Our Latest Results, Cases & News

On September 24, 2004, our firm won a not guilty verdict for a Covington, Georgia man accused of Malice Murder, Felony Murder and Aggrevated Assault. The verdict came after a four day jury trial in the Superior Court of Dekalb County, Georgia before Chief Judge Linda Hunter. Our client was wrongfully accused by two men of shooting a Dekalb County man in a parking lot at a grocery store near Panola Road. Under blistering cross examination of the State's witnesses, we were able to prove that the State had absolutely no physical evidence of any nature pointing to our client as the shooter and even the eyewitness identified the two people the State called to testify against our client. We are happy to report the man, who spent ten months in jail, is now home with his wife and two babies, celebrating his freedom. The case is State of Georgia v. Orlando Price

Our firm recently won a $77,000 breach of contract case against a major Atlanta area trucking company. The Complaint alleged that our client had performed work on various jobs throughout the county and was not paid for the work.

Our client is now suing the department store for false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, false arrest and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Click here to read the Complaint

Our firm successfully defended a man wrongfully accussed of serious felony charges in Georgia. The Monroe Police Department unconstitutionally coerced a confession from our client, which we successfully had thrown out in Court. The case is State v. Kit Wilson

A man was injured in an automobile collision with an insured. The insurance company offered to settle the claim, but the client hired an attorney to file an action on his behalf. The attorney did not file the action, asserting that he was unable to locate the insured within the limitation period. Believing his claim was time-barred, the client agreed to settle with the insurance company for an amount the attorney negotiated, but the client refused to sign the settlement documents when he learned that the settlement included his wife's consortium damages. The client dismissed the attorney and hired a third party who was able to achieve a higher settlement on all claims, including those of the client's wife. The client, now represented by our firm, brought an action against his former attorney for professional malpractice, and the trial court granted the attorney's motion for summary judgment. Our firm was successful in obtaining a reversal in the Court of Appeals. The Court's opinion, based on Mr. Farnham's successful arguments, is now the standard for defining legal malpractice in Georgia. The case is Huntington v. Fishman

After a negligent home inspection, an arbitrator awarded judgment for the homeowners, represented by our firm, in their suit against the inspector, brought under the Georgia Arbitration Code.

The Defendant was one of nine persons charged in connection with kidnapping and murder. Mr. Farnham successfully convinced the Court of Appeals that an error had been made during the trial of the defendant, resulting in the Court of Appeals vacating the aggravated assault conviction and sentence. The case is Kirk v. the State

The DeKalb Superior Court awarded attorney fees to an employer in an employee's action against the employer. The employee, represented by Mr. Farnham, challenged on direct appeal the award of attorney fees. The employer moved to dismiss the appeal on jurisdictional grounds. The Court of Appeals found in favor of Mr. Farnham's client, holding that the trial court erred as a matter of law in entering the award and erred in granting attorney fees and expenses. The case is Hallman v. Emory University
