When we say “We treat every case, regardless of size, as if it’s our most important case,” we mean it. While each case is different, our formula stays the same: hard work, aggressive representation, and attention to detail. Because we give every case our very best, we consistently achieve outstanding results.
We’ve helped a lot of clients over the years, but what we did 9 or 10 years ago, or even in 2017, isn’t going to tell you what we do today. So, here are 25 recent cases in the last 2.5 years alone.
25 CASES IN THE PAST 2.5 YEARS:
- $2,950,000, WRONGFUL DEATH: Billups v. Mills, State Court of Fulton County, (2018) – The defendant driver’s insurance company paid $450,000 more than the entire $2.5 million dollar insurance policy limit because we established that the defendant’s insurance company had acted in bad faith during settlement negotiations.
- $1,500,000, PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT: Levenson v. Barr, State Court of DeKalb County, (2019) – Our client was struck as she walked pushing a stroller in a crosswalk. We filed a personal injury lawsuit on her behalf and her husband’s behalf for a loss of consortium claim. We focused on the loss of consortium and proved that despite there being only $140,000 in medical bills, the significant issue was the disruption to the family life at home. The lawyer for the defendant advised us before trial that the driver’s insurance company would meet our settlement demand.
- $1,500,000, MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT: R.M. v. Covington, State Court of Fulton County, (2018) – After 6 months of discovery and the judge placing the case on a trial calendar, the defendant driver’s insurance company met our demand and paid the full policy plus the umbrella policy.
- $975,000, CAR ACCIDENT: Lowy v. Suazo, State Court of DeKalb County, (2019) – With a broken leg as a result of a head-on wreck, our client had $167,000 in medical bills. We spent months preparing our client and witnesses trial; that intense preparation paid off when the defendant driver’s insurance company’s lawyer defending the driver met with us before trial.
- $950,000, PREMISES LIABILITY: AG v. Landowner, pre-suit settlement (2018) – An unguarded property resulted in serious arm and leg injuries.

- $750,000, TRUCK ACCIDENT: White v. Pemberton Truck Lines Inc.; Cherokee Insurance Company; and William Johnson II, United States District Court Northern District of Georgia, (2018) – After trial began and the jury was selected, the case resolved during the trial while the jury was on break. A claims representative for the insurance company attended the trial and saw we would win.
- $700,000, WORK TRUCK ACCIDENT: Parsons v. Bravo and Clean Water Consultants Inc., State Court of Athens-Clarke County, (2019) – We deposed the driver as well as the company’s 30(b)(6) corporate representative who provided conflicting testimony, and after we gathered evidence from former employees to prove our theory, we resolved the case at mediation for over six and half times the medical bills.
- $550,000, PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT: Naidu v. Patel, State Court of Fulton County, (2019) – Two vehicles collided that resulted in one of the cars ricocheting into our client as she stood on the sidewalk. We helped our client negotiate her medical bills so that she would keep the lion’s share of the car insurance.
- $500,000, HAIR SALON BURN: C.T., pre-suit settlement, (2020) – While getting hair highlights at a well-known hair salon, our young client suffered a third degree scalp burn which required two skin graft surgeries.
- $375,000, TRUCK ACCIDENT: Buggs v. Osborne, State Court of DeKalb County, (2019) – A tractor driver for a major transportation company failed to follow the federal safety rules laid out in the FMCSR. The defendant company’s insurance carrier paid handsomely for the driver’s inadequate training.

- $292,871.09, CAR ACCIDENT: H. G. v. McRae, Hall County State Court, (2018) – Our client was struck by a drunk and high driver. Our client had less than $3,000 in medical bills, but we won an award that was almost 100 times more than the medical bills. This was one of the rare cases where in addition to collecting the car insurance proceeds, we also made the defendant driver pay some money from his own checking account because of how egregious he had behaved on the road.
- $260,000, MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT: Williams v. Knox, State Court of Gwinnett County, (2019) – The defendant driver, an elderly cancer survivor who was driving home from a chemotherapy appointment, struck the back tire of our client’s motorcycle. Our client made an excellent recovery, and did not want to put the defendant driver through a trial so the case resolved after depositions.
- $250,000, CAR ACCIDENT: Sapp v. [John Doe company], State Court of Athens-Clarke County, (2018) – Our client’s hand speared through his windshield after he was rear-ended. The insurance company’s representatives low-balled our client until we took over.

The day after the knockdown a claims adjuster for the grocery store contacted our client and offered her $7,000. About a year later, we won $190,501 more than the offer.
- $175,000, TRUCK ACCIDENT: Kwatia v. Green Logistics, State Court of Gwinnett County, (2019) – Workers compensation covered our client’s medical treatment, but we had to show that he had a good reason why he waited to notify his UIM carrier. After months of litigation the driver’s insurance company agreed to tender the policy limits and our client walked away happy.
- $167,000, BICYCLE ACCIDENT: Ellis v. Jimmy John’s of Atlanta, State Court of Fulton County, (2018) – The jury returned a verdict after a 3-day jury trial.

- $122,000, CAR ACCIDENT: Adams v. Shields, (2020) – Our client was sitting at the red light as she just exited a highway when she was rear-ended. Our client was what we call an “eggshell plaintiff” and so even though our client never needed any surgery, she did experience more pain than most.
