National Trial Lawyers member Tommy Malone, who is battling stomach cancer, is being honored by his peers who are funding a scholarship at Mercer University Law School in his name. That’s where Malone earned his J.D. in 1966. Malone went on to found the Malone Law Firm in Atlanta and has tried personal injury and wrongful death cases for more than 40 years. According to The Daily Report, one of the lawyers donating to the scholarship fund, Brent Savage, called Malone “the best trial lawyer in Georgia in my lifetime.” National Trial Lawyers member Robert “Bart” Turner, another Mercer alumnus, is also one of the scholarship’s founders.
