In a world where personal and professional connections are becoming digitalized more and more, the focus on developing meaningful in-person relationships has taken a back seat. In the legal landscape, clients can easily become frustrated with the often impersonal nature and reduction of case numbers when trying to build a relationship with their lawyer. At the forefront of breaking down common stereotypes is Riah Greathouse, an Atlanta-based lawyer who takes great pride in building connections with his clients.

With a passion for fostering fairness and leveling the playing field, Greathouse founded Greathouse Trial Law, LLC, and he is redefining what practicing law looks like. Greathouse has been selected to the Georgia Super Lawyers Rising Stars and the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40. He has also been featured on various platforms for his legal commentary skills, including major news networks like CNN and MSNBC. He doesn’t just explain high-profile trials like the Trump Indictment but dissects while translating legalese into layman’s terms, showcasing his legal prowess while democratizing access to legal knowledge. Greathouses’s legal commentary empowers the public to become active participants in the national conversation surrounding critical legal issues. His rise as a media personality underscores his legal expertise but, more importantly, positions him as a champion of public legal education.

Where other law firms boast about fancy schools and big names, Greathouse approaches law from a different perspective. He applies a holistic approach to practicing law where clients are put first, focusing on building meaningful connections that can create positive change in the lives of those he represents. Battling the obstacles he faces as a minority in the legal landscape, Greathouse embraces exceptional standards, a philosophy that transcends throughout his team. Greathouse Trial Law stands out against competitors in a saturated market due to efforts to stay above average and committed to excellence. 

This magnetic CEO’s athletic background built his competitive spirit and commitment to hard work. Greathouse, now specializing in personal injury, is an advocate for the underdogs, often battling powerhouse insurance companies in the courtroom. “I became a lawyer to basically even the playing field in life, and that’s what I do and have done,” remarks Greathouse. Refusing to sacrifice his approachability and ability to form genuine connections, Greathouse ensures that legal battles are less intimidating for his clients. 

Prioritizing the needs and well-being of his clients has led Greathouse Trial Law to be recognized as the fastest-growing small law firm in the nation in 2020, according to Law Firm 500. Today, the law firm has recovered over 100 million dollars for their clients. 

Beyond his position as CEO, Greathouse has contributed to major news networks like CNN and MSNBC, viewed as a trusted legal voice who is capable of providing insightful commentary on high-profile court cases. 

Greathouse’s belief that the essence of practicing law resides with serving clients and their stories has led to remarkable growth for his firm and speaks volumes about his dedication to leveling the playing field.
