Georgia LawyerJoseph A. Fried

Based out of Atlanta Georgia, Joe Fried is a nationally prominent truck collision lawyer. He is one of only a few plaintiff lawyers in the country who dedicates nearly 100% of his practice to commercial vehicle crash cases. He has successfully handled cases in over 20 states with verdicts and settlements approaching $200 million. A former police officer with specialized training in accident reconstruction, roadway and vehicle design, biomechanics, and human factors, Joe brings a strong technical expertise to each case; but he credits his success not to technical expertise, but to his unique way of developing and presenting the compelling human story of each of his cases. Joe is on the faculty of the prestigious Gerry Spence Trail Lawyers College in Wyoming where he studies and teaches the application of psychodramatic and storytelling techniques to the preparation and presentation of legal cases. Joe serves on the Executive Board of the American Association of Justice Trucking Litigation Group, the Southern Trial Lawyers Association, and the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America. Joe has been named a Georgia Super Lawyer, one of the top 100 lawyers in Georgia and Georgia Lawyer of Distinction.
