Wild Animal Attacks: Does the Premises Owner Have Liability?

Posted on April 18, 2014

Jury Duty: The Tenet of the American Judicial System

Posted on April 07, 2014
I read with horror the article in today's Fulton County Daily Report, our legal news organ, about a lawyer who received a summons for jury duty in DeKalb County and who then promptly and arrogantly emailed the judge informing the judge, Hon. Dax Lopex, DeKalb County State Court, that if selected for the jury she would blame the plaintiff and automatically find for the defendant...

Judge or Jury? Which Would You Prefer Decide Your Fate?

Posted on March 13, 2014

"State of Emergency" Means Immunity

Posted on January 30, 2014
We here in Atlanta, Georgia are digging out from the unbelievable experience of Snow Gridlock 2014. On Tuesday, January 28, 2014, many Atlantans, who normally had a commute of 30 minutes or so, found themselves stuck in a nightmarish gridlock that super-sized their commute to 12 hours or even more, as they attempted to leave the city at the same time that the other 1...

Seatbelts Not Always the Answer

Posted on January 27, 2014
So often in personal injury lawsuits I have filed in Georgia involving injuries sustained during a car wreck, the defense attorney boasts that the plaintiff wasn't wearing her seat belt, the jury will know it and, voila! Defense verdict! Not so fast!! Many times, even a seat belt won't prevent a serious or even fatal injury in a car wreck...

Remembering a Great Lawyer and Friend: Cliff Brashier

Cliff was one of my dearest friends and represented the best that lawyers can be...

Posted on January 06, 2014

Deference to the Trial Court? Complete Submission or Polite Respect?

Posted on December 09, 2013
As many of you know, I have tried a lot of cases over the last 25 years as a plaintiff's personal injury trial lawyer here in Atlanta, Georgia. I also have appeared numerous times (37 at last count) in Georgia's appellate courts and as a trial lawyer I handle my cases through completion, including the appellate process...

$35 Million Dollar Verdict Returned in Cobb County

Posted on November 21, 2013
Following up on my blog from a few days ago regarding the Joshua Martin v. Six Flags trial, the jury returned a verdict last night in favor of Joshua for $35 Million. The jury apportioned 2% fault to each of the four gang members who plead guilty to some criminal charge in relation to the beating of Joshua, which means Six Flags Over Georgia is responsible for roughly $32 Million of the verdict.

Waiting on a Jury

Posted on October 03, 2013
Well, I am writing from the witness room next to Courtroom 2F of the Fulton County State Court, Atlanta, Georgia. This has been my home-away-from-home for the last two weeks. I am waiting on a jury. This may be the most gut-wrenching time of a trial, although there are many...

Jurors Should Walk a Mile in Your Client's Shoes

Posted on September 20, 2013
As a plaintiff's personal injury trial lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia, I have tried many personal injury cases on behalf of very deserving clients. My job is to persuade the jurors my client is deserving of money damages to compensate them for the injuries they have received that may be permanent, something they'll have to deal with the rest of their lives...

Swimming Pool Pumps Need Emergency Cutoff Switches

Posted on August 16, 2013

Hit and Run Motorcyle Wreck in DeKalb County Creates Uninsured Motorist Claims

Posted on July 17, 2013
I was just reading about devastating wreck in DeKalb County caused by two racing motorcycles. The photographs from this wreck make it clear this was an horrific wreck. The victims are lucky to be alive. It is also unbelievable that one of the racing motorcyclists, who, apparently, slid up under a car, was able to get up and leave the scene of the wreck...

Your Uninsured Motorist Coverage Covers You When You Are a Pesdestrian and Hit by a Hit and Run Vehicle

Posted on May 07, 2013
As a plaintiff's personal injury attorney who handles a wide variety of car wreck cases in Atlanta and the surrounding Metro area, I am sometimes, though not that often, asked to represent people in hit and run incidents. I say not that often because I don't think many people know that their own car insurance may provide coverage to them when they are involved in a hit and run incident, especially when they are hit as a pedestrian...

All I Really Know About Professionalism I Learned in Golf

Posted on April 16, 2013
You probably recall Robert Fulghum?s popular book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, which was first published in 1988.

Georgia Highway Deaths Total 19 Over Thanksgiving Holiday

Posted on November 26, 2012
