Adam William Malone

Adam Malone has a trial practice focused on helping families in cases involving brain and spinal cord injuries, burns, amputations, and wrongful death. Adam is recognized as a member of Best Lawyers in America, the oldest peer-review publication in the legal profession. Adam has also been recognized as one of Georgia top trial lawyers and is annually selected as one of Georgia’s Top 100 Lawyers as published in Atlanta Magazine, Super Lawyers. Adam is listed with the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory with an AV Preeminent rating, the highest rating available for ethics and legal ability and has been designated by judges and his professional colleagues as preeminent in his field. Adam is board certified in the complex area of medical negligence by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA). He has been selected by peers for inclusion in each edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the specialties of Medical Malpractice Law and Personal Injury Litigation since 2010.

In describing what may set Adam apart from others, one judge observed that "some lawyers come in and pound the podium, then there are the ones who pound the books. And you can always tell who they are." Adam's opposing counsel have described him as "a real gentleman" and a "consummate trial lawyer."

In 2008, Adam was featured as one of the top 12 lawyers in Georgia under the age of 40 by the Fulton County Daily Report. That year, the National Law Journal highlighted one of his jury verdicts as one of the Top 100 Verdicts in the nation in 2008. That case arose out of the needless amputation of a 14 year-old athlete's right leg due to careless communication between the doctor and nurses attending him and resulted in a record-setting jury verdict of $24,529,286.00.

In 2009, Adam was featured by Georgia Trend magazine as one of Georgia's Best & Brightest under the age of 40.

Adam has been honored for his work in the appellate courts of Georgia. Adam was lead counsel in Atlanta Oculoplastic Surgery, P.C. v. Nestlehutt, et al., 286 Ga. 731 (2010) where the Georgia Supreme Court unanimously held a law placing a $350,000 cap on noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases to be an unconstitutional violation of the sacred right to trial by jury.

The Georgia Trial Lawyers Association honored him and his clients with the Courageous Pursuit of Justice Award for their work and determination in that case. The Supreme Court's opinion can be found at Atlanta Oculoplastic Surgery, P.C. v. Nestlehutt, et al. Ga. S. Ct., S09A1432, March 22, 2010.

Adam also has vast experience helping victims of brain and spinal cord injury and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice where he is privileged to help victims and families of brain injury across America.
