A Well-Respected Authority On Medical Malpractice – A New Approach
Medical malpractice cases are some of the most devastating in the personal injury field. Patients often have their worlds turned completely upside-down – and sometimes lose their lives – as a result of preventable mistakes and oversights by the medical profession.
At Webb Law LLC, I am committed to seeking compensation for victims of medical negligence in Georgia.
In my four decades of practice, I have recovered millions of dollars for my clients in medical malpractice, personal injury and wrongful death cases.
I have become a well-respected name in the medical malpractice field of personal injury – and I have the results and credentials to back it up. I am a double Board certified expert in trial and pretrial advocacy through the State Bar of Georgia. I’m a frequent seminar speaker on medical malpractice topics for the legal community. I am also a certified arbitrator and mediator.

Why I Chose This Career Path
Before becoming a lawyer, I served in field artillery for the military in Vietnam. Upon my return, I worked for several years as an insurance claims adjuster before going to law school. My first job as an attorney was with an insurance defense lawyer. However, I quickly found that I could not stomach defending insurance companies, and I wanted to represent plaintiffs in their pursuit of justice. So I went to work for the best plaintiffs’ law firm in town.
At that time – 1979 – almost nobody was doing medical malpractice cases. They were notoriously tough cases and almost impossible for a patient to win. When a senior partner asked me which area of personal injury work interested me the most, he was surprised when I said “medical malpractice.” I explained that I was confident I could handle these difficult cases. I was drawn to the intellectual challenge and the fact that each case is so different. It was like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle: one I could solve if I worked on it diligently. I was confident that I could win cases – even if they were complicated – for severely injured patients.
I filed my first medical malpractice case in Orlando, Florida. It turned out to be the biggest case our firm had ever handled. I prevailed, and from that point on, I concentrated on medical negligence work.
A few years later, my wife and I moved back to the Atlanta area, where we had both grown up. It felt good to be home.
Why Hire Me To Help You – A Novel Approach
In September 2022, I withdrew from my previous law firm (at almost 76 years of age) to cut back on my law practice. The lawyers in my old firm still handle medical malpractice cases. Over that firm’s 30-year existence, we built an excellent reputation while handling thousands of cases. I left to become the only lawyer in my new firm, Webb Law LLC. I wanted to start a firm that concentrates on trying to resolve cases without going through the full litigation process (which often takes 3-5 years). I have tried and won many malpractice trials in my career. During this time, I established relationships with other excellent malpractice attorneys and thousands of highly qualified doctors in various fields who are willing to evaluate and testify in cases as long as the feel the case is meritorious.
If you look on the internet, you will see many law firms listed as handling medical malpractice cases. They are trying to attract new cases. It might surprise you to know that:
- Many lawyers “advertise” that they handle medical malpractice cases when:
- They have never tried a malpractice case before a jury and won it. Ask them about their trial record when you are considering hiring a lawyer.
- They have no intention of trying or even evaluating your case or anyone else’s. They are simply interested in “signing you up” and transferring your case to some experienced lawyer (like me) who knows what they are doing for a portion of the attorney’s fee. They will only “broker” your case, not handle or evaluate it.
- I actually know several lawyers who self-identify as an “experienced medical malpractice lawyer” who have never won a malpractice jury trial – that is not likely someone you want to represent you.
If you contact me about your case, and I agree to evaluate it, I will make a good-faith effort to determine:
- Whether or not you have a case; and
- If your case is worth pursuing
If I conclude, based on many years of experience that you likely have a valid case, I will do one of two things:
- Attempt to settle it without filing a suit – and, if successful, I will charge you a reduced fee because I will not have to go through lengthy and expensive litigation.
- If I am unable to settle your case, and litigation is necessary, then I will most likely not personally handle it, but will help you find the right, experienced medical malpractice litigator to properly represent you through the litigation process.
Why you should consider me rather than some case broker you find online?
- In most cases, you simply can’t tell from a website which attorneys are truly qualified to handle your case
- In the right case, I can try to help you resolve it quickly, for a reduced fee without going through litigation
If you have a straightforward case where a health care provider erred and caused a serious injury and you want to discuss the likelihood of obtaining an early settlement, please consider calling and let me give you some professional advice about what you should do to protect your rights and receive appropriate compensation.
