Freeman Jr., a legendary Atlanta trial lawyer known for defending the Eli Lilly pharmaceutical company in suicide cases, representing JCPenney in flammable pajama cases and serving as national counsel for Chrysler.
Early in his career, Steve handled both plaintiff and defense cases, but after he represented the family of a six-year-old girl who suffered severe burns on 80% of her body due to a polyurethane foam mattress, he knew he wanted to dedicate his career to righting the wrongs caused by big corporations and defective products. He is a passionate advocate for clients and has a strong track record of winning cases against major corporations.
Steve excels at product liability cases and tried Zakrocki v. Ford Motor Company case, securing a $10.6 million verdict in New Jersey after demonstrating that his client’s Ford Explorer suffered from a defect that the auto manufacturer knew about and attempted to conceal. He also demonstrated Ford’s negligence in Mundy v. Ford Motor Company, which resulted in a federal investigation of the company and an impressive $40 million jury verdict.
Steve currently serves in leadership positions in numerous organizations, including the Board of Governors of American Association of Justice, Executive Committee of Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, Green Law Board of Directors and Board of Directors of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association.
