Holding Wrongdoers Responsible

Malone Law is known for its willingness to take cases to trial when defendants refuse to accept responsibility for their actions — particularly in situations where death or devastating injuries have been caused by careless commercial trucking companies, sloppy health care and manufacturers of defective products. Tommy secured one of the first verdicts over a million dollars in Georgia history — a $1.2 million verdict in a 1982 jury trial against a trucking company involving the needless death of a 7-year-old girl. Throughout his career, Tommy continued achieving record verdicts, including a recent verdict of over $49 million against two careless trucking companies for causing a severe brain injury to a pre-med college student.

Likewise, Adam has continued this tradition and has broken his father's record verdict in their hometown of Albany with a $24.5 million verdict in a medical negligence case for a 14-year-old football player.

Making Our Hospitals & Roads Safer

In addition to the many multimillion-dollar recoveries we at Malone Law have obtained for our clients, we take pride in our ability to drive positive change in our community.

An inevitable result of many of the verdicts and settlements we obtain is system change to correct their actions to prevent similar harm from occurring to others in the future.

Our attorneys and staff work diligently to make life better for our clients as well as those in our community.

"Together we've been able to not only make a difference for our clients," says Adam, "but also do our part in helping to make roadways and hospitals safer for everyone."
