An accomplished and widely respected trial lawyer, Hubert E. Hamilton represents clients in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama and nationally in a wide variety of personal injury cases from his firm based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He puts nearly four decades of legal experience to work vigorously representing victims and their families in cases of car and truck accidents, defective products, poorly maintained roads, industrial accidents and construction site injuries and other workplace injuries. His focus on personal attention and ethical but aggressive representation has won millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for his clients. In 1991, he was instrumental in winning the case that overturned portions of the tort reform laws passed in Georgia.
Mr. Hamilton obtained his law degree from Mercer University Law School in 1976 and started out in the trenches trying difficult criminal and civil jury cases. After several years of general trial practice, he focused on serious personal injury and death cases, as a partner in a Rossville, Georgia law firm. He opened his own firm in Chattanooga in 1998 to concentrate on catastrophic injury case. As a licensed attorney in Tennessee and Georgia, he is also a board-certified civil trial specialist and is licensed to practice in the United States District Courts for the Middle District of Georgia, the Northern District of Georgia, the Eastern District of Tennessee and the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Hamilton is also actively involved in state and national trial lawyers associations, such as the American Association for Justice, the Tennessee Association for Justice and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. He has been honored with the distinguished rating of AV-Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell, which indicates his exceptionally high level of professionalism, integrity and stalwart adherence to industry standards.
As a sought-after presenter, he has spoken at seminars and conferences on a wide range of topics pertaining to trucking, work place injuries, technology and law, no-fault insurance, strategies for winning cases, tort reform, slip-and-fall verdicts and third-party liability in DUIs. In addition, he has had three articles published in The Verdict, the official journal of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.
