Subrogation Litigator John W. Newbern Joins SubroSmart as Deputy Head of Claims

SubroSmart, an international subrogation management company, today announced that John W. Newbern has joined the company as Deputy Head of Claims.        

Johnny joins SubroSmart after spending the last six years as a lead criminal prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office in Fort Worth, Texas. As an Assistant District Attorney, Johnny worked for the White-Collar Unit on high profile litigation and trial matters, which included the prosecution of organized crime, fraud, embezzlement, cyber security violations and identity theft. Johnny also spent some time serving in the Special Victim’s Unit, focusing primarily on prosecuting crimes of violence against children. With nearly 40 trials to verdict in his career, Johnny brings his expertise as a seasoned litigator to SubroSmart as Assistant General Counsel overseeing all aspects of subrogation claim management throughout the United States and Canada.

“I have been so proud to serve the people of Tarrant County since 2014. When I met the leadership at SubroSmart, I quickly recognized that we shared common values…hard work and determination to raise the bar in professionalism and service,” commented Johnny. “Working on subrogation matters provides a unique opportunity to use many of the skills I’ve developed throughout my career as an attorney. I am adept at investigating fact patterns and then holding responsible parties accountable for their actions. I am pleased to have joined a truly dedicated team of professionals working on state-of-the-art technology to get the best results possible for our clients.”

Prior to his service in the District Attorney’s Office, Johnny was a practicing subrogation attorney and litigator for a national subrogation firm focusing on all matters of insurance subrogation, including the handling of settlement negotiations, mediations, and arbitration hearings for a large docket of cases.

“When we met Johnny for the first time, everything just clicked. Johnny understands our product and objectives extremely well, and shares in our passion of driving success through professionalism and service” said Gregory Zarin, co-founder and President of SubroSmart.  “It was immediately evident to us that he would bring tremendous value and leadership to an already successful, energetic team at the perfect time while our company continues to expand.”
