Jason L. Nohr (“Jay”) has over 20 years experience handling complex civil litigation in the state and federal courts of Georgia. Martindale-Hubbell has awarded Jay with its AV® Preeminent™ rating, the highest peer-review rating available. According to Martindale-Hubbell, an AV® rating identifies a lawyer with very high to preeminent legal ability, and is a reflection of his expertise, experience, integrity and overall professional excellence.
Jay represents individuals who have suffered serious injury, wrongful death, and financial loss caused by negligence and misconduct, and has a documented history of successful results for his clients through jury-trial verdicts and settlements See Jay’s Results. His trial practice primarily involves serious personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, birth injury, motor vehicle collisions, professional negligence, nursing home and elder abuse, premises liability, and injuries and death resulting from recreational boating. Jay was lead counsel for what is regarded as the only plaintiff’s verdict in a shoulder dystocia birth injury (medical malpractice) case in Georgia.
Jay is also an experienced appellate advocate with successful appeals in the Georgia Supreme Court, Georgia Court of Appeals and Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, including the first appellate case in Georgia addressing a nursing home’s attempt to enforce an arbitration clause in a resident’s admission agreement. On behalf of the family of a deceased resident, Jay successfully defeated the nursing home’s attempt to avoid a jury and force the case to arbitration, thereby helping preserve the right to a jury trial for all Georgia nursing home residents and their families. See Ashburn Health Care Center Inc. v. Poole, 286 Ga. App. 24, 648 S.E.2d 430 (2007).

During our lawsuit, several liens were placed against our case from several insurance companies. Jason rebutted the claims of the insurance companies and made them settle for pennies on the dollar! For this I commend him!!!
In the end, the defense did exactly what we wanted them to do. Our case was settled out of court and my wife and I are extremely happy with the outcome.
Thanks again Jason!!!
