In late 1989, the law firm of Nahon and Saharovich was formed with the idea of providing exceptional legal services with compassionate client care. Mr. Nahon and Alex Saharovich hired their future law partner, Corey B. Trotz, right out of law school to help with research, depositions, and court hearings. The law firm eventually decided to concentrate solely on representing clients who were injured in car and truck wrecks, work accidents, product liability, and other similar injury cases.
Today, the law firm known as Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz has grown to 32 lawyers and a support staff of over 100, with six offices throughout the Mid-South, making it one of the largest personal injury law firms in the country. Mr. Nahon has always wanted to level the playing field between individuals and the powerful companies that virtually have unlimited funding to defend cases. Mr. Nahon’s vision of helping injured victims continues throughout the entire firm today.
Mr. Nahon has been a guest lecturer at seminars and educational affairs and has taught and lectured the paralegal programs at Christian Brothers University and Southwest Tennessee Community College (formerly State Technical Institute of Memphis).
