Finch McCranie LLP is a trial practice firm, with a long history of success. Founded in 1965 by Baxter Finch and Claude Ross, the firm quickly established itself as among the best plaintiffs’ personal injury firms in Georgia, with numerous notable plaintiffs’ verdicts. In the 60s and 70s, Baxter and Claude traveled throughout the state, trying cases regularly and cementing the firm's reputation as one of the premier plaintiffs’ firms in Georgia.
Among other notable accomplishments, the firm received the first million-dollar personal injury jury verdict in Georgia, and later the first five-million-dollar personal injury verdict in the state. Since its founding, Finch McCranie LLP’s personal injury lawyers have continued to set and break records in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases.
In addition to its personal injury and wrongful death practice, Finch McCranie LLP has also long handled sophisticated federal criminal cases, mostly in the white-collar area. The firm has considerable and unparalleled experience in federal criminal matters, with three partners being former federal prosecutors with the U.S. Department of Justice and another being a former Federal Public Defender. In recent years, Finch McCranie LLP added Larry Thompson, the former Deputy Attorney General of the United States, and Walter Jospin, Former Director of the Atlanta Office of the S.E.C. With its deep bench of federal criminal lawyers, Finch McCranie LLP has the proven and continued ability to handle any sophisticated federal criminal case.
Finch McCranie LLP also has a well-established whistleblower and qui tam practice, with one of its lawyers helping to author both of Georgia's qui tam whistleblower statutes, and two of its lawyers previously serving in senior leadership positions with the Department of Justice’s Civil Division. To date, our whistleblower and qui tam lawyers have been litigating False Claims Act cases over three decades - starting only two years after the United States enacted the modern False Claims Act in 1986. Our firm provides our clients unmatched knowledge, experience, and commitment to qui tam cases and other whistleblower cases.
In sum, we have a long history of success in catastrophic injury and death cases, federal criminal cases, and whistleblower cases.
