Firm's victory in Flippen v. AGL Resources case places them in select company of most "astounding results" in state's courtrooms in past year

This recognition is a reflection of the hard work we do to represent each one of our clients every single day.

The Georgia law firm Hasty Pope LLP has been recognized in a special report for securing one of the Top Georgia Verdicts of 2009.

A story regarding the top verdicts of the past year was published in the October 18, 2010 issue of the Daily Report, an ALM publication and Georgia's leading legal newspaper. The report serves as a diary of "those at the top of their craft . . . who deliver astounding results" for their clients.

The case that garnered the firm this recognition was Flippen v. AGL Resources (Case No. A10A0434), a car accident dispute that resulted in a jury verdict of more than $1 million for Hasty Pope's client. The plaintiff was rear-ended on the exit ramp of a Georgia freeway by an Atlanta Gas Light Van. She was treated conservatively for two years in an attempt to avoid surgery, but was forced to undergo cervical fusion three years later and lumbar fusion five years later.

Hasty Pope is a highly regarded law firm in Georgia and is well-respected for the legal expertise of its senior attorneys. In August, Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue issued an executive order earlier this month to appoint Marion T. Pope, Jr. as Senior Appellate Judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals. In April, Jonathan Pope, a founding partner of the law firm and Judge Pope's son, was appointed vice president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA), representing the 7th Congressional District of Georgia.

"We are pleased to rank among such elite company with other law firms in Georgia on the Daily Report's list of Top Georgia Verdicts of 2009," said Jonathan Pope, a highly regarded personal injury and wrongful death attorney who has practiced in Georgia for 15 years. "This recognition is a reflection of the hard work we do to represent each one of our clients every single day."

The attorneys of Hasty Pope LLP are dedicated to representing seriously injured individuals, as well as those who have lost a loved one as a result of someone else's negligence. With more than 100 years of combined experience, the auto accident attorneys at Hasty Pope treat clients with respect and compassion, with many new clients being referred by people the firm has helped in the past.
