Our co-founder Tricia Derr took on the second “hot coffee” case to hit the nation. This time, the allegations came from a police officer who claimed that, though he received a cup of Starbucks coffee for free, it spilled on him and he sustained third-degree burns. He wanted to hold Starbucks accountable, but Derr found his story didn’t add up.
Our attorneys represent some of the largest healthcare providers, municipalities, and Fortune 500 companies throughout the Southeast. We’ve logged more than 10,000 hours in the courtroom and 150-plus years of combined practice experience.
The relationship between client and attorney is an intimate one. It requires commitment and time, vulnerability, and trust. And you don’t know if there is a “fit” unless you survey the competitive landscape.
