Drew is an experienced trial lawyer specializing in catastrophic personal injury, defective products, and chemical exposures. Drew has litigated in 15 states. He holds the record verdict in a large South Georgia county.

Drew has a special expertise in cases involving defective automobiles, aerial lifts and cranes, ATVs, boats, industrial equipment, and a variety of consumer and household products. To date, manufacturers have issued four separate nationwide recalls as a result of his work in cases; most of which were issued in almost unprecedented fashion – in the middle of litigation.

In addition to these areas, Drew has attained substantial verdicts and settlements in cases involving trucking collisions, auto crashes, complex multi-vehicle pileups, industrial injuries, and foodborne illness cases. Drew’s work has resulted in two eight-figure awards, and dozens of seven-figure awards for his clients.

Drew is also recognized as an expert in e-Discovery. He graduated from the renowned Georgetown e-Discovery Academy, has attended the Advanced e-Discovery Institute, and has been asked to speak all over the country on e-Discovery topics. Drew planned, organized, hosted, and spoke at the first ever e-Discovery conference for trial lawyers.

Most of Drew’s work comes from other attorneys, who refer him cases that are difficult and often require dedicated focus over several years. Drew takes special pride in taking cases that other law firms have turned down, and helping those families get the justice and accountability that they deserve.
