Biography

John Dufour is a native of Carrollton. He has a bachelor's degree from Emory University, and is an honor graduate from the University of Georgia school of law. Upon graduation he practiced for 2 years with a nationally known firm in Savannah, working on class action lawsuits, personal injury, and ERISA litigation.

John has practiced law in Carrollton since 1998, focused on the areas of personal injury, workers compensation, bankruptcy, and social security disability. He has recovered tens of millions of dollars for the benefit of injured and disabled clients, and he has filed over 5,000 bankruptcy cases for individuals seeking debt relief and creditor protection. He has handled injury claims that span the range of possibilities, from simple auto accidents, to slip and falls, to nursing home negligence, to complex construction claims. Whether the client's settlement is $3,000 or $3,000,000, John devotes his time and energy to maximize the client's benefit, because each client's case is top priority for that client.

John is married to Ginger Dufour f/k/a Ginger Conaway from Temple, and he has two daughters, Claire and Kate. Claire graduated from Central High and from the University of Alabama, and is enrolled in graduate school studying speech therapy. Kate graduated from Central High and is attending the University of Alabama in pursuit of a teaching career. John and his family attend Temple United Methodist Church.
