Jarian N. Lyons, founding partner of Lyons & Lenoir, LLC, has a wealth of experience in multiple areas of personal injury law including, but not limited to pharmaceutical drug litigation, premises liability and defective consumer products. His passion for personal injury law developed in 2002 after his 24-year-old cousin died of a heart condition due to a lack of proper medical attention. It was at that moment that Jarian decided to pursue his law degree and that his desire was to help those that have been injured due to no fault of their own and have lost loved ones like Attorney Lyons.
In 2003, the Law Offices of Parks & Crump welcomed Jarian as a volunteer intern and then again as a law clerk during the summer of 2005. After starting with Parks & Crump on a full-time basis in 2006, Jarian worked zealously for clients that experienced significant unexpected losses ranging from trucking accidents, tire tread separations, child drownings and infant crib deaths. Jarian’s investigation into an eight-month old infant’s crib death assisted the Consumer Products Safety Commission in the recall of over 985,000 drop-side baby cribs. To date ensuring the safety of innocent babies is still one of Jarian’s proudest moments as an attorney.
While with Parks & Crump Jarian lead their Mass Tort Department and worked extensively in pharmaceutical drug litigation matters in Multidistrict Litigation involving the drugs Avandia, Baycol, Bextra, Celebrex, Fosamax, Heparin, Vioxx and Zyprexa.
From 2013-2016, Jarian worked as a presuit attorney for a large central Florida firm where he worked to recover 4.5 million dollars for clients injured in automobile accidents.
Jarian is a native of Pensacola, Florida and graduated from Woodham High School where he received a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship to attend college. Jarian is a three-time graduate of Florida A & M University, earning his bachelors degree with honors in Political Science in 2002; a Masters in Applied Social Sciences in 2003; and his J.D. from the Florida A&M College of Law in May of 2006. Jarian was a member of the second graduating class since the re-establishment of FAMU’s law school in 2002. While in law school, Jarian was a member of the Jesse McCrary Chapter of the Black Law Students Association and also served as Parliamentarian of the Student Bar Association from 2003-2004. Jarian was also a Certified Legal Intern with the Orange County Public Defender’s Office and assisted indigent clients with various landlord-tenant disputes through the FAMU Housing Clinic.
Jarian credits his desire for excellence and focus to his mother, who often worked two jobs during his youth and encouraged him to be involved in a myriad of after school activities including varsity basketball and the performing arts. Jarian is the proud father of three beautiful children. He is a member of the Florida Justice Association, Board Member; Legal Services of North Florida Founders of Justice Society and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
