Attorney Profile

As founding and managing partner at Edmond Lindsay & Atkins, LLP, Roderick E. Edmond, M.D., holds negligent parties across Georgia responsible for the damages they cause in personal injury and wrongful death cases. He has successfully handled matters that include trucking accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and premises liability. Additionally, his practice includes employment discrimination and commercial litigation.

In 1983, Dr. Edmond received a Bachelor of Science in biology from Morehouse College. He then graduated with a medical degree from Duke University and served as a captain, physician and surgeon for the U.S. Army for five years. In 1993, he earned a Juris Doctor from Georgetown Law.

In the early part of his career, Dr. Edmond was a medical director at an Atlanta jail, and he operated a medical-legal consulting company for years. It goes without saying that Dr. Edmond’s medical background is invaluable when handling nursing home abuse, medical negligence and other catastrophic injury cases. He has an eye for when physicians and other medical personnel stray from the standard of care. Additionally, he has an extensive network of peers whom he turns to as expert witnesses who can attest to a client’s damages.

Among his accomplishments, Dr. Edmond secured one of the largest medical malpractice settlements in a South Carolina county in a case involving a diagnostic error. In fact, he has obtained millions of dollars on behalf of victims of negligence. Just as importantly, he treats the people he represents with compassion and integrity.

Dr. Edmond is a member of the American Bar Association, the National Medical Association, the American Medical Association and the American Association for Justice.

Outside his practice, Dr. Edmond enjoys spending time with family and coaching youth sports.
