For over 50 years, the lawyers at Finch McCranie have achieved a remarkable record of success in tough civil and criminal cases. They have recovered more than $500 million in verdicts and settlements in civil cases and obtained acquittals and dismissals in complex federal criminal cases. With a deep bench of lawyers who have successfully tried over 100 cases in courtrooms across the country, the firm provides all of its clients with a powerhouse legal team.

Drawing on decades of experience working in government, business, and international law firms, Finch McCranie's lawyers bring unrivaled skill and judgment to the most difficult cases.Many of the firm's lawyers have won accolades for high professional achievement from esteemed organizations like Martindale-Hubbell, Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers.

Although the firm's lawyers are qualified to handle any matter that may ultimately get resolved in a courtroom, the majority of the firm's work is focused on five primary practice areas: (1) Personal Injury & Wrongful Death, (2) White Collar Criminal Defense, (3) Whistleblower & Qui Tam Cases, (4) Securities Enforcement & Regulation, and (5) Monitorships and Internal Investigations.

Personal Injury and WRONGFUL death

In our over 50 years as a firm, we have remained unlike other personal injury and wrongful death firms, never advertising and not being a high volume shop. Instead, we are very selective about the cases that we handle, because personal injury and wrongful death matters are usually labor and time intensive. Consequently, by being very selective with the cases we take, we are able to give each case the time, attention, and resources that it needs to get the best possible result, regardless of whether that means getting the case resolved with a jury trial or a settlement.

White Collar Criminal Defense

Regarding our white collar criminal defense practice, by design, we are small, but formidable. We handle big cases with potentially big consequences. And time and time again, we have proven that with hard work, determination and the skills that we have developed through our years of experience in handling high stakes federal criminal matters, we can obtain exceptional results. Like most of the other matters we handle, white collar matters are also time and labor intensive. For that reason, we usually staff our major white collar cases with several lawyers, each of whom serves as an integral member of an important and essential team. Of course, the most important member of the team is the individual that we represent. He or she almost always plays a key role in developing the defense, with each lawyer performing critical functions, such as organizing massive amounts of discovery, writing critical pretrial motions, overseeing the defense investigation, and ultimately presenting the defense in a courtroom.

Whistleblower Practice

With respect to our whistleblower practice, we have assembled a team of lawyers with a level of experience in these matters that is simply unmatched by any other firm. Our whistleblower team includes a former U.S. Deputy Attorney General, a former SEC Regional Commissioner, three former federal prosecutors, and a lawyer who served as a federal judicial law clerk on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, before gaining years of experience handling whistleblower cases under the False Claims Act. Whistleblower matters can often be very complex, from both a factual and legal standpoint. But our lawyers have decades of experience handling the most challenging and sophisticated whistleblower cases that exist here in Georgia, and throughout the United States.

Securities Enforcement & Regulation

Although our Securities Enforcement and Regulation practice group was only recently established, we have already become the go-to firm in these important matters. This group is headed by Walter Jospin, the former Director of the Atlanta Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In addition to Mr. Jospin, this group also includes five former federal prosecutors, and a former federal public defender, all of whom have significant litigation experience.
