About me

Jason L. Nohr (“Jay”) has over twenty years of experience handling complex personal injury claims and litigation in the state and federal trial and appellate courts of Georgia.  Mr. Nohr's practice is is focused upon the areas of catastrophic injury, wrongful death, professional negligence, medical malpractice, birth injuries as result of medical and nursing negligence, nursing homes and elder abuse, motor vehicle collisions, recreational boating  collisions, and maritime law.   He has also been appointed as a Receiver by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia in complex securities fraud cases.


Mr. Nohr is also an experienced appellate advocate with successful appeals in the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals, and Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, including several cases of first impression in Georgia.  One of those cases involved whether a nursing home could use an arbitration clause to deny a resident's family a jury trial.  Mr. Nohr successfully defeated the nursing home’s efforts to force the case to arbitration, thereby helping to preserve the right to a jury trial for all Georgia nursing home residents and their family members. See Ashburn Health Care Center Inc. v. Poole, 286 Ga. App. 24, 648 S.E.2d 430 (2007).

Mr. Nohr is admitted to practice in the United States Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, all United States District Courts for the Northern and Middle Districts of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and all Georgia trial Courts.  He is a member of the American Association of Justice (Member: Birth Trauma Litigation, Medical Negligence Exchange Network, and Nursing Home Sections), the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Cobb County Bar Association, and served as an officer for the Cobb County Trial Lawyers Association, including as its President from 2007 to 2008.

  • Jason Ryan Manton

    I used to work with Jay and still consult with him on complex medical malpractice and personal injury cases. Jay is very detail-oriented and thorough in his approach to his cases, which is why I always like to get his thoughts and opinions on complicated fact patterns. Jay is well-respected by both plaintiffs' and defense lawyers, and is known for his aggressive representation of his clients. I give him my full recommendation.
