Success Stories
Speaking Engagement
In September of 2015, Paul Andrew in our firm was a guest speaker for a group of attorneys educating them on updates in Social Media Law.  

Another Appellate Victory
In August of 2015, Paul Andrew in our firm helped establish new legal precedent in Georgia.   Mr. Andrew had represented a subcontractor in an arbitration.   While the arbitrator did award the subcontractor a sizable judgment, it was not as much as what should have been awarded.   Mr. Andrew asked a superior court judge to vacate the award.  The contractor argued that a contract clause prohibited the subcontractor from seeking any type of judicial review of the award.  The trial judge agreed but the Court of Appeals agreed with our client, holding that parties cannot insulate an arbitration award from legal review (although such review is limited in scope).  

Appellate Victory
In July of 2015, Paul Andrew in our firm prevailed in an appeal.  In the underlying case, Mr. Andrew had won a six figure verdict for a small business.  The defendant in the case was represented by a very large firm but the jury deliberated less than 30 minutes and awarded our client all of the monies they were seeking.  The defendant appealed but he Court of Appeals agreed that there was no error and our client's underlying judgment is valid (the defendant has filed a petition for review with the Georgia Supreme Court).
Large Verdict

In 2014, Paul Andrew in our firm represented a property owner and recently obtained a $1.2 million dollar verdict against a contractor who the Court found did not properly pay subcontractors.   Despite this large verdict, the owner has suffered extreme hardship.  Contact us for important information to use when conducting due diligence on your contractor. 

Personal Liability
Creditors are still very aggressive in trying to hold individual owners liable for corporate debts.  In 2012, our firm represented a business client sued by an aggressive creditor.  The creditor sued on the basis of a "personal guaranty" signed by the business owner.  We were successful in winning the case...

Largest Legal Malpractice Verdict in Georgia for 2010
We recently obtained what was the largest verdict for legal malpractice in Georgia during 2010.  Paul Andrew successfully procured a verdict in excess of $850,000.00 against a real estate closing attorney..
