My work focuses on helping people injured in car crashes, trucking accidents, and other incidents causing personal injury; and helping others who have been victimized at work by overtime and wage violations, harassment, and discrimination. I also work in class actions on behalf of thousands of people who have suffered harm from insurance companies and corporations. I have been practicing law in Atlanta, Georgia for over 25 years, but I have litigated matters in 20 states.
I love the practice of law because it allows me to help people in need. I believe that helping people involves more than getting the largest possible recovery. It also includes listening to and responding to your needs, making you as comfortable with the process as possible, and helping you deal with medical bills, creditors, employers, and anything that adds stress to your situation. I also know that delay is one of the most frustrating things about lawsuits for people who have been injured. The firm is dedicated to never be the cause of delay.
In addition to representing people who need our help, I love working with our younger lawyers and staff mentoring them to be the best people and lawyers they can be. I am happy to say that our lawyers and staff are smart and talented but also great people and a lot of fun to be around.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife, two children, and dog Lulu. Some of our best family time includes walks, biking, swimming, good food, playing with Lulu, and cheering for the Bulldogs, Braves, Falcons, Hawks, and Atlanta United!
Here are some of my successes. Although some of the amounts below are large, I get great satisfaction and work just as hard on any case where someone needs help. It does not matter how big the case is.
$13 million recovery for construction accident
$5.1 million recovery for industrial explosion
$2.9 million trial verdict in personal injury lawsuit for back injury
$2.6 million recovery for trucking accident
$1.77 million trial verdict in business tort dispute relating to breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract
