About me

Mr. Jordan practices in the area of toxic torts, products liability and business litigation. He frequently litigates cases involving allegations of carcinogenic exposure to asbestos, diesel exhaust and other industrial substances. He also regularly represents American railroads in courts across the Southeast in lawsuits filed under the Federal Employers Liability Act. Mr. Jordan is active in the Firm’s frequent efforts to challenge the admissibility of adverse expert testimony. His experience under Daubert and corresponding state law covers a broad range of medical and scientific disciplines, including toxicology, industrial hygiene and pulmonary medicine. In a recent multi-million dollar lung cancer case, Mr. Jordan played a key role in the Firm’s successful challenge to the opinions of the plaintiff’s radiation health physicist, occupational safety expert, pulmonologist, and diagnosing physicians, resulting in a grant of summary judgment to the Firm’s client. Similarly, in a recent mesothelioma case, Mr. Jordan was instrumental in the Firm’s successful attack on the causation methodology of the plaintiff’s pathology and occupational medicine experts.


 


Mr. Jordan is also active in the Firm’s appellate practice. He has litigated in appellate courts in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Maryland and has served as amicus counsel in cases of interest to the railroad industry. Mr. Jordan speaks frequently on issues involving toxic torts and transportation law. Mr. Jordan also represents companies and individuals in a broad range of business-related disputes, including dissolution, business torts, and valuation matters. Prior to joining the Firm, Mr. Jordan practiced business litigation at a large Atlanta law firm.


Mr. Jordan currently serves on the Board of Directors of the STAR Foundation, a non-profit organization offering technological, financial, and life skills training to adults seeking sustainable employment. Mr. Jordan is married to Christy D. Jordan, who is the General Counsel and Vice President for Government Relations of the Southeast Georgia Health System. They have two children and live on St. Simons Island.
