Samples of success
The settlements and verdicts that follow are a small sample of successes we have enjoyed over the years. We continue to work to add more to this list. Please keep in mind that every case is unique and must be evaluated on the basis of its own facts and circumstances. For example, one of the factors that can affect the value of a case is its location. Some counties and states typically award verdicts and settlements that differ in value from each other. We at Hasty Pope LLP handle cases in small rural communities as well as large cities throughout Georgia and the southeast United States.
