawyers. Johnnie teamed up with Donald Temple, a trial lawyer who received national acclaim in 1997 after securing an unprecedented $1 Million verdict against the retail giant Eddie Bauer in US District Court for Southern Maryland.
With Temple, Johnnie "cut his teeth" as a trial attorney and began to aggressively pursue plaintiff’s cases on behalf of people victimized by personal injury, medical malpractice, police brutality, and discrimination. Temple and Johnnie co-counseled with the Johnnie Cochran Firm to litigate a multimillion dollar claim against local police officers for life-altering injuries resulting from a wrongful hot-pursuit accident.
Over Johnnie’s career, he has litigated personal injury claims against giant corporations like Enterprise Rent-a-car and Marriot Hotels to name a few. His victories include appellate victories against Wells Fargo for predatory lending claims as well as medical malpractice claims against huge hospitals and negligent medical staff. His experience working on the inside and with large corporations gives Johnnie an edge in legal battles against big companies. Johnnie started focusing on medical malpractice in birth injury cases after watching a family friend’s baby boy suffer from debilitating brain injuries caused by medical malpractice during the birthing process. Johnnie has teamed up with Jack Beam of Beam and Raymond to help children suffering from birth injuries sustained by medical malpractice in hospitals located in the Washington, DC and Baltimore Metropolitan Area.
Johnnie is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia, US District Court for the District of Columbia, US District Court for the District of Maryland, State of Tennessee, and as Pro Hac Vice Counsel in Commonwealth of Virginia and State of Maryland.
