Three years ago, we launched RDU INJURY LAW (a division of Howard, Stallings, From, Atkins, Angell & Davis, P.A.) as a way to brand our personal injury practice and highlight the efforts of our partners who litigate serious injury and wrongful death claims. It was a bit of an experiment, and we did not know how people would react, but look at us now! Within a year, we were recognized by the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and within two years our partners, Robby Jessup and Joan Davis, were awarded lifetime memberships in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Several cases we are litigating have made local news, and one case grabbed headlines across the nation and the world, including The Washington Post, and The Times in London. Just last week, we were named among the “Best Personal Injury Attorneys in Raleigh for 2020” by Expertise.com, and “Top Lawyers 2020 for the Raleigh Area” by Respected Lawyers.com.*
Of course, the success of RDU INJURY LAW is no surprise to people who know our law firm. Our firm is built on the shoulders of giants. Cader Howard, Joe Stallings and Allan From are each well-known in their respective fields of business law, civil litigation, and estate planning. Over the last thirty-seven years, we have assembled an impressive group of litigators, known for their integrity, knowledge, and professionalism. They are completely undaunted by hard work, and their success is evident. RDU INJURY LAW’s results have been featured in Large Verdict and Settlement articles five times in the last two years in Lawyers Weekly and Trial Briefs.
Robby Jessup and Joan Davis of Raleigh, N.C., have been inducted as lifetime members of The Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won multi-million dollar verdicts, awards and settlements. Forum membership acknowledges excellence in advocacy, and provides members with a national network of experienced colleagues for professional referral and information exchange in major cases. Members must have acted as principal counsel in at least one case in which their client has received a verdict, award or settlement in the amount of two million dollars or more.
