MR. CITRON’S DIVERSE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCES UNIQUELY POSITION HIM TO EXECUTE GOLF CART LAW’S MISSION.
Mr. Citron, a 1998 honors graduate of the Georgia State University College of Law, was a member of the competitive trial teams and competed in the ATLA (now the AAJ) National Championships. During law school, he was the symposium editor of the Law Review, a member of its sport and entertainment law society and later served on its graduate leadership council.
From 2003 until 2006, Mr. Citron served as the head coach of the Emory University School of Law’s mock trial teams, where he successfully guided a team of five law students to a fifth place showing in the 2005 national championship.
Mr. Citron began his legal career with one of the largest law firms in the country, Holland & Knight, LLP, as a commercial and civil litigator in complex commercial matters, including product liability and significant personal injury and wrongful death cases, including a significant number of injury and death cases related to defective tires.
During Mr. Citron’s fellowship with the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, he won the largest punitive damage Award, $50,000.00, granted by the Fulton County Magistrate Dispossessory Court, up until that time. Mr. Citron has, on numerous occasions, credited his time at the Legal Aid Society as one of the most humbling experiences of his legal career, which provide him insight to the confusion of the average, everyday working person when confronted with serious legal issues. He realized that people should have access to good legal counsel for their problems and should be able to approach them without any fear or hesitation.
To pursue his passion for and abilities in a courtroom, Mr. Citron left Holland & Knight and shortly thereafter, he joined the Law Offices of George A. Stein, later Stein & Ward. Based upon a number of his personal and professional successes, the firm offered Mr. Citron a partnership in its civil litigation practice. He became partner at the Stein-Citron Law Group and was one of the initial founders, pioneers, and developers of the SteelHorse Law brand.
During his time with SteelHorse Law, newspaper articles recognized Mr. Citron for successfully litigating a case in which a client was run off the road by an unidentified driver. As a result of Mr. Citron’s tenacity, the case was settled for $270,000.00. He also successfully arbitrated a product defect case involving a single motor trike rollover accident, resulting in an arbitration award of $750,000. In 2011, Mr. Citron successfully leveraged a $700,000.00 bad faith insurance settlement from a carrier that failed in its obligations to its insured during the settlement negotiation processes. He has successfully arbitrated and tried a number of other cases and has settled two cases, prior to filing any litigation, for more than a million dollars each.
Mr. Citron lives in Decatur, Georgia with his three children and is active in local events and organizations, including the Decatur Business Association, the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, and The Temple
