Jarian Lyons has experience in several areas of personal injury law including pharmaceutical 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 his pursuit of a law degree should be utilized to help those that have lost loved ones or have been injured due to no fault of their own. Parks & Crump first welcomed Jarian in 2003 as a volunteer intern and then again as a law clerk during the summer of 2005. Since Jarian joined Parks & Crump on a full-time basis in 2006, he has worked zealously for clients that have 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.
Jarian leads the firm’s Mass Tort Department and has worked extensively in pharmaceutical drug litigation matters in Multidistrict Litigation involving the drugs Avandia, Baycol, Bextra, Celebrex, Fosamax, Heparin, Vioxx and Zyprexa. In addition to his legal advocacy, Jarian is also a certified sports agent with the NFL Players Association.
Jarian is a native of Pensacola, Florida who 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. Jarian earned his first degree with honors in Political Science in 2002 and then earned a Masters in Applied Social Sciences in 2003. Jarian completed his FAMU education by earning a J.D. in May of 2006 as a member of the second class since the re-establishment of FAMU’s law school in 2002. While in law school, he 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 several after school activities including varsity basketball and the performing arts. Jarian is married to Trinetta Fisher Lyons, Esquire, and they are parents of a son and daughter. He is a member of the American Association for Justice, National Bar Association, Tallahassee Bar Association, Legal Services of North Florida Founders of Justice Society and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
