David Long-Daniels

SHAREHOLDER AT GREENBERG TRAURIG, LLP, ATLANTA RECOGNIZED FOR EMPLOYMENT LAW MANAGEMENT SINCE 2018

IN TH E L AW

Why do you think people of color have trouble accessing legal services? It’s directly related to the cost of legal services and, also, the sparse number of lawyers of color. This is especially aggravated by legal specialties. I was shocked a couple of years ago when I helped a nephew address a potential criminal matter. There was a courtroom full of people of color facing charges, but the overwhelming majority were not represented by counsel. Consequently, they were making deals with the solicitor without a full understanding of how this record would affect their future job opportunities. What steps can we take toward a solution? We need to enhance funding of public defenders’ offices and/or require all lawyers barred within the jurisdiction to fulfill pro bono hours toward the indigent in criminal matters.

BREAKING THE LEGAL COLOR BARRIER

Services as basic as mere access to a lawyer often eludes the disadvantaged and minorities in civil cases. What can the legal profession do to ensure equality of access for all?

Linda Klein

SENIOR MANAGING SHAREHOLDER AT BAKER DONELSON, ATLANTA; PAST PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION RECOGNIZED FOR ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION SINCE 2006

ETTING PROPER legal help can prevent someone from being unjustly evicted, wrongly convicted of a crime, and much more—yet securing access to legal services has been a problem of long standing for people of color and other disadvantaged communities. The Center for American Progress (CAP), a think tank in Washington, D.C., notes that the gap between legal needs and available services exacerbates systemic inequities. In more than three-fourths of civil cases in the U.S., for example, at least one litigant lacks a lawyer. People of color, women, immigrants, the elderly, the disabled and LGBT individuals are more likely to live in poverty and to need legal assistance, according to CAP—and unlike in criminal cases, parties in civil cases have no core right to counsel. Although every state has established a right to counsel for a few kinds of civil cases, most that involve basic human needs such as In over three-fourths of housing don’t qualify. Anyone civil cases in the U.S., at who can’t afford a lawyer least one litigant does not is therefore at a significant have a lawyer. disadvantage. Here, two Best Lawyers–recognized attorneys offer their thoughts. 4 |

By Janice Zhou

Atlanta is known as the “Black Mecca of the South.” Do you think people in Georgia have specific problems accessing legal services, though? Georgia, unfortunately, is burdened by large areas of extreme poverty and a big access-to-justice gap— indeed, we have seven counties with no lawyers. Poor people have a disproportionate number of legal needs, and they live in areas where there is no one to help. Additionally, lawyers who work for legal-aid organizations, such as Georgia Legal Services, must travel vast distances to bring justice to their clients. (Georgia is the largest state by area east of the Mississippi River). This exacerbates the justice gap. How can this be resolved? There won’t be one solution short of recognition of a right to access to civil legal services, the so-called “civil Gideon.” Until then, we need a combination of volunteers and paid legal-services lawyers. We need navigators, such as law-firm paralegals and other trained volunteers, to help people who have no experience with our legal system find the lawyers they need. We need programs such as Project Rural Practice, in South Dakota, or programs that solve problems in specific areas of the law, such as the Safe and Stable Homes project from the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation. How does Georgia compare to the rest of the country in terms of access to legal services for people of color? Fordham Law School’s National Center for Access to Justice has done a detailed study of how states compare. While Georgia generally does not rank high compared to other states, there’s always room for improvement in every jurisdiction. Excellent research is also being done by the Center for Access to Justice at Georgia State Law School.

VERYONE EXPERIENCES significant change, good and bad, at some point over a lifetime. Billy N. Jones, Savannah’s 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” in Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs, will be there for you when things take a turn for the worse. “I enjoy helping people who find themselves, through no fault of their own, involved in some lifechanging experience and who need the support and assistance of a lawyer to navigate the complicated judicial system,” Jones says. He joined the firm now known as Jones, Osteen & Jones in 1973, and one case in particular has stuck out over the ensuing 46 years. “It involved Bruce Lowie versus Golden Isles Cruise Lines, which operated a gambling casino vessel named the Emerald Princess,” he explains. “Bruce had fallen through an open manhole on the Emerald Princess and was badly

injured. When he retained our law firm, the statute of limitations had expired. We were able to reinstate his case by proving that he had been badly misled by the insurance adjustor for Golden Isles Cruise Lines, who had encouraged him not to file suit.” Jones found a resolution for Lowie: a verdict of $2,232,000. “We were able to expose the fraudulent scheme used to deprive Bruce of his rights, and the trial court allowed the case to proceed to verdict,” he says. “The verdict was affirmed by the Georgia Court of Appeals.” Given his experience in cases like these, Jones believes there are three qualities that make a great attorney in his field: “You have to have compassion and empathy for your clients,” he says, “and you must have the courage to try your cases when you know your client has not received an adequate offer to settle their case.”

THE MALONE LEGACY

Adam Malone continues the legacy of improving lives he and his late father, Tommy Malone, achieved together.

ALONE L AW ’ S pursuit of justice began more than 50 years ago when legendary litigator, the late Tommy Malone, opened the firm in small town Albany, Georgia in 1965, at a historic time of national change and progress. Adam Malone, Tommy’s son and law partner for more than 17 years, continues the tradition of excellence he and his father established by obtaining justice for the victims of catastrophic injury and wrongful death, and continues to bring about positive change for citizens throughout Georgia. While Adam’s main objective is to improve the lives of his clients, he hopes by focusing the substantial resources of the entire firm on only a few select cases at a time, he can also effect systemic change to help avoid future disasters involving the same preventable errors. “[We] hope that our efforts and results transcend any one case by bringing about positive changes for our entire community,” Adam Malone says. This desire for positive, wide-reaching cha nge was instilled in Ada m as he watched his father accomplish the same during his illustrious 50-year career. Adam was inspired as his father secured

“We hope that our efforts and results transcend any one case by bringing about positive changes for our entire community.” changes which made managed healthcare safer for all. Adam leads the charge for Malone Law’s pursuit of justice and has himself obtained a $24.5 million record verdict in his hometown of Albany against a local hospital for the needless amputation of a 14-year-old football player’s leg. Adam’s efforts not only help his individual clients, but also target positive change for the citizens of Georgia. One of his proudest accomplishments is securing a verdict that led the Georgia Supreme Court to declare arbitrary legislative caps on quality of

life damages unconstitutional in medical malpractice cases. This unanimous Supreme Court ruling ensures the right to a trial by jury and a full verdict for those negligently injured by the carelessness of others. Over the course of the firm’s history, Ma lone Law has received nu merous accolades and honors for its hard work. Since 2010 Adam has been an annual fixture in The Best Lawyers in America ©, in the areas of Personal Injury Litigation– Plaintiffs and Medical Malpractice Law– Plaintiffs. In 2016, Best Lawyers named him Atlanta’s “Lawyer of the Year” in Medical Malpractice Law. He has also been named one of the top 10 Super Lawyers in Georgia for three years in a row. Like his father before him, Adam holds the highest rating by Martindale-Hubbell as AV Preeminent in legal ability and ethics and is among a small number of lawyers who have been board-certified by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA) in the field of medical negligence. Malone Law is also dedicated to many philanthropic statewide and community endeavors, helping to raise awareness for injury prevention and to improve the lives of residents in Georgia and beyond.

Atlanta’s 2020 Litigation Insurance “Lawyer of the Year,” Lisa Bondurant, on leadership, learning, and how to forge a true understanding of your clients.

By Janice Zhou

WO WORDS BEST EXEMPLIFY Nonprofit / Charities Law Lisa Bondurant’s laudable career: experience ALSTON & BIRD and focus. A partner at Womble Bond Benjamin T. White Dickinson, Bondurant—named Atlanta’s 2020 “Lawyer BURR & FORMAN James M. McCarten of the Year” in Litigation - Insurance—has been doing HASSON LAW GROUP legal work for multinational insurance companies for James K. Hasson, Jr. LAW OFFICE OF W. MARSHALL 30 years. “I think I’ve just become known as one of the SANDERS lawyers who truly represents insurance companies in W. Marshall Sanders a broad way but also with good success,” she says. TAYLOR ENGLISH DUMA John C. Sawyer In addition to her extensive work as an insurance Personal Injury Litigation attorney, Bondurant has held a number of leadership positions in a variety of insurance-industry ALSTON & BIRD Bernard Taylor, Sr. (D) organizations. She’s past chair of the Life, Health, BALCH & BINGHAM and Disability Committee for the Defense Research James Dartlin Meadows (D) BIRD LAW GROUP Institute, as well as for the Life Insurance Committee William Q. Bird (D, P) for the American Bar Association, Litigation Sect BRODHEAD LAW and Tort, Trial and Insurance Practice Section, and Ben C. Brodhead III (P) BUTLER LAW FIRM many others. Jeb Butler (P) Those leadership roles highlight “my focus on the CARLOCK, COPELAND & STAIR Thomas S. Carlock (D), D. Gary industry,” she says. “Ultimately, one thing I could Lovell, Jr. (D) point to [as a reason I’ve been named ‘Lawyer of the CARR & WEATHERBY Year’] is certainly not a recent accomplishment— W. Pitts Carr (D, P) CASH, KRUGLER & FREDERICKS it’s 30 years of sustained and focused work for the Andrew B. Cash (P), Alwyn R. insurance industry.” Fredericks (D, P), Philip C. Henry (P) CHILDERS, SCHLUETER & SMITH Aspects of her practice area that Bondurant C. Andrew Childers (P), Richard R. finds especially worthwhile are constant learning Schlueter (P), M. Brandon Smith (P) and the insights she gains into her clients. “When DAVIS ADAMS Jess Davis (P) you’re working in the insurance industry, you’re DENNIS, CORRY, SMITH & DIXON often confronted with a task of learning a new Grant B. Smith (D) DOFFERMYRE SHIELDS CANFIELD & business, because the insurance company will KNOWLES relate to providing coverage to that business—so Robert E. Shields (P) the variety of what you handle is really rewarding,” DUANE MORRIS William D. Barwick (D) she says. “I found so much pleasure in doing a deep FINCH MCCRANIE dive into particular industries and understanding Richard W. Hendrix (D) their business in order to represent the insurance FRIED ROGERS GOLDBERG Joseph A. Fried (P), Michael L. companies as best I can.” Goldberg (P), Brian D. Rogers (P) Also gratifying are the relationships she’s made. GOLDSTEIN & HAYES James Goldstein (P), Jonathan “There’s a small group of lawyers around the country who do a lot of work for insurance companies, and I’ve P. Hayes (P) gotten to know many in this space,” Bondurant says. page 13 “I consider them not just colleagues but good friends GRANT LAW OFFICE Wayne Grant (P) because we’ve litigated together, we’ve been together GREENBERG TRAURIG at industry meetings, we’ve taken on the insurance Lori G. Cohen (D) companies as our clients and advocated for them.” HALL BOOTH SMITH John E. Hall, Jr. (D), Jo A. Jagor (D) Her advice for anyone looking to become a HAWKINS PARNELL & YOUNG Warner S. Fox (D), Michael J. Goldman successful lawyer: Know the importance of truly (D), William H. Major III (D), David C. understanding your client. “What makes a great Marshall (D) lawyer is the same no matter what clients you HOLLAND & KNIGHT represent, but understanding a client’s business, Thomas B. Branch III (D) HORNSBY LAW GROUP understanding their goals, understanding what’s Chloe Dallaire (D, P) driving decisions before you jump into a case— HUNTON ANDREWS KURTH Matthew J. Calvert (D) that’s what really helps you distinguish yourself,” J. FRANKLIN BURNS Bondurant says. “You really have to dive deeply into J. Franklin Burns (P) your client’s business and be willing to roll up your J.TOM MORGAN J.Tom Morgan (P) sleeves and understand what the client needs.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE Adam Malone continues the legacy he and his father, Tommy Malone, built together of improving lives at their eponymous Georgia law firm. PHOTO BY DAEMON BAIZAN

ACHIEVE ITS MISSION of “making a meaningful difference,” Malone Law ensures each case receives the full attention, experience and resources of the entire firm, especially its lead counsel, Adam Malone. Drawing upon more than 50 years of litigation history Malone Law seeks justice for clients suffering from catastrophic injury or family members who have lost a loved one to wrongful death. Not only has Malone Law made history by securing record-setting verdicts of $49 million, $45 million, and $24.5 million for catastrophically injured families, but the firm is also shaping the future by helping overturn unconstitutional legislation. “Our ultimate mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we represent,” says Malone, “with a hope that our efforts transcend any one case by bringing about positive changes for our entire community.” “Malone Law focuses on a few cases at a time,” explains Malone. “Each client receives highly individualized attention, which provides hope for the greatest possible outcome.” This principle of limiting cases and prioritizing the client is one of the many characteristics that sets Malone Law apart from other firms. Malone assures each client from the beginning that he and his entire team will work tirelessly to prepare their case for trial, and if the case resolves prior to trial, it will be because the client determines a proposed settlement makes a meaningful difference in their life. Client dedication aside, the firm’s many accomplishments speak for themselves. Malone successfully obtained a verdict on behalf of Betty and Bruce Nestlehutt, which resulted in a Georgia Supreme Court decision declaring a law unconstitutional that placed an arbitrary cap on value of life damages in medical malpractice cases. The legislative reversal allows for a jury of peers, rather than politicians, to decide the value of an injured person’s losses in a medical negligence case. Malone says: “Proving the unconstitutionality of this legislative cap has been one of the most rewarding and impactful achievements of my career since it not only helped my clients—it helped all people.” But this was not the first time Malone Law made history. The firm’s mission to make a real difference began with Malone’s father, Tommy Malone, whose verdict for the unnecessary quadruple amputations of a 6-month-old child resulted in the enactment of legislation that changed the way managed care companies did business in the state. It is no surprise, then, that Malone, like his father before him, has received the highest legal accolades from his colleagues. Malone is included annually in The Best Lawyers in America© since 2010 in the practice areas of Personal Injury Litigation–Plaintiffs and Medical Malpractice Law–Plaintiffs. In 2016, Best Lawyers named him Atlanta’s “Lawyer of the Year” in Medical Malpractice Law. Malone has been chosen by his peers as one of the top 10 SuperLawyers in Georgia for the past three years, while his father, Tommy, was honored twice with a Lifetime Achievement Award. These honors, among many others, are well earned for a firm that strives daily to uphold its signature tradition of excellence.
