I help individuals who have been hurt by someone else's negligence or misconduct. At my firm, Butler Tobin LLC, we believe in hard work and straight shooting.
I have been named Georgia's Young Litigator of the Year, a Rising Star, a Top 100 Trial Lawyer, and among Georgia's Legal Elite. I have won jury verdicts of up to $150 million. At Butler Tobin, we work exclusively on a contingency basis, meaning that if our firm does not win money for our client, our client pays us nothing.
I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. I earned an undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University, completed the Stanford University Graduate School of Business Summer Institute, and earned my law degree at the University of Georgia. During law school, I participated in law review, moot court, and mock trial. I graduated in the top 10% of my class and, while still in law school, won a trial for a man falsely accused of driving under the influence who could not afford a lawyer. Before starting my own firm, I worked at a public defender's office, clerked at two of Atlanta's most large defense firms, served as a staff attorney for Judge Lisa Godbey Wood of the Southern District of Georgia, tried cases as prosecutor, and handled civil cases at Butler, Wooten & Fryhofer.
